Awful service - waited 1 hour for food to be served/ manager wouldn't/ wasn't no help. Food was great - drove for over a hour from home for a big disappointment.

Onion rings were very good. Chicken and shrimp gumbo didn't have but one little bitty piece of shrimp. Porkchop and baked potato we're good. Shrimp wonton appetizer I had is the meal was also good.

I only out 3 stars because I can't have gluten and I do not eat sea food. There is not much of a selection for me. However, my coworkers seem to enjoy it.

Lots of seafood options done southern style. Also, plenty of options for those that don't eat seafood (chicken fried steak, burgers, etc.). Get the onion rings to start and bring plenty of folks to share them.

Best fried catfish plates in Midland. And if you enjoy the oversized crispy onion rings, order some as a starter. They are very good. Then enjoy the eclecticism of the decor from old country stores, gas stations and hunting and fishing trophies from all over.

Wife and I had dinner at the Clear Springs Cafe. Decor was nice with a hunting lodge feeling about it. The fried shrimp was large and tasty. Will go there again.

This location was the first built from the ground up. It's fashioned after our original location in New Braunfels, with its massive wood support beams, high ceilings and rustic atmosphere, it is like stepping back in time to the 1800's.
