The daily lunch special of corned beef, cabbage and boiled potatoes was okay. The place was packed so I ate at the bar. I had hoped for more.

A great place to eat. Breakfast was perfect with varied choices including German. Prices were very reasonable. The decor is pure Texas, beautiful. The waitress was very nice helping to create a nice experience. We will be back!

The Riverwalk is so convenient and enjoyable that any hotel is a pleasant walk to get there. I don't remember which would be the closest, if walking is difficult for you, but if not, it's no more than a ten or fifteen minute... More
