We ended up here one night just by chance and now its one of my favorite places. The food is amazing. Yes I will agree the service is a little slow but I believe its because they are making everything from scratch. Everything we ordered...More

This is not a fancy place by any means, but their menu has something for everyone. The boiled shrimp is our favorite. The fried fish and shrimp are great too, served with homemade tartar sauce. Salads are fresh too.

Nothing fancy, but varied menu and lunch mon-fri for $5 plus tax includes drink and desert! Every other Monday is calf's liver and onions! Call to see when.

Best crawfish in Brenham especially the price @ $5.99/pound. And GOOD house wine @ $3.50/glass. Great food and presentation and VERY reasonable prices. But don't go expecting "atmosphere" and/or fast service. They're busy most of the time (locals come here so you KNOW it's good),...More

We enjoy dining at On Deck when we want a nice quiet place to have a slow paced meal either at lunch or in the evening with friends. The food quality has always been consistent and good and portion sizes are huge. I would say...More

This restaurant would be a great place for "restaurant impossible." We waited for 25 minutes to place our drink order and when they arrived the white wine was moldy. The table next to us arrived before us and the wait staff had not even taken...More
