Enjoy this place and it offers quite a variety. Food is usually good there--I'd give it 5 stars, but, the different cooks there makes the dishes inconsistent.

Food was good and prompt in coming. Server did not get my order correct but finished the meal as served. Several very wide and steep stairs to get to the door. Did not see a HC ramp but could have been there.

You have to find it because I thought the GPS was leading us to the hotel but it is right behind it. Cute little building with a few dozen tables. Prices were pretty reasonable for what you get.

Behind the hotel on Highway 16 must try it. Good food at a reasonable price I'd say the best restaurant on Bandera! !

Wow the reviews are all over the place for this establishment. We had a good time here once and so returned again after church one Sunday. They weren’t very busy yet the service was a little slow, but friendly. My catfish fillets were excellent, cooked just right and filled with flavor.
