Great Place for lunch time with lots of pass Texas History. It's like waking into a museum with lots of Texas Memorabilia. Really Neat Place.

The location of this place is not ideal. Very neat place with a lot of Texas History. The food it self is over priced for what you get. The flavor of the steaks were awesome! They over cooked steaks, which is a HUGE no no!...More

I had the roasted chicken dish. Very bland. Forgot asparagus and had to ask for it. Husband had crab cake and enjoyed it. Gumbo was ok. Ambiance is terrific. Service was ok but not great. Waiter was rushed and was forgetful. Others enjoyed their steak.
