A lunch stop at the Moosehead cafe in Crockett Texas. Definitely a local place with local color and decor. Down home food. I had a salad - that was very good. Service was very good, food was very good

I enjoyed the hospitality and the food. Everything was great. They do not have lemon to go with tea. That is a shame as I feel that Tea and lemon go together. At any rate, small complaint as everything was perfect.

On the Square in crockett..this restaurant is larger than it looks..and it was packed with customers..The food is plain but very good. There were several waitresses on duty so service was quick and good. Blue Bell ice cream is sold here along with several selections of coffee beans...we were passing through and happy we stopped.

This busy place on the square has good food and fun atmosphere. There is usually a daily special (my boss loves Meatloaf Wednesday!) and my personal favorite is the Chicken fajita on flat bread. They also sell jars of jellys and pickles, as well as coffee beans and old fashioned candy. Just a warning - the owners are conservative and... More

Recommend the fried catfish and onion rings. Generous portions. The setting is rustic and old South. While the sign on the door says 2:30 closing time, food ordering stops promptly at 2:00.

Moosehead Café is right in the square in Crockett and offers good southern cooking! The old building adds to the visit and the staff is friendly.

First, note,. NOW closes at 2:30pm everyday not at 5pm as TripAdvisor states. We shared the chicken fried steak. Very good. They charge $1 for extra plate. Dissapointed it Did Not come with a veggie. Only potatoes and gravy. They have home-made pie's. If passing through give them a try.

Thank Arleen S
