The restaurant at Camp Verde never disappoints. The sandwiches are quite filling. The potato soup was served hot with a side serving of bread. We shared the chocolate sundae. There will be food to take home.

Drove in for lunch today from San Antonio and were pleased as usual with our lunch, split the Jolly Reuben Sandwich and shared the Apple Basket (pictured) for dessert. Both were excellent and our server Patty did a GREAT job keeping our tea glasses filled and making sure we were good! Afterwards we browsed through the shop and enjoyed the grounds and nearby creek. Will continue our visits to Camp Verde!

My friend wanted a really good Reuben Sandwich so we headed to Camp Verde Restaurant on Sunday. She enjoyed her sandwich so much, and everything I had was delicious, as well, including the Coconut Custard Pie we shared. Don't ever take this item off the menu! To make things perfect, Maria provided excellent service. She is friendly, professional, competent and a beautiful person.... a real asset to the restaurant. In addition, shopping in the General Store is a real pleasure, especially the kitchen section. Overall, this is a exceptional place in the Hill Country, and we are grateful to the owners who have made it available.

We showed up 15 minutes prior to our reservation time and checked in. We weren’t seated until 45 minutes AFTER our reservation time! The food was good and our server was friendly and attentive. However, shortly after finishing our dessert, we were told we had to leave because they wanted our table for another party. We were shocked and quickly left. We were at the table less tha 25 minutes and there were several empty tables when we were shuffled out. We were hosting out of town guests and apologized to them for taking them to such a inhospitable restaurant. There was no apology from the staff for the late seating or for bums rush to get rid of us. We will not be returning!

We would have given this 5 stars every time except this time my huge delicious salad came with not over 2 teaspoons of dressing as the tiny dressing dish wasn't half full. When I asked for more I was told I would have to pay for additional dressing. This ruined things for me...go up on the price of the salad, but either bring enough dressing or make sure the little dressing dish is filled more than it was. I will go back and it still remains one of our favorite lunch places.

On occasion we will drive the short distance from home just for something different. Always great food, extremely consistent and always a friendly staff. I would try to always make a reservation on Open Table or your wait might be 45 minutes on the weekend.

Camp Verde is not the typical hill country restaurant that uses the same prepackaged, frozen products you usually find. Someone in the kitchen is creative and understands what a good lunch can really be. We enjoy it on every visit.

I was shocked that they now charge you for a to-go cup if you want to take your soft drink with you when you leave. That never used to be, but other than that, I enjoyed it as I always do.

A regular spot for us. Decided at the last minute to go and made the Open Table reservation. As always a great experience. Note: Camp Verde is in one of the few "dry" areas of the Texas hill country. No alcohol served of any kind. Good brewed iced tea though.

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.
