Continental | College Station, College Station / Bryan

We had a good overall experience. However the service was a little rocky. The server spoke very rushed and was picking up items from the table before we finished eating them. The server was very knowledgeable however he did not offer any specials or coffee with dessert. The food was outstanding. More

Steakhouse | College Station, College Station / Bryan

If you are in the mood for an amazing combination of an incredible salad bar, with nearly infinite choices of protein, ranging from chicken, to pork, to lamb, to beef - you must visit Casa do Brasil. You may want to consider fasting for about a day, however, before going to this restaurant. The food is absolutely amazing, the service and staff very attentive. Very good wind and beer list. More

The food was well paced, flavorful, fresh, and we all cleaned our plates! The servers were professional, charming, knowledgeable, and the right amount of attentive. The ambiance was calm and classy. We enjoyed the fresh bread a delicious homemade butters, the tempura sweet potato were lightly bartered and had a depth of flavor, the scallops were fresh and succulent with a delicious sweet fried rice and hearty vegetable pieces starring roasted brussels that were divine, the chicken fried steak had a juicy piece of meat and a flavorful light breading with a decadent gravy, and the red snapper was fresh with a mix of lovely vegetables. we ended with the light soufflé with a hearty and sweet beer caramel sauce and the classic cookies which were the butteriest snickerdoodle and double chocolate cookies I’ve ever had but also light and tender. We will definitely be coming back! More
