Laid back country type restaurant serving a variety of food, burgers, steaks, seafood. I have a low carb no sugar lifestyle and this place easily accommodated me. I ordered grilled catfish & shrimp brochette which is shrimp wrapped with bacon and a jalapeno. Both were very good. I had green beans and broccoli as my sides. There was drawn butter... More

We have frequented the restaurant in Nacogdoches on numerous occasions and loved the seafood as well as the onion rings. While in New Braunfels we decided to try this restaurant as well and found the same quality food and wait staff. If you like a rustic atmosphere, simple table ware and great seafood this a place to go. However, depending... More

We are local so we don't just pass through. No advertising, none is necessary. Word of mouth keeps this restaurant filled no matter the time or day of week. The only "problem" is that in spite of it's capacity there can still be a bit of a wait to get in. Worth the wait!

The catfish has a cornmeal breading with a little spice to it, but you have to have their onion rings. They have a lighter, crispy... More

This restaurant has been around for a very long time. It has served generations of seafood lovers with its outstanding catfish, fried shrimp, hush puppies and legendary onion ring towers. Locals and visitors alike make this a frequent stop on their way in and out of New Braunfels towards Seguin and I 10. The waitstaff has been unfailingly polite and... More
