Went to the new Shannon's today for lunch. Two plates, two drinks, and two cobblers cost $35. It's good, but not that good. I asked cashier why the cost was so much? The reply was that each plate was $9. ?? I said, "I only have two plates? You're telling me I have $17 worth of drinks and cobblers?" With... More

On July 9th, Shannon's opened their new restaurant next door to the original cafe. It is upscale now and the food remains good as always. If you like Soul Food/Country cooking, this is a wonderful place to eat. I ate at the old cafe for lots of years. The new place is quite clean, the service is good, and food... More

Love this place! Greens, beans, fried chicken, beef tips over rice, steamed chicken, and hamburger steak are outstanding. All of their food takes me back home in my mind. The employees/owners are ever so friendly, too! Save room for their delicious peach cobbler. Also try their mini sweet potato pies made by Grandma, and you'll swoon for more! I would... More

Don't go here if you have a slow pitch softball game that night. You will still be full. You get plenty of good food at a decent price.

Shannon's Cafe and Catering serves good "down home" food that will "stick to your ribs." While the lunch servings are limited to a few items, the food is delicious the service is friendly. The folks at Shannon's provide a good service to the Bryan-College Station area. Give this place a try, you will like it. It's not fancy, but you... More
