Diner Reviews
  • "Went with some friends on our anniversary; requested a booth or table against a wall; we were seated in the walkway near Bar Congress (closed at the time). No server appeared or even walked by. After 25+ minutes, we asked the hostess for help. In moments our server arrived, pad in hand: "What can I get you?" No introduction, no welcome, never asked if we had questions, or how everything was. Main courses arrived 10 mins after apps, bad timing. She didn't return or ask about drink seconds for another 15 mins. I'd had dinner the week before at Congress, so I was quite disappointed in the indifferent, borderline hostile service & awkward placement of the table. That said, the food was delicious esp. the salmon, chicken breast, and desserts."

  • "Typical Austin establishment. Don't expect either extreme of spectrum. It was just OK"

  • "Congress burger tasted really homemade, wonderful soft buns, side of handcut potato chips My Chianti was best I've had in an Austin restaurant There were five of us dining and the others in my group also praised their food choices. Waitstaff was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive"

  • "We took our entire family - ages 7 to 67 - for brunch while all were here for the Christmas holidays. Had a great time and everyone really liked the food. Our grandchildren, who are notoriously picky eaters, devoured what they ordered. I would highly recommend this restaurant for brunch, and plan to go back soon to try their dinner menu."

  • "Seven of us dined at Second Bar & Kitchen, and every single one of us was very happy with our food. Service was also very good and unobtrusive. Pretty noisy, but not impossible to carry on a conversation. Their chocolate pot de creme was OUTSTANDING! Pretty unusual to have a party of seven when EVERYBODY was happy!"

  • "Great spot for a late Friday night dinner. Deeeelicious! Get the bacon and eggs and shisito peppers for sure, all of the salads are tremendous and of course the burger is one of the best in Austin."
