About Cypress Grill

Spoil yourself with cocktails and Bayou classics at Cypress Grill. This bustling restaurant is famous for its Louisiana-inspired menu which features brunch specials like shrimp and grits and Creole Eggs benedict (made with pasture-raised, certified organic eggs). The menu also lists a fine selection of seafood dishes, including local favorites such as fried catfish, blackened tilapia and shrimp Po-boy. For a little of everything, try the restaurant's special “Troy Favorite Lunch”, which comes with chicken, muffuletta and andouille gumbo.

Cypress Grill is a popular pick with many of the local residents, who visit for the daily happy hour specials and live music (over the weekends). It makes a nice place to enjoy drinks with colleagues or friends. Flip open the drink menu and choose from a tidy list of cocktails, wine, spirits and beers. Cypress Grill is open Mondays to Sundays.

First time at Cypress Grill and we will be back! Clean, friendly service and great food. There were four of us and each had something different and all four loved their meal. Not one issue or complaint! Our server made great recommendations and made it fun to dine at the Cypress Grill.

We were staying at the Hampton Inn and looked for a nearby restaurant for dinner. We love trying small non-chain restaurants and this one was close by. It was a great find! Prices were reasonable , the menu was varied and everything we had was excellent! Would definitely recommend.

We live around the corner, so we tend to go to Cypress quite a bit. The food is consistent and always very good. The Wait staff is excellent. The drinks are very good. I love the rotating monthly menu items (my god, please, PLEASE bring back the stuffed fried pork chop) and i swear that the pancakes are the best i have ever eaten.

My only complaint on the specialty brunch (which is their normal breakfast/brunch foods, but buffet style) is the price. While most folks can't really consume 2 plates of food, 18 bucks a person is a little steep. But all in all, we will easily be back again.

I had NO IDEA this place would be so chaotic on New Year's Eve. It was crazy busy and much louder than normal. I couldn't hear anyone at my table talking. We hurried up and ate to get out of the place.

Other than the noise, the service and food were good! We were in and out pretty quick.

I was sad the crawfish enchiladas weren't on the menu, but that may be a seasonal or lunch thing I suppose.

Cypress Grill is our favorite go-to Cajun bistro in Southwest Austin. We would like to keep the secret, but the word is out! All of the selections are great. Nice selection of wines and craft beers. Use Open Table for easy reservations and avoid the usual wait.

A group of 12 celebrated our son's college graduation and EVERYONE was pleased with their meal! The atmosphere was fun and the waiter couldn't have been better. We had seafood dishes that equaled those in South Louisiana and the pot roast was delicious! We're looking forward to returning to try out other dishes. Thanks Cypress Grill for the perfect evening!!

Cypress Grill is a gem of a restaurant tucked into a strip center in southwest Austin. The Cajun specialties are always prepared with fresh seafood and TLC. The service is attentive and friendly. if you love Cajoun food, you will love Cypress Grill.

I love their nice and spicy infused bloody mary's! The two eggs benedict type dishes are very tasty... especially the one topped by their (very good in it's own right) crawfish etouffee. Service is usually top notch as well

Delicious experience! The poor boys were just like down home in Cajun country, partly because the bread was from New Orleans and the seafood was abundant and well-seasoned. Also, I love the option of getting half a po-boy with the option of any side. We chose a side of gumbo, and it had a rich roux and fair amount of chicken and sausage. Also, my husband loved the shrimp Rockefeller pasta entree. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Overall, we felt like we were in one of our favorite south Louisiana kitchens.

Enjoyed it all except the music was too loud, felt more like a bar than dining experience. The live band had 5 members...a bit much for such a small space.

My husband and I went there for our 28th wedding anniversary. We live on the north side and nothing cajun/creole was open on Sunday. We spent our honeymoon in NO and have been there many, many times since. We wanted to celebrate eating food from NO since we couldn't go this year. Cypress Grill was VERY good and the service was excellent! It is also very reasonably priced. We highly recommend it!

What can I say about Cypress Grill that has not been said before. This little restaurant tucked away in the south end of Austin is just incredible. The food here is good and fair price for what you get. As for selection there is a little for everyone, albeit with New Orleans twist on it. I have gone to this place multiple time and have tried a good portion of their menu and have yet to find a bad dish here. I recommend anyone who wants or likes Louisiana style food to go to this place.

We eat at the Cyprus Grill frequently on Saturday for brunch. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful. I like the crawfish appetizer as well as the sides that go with their brunch. Last evening I had fried eggplant that had a great sauce. My only complaint is that the coffee is too strong.

The four of us were first time visitors and awe stricken by the enticing items on the brunch menu. We kept the server waiting while we made up our minds. Each of us was delighted with our choices, and we will be coming back again and again to work our way through the menu. Our server was patient and attentive. I was the only Louisiana native present, but my friends were quickly won over by the Community Coffee and the Cajun Hash.

My husband and I recently moved to Austin and have been attempting to explore new places. We've hit most of the "Austin staples" so we decided to branch out and see what else was out there. The gumbo and trout were out of this world. Also, if you're looking for an appetizer, I'd suggest the egg rolls--their stuffed with crawfish and cheese, YUM!

our first visit. we love The District, but they were full. staff here seemed like a family and enjoyed working together. our waitress was not friendly, nor tried to sell us on good food. nor was she unfriendly. wife tried crabcakes for appetizer, and i tried the monthly special - stuffed chicken of some sort. Both the crab cake and my chicken looked the same - fresh out after a full bath in a deep frier. Fried until a hardened, dark colored shell. I could only guess food was prepared in morning, dropped in frier, cooked thoroughly and served. My chicken, and whatever was in it, was twice overcooked. The sauce drizzeled on top probably was good, but as I left the fried shell on plate, did not get to taste it. Sauteed green beans were not overly cooked or seasoned, so did get some nourishment via them.

Hate to be harsh, as the place seemed like a nice local spot. But maybe best spot for fried chicken nuggets for kids?
