Though currently closed, work is underway to renovate and restore the hotel to its former glory.

Mary's Café
Strawn is a good half-hour drive south of Mineral Wells, but if you try the famous chicken fried steak then you’ll gladly make the trip time and time again. Available in three sizes (the large is enormous), they are tender, not too greasy, and are covered in a delectable homemade gravy like Mom used to make. The chicken fried steak is paired with a serving of smashed potatoes that earn equally rave reviews. Try to visit outside of peak hours as the parking lot tends to fill up fast. 119 Grant Avenue
