One of our favorite restaurants! Rustic decor with signs, toys and pictures that will take you back in time. Catfish dinners in three sizes with fries, pinto beans, and cole slaw, yummy gumbo, fried chicken salad and their famous piled high onion rings. They offer something for everyone. Can be busy both at lunch and dinner. Great wait staff.

The portion sizes are ridiculously large. I had the chicken fried chicken and it was enough to share and two people be full. The food was good, and the atmosphere was fun and relaxing. Our waitress was on top of her game. We would return if we're ever in the area again.

Big restaurant which serves big portions. Had their fried catfish plate which is very good if you like fried fish. They have lots of other items on the menu and saw tables having large orders of chicken fried steak, onion rings and other tasty fried items. Fried is their specialty, but you can get baked and grilled items. Go hungry... More

Food and service is great. If you like onion rings these are home made. Everything I have eaten there is yummy.

The food was okay, but nothing special. The salad (and there was lots of it) was good. The broccoli was overcooked. Service was slow. However, the wait persons were pleasant.

The food was great. I had the grilled chicken salad and a cup of gumbo. My Co worker had the fried shrimp and fried crawfish. The atmosphere was nice and the staff friendly.

We were seated very quickly and was asked which type of seating we preferred, we were impressed! But that is where impressions stopped for us. We sat for 15 minutes waiting before finally the girl that had circled our table came over. We were just getting ready to leave. She said oh I'm sorry I didn't see you over here,... More

I understand shift changes and the difficulty with coordinating who has what table, however this is not chemistry. But other than wasting my time I was scarce on I had 3 servers/service assistants ask about our drinks and appetizer. I had no idea who I was tipping. On the other end of the spectrum the food was mediocre at best.... More

This location was the first built from the ground up. It's fashioned after our original location in New Braunfels, with its massive wood support beams, high ceilings and rustic atmosphere, it is like stepping back in time to the 1800's.
