Reserved a table for 4 for my wife's birthday lunch. Our relatives, who have never been to Camp Verde, were amazed and plan to come back and bring their family members. On line reservation was very easy to initiate and late modify and our table was just where we wanted it, near a window.

The ladies enjoyed the gift store and purchased gifts.

We try to come to Camp Verde often, but being in Spring Branch we do not get there as often as we would like.

Once again, an excellent luncheon experience at Camp Verde Restaurant! An old friend drove up from San Antonio for lunch and was suitably impressed. The iced tea, coffee, onion rings with chipotle sauce, chopped steak with mushroom sauce, chicken tenders, sides, and coconut cream pie were all delicious. Our waitress Patty was excellent as always. Looking forward to next time!

This is always a good place for lunch. Yesterday our monthly luncheon group had a very pleasant and tasty meal at Camp Verde. Several guests had not been here before and considered it quite a find. The onion rings were an excellent starter, and all of the main entrees were delicious, including the chicken tenders plate, cheeseburger, chopped steak and Ruben sandwich. Our waitress Patty was attentive and friendly. Highly recommended.

We love the whole scene at Camp Verde. The general store is a terrific and tasteful with a lovely kitchen shop. The restaurant is always a special treat and we take great pride in taking our visitors for lunch there. We are hoping they are able to expand their hours and start serving dinners also. 4 stars, reaching for 5!

We've dined at Camp Verde Restaurant several times and always found the food to be tasty and fresh. The dining room is relatively small, so reservations are recommended. We like the quiet, open atmosphere of the dining room. Lots of windows so you have natural light and a great view of the property. Serving sizes are hearty and food quality is excellent. Save room for dessert, even if only their locally made ice cream.

This is always a good place to go for lunch. They are very busy, and because of this the waitresses can be a bit "over-efficient", giving the impression that they want to get you in and out as soon as possible. It can make you feel like your experience has been "rushed". Aside from this, all good.

Family members were visiting from Oklahoma so we decided to bring them here as we toured some of the scenic drives of the hill country. The river, the food, the service, the store are all outstanding and easily impress visitors from anywhere. The history makes it unique and interesting. We have been here several times and several even recognized us this trip.

Camp Verde Restaurant is truly a local GEM!! Friendly and Knowledgeable
Servers! Hard to make a decision on your food because the restaurant has
quite a wide variety of plates to offer. The perfect place for a gathering of
friends, or birthday celebrations. Finish the visit as you meander on to the
beautiful store, where you can find just about the most unique of gifts!!

I ordered the chicken salad served on a lettuce salad. I expected a chicken salad with flavorable chunks of chicken, fresh fruit-grapes, apple, or similar, maybe celery, pickles etc and a slightly sweet dressing but instead I was served a minced mush of stuff on limp greens that was bland and unappealing.
For dessert we ordered the peach cobbler. Since we were so close to Hill country peaches, I hoped for fresh, ripe peaches- or at least good frozen ones- and a great cobbler. The peaches were green, hard, undercooked and the sauce tasted scorched. I was so disappointed in the meal!
Our waiter was very good and the staff in your restaurant and gift shop were very nice. I loved all the things available in the gift shop.

The only thing I was disappointed in was the chicken salad. I do not like relish in my chicken salad. I do so for tuna but prefer a sweeter recipe for the chicken salad. The relish made it tangy. Great onion rings!

I had a reservation for 11:15. We got there at 10:50. People who were walking in were being seated. At 11:05, I asked if we could be seated early because no one can use a reserved table for 15 minutes. I was given an excuse so we waited. There were lots of people waiting, it was getting crowded in the hallway. I asked again around 11:10 and got a bit of an “fine” and were seated. Not sure why such a stickler for 5-10 minutes. The earlier we sit and eat, the quicker that table is turned over. My mom and I are gluten free so we ordered the club sandwich, gluten free bread, no mustard, no tomatoes, mayo on side. Our waiter didn’t write it down and joked “hope I can remember it”. I was less than amused. Just write it down. When our food arrived, our waiter told us both that “the cook took out the middle piece of bread to make it easier for us”. We were both confused. What would that even mean?! We ordered a club sandwich but without 3 pieces of bread it’s just a regular sandwich and not as filling and not what we ordered. Also I got tomatoes, my mom didn’t get bacon. We didn’t want to make a fuss so we ate as is. As I was taking some of my last bites, I told my mom “I don’t think this is gluten free bread.” It wasn’t. We both got very sick. I really wish it was written down. It’s not ok to not take that seriously if someone asks for it. We are both gluten intolerant and cannot have it. We loved coming there to eat but probably won’t go back.

Onion rings are the best! Especially with a side of Ranch dressing. The Texas Burger was very good. Meat tender and tasty and not too salty. Noise level was reduced from my last visit, which made the whole experience much more satisfying.

This is one of many times we have been for lunch at Camp Verde. The food is always good and the drive is a pretty one. The wait staff is always pleasant and smiling. You feel as though they are glad you are there which makes us feel special. The surrounding are very nice and well kept. There isn’t anything you would want to change, even if you could.

This is a hidden gem between Kerrville and Bandera. Since this was our first visit, we tried to taste as many items as we could. The onion rings were superb and I honestly have to say the meatloaf was a notch above my wife's recipe. Save room for dessert as the coconut cream pie was scrumptious.
