...it would definitely be better than this one! But, here on earth it's arguably unlikely you'll find a tastier place to eat, at these prices, and with this view! I cant come up with one flaw regarding this establishment.
PS: if your waiter is cool, ask to have the schnitzel(Sp?) with both the jaeger AND jalapeño gravies on the side. The fried green tomatoes are far from run of the mill, and so much better; a perfect serving too.

I found this restaurant while on vacation in the New Braunfels area. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by a friendly hostess who sat us quickly. The restaurant is very clean and I love the open design. It is located on the river with great views. The food tasted great on the buffet. Our waitress was great...very friendly and attentive to our needs. My 11 year old daughter, who is hard to please, loves this place! Would recommend this restaurant to others.

I've been to the New Braunfels location twice now, once for lunch and once for breakfast, both awesome meals! Ordered the buffet for lunch. Everything was delicious and they kept it fresh. For breakfast I had pancakes and they were the best pancakes I've ever had. That means alot coming from a picky pregnant woman. The value for the food is great. 6.95 For the breakfast buffet and 8.95 for the lunch. Service has always been awesome. The staff always goes above and beyond to ensure your upmost satisfaction. The people are so friendly and helpful. Would recommend this place to everyone! Its great!

Our food looked like it was sat on, the burger was literally 1" thick with the bun. The fries are disgusting being double fried and breaded. The most disgusting part is the 2 giant blocks of cheese on the buffet that everyone touches with their bare hands while cutting off a piece. Will never go back or recommend...
