The onion rings are some of the best. The chicken fried steak should be shared unless you have a really big appetite. It was really good. The tea come sreally sweet.

Service is great! Shrimp and fried and grilled catfish are good! I eat there at least twice a week. Plenty of seating. Great for large groups or parties. The steaks and grilled pork chops are good too.

Built in an old style tradition with long bar, and nostalgia all throughout. Great onion rings, fried shrimp, fried fish... It's all good!

Great place to get a huge plate of tasty onion rings while waiting on your fried catfish. Great spot for lunch or dinner. Hope they don't run out of catsup!

Large portions, great food and friendly service. Before you leave, you have to try the key lime pie. Best I've ever had!

We decided to give Clear Springs another try after a sub-par visit several months ago. Things have not improved. The service was adequate but the food quality is nowhere near what it used to be. A good indicator is the size of the dinner crowd. There was a time when you would have had to wait for a table at... More

This place is very simple and Texan. Big giant onion rings on a pole. These are so big you could call them a meal. The catfish is what I always get and it will standup to the best. It's in a giant barn building right by the baseball park. Cold beer and beer batteres onion rings, what else do you... More

Stopped for a quick lunch. Greeted with a friendly smile and great table service. I had a beer and some fish tacos which I thoroughly enjoyed. Overall a great experience and on my list to visit again if in the area.

Although I enjoy looking at the vintage photos and western decor, I find nothing to brag about as far as the food at the clear springs cafe, just ok. We've been there 3 times now as seafood options in the area are limited but continue to be rather unimpressed. A little grimey but can sometimes be typical in places where... 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.
