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.

    As a beef cattle farmer from the state of Kentucky I can attest to the quality of the food being served at Bob's. My bone in ribeye was perfectly cooked, the glazed carrot was sweet and savory and side dish of smashed potatoes was just as good. Highly recommended from someone who knows good steaks!!

    Our dining experience at Bob's Chop House in Austin was everything we expected it to be! I loved the sophisticated, yet warm atmosphere, the waitstaff was very attentive, the food, elegant and simple- absolutely delicious. The stars of the show at Bob's are their steaks--my 9 oz filet was one of the tastiest and tenderest I've had in my life. We were too full for dessert, but overall a very enjoyable dinner. We plan to return soon!

    Our meal was prepared as ordered at each course and our waiter took the time to discuss each of our dinner choices. We both had a wedge salad to start our meal and it was a fresh taste of flavors. Just before we received our salads, a round loaf of bread was bought to our table and it was fresh baked with a plate of cold butter, that melted on our slices of bread. Our steaks and choice of potato were a treat to our taste buds, no additional sauces were needed to enhance the built in flavor of our steaks. I highly recommend a visit to Bob's Steak and Chop House in Austin to experience their distinguished customer service.

    From the moment we arrived we were treated very well. The food was great and the service we received from Clarence outside on the upper deck patio was amazing. The bacon wrapped shrimp was a highlight. The portions are large. The sides were just ok however the main dish was excellent. I didn't really care for the large carrot on the plate but it was ok. Drinks were fabulious. They even gave us a signed card congratulating us on our engagement. If we ever go back to Austin we will go back to this great find.

    Fabulous cigar selection and I wanted to buy the humidor. I had great fun entering the side door that was a stainless steel elevator door with no sign. That was a fabulous touch as it felt secretive and special. The outdoor level on top was gorgeous with comfortable seating and bar. The wines and the dinner was spot on. The timing was also perfectly delivered. Austin was our server and he had knowledge of all things offered. He was easy to talk to and it never felt "stuffy." Bob's is lucky to have him for sure. Incredible steaks and more.

    We ate here early in the evening, so it wasn't very crowded. Our waitress was so pleasant, it would have been a great experience even if we didn't eat. However we did eat and the food was GREAT. Best steak I have had in years, and I eat a lot of steaks. Wish we had more time to dine, we were on a schedule to attend a concert later that evening.

    This was our first visit to Bob's but it definitely won't be the last! The food was all outstanding & our server Ish was the absolute best. The drinks were perfectly made, the wine they were featuring was a very good Cab at a reasonable price & the fresh, hot bread from New World Bakery was a great start to our meal. We split the double veal chop & the filet medallions with lobster tail and all were superb. This place is definitely not cheap, but well worth it.

    You think a place named so simple or whatever your impression of the name "Bobs" wouldn't be as good as it is. Or maybe you think - "why even bother going in" If you don't go in you miss THE BEST filet in Austin. Plus you and your date or group will love the carrots and bartender Shawn is The real deal.

    My boyfriend and I came here for a quiet, romantic dinner, and it was a wonderful experience! The drinks were stiff, the filet mignon was tender (and out of this world), and the service was beyond exceptional. We requested Ish Cavazos, and we could not have asked for a better waiter. He was very attentive, warm, and an absolute natural at delivering his knowledge of the menus. What a great place! We will definitely be coming back.

    Dined on 9/11/2014
    I would consider myself a big foodie, with major emphasis on great steak. I've had great $10 steaks and I've had great $100 steaks. I read a TON of reviews and was really looking forward to enjoying my first "Texas" steak. My meal at Bob's was VERY disappointing. My "prime" rib eye was grisly, with huge chunks of fat taking up half the steak and hardly any of it was marbled throughout. My roasted potatoes were only half cooked, and tasted like re-heated microwaved potatoes. And the "vegetable" was just a giant impenetrable carrot dropped on the center of the plate. At $57.00 for the meal, I feel like I was robbed. The service was great, but I don't go out to eat for great service. I will NOT be returning.

    Although our waiter was knowledgeable he was not quite up to par compared to others at high end Austin restaurants. It was more his personality or lack thereof that made for less than stellar service. My steak, the small filet, was cooked perfectly but honestly that humongous carrot in the middle of the plate was less than appetizing. This place is good for business people but not really a place I would return to with a date or for a special occasion.

    The steak was outstanding, excellent cut, very good rub, perfectly cooked(Delicious taste, Char-ed, but not burned, on the outside, juicy and very soft in the inside, and little fat; Perfect!! Wine selection is great from every part of the world, averaging $80-$1000 a bottle. However, we were very disappointed with our selection of the Spanish Cabernet Sauvignon. Caesar salad and side of Spinach were ok. The service was impeccable and top notch. Perfect!! Ambiance is class, medium lighting, warm, quiet. Very good!

    The food was excellent but very pricey. Our waiter was awesome and very attentive - water was refilled with every sip. I was disappointed with the wine list. Cheap wines (in my home state) were at least $99. If you want a good wine, expect to pay! They even charged for parking... enjoyable except for the price.

    My wife and I sat on the roof Saturday night for her 31st birthday. We shared a few drinks prior to our dinner, and enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the rooftop seating. Our drinks were prepared perfectly, and our server was exceptionally attentive, despite being busy. Our steaks were the absolute picture of perfection. I cannot exclaim enough how delicious they were. The mac and cheese, as well as the smashed potatoes were perfect side dishes while enjoying the exceptional crust seared on the steaks. I'd refer anyone who comes to Austin, or is just looking for a great dinner to make this a must do on their food list.

    This particular visit mirrors my first, except it was for my birthday and I was surrounded by family and dined indoors. The hostess and FoH manager were courteous as expected, and said that whether at the bar or upstairs, they would come get us when our table was ready (I made reservations but the table before us was taking longer than expected - we were early so it was a non-issue). In about 15 minutes, long enough to enjoy a nice drink under the misters upstairs, our table was ready. Our waiter, Christian, was not only knowledgeable, but quirky, and very on point. The meal was fantastic, the drinks were well made, and the ambience was great. If you're wanting to try something new and enjoy steak (or surf), then stop by Bob's.
