“Still working out the kinks but nice view, good food, decent service”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

We went on a Saturday afternoon about 3 & were seated immediately. We had heard reports that during the normal lunch/dinner times that this place was packed. Pretty cool layout but as beautiful as the patio was it was just too darn hot to eat out there. The renovation of the old power plant is kinda neat & the floor to HIGH ceiling window areas are great. We ordered the chip appetizer and it came with salsa & guacamole. very good. I had the chicken fried steak & that also warranted a thumbs up. The teenagers had the fried fish and gave it a thumbs up. The side salads were awesome and choice of dressings more than adequate. We did give a thumbs down to the mac and cheese. As I mentioned we were seated immediately --and our waitress was appropriately attentive. I guess the one thing you could say I didn't care for was the "attire" of the wait staff & the hostess. For what could be a little more classy than the run of the mill restaurant, especially given the scenary, I just would prefer my waitress to be a little more appropriately dressed. Tank top & shorts just seemed out of place. We'll definitely be going back. If you find this review helpful, please check yes!

“Worth a come Back”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

We took a chance and went on a Friday evening it was crowded. The main dinning room is small so we opted for the patio. As expected in South Texas it was hot, but the ceiling fans brought the temperature to a bearing level. A Band was playing on the patio offered a variety of music from Rock to country. We ordered the Turkey Wrap and the Grilled chicken breast. Both dishes were very good and plenty. Our waitress was very attentive even though it was very busy, our food came out promptly . Friends recommended other dishes as the Onion rings and Mushroom appetizer. They was a full bar on the patio and also one for the main dinning room. We want to go back and try other dishes.

“Great Idea, Nice Patio...Service and Food were Poor”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

First I want to say that I really wanted this place to be good. Seguin needed a scenic river restaurant. The renovation of the old power plant is cool and they have a beautiful patio seating area. Unfortunately the place is disorganized in the way service is delivered and the food is not very good. It took us like 20 minutes to get water and see a waitress. My salad with chicken was edible, but the chicken was like 1/2 inch cubes that were more like what you make chicken salad with. The waitress would have forgotten my salad dressing if I hadn't said something. Shrimp nachos were just gross looking. Shrimp were small and looked boiled and poorly seasoned. Tortilla soup was too thick they forgot avocado. Saw other food that people had and it looked like reheated frozen stuff. I wouldn't go back unless it was just for a beer on the patio. Needs major management change and wait staff that know what they are doing.
