    Our family loves coming here for the French fries & the Rueban sandwich. A real treat! This is our 2nd time at this restaurant & will definitely be back. Great for a quick, reliable lunch or dinner with family!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/4/2014
    The good- The onion rings, the dessert donuts The not so good- No silverware on table and not noticed by waitress, no napkins either. High chair had broken straps. Waitress couldn't even muster any enthusiasm for menu when I said I'd never been there before and asked what was good. My Salmon was a small portion on a small plate with a small puddle of sauce..looked lonely..was just ok. Side of jalapeno cornbread in cast iron skillet was overcooked, dry and partially burned and not exciting, I ate very little. Overall experience was not worth a return visit, uninspired and service lacking.

    I used to frequent Hyde Park Bar and Grill but probably won't be going back there. The menu is very selective and most of the items that made the restaurant unique and delicious are gone. They hired a new chef a couple weeks ago and he seems to have a new way for everything. The prices were far too high for what tasted like heated up food. Also, you can't have "bar" in the name of your restaurant without having a choice of liquors... I was disappointed to see the quality here diminish.

    Overall, I was not disappointed with the food, service or the ambiance for our art group's appreciation holiday dinner. Everyone was pleased with the selection of wine, the food and the wonderful spot we were in for a more semi private gathering. We started out with some appetizers although for a party of 8, the portions for the appetizers were small and had to order more, it was good to have. Everyone seemed to be enticed by the fish tacos and said they had more than enough, I was pleased that everyone enjoyed the experience.

    The food is always great here. We've often come for lunch and we came for dinner this time. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. We had a lovely table by the window. The only thing we didn't like was how close the tables were. The conversation at the table next to us was loud and annoying but that's not the restaurant's fault.

    We were having a family get together and with 11 of us it worked out perfectly. They set up our table in a separate little alcove and it couldn't have been better. We have 3 little boys in our family and they don't always stay seated so it was absolutely perfect. Our waiter was really good and the food was terrific as always!!

  • Second Home
    Albert
    Dined on 8/17/2013
    Austin is my second home as I visit the city several times a year. This is the first visit to Hyde Park Grill and I really enjoyed it, though I think it is a little pricey on some of its entree menu items. The turkey burgers were excellent, and the fries out of this world. The mixed green salad was fresh and the ranch dressing very tasty. I would recommend Hyde Park to friends. Certainly, my next trip will require a Hyde Park turkey burger, fries, and perhaps a few additional menu items to share from the entree selection.

    This was my second time to dine but I brought 3 first-timers with me. Ambiance is like a "nicer" Kerbey Lane...feels sorta diner/Luby-ish in it's set up, carpeting and overall appearance. All the food we had was GREAT and I will go back, but our server, who appeared to only be waiting on 3 tables, might as well have been out taking smoke breaks for as many times as he was missing and not present. Even after he brought the check, our tab must have sat ready to process for more than 10 minutes. Server was a disappointment from the first hello.

    We went to have dinner and see the band Trio Verde. Food and music were excellent. However, our server could have been more attentive. I ordered a martini to consume prior to eating, but it didn't arrive at the table until after the meal arrived. And we didn't receive much attention after the meal arrived.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/31/2013
    I have been dining at Hyde Park for over 7 years, and had always considered it a restaurant with delicious food, generous portions, and affordable prices. However, the restaurant's menu has undergone a huge make-over, and I was not happy with all the new changes. The portions are now much,much smaller. Most plates do not include sides anymore, and now you have to pay extra for them. We were used to ordering a large order of fries for our entire table, and now the "large" order barely feeds 3 people. I was used to making reservations there often for birthdays and other special events, but I don't think I will be doing that anymore...

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 4/25/2013
    This was our first visit since they had new menus. Of course, as usual, new menus often mean higher prices. The chuck hamburger had gone up a dollar ($8) and still did not include French fries. The fries were served in a little basket which was a smaller serving than before. Overall, I'm afraid that our favorite comfort food restaurant did not help itself with its changes.

    The service this visit was a little spotty compared to other times I've visited. It may have been because of it being a holiday. It also would have been nice to have some special Easter offering. As always the food was spectacular.

    I have been to the original Hyde Park many years ago. I wanted to try this one and it turned out to be different but good. Our server was great considering how very busy they were. He didn't even mind giving us separate checks. The food was just as excellent as always. We were a group of five but could all converse even with our table right by the bar. Check it out--you will enjoy it.

    Everything about Hyde Park Grill could be best described, in my opinion, as average. By this I mean that the food was good, but not exceptional or memorable. The service was fine, but not exceptional. The ambiance was what you would expect. No negatives, just nothing that says "can't wait to eat there again." I would eat there again if it was convenient or if a friend wanted to meet me there, but there are other places I would rather go.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/28/2012
    Booked a reservation online to listen to live music while dining. When we got there, we were surprised to find the band setting up outside. We asked if we could sit outside near a space heater but were told that there was no fuel for the heaters. We asked if we would be able to hear the band over the inside speakers but were told no. No apologies were made. Disappointed, we ate dinner inside anyway. Crispy chicken wings, when they arrived, were actually drums, were not crispy and had very little flavor. The waiter said they didn't have wings and offered no recourse. The pulled pork over the mac and cheese had no flavor at all. The bill was expensive and we got mediocre food and no live music. We won't be going back.

    The food is good at dinner as well as lunch. The menu variety allows for everyone in the group to fine something that matches their taste and dietary guidelines. The wine, beer and mixed drink selection also suited a group with varying tastes. the semi-private area was nice for a small group and helped somewhat to shield the group from the noise level from the rest of the restaurant.

    I went here with a group, and we were treated to excellent service by our waiter, who was attentive at the right times and careful not to interrupt conversation. The food was great--there are a lot of very tempting comfort dishes on the menu, but if you're watching your calories they also have some wonderful salads and soups. It wasn't super noisy but not super quiet either, so we felt comfortable having conversations that weren't overheard well but also weren't annoying to fellow diners. All in all, an excellent experience. I will definitely be back!

    Went to Hyde Park Bar & Grill- Westgate for my birthday dinner. I had made reservations prior, so that helped with getting the table for 8 that my party consisted of. We were seated on time. The waiter showed up right away, took everyone's drink orders, and asked if we wanted appetizers. Drinks showed up pretty soon after ordering. Then orders were taken for dinner. I ordered the basil grilled chicken with wild rice pilaf and spice roasted sweet potatoes. My boyfriend ordered the chicken fried steak with fries and steamed broccoli. My sisters had the pork roast shephards pie and grilled salmon. Their boyfriends had the potato-crusted tilapia and chicken fried chicken. Overall, everyone was pleased with their meals. Waiter had BAD BAD breath

    My husband and I love Hyde Park Bar and Grill. They have wonderful comfort food and also a few different items like chinese stir fry and pasta dishes. The special was an Indian dish that sounded amazing but I opted for comfort food getting meatloaf, collard greens cooked with bacon and green chile cheese mashed potatoes. SO GOOD! My husband got the horshoe because he saw it on man vs food and he ate the whole thing. My cocktail was also great.

    Dependable, consistent, comfortable -- all adjectives that have described HPG for the twenty five years I've been enjoying their food. Now made even better by being twenty minutes closer to my house! Fantastic wine list, with some finds. Only downside is a common Austin complaint -- service is a little too "slacker-like". Other than that, a good friend that you always enjoying seeing.

  • Blackened catfish uncommonly spicy
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/18/2011
    My wife enjoyed her vegetable plate. However, my "blackened Cajun-style catfish" was almost uneatable. It appeared and tasted as though perfectly good slices of farm-raised catfish had been smothered in chile powder and thrown into frying pan. I am from Louisiana, of Cajun background. Believe me, this is NOT the way I have experienced (much less, tasted) so-called "blackened" fish before. Rather than the expected thinly encrusted, crispy outer surface of peppery seasoning, what I encountered was a thick covering of mushy red paste that was way too spicy--impossible to eat without burning lips and enduring indigestion for hours. I can not imagine this particular dish pleasing many customers; will be last time I order this dish from HPB
