Bricks River Cafe has a quaint look. It is off the "tourist strip" beside the hotel, sits right on the river and has a very nice ambiance. The service is very prompt and the servers are friendly and these two elements can be a nice set up for a pleasant meal. The food, however, is less than memorable. There really... More

Food was only average, my fish was under cooked. Boys wrap and pasta were just ok according to them. Service was good.

We had a Motor Home Rally in Bandera and had dinner here twice. The food and the prices was excellent. We had the catfish one night and the Chicken fried theaj]\k the other.

Thank you for the "home" cooked meal and friendly staff! Highly recommend! Tricky to find, because it's behind an Inn, but well worth it!

Brick did a catfish and shrimp dinner for our RV group. They served 60 people and everyone had hot, freshly fried seafood. The sides, Cole slaw, mashed potatoes and hush puppies were also excellent.

Food is fresh, delivered hot and very good. Menu is quite diverse. We returned the same route a couple days later, and never a doubt that we would... More

Four of us went here and everyone ordered something different. Everyone was happy with their order. The place was busy since we came on a Sunday after church but our wait was reasonable and our food was good. Will definitely come back.

Enjoy this place and it offers quite a variety. Food is usually good there--I'd give it 5 stars, but, the different cooks there makes the dishes inconsistent.

We come to Bricks about once a month. Friendly staff and the food is always good. I would like to see some new entrees though.

Thank saundiela
