We were lucky enough to get a table by a window that overlooked the river. It was a great preview of what we would experience during our stay in the Hill Country. We had a couple of good Catfish type dinners, and the Gumbo on the side was also good. The menu is pretty extensive so each time we returned,... More

The meal was OK. Nothing great. Had a late dinner and had a 45+ min wait. The front greeter wasn't very friendly and appeared more irritated than friendly when asked about the wait time.

Not sure why this restaurant is rated as highly as it is. The decor is nice (like a mountain lodge), but that is about where the good stops. Our server was fine but was too busy to be attentive. Our appetizer came out after our salads and entrees. I was about to cancel the appetizer when it finally appeared. Thought... More

On Monday evening, we enjoyed our meal out on the balcony overlooking the river. While it was a hot night, there was a wonderful breeze that provided very enjoyable seating. Service was very prompt and friendly. We had the Tortilla crusted catfish and fish tacos. Both were good, portions were generous and prices were reasonable.

While sitting at the bar, we noticed the wine glasses hanging in the rack, were not clean... pointed out to person at the bar... finally pointed them out to manager - she took action. Thank goodness or we would not be going back!

We try to come every couple of months for the fish. It takes about an hour to get here so coming is a treat for the family. This time we left with mixed emotions. We arrived after 1:00pm and had to wait about twenty minutes to be seated. This can be overlooked because it was the end of spring break... More

We ate at this restaurant because it was very close to our hotel. One of us was very disappointed with the quality of the food and the other was very disappointed with the quantity of the serving for the price we paid. Not a good choice for us.

I love local restaurants and the menu and reviews of this one promised a great experience with a great view. Seriously disappointing. After listening to the hostess rudely interact with the grumpy older gentleman who came in right before us, she got our request for outdoor seating wrong and then "lost" us resulting in a 1 hour 15 minute wait....
