Beginning with the September 16, 2021 meeting, The Round Table meetings will be held at Rudi Lechner’s German Restaurant at
2503 S. Gessner Rd
. Although well-known for their German food, Rudi’s also offers other choices of cuisines.

  • Dinner will be served in advance of the meeting. We ask all diners to arrive no later than 6:00 p.m. to be served in a designated area at our new venue, Rudi Lechner's, main dining room. Just say you’re with the Houston Civil War Round Table when being seated by Rudi’s staff.
  • Diners will order from a regular menu, and will have their own tabs. Tabs need to be closed by 6:55 p.m. in order for attendees to be in their seats in the separate meeting room by 7:00 p.m. (sharp).
  • The HCWRT meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.
  • Book sales and signings generally are at the discretion of the speaker.
