We ate here and were a little disappointed. The gumbo was awful. Tried to find something gluten free, but none of the dishes were. Ordered shrimp with salad and it was ok. Place was crazy crowded. Service was good and very friendly.

Have eaten here many times. Catfish and onion rings are outstanding. Salmon, ribs, burgers, and dessert are all good too.

This was the very first Clear Springs location. It's actually located in Clear Springs, Texas between Seguin and New Braunfels. The building dates back to 1869 when it was mainly used as a grocery store for the locals. If you are ever in the area, it's worth the trip to check out the history that's behind this popular location. You better come early, standing room only is a common sight here.
