Meandering south through Texas, the Trinity River flows over 700 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. In 1849, her protective bluffs in newly-organized Tarrant County were the perfect spot for a small Army outpost, while after the Civil War young cowboys heading up the Chisholm Trail guided their cattle across her muddy banks on their way to feed a hungry nation.

Today, our river reflects the modern skyline of Fort Worth in her waters and our neighbors enjoy a vibrant, outdoor lifestyle along her trails. The Trinity River is part of what makes our town so special.

Our Food Says It All

“Being originally from South Louisiana, it has been a challenge to find a restaurant in Fort Worth that captures the flavor of Cajun/Creole food and the essence of New Orleans dining. The Tributary Cafe has hit the mark. The shrimp and okra gumbo, BBQ shrimp and bread pudding, a classic New Orleans trio, were all excellent. The blackened scallops were fresh and delicious. The fried green tomatoes were very good as well. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff was accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be back!!”
