The handcrafted European-style breads, bagels, and pastries at BAKED! are the perfect way to start the morning in Granbury. If breakfast is not your preference, try the chicken salad with cranberries and toasted pecans on a buttery croissant at lunchtime. Part of the joy of visiting Baked! is that they enjoy sharing how they prepare breads and pastries. Diners can watch bakers working in the kitchen through two large windows.

Good, home-cooked meals in a relaxed environment are what guests can expect at Christina’s American Table. The salads, sandwiches, and homemade soups and desserts are loved by tourists and locals alike, especially the tomato basil soup.

Pearl Street Station

Located inside a 1933 Sinclair Gas Station, Pearl Street Station features a uniquely Texas mashup of BBQ and Cajun food. The menu has all of the usual favorites, including brisket sandwiches, ribs, crawfish etouffee, and cajun shrimp. But the true culinary adventure is creating your own meal. A brisket stuffed potato with a side of turkey and sausage gumbo is a Texan take on the traditional baked potato and soup lunch.

The Fillin' Station

Located on the historic Granbury square, the Fillin’ Station serves up a variety of classic food such as burgers, salads, sandwiches, homemade peach cobbler, and spun milkshakes. Robustly decorated in a vintage automobile motif, the interior honors the previous use of the building as a Marathon Oil station but remains a comfortable, family-friendly space. 

The Square Cafe

Inside one of the oldest buildings on the historic downtown square, The Square Café serves a delectable menu featuring breakfast and lunch alongside their scratch-made cobblers, sweet treats, and breads. The “Morning Sandwich” — egg with sausage or bacon and cheese on toast with hash browns — might remind you of a meal enjoyed each morning before running off to school as a kid. Rumor has it that John Wilkes Booth worked as a bartender in what is now the dining room and took up residence on the second floor. 

The Fisherman's Corner

Fresh seafood and ingredients set a high bar at Fisherman’s Corner. Stop by to enjoy a dark and stormy cocktail and fish and chips on one of the best outdoor patios in north Texas.

Eighteen Ninety Grille and Lounge

A fine-dining experience with rustic charm is the hallmark of Eighteen Ninety. The menu features primarily American fare, and the shrimp and grits is a popular item. However, the small escargot plate offers a unique departure from the norm if you are willing to try it. While you’re there, ask your waitress about the celebrities that have dined there and their favorite dishes. Rumor has it that Tom Hanks is rather fond of the green beans.

Ketzler's Schnitzel Haus And Biergarten
