We stopped for lunch with a 15,12, and 9 year old. All the good was fast and hot. Waitress was friendly and helpful. We had a variety of items. My husband loved the grinder - which has kick to it! My son got the Italian sandwich which was huge! My daughter loved that you could customize the spaghetti with two sauces. I had an Italian chicken dish which came in a baked bowl with thick cheese, mushrooms, and a delicious tomato sauce. The issue was the chicken in it was like eating strips of rubber. It tasted and felt like pre-formed, pre cooked, chicken pieces that were so overdone I could barely bite into them. Out of the entire dish I could o lay eat 3 strips, the rest were inedible... Everything else was great!

Found this gem, while driving through Clear Lake, what a beautiful place to set and relax, or walk through the pathways, taking in all the different and beautiful specimen of flowers, Absolutely breath taking. Great place for photos.

We were surprised a couple years ago to find this garden area right outside Clear Lake's town area. It is so beautiful, with several walkways through various gardens and each is so pretty. I think it's run by volunteers and they do a terrific job. They also have the plant and flower names marked which is really helpful. No doubt they have many wedding pictures taken here and ceremonies as well. There's a little house where they give classes and this year we noticed they built a be a beautiful building for parties and such. It sits high up so inside you can enjoy the flowers as well. Just a joy to stroll through, if in the area do stop you won't be disappointed.

A lovely garden on the site of the former Clear Lake High School and Central Elementary. When we went, it was meticulously maintained and beautiful.

This is a lovely garden near downtown Clear Lake. It is a project of love by dozens of community volunteers. It adds much to the charm and culture of an already vibrant and fun small city. Hundreds of volunteer hours of planting and maintaining the space each season.
