“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

This past weekend was our first time ever to eat here, we went for RIverfest and decided to give this place a try. One of the best chicken fried steaks we've had in a long time. Everything was good and very tasty. Next time were in Bandera we will be eating here again!

“Girls Day Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

Thiis was the choice of this month's Lunch Bunch Hostess. Hidden away in downtown Bandera is Brick's River Cafe. It has the best home style cooking I have had in a long time. All the ladies enjoyed their lunches which ranged from butterflied shrimp, catfish, pasta, ground steak and liver and onions. The waitress did a great job and had a smile on her face. This is a place worth going back to.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

We recently escorted a group of 45 senior citizens on a tour of the Texas Hill Country. It’s often hard to find a nice restaurant in small towns that can service this size group in a timely manner. But, in Bandera, Texas we found just the right place at Brick’s River Café.

This attractive restaurant sits on the banks of the Medina River and was very comfortable. We pre-ordered our meals and they were fresh and ready when we arrived. There was a wide variety of very good food at a really reasonable prices. All of our 45 travelers were happy with their meals…..that’s hard to do! The staff was very professional, they served quickly and made sure everyone had everything they needed.

We ceretainly recommend this restaurant for everyone.

“Onion Rings need I say more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

Went there for a change of pace in Bandera. The service was impeccable, the chicken fried steak not so much. It was not flavorful and tough. But OMG, I would back just to make a meal out of their onion rings. They are the best I have ever had and that says alot. Large portion size and my kids that don't like onions gobbled them up!
