“Out of This World!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

This place was absolutely awesome! My husband had a rib-eye steak and I had a sirloin steak. Both of us had garlic mashed potatoes, sweet corn, house salad and Texas toast. Everything that hit our taste buds was a delight! It's located in an old warehouse building that is superbly decorated with an amazing assortment of antiques. We only wish we had a Clear Springs in OUR hometown! Awesome!

“Fish Tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Believe it or not they actually serve the best Fish Tacos in Nacogdoches. They tend to get busy on the weekends and the wait for a table can be lengthy but it's worth it. It never disappoints, my wife and I love it.

“Not as good as I expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

My mom and I were traveling through Nacogdoches and decided to try Clear Springs. It has very good reviews. The onion rings, catfish, and beans were good. The french fries, hush puppies, and my mom's baked potato were nearly cold when they arrived at our table. We also had a very long wait for our food, and the place was not that crowded.
