We visited this place on our way back home from vacation. The building is huge and you can tell it holds a lot of local stories and history. We visited after the local lunch hour so it was not crowded. I can imagine it must hold a big Friday and Saturday night party crowd. Our wait staff got us seated qucikly and drink order placed & served quickly. Then you need to "set for a spell". I ordered a shrimp bisque which took about 15 minutes to come to the table and the cup was just half full and was more of a stew. For what I did get, it was very delicious and had whole shrimp for every bite. Entrees came about 20 minutes later. All of our entrees were Southern comfort favorites and were fresh made. I am from Houston where smoke is banned from all public places so the multiple smokers in the place were a downside. I would come back to this place next year when passing through but I hope TX legislature passes a no-smoking bill in public places in 2015. (Please) I have to reccommend that families with young children not come here because of the cigarette smoke atmosphere.
