i was accidentally laid over in brownsville on new years eve...i walked to cobbleheads from my hotel, and just wanted to order some food to go...not only would they not give it to me, but they were going to charge me ten dollar cover charge for the priveledge...because they had a band later that night..it was only 7pm....i obviously wasnt intrerested in staying for their silly party..just wanted some good food to take back to hotel... granted the past three times i had been there, the fodd wasnt that great, just better than mcdonalds...and i had spent a minimum of $75 every time i went to their resturaunt every time i was in town, in the few months before...i just assumed, they would give me decent service and let me order something to go after spending so much in their resturaunt already...besides..not letting someone get something to go at 7pm is utterly rediculous..they aint that good..not like i was at tavern on the green, for chrissakes..i am in town twice a week..still only a few blocks away...and i will never give them another penny...i think the only reason they get the business they do, is because of friends of the owner..otherwise, their food is so boring and their deck would be nice if it was at someones house

Visiting Cobbleheads is always a highlight of our trips to Brownsville. The service is excellent as well as the food and presentation. We love the red tortilla soup!

They had a hopping live band playing Sunday early evening that was great. So far this has been my favorite restaurant experience in Brownsville. Red tortilla soup was good though not life-changing. I could have lived without the fried ice cream, But the tacos Chicos were incredible as were the Charro beans. This is certainly as much a far as it is a restaurant perhaps even more so, But it is right on the water and I would definitely consider going back soon.

This place is a Brownsville mainstay, with many locals and great events to support the community. I stopped here with some business companions and we all enjoyed the food thoroughly. I had a cheese steak and it was prepared perfectly, all the food and drinks were well received. Great place off the main drag with plenty of offerings. It does get busy so pick a good time because parking is a premium.

the food and waiters were good, but the ducks won't stay off deck, evidently they have been "trained" by some of the customers to expect food from everyone.
