Experience was OK - nice atmosphere, really nice service people - food was, in my opinion, pricey for what was served. I don't know if I would return on my own ; perhaps if I wanted to bring out of town guests.

Who knew that behind an unpretentious door we would find this warm ambiance, outstanding service and incredible food. We had the wrapped dates for an appetizer. Perfection in a bite! Wonderful salads. And all of the entrees were beautiful to the eye and just heavenly to the palate. I had the bone in ribeye. Right up there with my all... More

I follow a plant-based diet so small town Texas dining can be pretty limiting. I looked at reviews and saw Cheryl's was well-rated, plus had a portion of its menu specifically for vegetarian/vegan options. I don't recall seeing pricing on the online menu (but I was in the car doing research on the phone while my husband drove and we... More

Staff was friendly, food was very good but it was a very long wait for our food when it was not all that busy. Suggest you don't be in any hurry to eat. Order an appetizer and a drink to pass the time

We were seated and it took 20 minutes for anyone to acknowledge our presence. We left the table to ask for a server and it was another 10 minutes to get the table set and our order taken. The restaurant was only half full. The food was better than average. I recommend the fresh seafood platters. As for value I... More

Cheryl's A Restaurant and Saloon was recommended to us because we asked for good fish. From the outside I didn't expect much. But was I surprised. The decor was different - a combination of old / new / funky / artistic.... a delightful change from the norm. Nothing you would expect in a quiet coastal town. The menu offered a... More

It was crowded when we were there and that is often a good sign. (Not every time though) The decor is wonderful, they have gone all in with everything, but it is very cozy and if you are like me you will love it. The food was good but expensive and maybe even overpriced. But still, go there and just... More

Eclectic and very promising but the price of the meal does not match the quality of food which is more of a fatty dinner food. Food is Over priced for sure.
