Gorging on Crab legs on Mom's Day
Expensive, kids running around. Festive atmosphere with fun live band. Platters of shrimp, king crab legs, oysters... Was there anything else ? Didn't even look. Carving tables with meat. Sides, salad, pancakes. Passed them by...
Bloody Mary bar. Nice pour of Vodka. Lots of ingredients.
Boiled shrimp were good, not great. Sauce was good. Crab legs were good to very good. A little salty. But Oh so tasty with melted butter. I think between the four of us, we finished off about 12 plates of crab...
We did taste some deserts. Crepe Suzette, excellent. Not stingy on Gran Marnier.
Definitely, worth the $. just once...

The Sunday breakfast buffet was very good, and the breakfast menu selections were also impressive.
We were celebrating a birthday, and the waiter brought a treat with a lit candle on top - very thoughtful.

The whole dining experience was wonderful. We came as a party of six with reservations. The table was beautifully set ahead of time. The service was excellent and the food was superb! We even had a small child in our party, and the waiter accommodated our needs in an excellent manner. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family who will be traveling to the Austin area. Many thanks for making a special evening memorable!

Offers casual dining on the lake
SWB is a nice spot for dining on Lady Bird Lake...good food, great service, nice vista and a short walk to the "bats" at twilight!

Busy day of conferences, seminars, and speakers--SWB was quiet and relaxing.

A window view of Lady Bird Lake, the Congress Avenue Bridge and the famous bats flying by at dusk makes the Hyatt the perfect place for entertaining out-of-town guests.

Food Was Amazing!
We tried this place for our Anniversary and were a little disappointed by the decor when we arrived. The restaurant was almost empty, so we wondered if we'd made a mistake. However, when the food arrived, we were transformed to an exquisite oasis! Scallops for an appetizer were amazing with a touch of watermelon! Our main entrees were unrivaled...I had sirloin and gulf shrimp and he had New York strip. The gulf shrimp were some of the best I've ever had-succulent and buttery. Dessert topped it off with a delicious pecan crusted cheesecake that melted in your mouth.
You would never know this was a hotel restaurant by the fantastic food, so don't be discouraged by the outdated decor.

An unremarkable Hotel restauant
Nothing remarkable here. Just good service and unimaginative food in a hotel restaurant. I wouldn't cross the river for it, but it is convenient and spacious in the Hyatt. This night the server did go an extra mile to find a particular wine for my boss.

good food, excellent staff, great new parking garage, fantastic view of the city in the winter months when trees don't block view!
