I made a reservation for a date night with my wife. We arrived promptly at 6:30, a hostess quickly escorted us to our seats. The waiter was polite and did a great job explaining the specials of the day. The drinks arrived quickly and the bartender is definitely a professional. Dinner was exceptional! The steak was done to perfection, as was the asparagus and potatoes. We opted for cream brûlée as desert. Again our expectations were surpassed. Overall this was a wonderful avenue to take your bride too. Great staff, amazing food and a pretty cool atmosphere. More

Steakhouse | College Station, College Station / Bryan

This was our first visit to The Republic after 5 years of being in College Station. I am sorry we have waited that long! The food was straight forward and delicious, which was exactly what we were looking for. Our waitress, Tessa, answered every question with knowledge and a pleasant attitude. We were there for our wedding anniversary and will definitely be back. More

Lunch reservations after Aggie Ring Day...we were seated promptly even though we were a little early. Our server was gracious and knowledgeable about the menu and wines. She was very attentive and congratulated my son multiple times for his special day. We enjoyed bread and the Texas cheese tray before our food arrived. Everything was delicious...lamb chops, pastas, desserts! We will definitely return. Thank you for helping to make our family event memorable! More

The staff were welcoming, helpful & kind. The food was great and tasted fresh. We started with the Admiral's Crabcakes, which were divine. Then moved on to the Norwegian Salmon & the Grouper Blanco with salads and some creamy tomato bisque soup. Then to top that off we had the Ricotta smooth tasting Cheesecake. A memorable dinning experience and sure to be back soon. More
