I recently made a reservation online to stay at the Arbor House. The decision was made because of the comments from previous guests who had stayed there. They were much better than those from the big chain motels. Driving from Denver, I arrived with a full-blown infection that had the right side of my face swollen to twice its size. Immediately, the owner, Ron Stinson, drove my husband and I to the NIX Medical Center just a few blocks away. When we returned we found our accommodations so much more than we had expected. The sitting room was delightfully furnished in period pieces that made us feel at home right away. The bedroom was large and had a second TV as well as a comfy king size bed that lulled us to sleep at once. We were pleased to have not only a coffee pot but a microwave and small refrigerator as well. The large bathroom and decorations were charming. In the morning we found a picnic basket filled with juices, bagels, muffins,, cream cheese, jelly, a variety of cheese and large fruti cupps. The basket could be taken to the porch or out to the garden or eaten in the room. We were located in the perfect spot, as we walked to the Alamo, to the Riverwalk and to restaurants recommended by our host. After a full day of sight seeing, we returned to spend a couple of hours relaxing and reading in the hidden garden behind the house. The best part of our visit was our interaction with the staff. They made our visit memorable. We would recommend Arbor House to anyone who is looking for a unique experience.

If you want to try a different cuisine.....tired of Mexican, burgers or pizza all the time? Don't want that sluggish feeling ya get after eating so much pasta again? Experiment and try out some Israeli cuisine. Fresh and delicious food like sandwhiches made to the order---with even the vegetables cut/sliced fresh to order. I know this because I have seen it myself. Combinations of flavors and food items that are unique to many people, but that you will really LOVE when you go. Don't miss out on their incredible soups too! You'll want the entire batch of soup----they're that good! As a frequent customer here, I have seen new customers come in, order items they've never tried or tasted ever before, and watch them DEVOUR their plates and state how delicious the food is. Doesn't that say enough? Having coffee that's better than Starbucks doesn't hurt either! Seriously true, folks! Ya know how you can go into some places, ask them questions about their food and it's like they're annoyed with it or they just don't know? I promise you, you will NOT get that type of service here. They're happy to help, happy to explain things to you. So, just do it. Try them out. You'll thank me for the suggestion.
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It was close to my particular home, so that was already a plus. However, the actual dining experience was a pleasure. My b/f and I read the reviews about this place. 2 good out of 3. Makes me wonder if the bad one was because they were rude customers. Anyhow, the waiter was pleasant and prompt with everything. He was polite and very attentive to our wants. He suggested his favorite and gave reviews on the dishes we actually did choose. I had the Chicken canalonni (spelling) and it was WONDERFUL. Also, the ambiance of the inside was very pleasant. Clean, sophisticated and romantic. Very tastefully decorated. I was highly impressed with it. The food, from bread, to appetizer to entree' was magnificent. The prices were also very reasonable; comparable to Macaroni grill; however, the quality of food is better here. All in all, I give it 2 thumbs up. It WILL be going into to my recommendation list and my favorites to dine. So please, don't rely on the one negative review - give it a chance.(Pardon all spelling mistakes)
