We had reservations and was seated on time. Our server took our drink orders and promptly brought them out. Our meals arrived shortly after we ordered. The food was delicious and the proportions we generous. We were full but just couldn't resist the banana pie a lady behind us had. The banana pie was huge! About the size of a pot pie. Oh, it tasted awesome! The flavor was unforgettable! I will return again. Thanks Camp Verde for a fantastic meal and great shopping.

As I have many times, I highly support this business and its personnel. I do have one small complaint:
I sincerely wish you would put felt feet on the legs of all tables & chairs. It is the one noise factor in that acoustic nightmare of a room that I find most disturbing. After a great meal with great service and a really good overall experience, I hate hearing those chairs grating on that slab floor.

It is a real treat to have lunch at Camp Verde. Once you out of town guests eat there they ask to return on their next visit. The coconut cream pie is outstanding.

What a pleasant and delicious surprise awaited me on Monday. Having heard about Camp Verde General Store for several years, I finally made a visit to the impressive site. I should have made the effort to arrive sooner.....my loss. The restaurant was beautiful with large windows at the end so that the scenery of the hill country could be enjoyed. The waitress was helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. I had a large salad which was served with crackers and certainly felt that I had enough for lunch. My husband tried the meatloaf plate with mashed potatoes and vegetables; he enjoyed the decision he made. Did I mention dark chocolate sorbet? Be sure to try it!
Onward to the General Store, a pure delight in shopping. Do allow time to browse the various departments of this store. Each area is full of interesting items that you might never see at the chain store. From the kitchen area to the stationary to the jewelry, you need time to appreciate all the merchandise available under one roof. The display areas are unique and not overcrowded. Am looking forward to a return visit in the near future.

The food was very good, the service excellent. We were seated right away when we arrived with reservations. I would suggest one thing. Put some sort of glides on the chair legs so they do not make so much noise when people sit down or get up.

Enjoyed another fine meal that featured a 1/2 pound burger made from 100% beef. It was cooked to my specification and was served with my choice of vegetable. Meal was finished off with outstanding peach cobbler. Will go again.

This is a "must have lunch" location when we visit family in the Bandera area. Sandwiches are delicious and desserts are out of this world. We had the peach cobbler and the pecan cobbler -- nothing was left in either bowl!!

This is a really nice place and the food is fantastic. There were four of us. Two got the meatloaf, one the Ruben and one the four-cheese burger. We all commented on how good each choice was. We also go dessert and that put us over the top. Delicious, especially the pecan cobbler.

This place is super clean. The restrooms are about as clean as one can get. Extremely well maintained.

I highly recommend Camp Verde for a delicious lunch.

Cool little place tucked in between Bandera and Kerrville. Lots of history, very scenic, plus you have a great place to have lunch. Its only open 11-3, but the food is good. The menu is small but there are some choices for everyone. You will not be disappointed.

Our waitress Patty was wonderful. She noticed presents being opened and came up and whispered to me if it was someone’s birthday. I said yes and she rushed off. She reappeared with a beautiful plate of ice cream and sprinkles with a candle and “Happy birthday!” written in chocolate. It was so sweet!!

Been here many times. Always pleasant, though menu is relatively unchanged with maybe one daily special. Not many healthy options. Large portions - enough to suffice for 2 meals. Maybe I’ve never asked, but we were disappointed that no wines are available- apparently a county precinct prohibition of >5% alcohol. Beers are available. Fun shopping while waiting, no matter what day, I suggest reservations.
