This is a nice local fare. The menu had plenty to choose from and the food was good. Portion size was also very good. The atmosphere made it a fun place to dine and service was very good.

I typically don't like fish but just about anytime I get a chance to go to Clear Springs Cafe I will order the fried catfish. They have many other items that will bring you back time after time. Worth the little extra drive.

People rave about their onion rings but it's just onion rings. Nothing worth writing about. Their fried fish is really good, really fresh and always cooked right. Sweet tea is served in large cups with plenty of free refills. Their tartar sauce is spot on. Dab a little cajun hot sauce on your fish and get ready for a treat.

If you enjoy really clean and tasty seafood but can't go to the beach for it....come here. Big portions made fresh. My favorite is the fried shrimp. More shrimp than batter...and you have to try the onion rings. Awesome place!!

At first sight, this restaurant looks like an old, abandoned barn from the outside. But the food is delicious. I had the small shrimp dinner and it came with 8 large, great tasting shrimp. If those were a small dinner, the large portion would probably feed 2 people. We also ordered an coconut cream pie and it was the best... More

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
