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.

  • "From the moment we arrive until we left, the evening was perfect. The waiter, Clarence, was friendly and very helpful. The food, both fish and steak, was cooked perfection. The wine list was extensive. We will definitely return for another wonderful evening. This restaurant is a gem."

  • "Food and service were exceptional. Our waiter did a great job recommending dishes to go with our diners' interests. The filet was one of the 2 best I have ever had."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The Prime Rib Eye was literally the best I have ever had. The bone in prime was was perfectly cooked, medium rare, and beautifully presented. Lobester bisque was better than any I've had in New England. Very pricey but made for a special occasion."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The service and ambience was excellent, as good as any place in Austin. Very disappointed with my steak, 9 oz. filet. Perhaps my expectations were too high. Slightly undercooked and not as tender as a filet should be. Crab cake appetizer was excellent."

  • "After dinner be sure to make your way to the Outdoor Roof Top Bar Area - Great views of the Austin Skyline"

  • "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."

  • "Went to Bobs to celebrate my 50th Birthday with the expectation that it would be an opportunity for my wife and I to kick back and have a low key evening to spend some time together. Though the service was prompt and our waiter was very proficient in managing the table... The kitchen went south on our order. My wife's order came out fine... mine was clearly somebody else's plate. When I asked the waiter what he submitted on the ticket.. his order was right... the kitchen just got it wrong. Unfortunately when they re-fired my steak... they did it hastily; the steak didn't have ample time to rest and it being a NY Strip, it bled out when I cut into it and it came out much tougher than I suspect they would have hoped. Yea well..."

  • "I know this restaurant has been in Austin for a few years, but it was just this week that I had an opportunity to go there. Reservations were easy - and I even got an advance call to find out exactly what I was looking for. They kept my reservation downstairs in the event the rooftop bar was full. I arrived early and found a great table on the rooftop where they serve a full meal. While they mixed up the order of my dining companion, two people came to our table and apologized, offering a round of drinks for the inconvenience. The Dirty Bob Martini with blue cheese olives was fantastic. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly. I've been looking for a new place to go for a happy hour that might also turn into a dinner and this is it!"

  • "Service very, very slow, wine order mixed up with another table, wrong salads brought out, entres warm at best, took waiter over five minutes to bring toppings for baked potato, steak extremely salty, took valet 15 minutes to get car and we were only ones waiting. At these prices, service and food should be much better. Going back to Eddie V's next time"

  • "Once again, Bob's has delivered! We dined there last night and thoroughly enjoyed the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer along with filet, baked potato, wedge salad (yum!) and of course, the wonderful glazed carrot. Nick, our waiter worked his magic and made our evening so special. Thanks!"

  • "My friend and I were staying at the W Hotel last week on our visit to Austin. My friend was visiting from DC and wanted a "good Texas steak" so we decided to make an early reservation for Bob's, which is right across the street from the hotel. We sat at the bar and were blown away with the attentive service we received from Sean, the gentlemen tending bar that evening. Cliff, the sommelier, was spot-on with his description of the wine we ultimately chose. Only regret of te trip is not making it back for a second dinner during our stay in Austin."

  • "I knew we made the right choice for a romantic evening away from the kids when we entered the restaurant, and were promptly led to a nice booth away from the door, within view of the bar. The old flags everywhere are very cool. The table-side pickles and sweet peppers are quite nice touches. We ordered the lobster bisque, the tomahawk, and the lobster & shrimp mac, latter two both excellent and available as specials. The bisque was the best of this variety I've experience - very creamy and rich, and the lobster still sung with some still juicy pieces floating a midst the creamy goodness. The steak was cooked well, and the aged "wagyu" flavor was pronounced. The service was exception and the server knew everything inside and out."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This was our first time to Bob's but certainly not our last. They seated us in a cozy corner booth. It felt very private. The service was great. Very attentive and accommodating. Our wedge salads were so fresh and tasty. They offered to split the 16 oz Filet Mignon for us since we like our meat prepared differently and they were PERFECTION! The asparagus were tender and the green beans were cooked with a glaze unlike we ever had before. (Our waiter even offered to get the recipe for us. How cool is that?) Sooo good with every course. Can't wait to go back."

  • "I reserved the 5:00 slot for an early romantic Independence Day dinner with my husband. Although we were the only ones there our waiter Marc was just great, very pleasant and knowledgable of the menu and very attentive but not overly attentive. We were able to take our time and not fill rushed when the evening guest started arriving. The Porter House Steak & Chops were seasoned very well and just delicious. We are already planning our next visit (next month 😋)."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We ordered the tomahawk steak and split it between the two of us, beautiful steak, so tasty. Our service was sensational and the wine list was big, had many selections of Port which is not common. We ordered the key lime pie and it was delectably tangy."

  • "I was referred to Bobs by a friend for the good food and the ambiance and must say I wasn't disappointed. The inside dinning looked very romantic, we ate on the rooftop overlooking downtown. Each of us enjoyed our appetizer & meals, the pork chop and the steak were tender and seasoned to perfection. Our waitress Whitley was very attentive. I have nothing but good things to say."

  • "From the moment we walked they the door we knew we found a gem. The hostest we waiting to open the door and guided us to a dimly lit table. Perfect to set the romantic mood! The fresh bread was amazing and all drinks are a double, "bobs standard"! Our wait or Sean was very attentive and hilarious! Before our meal arrived we were greeted and thanked by the manager for our visit. Nice touch! We order the specials which were bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with montery Jack cheese and a 28 oz tomahawk steak. I drooled when both items arrived.... Hands down the steak was the best I've ever had, seriously!! The taste, the texture and it was cooked to perfection!! It wasn't a cheap meal but was by far worth every calorie and penny!!!"

Our server Jennifer, was also wonderful! She was very accommodating and offered to split our checks which was very convenient for us. I will definitely recommend Bob's Steak and Chophouse to everyone and especially Jennifer! "

  • "The filet bone-in was exceptional! It was by far the best steak that I have ever eaten. Do also try the shrimp appetizer (shrimp is prepared three different ways). It was delicious! The service was excellent as well. They featured a bottle of Nickel Nickel Cabernet at a much reduced price, which made the meal that more amazing! A great steak, wine and service! "

  • "The service was exceptional from the moment we stepped through the front door; the hostess acknowledged my birthday as did the waitress as soon as we set down and it only got better. Excellent dining from the "to die for" lobster appetizer to the mouth-watering ribeye (bone-in) and divine crab cakes to the fabulous key lime pie dessert (which was the treat of Bob's); not to mention the "best we have had in quite some time" lemon drops - all of the above made my birthday celebration a night to remember."

  • "Loved the service. The waiter was very attentive and helpful. The restaurant could be loud at times and was disappointed that family with small children was there as it reminded me of family restaurant environment. I am a family person but believe in having some places serve adults exclusively. The reality is that when it comes to dress code there is not one. Coming from a large city to Austin(well Austin is not small) I am surprised at how laid back of a dress code exists in this part of the country. Shirts and shoes will get you in and again would not mind if I were not on a date for a special occasion. You want to feel in the mood but having children and some grown ups dressed like children subtracted from the experience"

  • "First time there and this is definitely a steakhouse I'll go back to. Our server was attentive, friendly and exceptionally candid in responding to our questions, trying to get us the best dining experience possible. My steak was done perfectly, my companion raved about the duck. And the lobster bisque beforehand was some of the best I've ever had."

  • "Prior to dinner we enjoyed drinks at the patio bar upstairs. Great environment with great cocktails. You can actually eat outside as well if you like. Then we headed downstairs for dinner. Our waiter was outstanding. He was helpful, knowledgable about the menu, not pushy and had a great attitude. The food was great. I'm not a huge steak person so I stuck to the sides which I thought were typical steak house sides but yummy nonetheless. The carrot and green beans were definitely my favorites. We had a group of 7 and 3 sides was more than enough for all. I did start with the chop salad and the crab cake and loved them. Bob's is unique in that each steak comes with a potato side and their signature carrot. Will be back for sure! "
