“Christmas time in Llano @ The Badu.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere and the food was better than average. My wife and I came upon a recommendation from the evening's entertainer John Arthur Martinez and we were not disappointed with either the food or the good service.

“Great patio and wine list!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

I ate here with a group of women on a winery road trip. We were told it was the "best restaurant in Llano" and we were not disappointed! Their wine list had a lot of variety, and many good choices. They literally had wine from all over the world! Five of the six ladies in the group ordered the spinach salad, and we all really enjoyed it. We sat in the beautiful patio and really enjoyed the evening. When I am back in the Hill Country again, I will definitely return!

“Excellent Food and Drink in a neat atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This used to be a really high end steak house and was amazing. They've down scaled it a bit to pub fare, but it didnt lose too much in the translation. Friendly staff and a cool historic building that also has B&B room to rent. Live music some nights on the back patio. Only open Thursday onward though

“Good music!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We didn't stay there, but from across the street, we enjoyed listening to the outdoor music coming from their lovely back yard area. The place was packed.

What a great atmosphere! The owner came to our table and talked to us and shared the history of the Bed and Breakfast!
