Great place to have great food and relaxing atmosphere. Been here before and the food is superb. Lots to choose from and plenty of seating. Do recommend calling ahead to see how long of a wait. But definitely worth the wait.

We have eaten their on numerous occasions. The fried catfish and onion rings are the best I've had in New Braunfels. The menu has several entrees including Texas Chicken Fried Steak with white gravy. The decor is old Texas and the atmosphere is very casual....More

Clear springs is a great one of a kind restaurant just outside of New Braunfels. It has antiques hanging from just about every inch of its walls. Their chicken strips are always a win! Really good garlic mashed potatoes too!

I have eaten allot of cat fish in my days, but I must really say this has to be the best! If you don't like cat fish, then I would highly recommend the salmon added to a salad.

Overall the food is good here, but the catfish strips are truly overrated. I've been here twice and both times found these to be very 'thin' not to mention over-cooked (I noticed that on the onion rings as well). To that end, the ratio of...More

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.
