Went to Branch Water Tavern on Valentine's Day and had a lovely meal. Only complaint would be that we were in and out of there quite quickly, as courses seemed to be brought out in quick succession. However the food was lovely, and will definitely be going back.

Branch Water Tavern is one of our favorite restaurants in Houston. This time we went to the Sunday Brunch and I made a reservation because brunch is popular! The menu changes constantly but we saw a lot of our favorites and started the meal with the Foie Gras. When it arrived we noticed that it was different than before: smoother... More

Will definitely return here! First impressions boosted by creative presentation of caesar and iceberg wedge salads which are huge, so consider sharing! Kobe burgers full of flavor but fries nothing special and don't live up to rest of the food. Next time we'll sit cloer to the bar to sample both the oyster and whiskey offerings. Exterior does not prepare... More

I am visiting from Michigan this week and my sister took me to Branch Water for lunch. What a wonderful and delightful time we had. The service was exceptional and the food excellent! Make sure to try the chicken fried oyster appetizer - to die for! Also, the crab cake appetizer. Can't wait to come back and I'll make sure... More

Best chicken fried oysters I have ever eaten! A must try appetizer. The service is impeccable and dining outdoors on a beautiful day or evening is a great experience. The Kobe burger was delectable and the crab cake was outstanding.

We wanted to try a new spot for Sunday brunch and hit the prize with this lovely spot on South Shepard! The restaurant has lovely modern and comfortable decor with a nice patio. They had bottomless Bloody Marys to offer, we didn't take the offer but given another day, maybe!! My favorites were the chicken-fried oysters, i could have eaten... More

Branch Water Tavern has several unique dishes that are exquisitely prepared. The restaurant is small and classy. A great retreat from the usual hub bub. The wine list was huge but we chose to sample the beers which had many that you don't find anywhere else. The crispy olive appetizer or chicken fired oysters were excellent! The entrees were also...

Made a reservation through Open Table. When we arrived we learned that there was a private wine tasting party scheduled so we were turned away without an apology. Had a great meal at Lorenzo's.

We went to Branch Water Tavern after reading all the reviews that were very positive. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and very nice. The music was extremely loud so it was hard to hear anybody talking next to you. Since this was voted one of the more romantic places in Houston, I was surprised it was so loud. Its... More

The food we had here was completely unbelievable it was so good. We went for Houston's Restaurant Weeks and had their set menu.
