We were coming to college station to see The Illusionists so I asked a friend who went to college there to recommend a place to dine. He recommended the pizza and strawberry tart, we had the big fat Greek pizza, crab cakes, the special for that evening (swordfish), and also got the tart sampler because we didn't want to just...

Recently went there for my grandson's birthday and it's still one of the best in town. I've been going to Eccell since it was first opened near campus and was never disappointed. Still the best! Love their pizza and tried one of their pumpkin spice tarts this time. Sooooo good!!

Needing lunch on a road trip, we located this restaurant online. The menu looked creative, and the reviews were good. We arrived at 1:00 p.m., and waited 15 minutes for a table. Although there were many vacant tables and an abundance of wait staff, there must have been a bottleneck in the kitchen. Service was slow, but eventually we ordered... More

Ate brunch last week. Gets quite a crowd so go early on sports weekend. Midas tacos had nice touch of spice. Others had the chicken (thighs) and waffles. The bourbon maple syrup was a nice touch. Has a Bloody Mary and mimosa bar.

As always, this weekend we had an amazing brunch experience. The staff is great, and explained the options of the "build your own..." bars. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Exccell has consistently good food and service. It has wood fired pizza ovens for great pizza. The bar is a good place for happy hour.

We have always enjoyed the food an atmosphere here. The service is always friendly and good and the menu selections are eclectic. My wife and I always have the Mediterranean plate and the Crab Ames appetizer which we share followed by a light lunch or dinner item.

High class yet casual and comfortable. The service if terrific, the menu filled with interesting offerings deviating from the national chains. I have sampled several items on the menu and have not been disappointed. Every meal was a new experience, and I was both delighted and satisfied with the food. The wine and beer selection is excellent, the bar service... More

I had Voodoo Salmon with mashed potatoes and toasted almond green beans were delicious. I loved it and will eat it again. My colleague had pan fried pizza which was very good as well. I recommend this place to others. My only issue was the service needs to be up by one notch.
