“Hard to find but worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This place is the essence of the Texas Hill Country. I believe the building used to be the Welfare, TX post office so it's really old. If weather permits, sit outside under the canopy of vines so you can get a good look at the chickens, turkeys, goats, etc. that cruise around the place. After taking in the feel of a turn of the century farm, you'll be truly shocked at the quality of the food. It truly is five star cuisine in a very rustic setting. Call ahead and find out if they're going to have music when you go. They bring in Hill Country musicians a couple of nights per week and most are hard core country but all are worth listening to. A really fun experience and great food!

“Very good venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Good food and friendly staff. Good range of food in the menu to satisfy most tastes. Best if you are "dog friendly" but that is part of the charm of the place. Had a good meal and a good time.

“Perfect”

We really enjoyed everything about this little place. Great food, cute patio, and dogs wandering around add to the charm. We left very happy!

“Good idea, bad execution.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

The place is unique and has a great atmosphere, however, the service took for ever (more than 45 minutes)! The food was just OK, some of the items on the menu were very expensive for what you got. The Potato Cakes are good but very small, and instead of the "apple sauce & sour cream" sauce we just got plain vanilla yogurt, and when we asked we were told it was they way they served it (?).
