Good ole southern fried seafood. Rustic atmosphere and service. Down home good! Weekends can come with a short wait, but plenty of seating and they turn fairly quickly.

They've been in business for 30 years now. Easy to see why. The beer is cold, the onion rings are a specialty. Two of you can't finish the small order-- Catfish is great & the "Little Buddy" adds some great fried shrimp. You'll spend a lot of time just checking out the wall & ceiling decorations.

Clear Springs Restaurant has a variety of seafood items, but the Fried Catfish is their main dish. Also available are Fried Oysters ,Shrimp, and Crawfish. I tried the combination platter and I must say it was worth the wait The onion ring appetiser was also well done. Great place to eat.

If the wait at the Gristmill at Gruene is too intimidating for you try Clear Springs Cafe. This rustic eatery a few miles East of I 35 is an interesting alternative. They must serve a mountain of onion rings daily, order the smaller size which amply serves four people. Southern fried and grilled entrees on the menu. Catfish platter a... More

Great causal dining with lots of menu choices all the way to gumbo. Parking lot is small but waiting time is less than you'd expect. Very reasonable prices and food served hot with all the trimmings. Being from Georgia, I'd rather have grits instead of pinto beans with my catfish but, hey, that's not a big deal...I'd still go back... More
