Anna Caplan is a Fort Worth freelance critic who has contributed reviews and news to the Star-Telegram and since 2009. Here are her top picks for the Best Brunches in Fort Worth.

Piattello Italian Kitchen:

The best-fried calamari dish around (with Castelvetrano olives!), a stellar Shrimp Panzanella salad or eggs in purgatory, you can never go wrong when chef Scott Lewis is in the kitchen.

5924 Convair Drive (Waterside), Fort Worth 76109, 817-349-0484


Biscuits to die for and a decadent lobster and crawfish pot pie (or if Mom’s a burger fan, one of the best ones in Fort Worth) await on the Clearfork restaurant’s brunch menu.

5282 Marathon Ave. (Clearfork), Fort Worth 76109, 682-707-3965

B & B Butchers:

Go for the Gorilla Bread (Monkey bread with sage sausage, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce), stay for the five types of benedicts, alone. One of the most comprehensively delicious brunch menus in town. 

5212 Marathon Ave. (Clearfork), Fort Worth 76109, 817-737-5212 

Chef Point Cafe:

Long-heralded, worth the drive and always delicious, this converted gas station north of Fort Worth serves an excellent lobster bisque, as well as its famous “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” roasted duck and bread pudding. 

5901 Watauga Road, Watauga 76148, 817-656-0080 

The Bearded Lady:

You will probably have to wait on checking out the brunch at The Bearded Lady until Mother’s Day as they put on the finishing touches with their move from Magnolia Avenue to The South Main Village.  This South Main haunt has terrific food, from its breakfast burger (sausage and ground beef patty with a fried egg and bacon) to a killer smoked salmon salad. 

300 S. Main St., Fort Worth 76104, 817-349-9832 

Craft and Vine:

Try the French Brunch, oui oui. From French Onion soup to an ahi Nicoise salad to sole meuniere, this Roanoke eatery consistently impresses.

310 S. Oak St., Roanoke 76262, 817-464-8181 


If buffets are your thing, you could hardly do worse at this new triple hat of an entertainment complex in Clearfork. The “bottomless” buffet has omelet, waffle and carving stations. There’s even a kids table with unlimited french fries. Bocce and bowling are extra.

5001 Trailhead Bend Way (Clearfork), Fort Worth 76109, 682-352-0808 


Traditional egg dishes to spaghetti carbonara, this downtown mainstay has it all. The Fritto Misto (fried seafood) and focaccia are particularly good.

450 Throckmorton St., Fort Worth 76102, 817-885-7502 

Restaurant 506: 

Pecan-crusted crab cakes, grilled pork chops, and peaches, or a quiche Lorraine, this Arlington standby has your Mother’s Day card practically written. 

506 N. Center St., Arlington 76011, 817-801-5541
