Part of what made this meal so enjoyable was the fantastic setting. We were there on the perfect fall day and Palmer's patio setting was the perfect environment to showcase their food. We started with the Queso Fundido and it was very good. I would have said excellent, however, the temperature should have been just a bit higher. Next up... More

We were on the way to the outlets on Sunday and wanted to get brunch. We googled this place and decided to try it out. What a great suprise. We sat outside where they had live music playing and started with a make your own bloody Mary bar. Then we got the fondue which again was very tasty and we... More

We live in San Marcos so go to Palmer's a lot. They have a nice selection of entrees and appetizers on the menu, but the challenge always seems to be consistency of the food/entrees, hence the title. Love the courtyard and the happy hour...always start off with the discounted Texas draft beers. Margaritas are lovely too, made with lots of... More

The owners of the B&B where we were staying recommended Palmer's. We were told it was good but I'd change that to great. Our server, Allison, was helpful, knowledgeable and very fun too! Next time we go to the Formula 1 races we will be back!

There was a little wait for the food but as we were not in a hurry it was fine. The food was VERY good. The flavoring was really great and the... More

Liked the atmosphere, especially the outdoor dining. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. Food was good. They could work on increasing the variety of items they offer.

The perfect happy hour or post-performance location for Texas State University events. Great appetizers and drink prices. :)

I met a friend for lunch here last week. I order the Pecan Crusted Chicken with mashed red potatoes and a salad. The food was good and the service prompt. The only thing missing was a hot roll, but I didn't need that anyway.
