About

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.

We have dined at Cypress Grill many times over the years. We've never been disappointed. This week was the exception. We arrived exactly at the time of our reservation. The young man who greeted us seemed a little confused. He told us that we would have to wait awhile to be seated. This is the exact same thing he told other diners who arrived without reservations. This has never happened to us before. We waited about 15 minutes and were seated. This is exactly the way diners without reservations were treated. I hope this was a one off for that night. If it continues, we'll rethink dining at one of our favorite restaurants in Austin.

We especially like bringing our own fine wine and paying only a modest corking fee. Rebecca is an amazing server!

Cypress Grill has a nice selection of main courses and appetizers, some of which are at special prices during Happy Hour. We went to celebrate my wife's birthday and had not needed the reservation, but the place filled up quickly after, about, 6:30 p.m. so we were glad we had made the reservation anyway. The cocktails were delicious, the main course was excellent, the desert was well worth it.

Cypress Grill is my go-to place for all kinds of events. From a date night with my spouse, to a gathering of family or friends, we are always treated well. The waitstaff, bartenders, hosts, and kitchen all work together to make the dining experience great. Laissez les bons temps rouler - EVERY DAY!

Service was prompt, waitperson courteous and friendly. I loved the grilled trout with menuiere sauce, sauteed squash dish and garlic mashed. We arrived during happy hour so I also enjoyed a half price mojito which was very nice. However, my son was not happy with his chicken fried ribeye. He said it was thin and not good quality.

Everyone enjoyed their food and plan on returning. I was a little disappointed that we arrived and the two different couples in front of us who were walk-ins were seated at tables and then when I indicated we had reservations, we were told all the tables were now taken. We had to wait a bit for someone to leave in order to be seated.

This is a very nice restaurant, and a Louisiana style cuisine, which is executes very well. However like most such food, avoid the fried stuff. The host was super friendly.

We love Cypress Grill. We have a Saturday Breakfast Club that gathers there, and we have for years. The Brunch is wonderful as are their entries . It is a great neighborhood restaurant. The bar is a fun place to visit and watch sports.

We have eaten at Cyrpus Grill several times and find it excellent every time we go. We do not live in Austin so we can only go when we are in town, but I would recommend it to anyone who likes Cajun food.

I just love this place! I was worried because it was on such a busy street, but parking was easy, the other diners were fun and diverse, and the food was terrific. The owner, Dave, was there and attentive, but not intrusive.

We will definitely come back.

Very good food! Includes excellent fried shrimp platter, French fries, and Cole slaw. Service was very good and a mistake in delivering my order of a side was corrected immediately. A bit noisy with children so recommend going later in the evening for dinner.

Good go to local food place. Usually noisy though this visit wasn't overly so. Great variety on the menu well prepared. Service staff was different than past few time we visited and we had to request things (such as remoulade sauce for shrimp po'boy) that usually would be an upfront option. It took 2 requests to finally have it brought. Otherwise, food and service great as usual!

Went to Cypress Grill based on a recommendation from a Louisiana native who knows cajun cooking. We were not disappointed -- blackened salmon followed by cobbler and ice cream was outstanding. Went on a Friday evening -- I recommend using on-line to reserve a table. Wait staff (Jersey) was attentive and engaging. Will definitely go back.

Cypress Grill has been a favorite for a long time. We drive from downtown to this wonderful neighborhood restaurant. The food is always done very well the managements is always on their game. The fish is always prepared very well and the Creole influence of the cuisine makes it a winner every time!
