A word from Bob's Steak and Chop House - Austin
A word from Bob's Steak & Chop House - Austin


Bob's Steak & Chop House is ranked as one the top steakhouses in the country. USDA Prime Beef seasoned and broiled perfectly. On top of that, the salads are huge, the shrimp are monsters and the bread is to die for. Our service is experienced, the wine list is extensive and the drinks stiff. If you're not a regular already, come by and let us prove why we're so proud of what we do.

Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Bob's. We are both steak and potato lovers. We started with the calamari appetizer, shared a porterhouse with smashed potatoes, and had a side of lobster mac n cheese. The food was of the best quality, and everything tasted amazing! To top it off, we were served by an amazing, talented, and friendly server. We felt like she was only serving us that evening, like we were her only customers. She made us feel special, and I'm sure that's also why the food tasted so good. If you love steak and potatoes, and love great service, you should definitely try Bob's. Remember that you get what you pay for!"

  • "First time was OK - food was much better my last visit. Tried some different items - much better steaks - and did not have the "degree to doneness" issues I had the first time. I would go back."

  • "The salad, baked potato, carrot and bread were good but nothing special. My filet was melt-in-your-mouth wonderful, and my husband said his ribeye was the same. Both cooked perfectly!"

  • "There are so many excellent steak restaurants in Austin that the wait staff is really what has begun to set them apart. Christian, our primary waiter, was attentive, helpful but not to the point of pestering. It was my son's birthday and we had planned to leisurely dine, and dine we did for about four hours. Christian did not rush us, timed all of our drink refills and meal service delivery perfectly and in an unhurried fashion. Never did we feel like we were being pushed to get done so they could turn over the table on that busy Friday evening. The peanut butter brownie dessert is worth every calorie. Definitely plan to return and spend some time in the roof bar. It was a great evening of great company, good food and great service."

  • "This was our first time at Bob's. We sat at a roof top table. It was a beautiful night. Our waitress, Jennifer, was wonderful. She had a great personality and was appropriately attentive. The meal was superb. Everything from the appetizer to desert was great. We had a bottle of "E" wine that was very drinkable and reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends."

  • "There was nothing wrong with our visit, but nothing outstanding either. Just average for a higher end steakhouse, there are much better places in town. No disappoints and no excitements"

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 22nd Anniversary (27th if you include dating) at Bob's...We spent 3 hours having dinner reliving our favorite memories (good and bad) of ourselves and our two boys. We had reservations in the restaurant, but opted for the roof bar area... great views, great service, and a great night...Fortunately, good weather! We had an exceptional experience at Bob's! Steak was good, not great...Bob's needs thicker cuts of beef; Service was excellent... Our Waitress Kari was awesome... her patience was impeccable..she seemed to show-up at the exact moment my wife and I paused conversation. Bravo! Overall, four stars...great location and views! But, I am a ranch raised Texas boy who expects 3" Cuts of beef at a minimum!"

  • "We had tickets for a concert at Austin City Limits and chose this restaurant because it is near by. The food was good although a bit pricey. The waiter was very attentive. He recommended dishes, told us the "specials", and recommended we not chose one dish as the cut of meat was not the best. I am now wondering if he just wanted us to choose something more expensive. He did not,however, tell us the prices of the specials. A friend and I shared an appetizer (lobster) which was wonderful. We were surprised when the bill came to discover it was $89. I would have chosen something else had I know that beforehand. So the location is good, but the quality of food does not warrant those prices. Doubt we will do that again."

  • "When i made the reservation, it asked if there were any accommodations, and while we didn't have any, we did request a cozy corner table since it was our anniversary and we had never been to Bob's so we weren't sure how busy or loud it might be. Upon arrival, we were immediately seated and presented with an anniversary card from the restaurant and treated so special, it couldn't have been more perfect! The food was amazing! From the best crab cake ever to the glazed whole carrot! My only regret was that we couldn't finish the yummy dessert that they gave us! While this place is not in our family's normal budget, we will for sure be back for our next super special occasion!"

  • "From the moment we were seated we knew we had picked the right steakhouse for a special dinner. The service was spot on with the knowledge of the menu, recommendations and presentation. The food was decadent and rich where needed, and the 23oz. waygu Tomahawk Ribeye was worth fighting for, if it came down to it. Drinks and desert were also great and all of the service flowed really well to where you got what you wanted right on time but never felt suffocated."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Items that were very frustrating and shouldn't be happening at upscale steakhouses: -Ordered class of house Cabernet that wasn't brought back to the table for 25 minutes, after appetizers came and were finished. I received my wine with my main course. -My water was empty during this wait. -When clearing appetizers, my date and I's forks were taken away. We were served entrees 5 minutes later, but had to wait another 15 for the server to come to our table, to inform him that we were without steak knives, to cut our steaks, at a steakhouse. -Upon receiving our bill, the server took it upon himself to decide that Bob's "house wine" was actually the most expensive glass on the menu and charged me for wine that I clearly did not order."

  • "In the past 10-12 years, a multitude of high-end steakhouses have popped up to fill a clear void in the Austin market (back then, it was either Ruth's Chris or Ray's). When I happened by the new outpost of Dallas-based institution Bob's Steak and Chop House at Lavaca and Third, I knew we were in for a treat. And boy was I right. These guys are on another level. The portions, as you would expect, are substantial and cooked to perfection. Service was fantastic. And even though the hubbub of SXSW was going on outside, it didn't intrude on our enjoyment of our meal. These guys are easily at the top of the heap on the Austin steakhouse list. If you're needing a good steak, get to Bob's and see how it's done."

  • "We had Steaks and at first I got my 30oz ribeye medium-welldone instead of medium-rare, and although it was a 60 USD bit of meat, they changed it without comments. The steaks were brilliant and the staff more than friendly."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Our dinner transcended the delicious food because of the amazing, attentive service from Melita. She steered us right with the food choices, kept our drinks flowing, and even split our tab 8 ways without any hesitation."

  • "Fantastic Food They have the best steaks in the city and the other options like the 16oz. Pork Chop are simply outstanding."

  • "This restaurant is truly an upscale restaurant must try food is amazing,I've tried lots of steak houses but this top them all."

  • "Bar service was very good! Servers were fun and interactive as well as efficient. Moving to a table was a different story. Service slowed to a crawl, with the exception of our water server. The manager had a "reserved" table for four of his friends that was obviously much more important than the four of us!"

  • "My wife & I went there Saturday evening for dinner. Several items on the menu looked great and I had trouble deciding. My wife went with the Rack of Lamb and I decided to go with one of the featured items of the night, the Dry-Rubbed Kansas City Strip. Best steak I have ever had, period. It was cooked perfectly (I chose Medium). It was thick, huge, tender, juicy. Everything you could hope for in a steak. My wife was blown away by the lamb, as well. The glazed carrot was very tasty (and the size of a small baseball bat, too!). We did not take the time to get any of the desserts on this trip (which was a bummer). However, that gives another good excuse to go back to Bob's again! I HIGHLY recommend Bob's Steak and Chop House - Austin."

  • "Service was great. Food was good, but not remarkable - plenty of other places in Austin have comparable or better food at this price point. Ruth's Chris is better and about the same price, with less noise."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Delivered incorrect appetizer, which was corrected. My wife's medium steak was cooked exactly the same as my medium rare. A little understaffed the night we were there. Otherwise, pretty good."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Bob's is a sure bet on reliable quality and service. Every meal I have eaten there has been outstanding and staff is attentive. The mac and cheese (the best in town), garlic mash potato and filet is my favorite...fantastic. Great for out of town guests and special occasions as well. LOVE this place! 5 stars!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I have been to Bob's before and the food was excellent and cooked perfectly. My husband and I had to send both of our plates back for the steak to be cooked more. They were completely uncooked in the center and we asked for medium. The service was a little slow and off as well."

  • "this is a real nice place to take your adult family for special occasions . I 've eaten at all the steak houses across the country and this is right up there with all of them . The steak was cooked correctly and the taste was even a cut above some of the other national top flight steak houses. Service was good."

  • "Went to Bob's on a business dinner. Service was great. The food was amazing. I got the Ahi Tuna steak and it was incredible. My associate got the bone in Rib-eye. Talk about buyer's remorse...he gave me a bite of the steak and it was one of the better bites of steak I've ever had at a steak place. Prices were on par with other upscale steak houses. Drinks were a bit expensive, but delicious. Overall, I would recommend Bob's to anyone!"
