When you need that "goto place", this restaurant is it. We have been lucky enough times to dine there and not a problem, not a flaw and the meals have been perfect each and every time. Its no wonder that its crowded most of the...time. An excellent indication that something good is there. We dined a little later this time so to avoid the rush. Orders were taken and our waiter, Chris M., was Johny on the spot getting our ticket, verifying our order and going the extra mile to get us a ice bucket for the wine. For a easy reasonable meal I had the "Baker Spud" loaded and cooked perfect. Aslo the blackened catfish came AGAIN perfectly cooked and ready. Hands off to the staff and our great waiter. You know we'll be back again and again.More

The Branch is a “must-do” on our trip planning. We have been here several times on this extended weekend trip. The burgers are a family favorite, particularly The Ranger. They have a wide range of adult beverages, including a tasty hard cider. and beers from...local breweries.More

We ate on deck and it was the side connected to playground It was roundly and loud on that side. Weather was nice enough to sit outside. Mom’s catfish was great. Dad was not pleased with his meal. First try and we will be back.

We’ve eaten at the Branch with my family a few times when we are in town, but tonight’s experience ruined us for ever visiting in the future. The people behind us were yelling the “f” word in an establishment that has a playground in the...back.. We asked them kindly to stop, but instead of refraining from using cuss language they started making appalling comments to our family (saying we shouldn’t bring our two year old out in public or that he’s going to hear it at some point.) There is always going to be hostile people, but the way the manger handled it left a bad taste in our mouth. He said he wasn’t trained to handle situations like this.. disagreements between customers? He also started by talking to the people yelling the “f” word, “I apologize...” I’m sorry, but you’re apologizing to the people causing drama in your restaurant? Again, great food, but if you have young children who aren’t accustomed to hearing such profanities and hostilities toward their parents then I suggest going somewhere else.More

This is a fabulous location and a great place for dinner. We stop by there and ended up taking more home than eating there because we over ordered. I just had to try many other different options wish I could get back there to finish...my food wish list. You literally can find something for everyone here.More

Very generous portions of fresh food. We had a salad and the full serving of baby back ribs... and we came home with several ribs untouched (we weren't going to leave them behind). You order as you come in and bring your order card to...the table you select and give it to your server. There's a roll of paper towels on the table, which you will need if you order the yummy ribs!More

Met some friends here lunch as we had never been before but noticed the parking lot is always busy. Service was outstanding, food was great and we are looking forward to coming back and trying something different. Also in the fall we can enjoy sitting...on the patio when it's not hot and humid!More

This restaurant is conveniently located in Faithville right on Hwy. 46 between 281 and New Braunfels. We stopped in for lunch to enjoy a birthday offer and it was busy for the middle of the week. The front parking was full and the back parking...was almost full but for a couple of spaces. We entered through the back had to walk through to the front rather than walk around the outside. Both indoor and outdoor dining was open seating. The playground area was open as well. There is a varied menu posted on wall and order at counter and food brought to table by waitress. We were waited on promptly and served our own tea. They also have beer, wine and margaritas. Since it was a nice day, we sat on the back open deck at a picnic table. We were acknowledged fairly quickly to recheck our order. Kendal, our waitress, was very polite but did not check back during meal but she was quick with getting our ticket. We ordered Grilled Chicken over Rice $10.95 which was grilled perfect with a Spanish style rice and perfectly steamed broccoli and carrots. The other ordered a Branch Chop Salad ($9.95) and it was very large and had mixed greens with tomatoes, egg, avocado, red onion, apple-wood smoke bacon, cheddar and jack cheese. It was served with balsamic vinaigrette. This was really good as well. The day was perfect with a breeze and clouds to sit out on the back deck and the meals were great. Guests were not required to wear masks. There was sanitizer available also.More

Went by for dinner with my grandson this afternoon. Even though arriving early there was a line but don't we put off, it moves fast. You enter and file by the front counter where you place your order. Menu is on the wall and has...the standard southern fried food fair. I ordered the small catfish and my grandson ordered the small catfish and shrimp combo. You are given a ticket and self serve your drink and move to the dining room entry and are met by a host/hostess to seat you. They have indoor and outdoor seating and a playground to entertain the kids. After you sit the wait staff come by and collect your ticket and in short order they return with your food. Our server, Morgan, was very friendly and attentive. Even though very busy she checked back and even offered a to-go cup for our drink. Now for the food. The catfish was very tasty with a light breading. It was very flavorful and well seasoned. My grandson said the shrimp was good, about as strong a statement as you get from a teen boy. The fries were good but they were the shoestring type and I am not a fan. Just personal preference and nothing to do with the quality of the fries. The small catfish had 4 nice size filets and the catfish/shrimp had 2 filets and 4 shrimp with ample size serving of fries. They have a large size but we both found the small filling. I look forward to trying some of their other offerings in the future. When done Morgan returned with our ticket and we paid at the table. Vcost for 2 with drinks and tip was $31.More

We were delighted to sit out on the deck overlooking the children's playground. The food was good especially the sweet potato fries. Although it was very busy, our server was attentive and the food was brought timely. One orders at the counter but actually pays...the server at which point it is easy to ensure that the tip goes to the server.More

Had a great dinner. Had the chicken fried steak. I signed up for the VIP club because it was birthday only to find out that you have to get a coupon via email to qualify. The ad is misleading when it states get a free...appetizer for signing up. Waitress would not honor that.More

Late lunch on Saturday. There was no line. Pulled a Michelob Ultra from the ice. The cashier told us that they had it on tap so we chose that instead. Ordered fried catfish on one plate and shrimp and catfish on the other. The catfish...was very good. Wish the fish was a bit thicker. The mixed vegetables, brocalli and carrots were fresh and good. The sweet potato wedges were good but not many of them. It was $1,50 substitution charge. I did not expect skimpy portions. The salad was good. For a slack time, it took a long time for our waiter to appear. He was friendly. The food took quite a while to arrive. The girl divering the food just pushed the plates across the table. I guess she never heard of serving from the right. Our waiter did check back to see.if we needed anything. I requested lemons. I had to remind him 4 times before they finally arrived. When I paid the tab the waiter asked if I wanted tea to go. I said yes and he said he would be right back with it. After 10 long minutes we gave up and left.More

Decided on the Branch Grill because of convenience and good consistent food. The catfish and shrimp combo is one of our favorites. Hamburgers and salads are also a popular choice. Masks are required with seating spreadout. They serve beer, sodas and tea.
