When we claim that there’s something good to eat any time of day, we aren’t kidding. Mary’s Tacos is open for breakfast and lunch.

Visitors can try something brand new here, or stick with an old favorite, Creek style. A light and airy indoor dining room and a wide patio make dining inside or outside a delight at The Creek Restaurant.

Little Gretel is a restaurant like none other in Texas Hill Country. Authentic Czech food, combined with American and German influences, is served at Little Gretel daily.

Bratwurst, pretzels, fries and – of course – beer are available in the newly added, more casual biergarten area. The restaurant and chef alike have won awards both for good business and delicious food. There is a private room for parties, and there’s always something special going on: brunch on Sunday, music every weekend and happy hour Wednesday through Saturday.
