  • "Good place to begin Sunday afternoon. Pleasant ambiance and enjoyable food variety."

  • "What's not to love? Food is fantastic. View of Forest Park is wonderful year-round. Staff is very nice and attentive. It's a very nearly perfect dining experience."

  • "The service was wonderful, from the first. The hostesses were friendly, already had our table by the window ready. Our waitress,Jamie's was great. Great food...corn chowder, tomato trio and lemon edame humus were excellent! Highly recommend this restaurant. P.s. Sunday brunches are also very good."

  • " Our Red Hat Ladies wanted to visit the History Museum and while there we decided that the ONLY place to have lunch was at Bixby's! I must say, we were all very pleased with the entire experience. Our reserved table was ready and waiting for us, and we had a most spectacular view of Forest Park. We were seated promptly and our server was right with us. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful about the menu, and was very patient as we took time to choose our meal. From seating us to the end of the meal and our departure, we all agreed that we were treated as we would be in a 5 Star restaurant! All of our members will definitely return and also recommend Bixby's to our friends and families!"

  • " We are on vacation and is often difficult to pick a restaurant. Our server, Brenda was very friendly and made feel like home (San Antonio, TX). She was very informative on the menu items. She made suggestions that were popular with the locals. The atmosphere was awesome, especially the view of Forest Park. Jane & Paul"

  • "I enjoy luncheons at Bixby's. I have tried a number of the menu choices and liked the mini crab item and the vegetable frittata. Yesterday I had the Monte Cristo and found it poor. The bread was like a soggy french toast, the chicken was Ok, but the cheese minimal. Overall, it is a very pleasant dining setting, and I will return."

  • "I always enjoy going to lunch at the History Museum. Bixby's is very consistent as to their food. I took my grandson and he loves the sliders they fix for children. We had a good time looking out the window seeing the activity in the park. Our waitress was very good."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We were disappointed with the restaurant. I think our expectations were too high. Too much mustard on the sausage sandwich, too much vinegar in the potato salad. The fish tacos were OK, bean side dish was bland. Because of this we did not get dessert."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "I love this brunch, it is a beautiful setting, good food and usually great service. Our waitress was very nice. I am not a fan of unruly children and while I know the management is not responsible for the behavior of other people's children there should be a way of telling those parents to control their children. After all this is not a cheap place nor a playground."

  • " The food at Bixby's is wonderful and presented well. All four in our dining party thoroughly enjoyed the entree's and breakfast offerings. We hope to be able to visit again soon."

  • "I dine in this location very often. Seldom is the food anything but great. However, the service is non existent. It appears they cannot handle a full house of patrons. I have another reservation in the very near future. I can only hope they will hire more servers and train them well. Another wonderful restaurant, Harvest, has just closed. Some of their servers may be looking and those servers are fabulous"

  • "Always a wonderful experience. Great food and service."

  • "3 of us had a salad and frittata, which was not good. It had beets that were hard, not roasted long enough. The frittatas were room temperature. There was very little dressing on the salad. The service was fair."

  • "Bixby's has earned their place in the best museum restaurants for their great food, service and views of Forest Park. Their menu changes with the seasons and each season has a fabulous selection of dishes. This season had asparagus bisque which was superb!! My favorite combo is a soup and appetizer --- both are generous enough to combine as a (very) filling lunch. I make opportunities to lunch at Bixby's."

  • "Food on two occasions was just very average, if that. Service was outstanding. Brunch that began at 10 had no food on buffet line except cold salads until 10:30. Inconvenient location of buffet for handicapped or elderly. Buffet selections, when available, limited and uninteresting. Menu items good, but small plates and cold. Lunch menu interesting and coordinated with special exhibition at museum, results disappointing. One comment, "Best part of the special sandwich was the bun!""

  • "Four guests attended for lunch. Three had a meat-based sandwich and all were pleased. One had a salad and it was barely edible."

  • "Took my daughter out for brunch and it was a treat! The staff was wonderful and the servings were small so you could try many things! It was quiet and beautiful. The food was absolutely delicious! Will definitely go again. A very special treat!!"

  • "We really like Bixby's approach to brunch--special menu items that are prepared to order as part of the overall buffet brunch. The buffet part of the brunch, including a round of beef, were excellent--loved the yellow tomato gazpachio."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "As usual, the food is always great and changes from time to time. The view is fantastic looking out over Forest Park making a meal to always remember!"

  • "Haven't been to Bixby's for a few months, and we found it continues to shine on its brunch. The buffet tables have been moved to the hall, thus providing more seating in the dining room. The options on the cold food table (salads, fruit, salmon, etc.) were tasty and interesting. I didn't try the hot items, because I wanted to save room for their Benedict of the day (I chose Black Forest ham) and their outstanding bread pudding. "

  • "Sitting at a beautiful window-side table, I was looking forward to a great birthday lunch with my late 80s Mom. We hoped to have time in our two-hour window to enjoy an exhibit, but service was so slow, no luck! When my Mom told our waitress she was hard of hearing, she turned to me to speak rather than my Mom - disappointingly disrespectful. After a 15-minute wait for dessert, she told us they didn't have it. It took another 10 minutes to get our check. I had hoped my Mom would be treated with the dignity she deserves. I will not be comfortable returning there with her."

  • "Ordered off the special "Prohibition" menu. 3 had the Monte Cristo which they liked. I had the Gussie.A bratwurst on a hamburger roll. The role was burned. The pickled red cabbage on the sandwich overwhelmed the sandwich. Impossible to taste the brat or gouda cheese. All 4 sandwiches came with what was supposed to be German potato salad. This was not the German potato salad I or others from the German area of south city know. It was cut up red potatoes swimming in a vinegar sauce. For dessert, we had lemon sorbet, raspberry custard. The sorbet was "pucker your mouth lemony. The custard was good. View was great. Staff was attentive & friendly."

  • "Bixby's is gone downhill. They have changed the menu...it is sparce to be polite. Staff not too attentive. What happened in the four months since I have been there? "
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Re-acquanited ourselves with this pleasant brunch venue, and after a lovely brunch, you can't help but spend some time at some of the great exhibits in the museum. Bruch was a nice combo of made-to-order plus buffet."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "The view of Forest Park is wonderful, on snowy days or perfect summer days. Food from Butler's Pantry with new , creative, healthy offerings that often suit the museums special exhibitions. Fish always good. Veggies great. A lovely place for reunion with friends, good with groups of 8 to 14. Servers don't balk at separate checks for groups. Deserts creative. Locavare."

  • "What more is there to say? Our experience was wonderful all around - food was attractive and very tasty, portions were very adequate (more than enough). Our wait staff was attentive and pleasant."

  • "Everything was more than expected. Only problem...I did not order mushrooms in my omelet. New omelet was brought, unfortunately my husband had finished his entree quite a while before I received my correct omelet. This should have been quicker, I've worked in kitchens and know it doesn't take that long to make and omelet!"

  • "We took a friend that had never been to Bixby's to the Sunday brunch. And she loved it! She plans on taking some of her family there for the Sunday brunch. It is a very relaxing and beautiful place to have a meal. The food was very good and the menu portions were perfect. If you're the type to load up on buffets this is the place. Excellent Salmon! When we arrived we sat for a long time and I finally asked if there was a waiter for our table. Once she appeared she was very good. Would I go back? Definitely!"

  • "The service was not great. They did not have enough servers. we had to wait at the beginning and the waitress disappeared after giving us our menus. The food was WONDERFUL! Yes,I would return. I've never had food there that was bad,it's just that the service is not up to par."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "A great place to dine. Good choices on the menu. Our waiter was pleasant, but because we were the last seating of the afternoon, I had the impression, at times, that people were waiting for us to finish so they could wind down their day. We were not given crackers to go with our meal until we asked and then I had the impression that this was not part of the meal. We did ask for dessert because we were celebrating our birthdays, and the waitress made this a complementary portion of our bill. She also recommended the chocolate brulee which was OUTSTANDING! They should make this a signature dessert. "

  • "I always love to dine there but....this luncheon "special" had very little meat in it. It was mostly the casing. The potatoes were not up to par...we should have had a choice with French fries."

  • "Food on the buffet wasn't kept hot enough. Food from the menu was apparently pre-cooked and sitting on a ledge in the kitchen. tasty but cold. "

  • "I have been going to brunch at Bixby's for some years. This week's was the least good in my experience. Removing the buffet from the dining room into the lobby seems to have devalued its quality: the sausages were limp, the bacon tasted tired, the salads were limp in their dressing, the beef was gray, and the fish was overcooked. It all tasted like it was warmed, not cooked, on the premises. The hot dishes served at table were better, but my egg benedict (just one - need to change the name on the menu?) was hard. Service was stretched, largely because the extra tables resulting from the buffet's exile don't seem to have resulted in extra staff. Servers are nice, ambience is good as ever - but it looks like the place is coasting."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Bixby's last Sunday. It was great. Window seat with beautiful view of Forest Park. We had reservations and there was no wait to be seated. I like the brunch with the included a la carte brunch items. For a la carte items we tried the omelets, eggs benedict and waffles. All were very good and individually prepared and came out hot. The brunch table was equally impressive. Fruit, cheese, sea bass and beef wellington were all delicious. Small deserts off the brunch table as well as the a la carte bread pudding were delicious. The included champagne was also good. Our server Nikki was busy but kept a watchful eye on us and got assists from other servers. Look forward to returning."
