I am usually not a seafood person, but in this case I'll make an exception. We enjoying eating on the patio on a nice day and the food is always good. The building itself is sure worth a visit since it is the old post...More

I know everyone loves mcadoos which is why we have tried it several times. It's just too salty for us, everytime. The atmosphere is great but that alone won't make us come back again.

Great service, food and wine. Food is pricey, but the potions are large and worth every penny. I would recommend any of the food and the wine selection was amazing. I did not care for the sangria, but my daughter did.

What a nice surprise. My cousin and I were in town for a wedding and decided to stop by this gem based on the reviews from Yelp and Zomato. The reviews were quite accurate. My cousin enjoyed the Bloody Mary bar. What a unique invention!...More

Great restaurant, excellent food and service, been there many times. Ambiance is comfortable, it is in THE first federally funded post office built in the US and is in downtown New Braunfels. Highly recommended. Key lime pie is especially delicious too.

Good, Texas-style sea food. There's also burgers and steaks, great bread and salads. But my favorite is the fried okra, cut lengthwise. The building is our old New Braunfels post office, beautifully remodeled. Take a look at the woodwork, the old doors in the walls,...More

Really worth the trip from San Antonio. Had the Red Fish Pontchartrain that was as good as anything I have had in New Orleans. Service was a little slow but it was as busy as I have ever seen. Probably good idea to call for...More

Look at their posted menu. I didn’t order gluten free so I’m not much help on that one. The waitress did tell me they had it.
