314 Wimberley Square, Wimberley, TX 78676
Longleaf prides themselves on their locally sourced seasonal offerings, which many restaurants in Wimberley are able to do. However, this restaurant has something that others don’t, beyond the excellently crafted dishes: their outdoor seating is both a restaurant and a gorgeous sculpture garden. It’s also shaded by oak trees, and in this Texas heat, that’s a must-have.

Formerly Ino’z, this spacious patio restaurant sidles right up to a creek so you can chill the Wimberley way. Enjoy American eats in a massive outdoor space that feels like a neighbor’s backyard BBQ.
