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.

This is our go to place for catfish, fish and especially onion rings. Always great food, quick friendly service and good old-fashioned home town atmosphere. Just one warning to newbies - don't miss the fantastic onion rings, but only order the large serving if you bring the family or your party includes a lumberjack. As a couple with healthy appetites we learned the hard way that the small order is more than enough for two. This spot has a permanent space on our Friday date night rotation.

This restaurant is a great family venue. The seafood and steaks are great and the onion rings are some of the best around. I would highly recommend this place for in town guest and casual dining, without breaking the pocket book.

This catfish feed is guaranteed to make you smile. Don't miss out on the opportunity to enjoy this Texas treat. It's worth the drive. Clear Springs is comparable to a catfish dinner of my mother-in-law's excellent kitchen in Live Oak County.

Best chicken fried chicken and chicken fried steak we've had. Also had a strip of fried catfish that was just like the one I make at home. Awesome sweet tea and amazing service!! Will surely come again! I'd like to add that the place was full, however there was no wait and the hot food was served pretty quick.
