    Rinky-Tinks Ice Cream Parlor & Sandwich Shop: Excellent lunch on the Square!

    by saraheg77 Written Feb 1, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stana, Me & Angela

    My friends and I stopped here for a light lunch. We had fun putting quarters in to the juke box that had a good selection of songs. There was also a guy there doing a little bit of live music. He waited til our songs were done on the juke box!

    The sandwiches had good prices - $5 or $6 and there was a wide variety of tasty sounding choices of hot and cold sandwiches and wraps.

    We didn' t have any ice cream, but it looked good!

    I highly recommend it as an excellent stop for lunch!

    Favorite Dish: The chicken salad sandwich on a croissant was very good!! 5 out of 6 of us got that! It came with a pickle, but chips were extra. But the sandwich was big and filling for lunch.

    The Merry Heart Tearoom and Gift Shop
    4 more images

    The Merry Heart is so called after the scripture from Proverbs 15:15--"A merry heart hath a continual feast."

    Not only was this a tearoom (pic#3), but also an antique and gift store (pic #2). As my husband and I thought about what to order I noticed the colorful floral tablecloths, ivy covered arbor, the presence of antique accessories, pastel pink and blue dinner service and friendly conversation surrounding us. Surprisingly other ladies had been successful in dragging their husbands into this delightfully feminine realm, too.

    I ordered the Merry Heart Chicken Salad Plate ($10.50) which included their signature chicken salad recipe, fresh fruit with yogurt dip, pumpkin bread with strawberry-cheese filling and salad with poppy seed dressing. It was an excellent choice! (pic #4)

    On a recent visit, I ordered the sampler ($12.50) which included a small cup of chicken noodle soup, a wedge of spinach quiche, pumpkin bread with strawberry-cheese filling, assorted melons and yogurt dip. Another tasty dish! (pic #5)

    Merry Heart tearoom serves an afternoon tea from 3:00-5:00 pm by reservation only. Regular hours are Mon.-Thurs. 11:00am-3:00 pm; Fri. & Sat. 11:00am-6; Sun.11:00am-3:00 pm.

    Favorite Dish: Absolutely tasty meal, pretty antiques and accessories

    Rinky Tinks: An ice cream parlor with pizzaz!

    Rinky Tinks captures the 50's so well- Elvis posters and Marilyn Monroe photos decorate the walls, oldies music blares from the jukebox and an old-time ice cream counter welcomes each and every customer!

    After ordering my usual calorie laden treat...a chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream cone, I settled into my chair and just took in my surroundings. Rinky Tinks is just plain cheery! One has a choice of sitting at the counter stool or on a chair at the table. Although we ordered ice cream, other items were on the menu. There was alot of finger-licking going on in the room, so the food must be real good.

    A small band platform sat at one end of the restaurant with a sign announcing: LIVE MUSIC 6pm-9pm. Upcoming dates: November 18th and 25th.

    Recently we made a return visit with our daughter and grandson in tow. They loved Rinky Tinks!

    Favorite Dish: Many flavors of ice-cream and other typical lunchroom fare

    Pearl Street Pasta House: Dine on the Square!

    by saraheg77 Written Feb 1, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stana & Ang!

    We stopped by the Pasta House before our play at the opera house. I liked the decor inside and the waiters were friendly... the service was a bit slow, but it was Saturday evening. They were also out of a couple of dishes, but said it was due to a large party. The prices were decent for the food. Bread was included, but salads were extra. Overall, it was a lovely experience. I would recommend trying it out!

    Favorite Dish: I had the manicotti. It was good, but very cheesy. My friend had the italian quiche and it was very tasty. Another friend had a pasta dish with chicken and a brandy wine sauce that wasn't red. I think it was my favorite!

    Under the Coffee Grinder

    The atmosphere was fun and the steamer was delicious. My friends had coffees and hot chocolates that they enjoyed very much. They all had yummy whipped cream on the top! I highly recommend it as a great place to warm up and rest while shopping around the square.

    Favorite Dish: I had the Caramel Hot Angel, which was a steamer... (hot milk). It was very yummy!!

    Nutshell Eatery, Bakery & Creamery: For Sweet or Savory

    The Nutshell Eatery,Bakery and Creamery
    1 more image

    Our thoughts turn to ice cream on hot summer days and that's exactly what prompted us to stop by Nutshell Eatery, Bakery and Creamery on one visit to Granbury.

    Tempting bakery items sat behind a glass case, while a mural depicting 19th century life overlooked the small dining area. My husband and grandson opted for ice cream cones, while I just ordered an icy diet soda.

    Although we didn't order a meal at the Nutshell Eatery, the restaurant seemed to be serving up the usual lunch time fare.

    Cotton Patch Cafe: Great Food; Nice Atmosphere

    Cotton Patch Cafe Granbury
    2 more images

    $14 as of July 2012. Back in 1989 two guys decided to open a restaurant called Cotton Patch Cafe in the town of Nacogdoches, Texas. They tried to create an imaginative and varied menu with good grilled items and a friendly atmosphere. Today they have 41 restaurants in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. I stopped in the one in Granbury because it was near my motel and because I had tried one before and been pretty pleased. This one looked much like the other inside and out and I figured I was going to have a good dinner. They exceeded my expectations. The food was very good and my waitress was professional, friendly and had a great smile (Hi Michelle). The Cotton Patch serves all you can eat catfish on Friday and Saturday for $10, and has daily lunch specials. Hours are 11 AM to 9:30 PM Sunday through Thursday and 11 AM to 10 PM on Friday and Saturday.

    Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed my Cajun Duo (fish and shrimp) which had just the right touch of spices.

    Brazos Smokehouse: Good Smokehouse Great Atmosphere

    by Basaic Written Jul 6, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Brazos Smokehouse

    $19 as of July 2012. The Brazos Smokehouse is located in an historic building on the town square in the center of downtown. They have attempted to preserve the old atmosphere with the deep wood grains and the shiny hardwood floors. The menu is fairly varied and has prime rib, burgers, sandwiches and barbecue. They also have a kid's menu and a few alternatives (like a good blacken Tilapia) for those with a taste for something different. They also serve beer and wine. Only open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in winter.

    Favorite Dish: I enjoyed my Blackened Tilapia pretty well. The spices were just about right.

    The restaurant features two large painted murals on one of its wall. One of them depicts John Wilkes Booth tending bar and Jesse James about to shoot a bear. John Wilkes Booth (alias John St. Helen) apparently confessed his entire sordid past to the Gordon family on his deathbed and even disclosed where he hid the murder weapon. The Gordon family still apparently have the gun which is said to have nearly split the United States apart for the second time in less than a decade.

    This small but legendary restaurant, serves a good selection of super sandwiches, grilled sandwiches, hamburgers as well as a selection of salads. For breakfast they have omelettes, eggs/ham/bacon, blueberry pancakes and French toast as well as a buffet on Sundays. There are also daily specials which are served with vegetables, rolls and dessert.

In the restoration of the square, the building has now turned into a restaurant. The building is listed on the Texas Historical Register.
