When we arrived in Bryan/College Station in 1971, there
were three places to eat. You chose between barbeque on butcher
paper at Martin's or Tom's, upscale at The Texan Restaurant, or
the Holliday Inn.
Great News! We now have wonderful dining
selections available. Here are a few of our favorites:
101 Church Ave.; College Station, TX 77840
At Café Eccell the fresh seafood is cleaned in-house
daily, the wood burning pizza fire is built by hand, and the kitchen
sizzles with food that excites the senses. In addition to serving fresh
seafood within 24 hours of arrival, there is a plentiful selection of
fare such as the Famous 101 Church Chicken Salad, the Certified Angus
Beef Steaks, and the Shrimp BLT. Also known for their pastry chef’s
dessert offerings, Café Eccell is a true grill and fresh seafood bistro.
Voted Best Dessert in 2003.

1701 University Dr. E.; College Station, TX 77840
Cheddar’s is unique in casual dining, and a favorite of
Aggie students. The contemporary upscale décor complements the fun,
high-energy service and ambiance that accommodates casual and special
occasion guests alike. From “falling off the bone tender” baby back ribs
and choice aged steaks to fabulous chicken tenders and sumptuous half
pound hamburgers, and a selection at heart healthy entreés from “a
restaurant guide to low-fat dining in the Brazos Valley.” Each menu item
is prepared from the highest quality products available and made from
scratch daily. And with such large portions of food and libations, you
will wonder how the prices are so reasonable.
NOTE: A "must go" for Aggies when their parents
come to visit, Cheddar's is often crowded and the wait can be long.
If the lot is full, the line is long. You can often bypass the
wait by eating in the bar.
