This destination has everything: Native plant nursery, gift shop, bakery, restaurant and a place to just meet friends for a glass of wine. We've been to the Ridge several times but never for lunch. We started with some excellent onion rings that were lightly battered and very crisp. We were able to heat the leftovers up at home and retain... More

Waitstaff is friendly. It is several miles outside of Kerrville, but it is a scenic drive. We have not been disappointed with breakfast, but found dinner not to be ad enticing. The place had a very countrified ambiance. Visit the bakery and garden store while you are there.

We came with a group (12) and sat in one of the back rooms. It was quite a bit before our order was taken, but the food came in a reasonable amount of time. The food was excellent and we found the whole experience to be one of the best places that we have eaten in the area. There was... More

One of the wait staff met and greeted us at the door. My husband and I were with my mom-in-law who was walking slowly with a cane. They seated us at the first table available, so she didn't have to walk far. I ordered the Smothered Chicken with spinach and fried sweet potatoes. The chicken was seasoned and baked with... More

Meat restaurant with a garden shop next door. Had the blue cheese burger with a side of the best onion rings. For dessert a chocolate truffle bottom chocolate pie. Most yummy. The salads looked very good also. The little bakery was not open whenever we were there but it is apparently very good. The nursery next door is great to... More

We came to check out the plants and have lunch on a Saturday drive from Fredericksburg. Since we bought lunch we got a 10% discount on one item from the garden area. The outside area is beautiful and worth a visit. I had the grilled tilapia with fried green tomatoes and fried okra. Loved it. My wife loved the ranger... More

I highly recommend the smothered chicken with mushrooms and the vegetables but the new menu also offers several new sandwiches that are good.

Hubby and I both had yummy Chicken Fried Steaks. I had the Sautéed Spinach that was awesome as always. We shared the "Better than Sex" for dessert ... super rich chocolate and delicious!! Service was good and the live music made for great entertainment. Another good evening At the Ridge ... only wished the Gardens would have been open.
