Didn’t know that Sunday brunch was served all day but entrees available after verifying with kitchen. Both selections were available and service was great! We will be going back with entire family on tow for brunch this time!

Don't miss the flash fried spinach. I had it as an accompaniment to my salmon and both were delicious. Our party of four ordered the tomato bruschetta to start and it was a very generous serving. I am sure will dine there again when we are in the area.

The food, atmosphere, help, everything was wonderful. Great room to have a private party is also part of this great place. Perfect location in between Gruene and New Braunfels. Highly recommend!

I love this restaurant! I actually discovered it several years ago when my son and his family lived a couple of blocks away. Now I come with friends and neighbors. It was my husbands birthday and our anniversary and this was the perfect place to come! He had never been and loved the ambiance, the food and staff was so attentive!!

Main dining room was so loud we had to leave. Will try again, but sit in bar area.

This was the best meal we have had in a long time. Salmon dish with flash fried spinach and shrimp and grits were both great! Waiter was also fabulous - wish I knew his name!

I had the pork chop, it came with garlic mash potatoes and 3 asparagus spears for $26. So the garlic mash was good but not special and only 3 asparagus spears, Ok not a deal breaker. But my chop, though it had a nice flavor, was tough and very chewy. I had 3 small bites from ine cut. It was actually hard to cut with the correct knife. They were ready to correct this by making me another one but by the time it was brought out, the rest of my party's plates were removed and we were on to birthday dessert. Of course I'm not goung to eat my chop while they watch so I had them prep it to go. Now I told them not to bring me a whole new plate since I had eaten my 3 spears and 4 bites of garlic mash but because it took sooo long to get my new pork chop, the waiter had removed my unfinished plate which I didn't catch since we were in deep conversation. So I basically paid $26. for 4 bites of garlic mash and 3 spears! To top it off, knowing that my experience was not up to par, which tells me a lot about this resturant, they didn't even offer to discount my plate. Here's the thing mr. restaurant, most people will return to a place if the food is decent and experience is great but most people won't return to a resturant if food is really good but their experience is less than. It would have gone a long way if they would have even taken 30% off but that wasn't the case. I would not recommend or return!
