Branch Water Tavern - Closed

510 Shepherd Houston, TX 77007 | Heights | 713-863-7777

Location Description:

Branch Water Tavern is a great example of a uniquely American restaurant style that features a well-stocked bar and simple meat and seafood dishes that don't have French names. In many ways, the Heights-area new American tavern is a throwback to early American eateries. The menu includes oysters on the half shell, crab cakes, venison medallions, beefsteak and smoke-roasted pork chops - items that were just as common on the menus of American taverns of the 18th century.
