The Grille At Rough Hollow reviews from OpenTable diners
  • This place is indeed a hidden
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 12/1/2012
    This place is indeed a hidden a gem. The location is right on the lake with a nice outdoor patio. There is a fireplace outside or you can dine inside. The food was prepared prefectly, from the fish and steak, right down to the vegetables. The server told me about 1/2 off of all bottles of wine under $50. This was an added bonus. It is casual but very nice and the prices were below what I would have expected. Definitely worth the drive from Austin.

    More than two hours for a dinner without deseert or coffee. Service was horible. the food was not great enough to return to such bad service. We saw other reviews on bad service but thought perhaps it was just a bad night and would give it our own chance at service. That did not prove to be worthwhile. We will not return.

    Found The Grille through Trip Advisor while we were staying at Lakeway Resort. So glad we did! The food and the service were excellent. It was a Saturday night and quite busy and the noise level was rather high. It really didn't bother us but if you are looking for a quiet place - this isn't it! Our meals were the best we had during our long weekend on Lake Travis. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/28/2012
    Everything was great overall.. The only negative aspects were: My salad, Cesar, didn't have enough dressing for my taste, and the waitress after the initial serving of the food was not as attentive as I would have liked. I had to wait for some time to get the desert ordered for the birthday girl and a keylime tart. The keylime tart was not what I had hoped for.... it got a thumbs down. I will however come again. This was my party's first visit to your Grill.

    This was our 1st time dining at Rough Hollow and although it was Mother's Day and typically it's going to be busy anywhere, the experience was just ok. The buffet stations seemed a bit cramped. The lids were on the foods to keep them warm, which is good, however there was no place to place them while you get your food. The fruit station and dessert station could have had more options. The food was good, just not great for the price!

    The wait staff needs to slow down as far as wanting to clear empty (or in our case, not even totally empty) plates. Also it would be nicer if managers would wait until there is a lull in the conversation before coming over and interrupting to ask how everything is...

    My husband and I and his mother and aunt dined at The Grille last evening. The food was delicious and very nicely presented. One of the ladies in our party had some dietary restrictions. The server was extremely gracious and incredibly patient. The salads were very fresh and a perfect size, and the scallops served over a vegetable medly were delicious. Prime rib was cooked perfectly and cut like butter. I have been to The Grille serveral times, for lunch and for dinner, and have been seated in the restaurant as well as on the outside deck and have always been pleased with the food and the service.

    Terrible experience for Valentine's Day. Long wait when we arrived, they seated another party in front of us, and when I asked them about it they lied to me. In Austin we're usually spoiled with great service. These people seem to be trying to break that tradition. As for the food, well, I've already forgotton what we had. That's the actual definition of "forgetable", isn't it?

    We had heard great reviews about the restaurant, and the place is great even if hard to find... We ordered beer, appetizers, wine & dinner, and everything was great, except the main courses. Two steaks were ordered, and they were overcooked and served only luke warm. A couple of burgers came overcooked too, and were not very tasty. I would say, have drinks and dine on appetizers, which are great!!

    The reservation was made using OpenTable. The hostess was clueless about our reservation and seemed overwhelmed by a 50 person anniversary party which was set up in the main dining room. The party included a slideshow for the entire restaurant. The filet was excellent, tasty and tender, but the fish entree was just ok. I would recommend the restaurant for steak. Our waiter was very pleasant, attentive, and contributed to our dining experience.

    I visited the restaurant while on a girls' trip to Lakeway. Upon arriving, the hostess read our minds to switch our patio request to be seated inside due to the heat. The ambiance was a mixture of a nice restaurant on one side and a laid back bar with patrons in shorts and swim cover-ups. My friends had the blackened snapper and raved about it. I had the filet oscar and it was delicious as well. We ordered the peaches and creme dessert, but our waitress mentioned that they were in the process of changing the menu so it wasn't available anymore. She did suggest an equally yummy concoction with berries and mascarpone. Before leaving, one of the waiters was kind enough to snap some pictures of the four of us for memories. We had a great time!
