Camp Verde General Store and Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

First we tried going to Jim's Restaurant in San Antonio for breakfast, but there was a 45 minute wait to get a table. So we decided to drive out to Camp Verde for lunch. It is such a peaceful country drive out Highways' 16 and 173 and thanks to Open Table, our table was already reserved and waiting for us when we arrived. Our food was delicious and the waiter was very prompt and courteous. It is always a fun and relaxing time at Camp Verde and one of our top places to go for lunch.

A Saturday lunch in TexasHill Country! The grounds of Camp Verde lovely , the restaurant quiet and very clean. Service was fair, the table of 6 next to us had numerous issues with their meal causing constant traffic from the server, hostess and manager, very bothersome. Our sandwiches were very good but the fries, sweet potato fries, burger and grilled cheese were served lukewarm at most which we didn't complain about because my two young grandsons had endured a long wait for their food! Will try again later with family, maybe it will be a better experience. The General Store has anything and lots of character .

My friends and I really enjoy getting together for lunch at Camp Verde. The service is always good, the food is good, the atmosphere is and accommodations are great, and I would call it a perfect place for lunch and some gift shopping.

They have great food, decent prices for the amount of food. However, the time to get big groups (8) took a little longer than others even though some ordered the special of the day or a chef salad. The waitress was very good, but felt she was friendlier at the end of the meal; maybe for a better tip.
The Camp Verde Restaurant is only open f ...
The Camp Verde Restaurant is only open for lunch. Although it is located between two towns (Kerrville and Bandera) and somewhat isolated, its well-deserved reputation for good food and relaxed dining means it is always busy. So make a reservation using OpenTable to be sure you can be seated. The menu is rather simple, heavier on sandwiches and burgers than on large main courses. But the food is prepared carefully and well, and the portion sizes are ample for the price. You will want to save room for dessert, so skip the appetizers and ask for a take-home box for part of your main course. Their fruit cobblers with ice cream are very rich and filling. Or just treat yourself to some of their delicious ice cream or pies. The service is relaxed, so you will have time to talk with your dining partners without feeling rushed. The restaurant is relatively quiet, too, so you never have to yell over the din of servers and diners or piped-in music. When you're finished, look through the eclectic items in the camp store. You're sure to find something interesting.

10 miles from the city of Bandera, what a cute little place with a really nice outdoor area. Water fountains and nice garden area. Friendly staff. There is a "store" which is really a large gift shop where they sell things from Mud Pie and the like.

Camp Verde is a very unique and special place. I love taking friends there to eat a delicious lunch and don't forget dessert. Then it is fun to shop at the store which is a treat in itself. The grounds are beautiful too. This time I was taken there for my birthday.

Camp Verde was just short drive through the beautiful hill country from our home in Kerr County. The lunch menu left us with many choices, but decided on the grilled turkey, Swiss, grated onions with cranberry jalapeño compote on sourdough for my husband and the BBQ burger with cheddar topped with an onion ring. Our waiter suggested the onion rings as a side which he could do instead of the homemade chips or fries that are offered. The burger was cooked to a perfect medium rare and my husband gave up after just half a sandwich--great for lunch the following day. Ask for your beverage in a go-cup if you would like a refill for the road.

we are regulars at Camp Verde restaurant. They are always very busy, so this time I decided to reserve a table! the safe is always pleasant and outgoing ! we take our kids sometimes and they enjoy the desserts as well as the delicious menu!

This is my fourth time to come and always special. Love the shop. Everyone is helpful and friendly. Service staff is terrific. We love the food. My only suggestion would be for ladies, half sandwich with soup or salad would be terrific. But they were glad to let us share and gave us extra plates silver etc. They even knew it was a birthday and said, "Happy Birthday to whomever in this group is celebrating." Love it. Looking to go back.

Absolutely wonderful food, my girl and I love this place. The best part about it is the quality of the food, the cleanliness of the place and the smell when you first walk in, it just smells clean and well managed

Great food & service with a historic flavor. This place may be off the beaten path, but it is worth the drive. I suggest making a reservation, because they tend to fill up any time they are open. Spend some time in adjoining store as well.

Our Wednesday noon party of 4 enjoyed the hearty meatloaf & mashed potatoes, delicious Reuben sandwiches and the specialty hot ham & cheese sandwich. The Reubens are large (glad I asked for mustard on the side) and could be easily shared and the meatloaf entree was large enough to ask for a to-go. Potato chips and french fries are too heavy (ask for a different side). Coconut cream pie was yummy as expected. Uncertain why the buttermilk pie was served with a scoop of vanilla icecream. It was a little thick...average. Waiter was friendly, but not forthcoming to offer dessert (additional) forks so we could share desserts. Iced tea could be more refreshing. Glad we had made a reservation. Most tables were full.

Every visit to Camp Verde is wonderful. The food is delicious. The service is great.
We usually bring visitors to Camp Verde. I was there only two weeks before and the store had changed some of the displays. Never boring to go back to shop and dine!

We found it to be great. Good food,service,staff etc. No complaints what so ever. Really amazed
at reviews that complained about service, salty food etc. As I said, we really enjoyed the experience. Have told all our friends about it and intend to return for Christmas Pageant.

We took our daughter & son-in-law for lunch last week at Camp Verde for the first time & we couldn't have been more pleased. We've been going to Camp Verde for many years now, but this was our first time to dine & we couldn't have been happier. We all ordered different sandwiches & my wife had the meatloaf which she said was better than hers even & the sandwiches were all delicious. The ladies couldn't finish their meals so when it came time for dessert, we opted out, but got a sampling of various gelato & they all were so good that my wife & I know we'll be leaving room next time. This is definitely going to be a new favorite place of ours to go to & still, great shopping for the wife. I must add the kitchen shop is a great addition for men too. This is definitely a find & we highly recommend it.

Very nice atmosphere, and the food and service are good. It's a good place to have lunch with friends or by yourself. It's out of the city / town and so it's a different, more peaceful environment. I feel like I've been on vacation after having lunch here.

Took husband to Camp Verde Restaurant for Father's Day (his request). Of course, we were not disappointed. Food (meatloaf for the hubby and sandwich for me) was tasty and plentiful (took leftovers home). The following day we recommended Camp Verde to my husband's doctor....two days later when we saw him again, he said he had already looked up Camp Verde and glad to see Open Table...he and his family are planning a trip there soon.
