Description: 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.

If you like catfish places this is a pretty good one. The onion rings are top notch.

We make it a point to eat here at least once when we are in the Lake McQueeny area. It’s always about catfish. The food her is very good and the service good. It gets very crowded on most weekend nights so we arrive early. I personally don’t like to sit in the upstairs area as it sometimes gets stuffy and warm up there. We prefer seating on the main floor. Ca’t tell you about he other food since we all had catfish.Iced tea was very good as were the hush puppies.

Clear Springs has some of the best catfish and shrimp anywhere. The atmosphere is great. Our family takes all our visitors to the New Braunfels area, there first. If you're not a fan of fish, this place will change your mind!

The atmosphere is interesting and the service is fine, but the food makes you long to be closer to the coast for fresh fish/seafood. Bland.
