Stopped for lunch with a group of 7 folks. Service was fast and courteous. I ordered the "sampler". It came on two large plates. No way you can eat it all at one sitting. Food preparation was way beyond excellent. By the way, the decorations and atmosphere is perfect.

There are other restaurants in Bandera, but this holds its own for character, charm and plain old good food. It's a feast for the eyes, decor wise, with lots of western touches including a line of saddles used for seats at the bar. You'll find it clean, staff friendly, service good and prices affordable. Good place to watch the locals.... More

Went here with the family after seeing many glowing reviews on tripadvisor for breakfast. I found this place to be satisfactory but not amazing. There wasn't anything negative to say, just nothing that sets it apart. Not a lot of options in the little town of Bandera and this place was worth checking out. Grab breakfast and then walk a...

My husband and I ate here on the recommendation of the staff at the campground we were staying at in Medina. Bandera is our kind of town, and OST fit right in to the small town feel. We had to order take out as we were traveling with two dogs and it was too hot to leave them in the... More

We tried it because it was #1 on here! Loud, salad bar nothing special. Service was ok. Catfish was not good and chicken fried chicken was good but gravy was awful! Wish I had read Yelp!

The people at ost are great! The portions are really large! The chopped steak is something you have to try. The chicken fried steak could have been better, but that might be personal.

What interesting décor! We loved eating here. Lots of cowboys come in to eat and you can tell they are regulars. They come in, get their coffee cup and find a table!

Breakfast is good , service is poor most of the time. Had to get my own coffee , wouldn't be that bad if I wasn't disabled. My waitress had a bad attitude, like she didn't want to be here. Just typical cafe food, fried everything.

The food was probably store purchased, seemed like it had been sitting in storage. The tortillas were definitely from HEB or somewhere like it, and seemed old. Took forever to get service, got drinks and never got them refilled. Everything was mediocre at best, and with the prices they charged it was terrible.

Food was plentiful. Restaurant was busy over Labor Day weekend. Clean and wait staff very pleasant. Spent around $35 for three people and we left with very full bellies.
