Best chicken fried steak I have had in a long time. Great service, good prices and beautiful views of the Guadalupe River. My husband was glad they had a sugar free dessert since he is diabetic.

We were very pleased with our dinner. The food and service were both good and the prices were reasonable. It was very pleasant looking out on the river. I would go back in a minute.
