Description: Reopened under new owners late in Nov. 2010 . Trip advisor has it listed as a hotel, but currently it is not. Here is our review : Psstt. Here's a tip for gourmands, wine lovers, beer aficionados: The Badu House (under new ownership) has excellent fun, food, wine, beer, that goes well with the mysterious history and fabulous atmosphere! On our first try of The Badu House last night we were impressed with the variety of beers and wines, and the... tasty light menu prepared by a chef in training who has created some great tasting items sure to tempt your palate! The Badu House staff has done an outstanding job creating a new, special experience for Hill Country visitors and locals alike!

“Unique place”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

This place has been around for a loooong time with many different owners with poor to terrible results. The present owners seem to have got it right. It's a popular place for locals. Nice beer selection, tap and bottles. It's got a nice friendly atmosphere and owners are nice folks. Good live music. The food is average pup food, some unique items, but pricey and just not as tasty as U'd expect . The sweet potato fries are excellent. Overall a nice place just don't expect to get a great dining experience

“Can't wait to visit again”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Our very first visit to The Badu House was last month for dinner. Food and service was very good. Comfortable atmosphere, excellent service, beautiful place inside and out. Just returned home from a three night stay at the B&B. My husband and I and our two little kids stayed in a two room suite upstairs from the restaurant. We ate dinner there our first night, sat outside listening to live music, incredibly relaxing. We had special request for our breakfast to be served early and they were happy to accommodate. Simple breakfast choices you make selections before retiring for the night. When we walked downstairs each the morning our plates were served promptly. Amazing selection of wines and beers! The owner spent time with me asking what my wine tastes were and gave samples. Truly personal service! We will be back to stay next year. Hopefully sooner!

“Best cheesecake...ever!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Visited Badu House for dinner while we had a short visit in Llano, Tx. The atmosphere was very cozy and there was a great decor. We tried the Jalapeno poppers stuffed with blackberries, honey, and cream cheese wrapped in bacon which was a nice twist on the norm of that type of appetizer. Chorizo Mac-n-Cheese, but by far, THE best part of the meal was the sopapilla cheesecake. Served warm it was AMAZING and a great end to our meal!
