Great seafood

Everything here is good. The onion rings are a must. Good value for the food you get. The catfish and shrimp combo is excellent.

They serve the best shrimp, catfish, and oysters this side of the gulf!! Service was top notch!! Seating is rustic and may have a wait! But worth the time!! Desserts, especially the chocolate cake or peach cobbler, are exceptional and worth the money! Y'all may need two or more people to finish desert, unless y'all plan dessert only meal!!

After a long hiatus of visiting this restaurant we went back for the first time last fall. We had a great visit and were excited about visiting this spring. This time they put us in the main dining room which was nicer because the old building has lots cool stuff to look at. This time I had a hamburger, my... More

While a friend of mine were visiting the area we were looking for a place to eat. We found Clear Springs Restaurant by accident and this proved to be a very happy accident. We both had the Catfish / Fried Shrimp combo. Both were outstanding and the sides were very good. The tartar sauce is obviously homemade as is the... More

We have been here several times and love it every time! This is very close to New Braunfels and not far from the outlets. We always get the catfish and fries and it is wonderful. The building is old and full of antiques inside. It is a very casual place and there is usually a wait to get in. We... More

busy busy place always. finding parking can be challenging. Everyone raves about this place. Food is good. A lot of it is fried so if you are a health nut might not be the place for you. Big portions as well. priced really good also. Lots of old items used to decorate the place. Casual environment .

We ordered onion rings and small is plenty for three! They were very good. We all ordered catfish and again small was plenty and came with three sides. The catfish... More
