A word from Bob's Steak & Chop House - Austin


Bob's Steak & Chop House is ranked as one of the top steakhouses in the country. USDA Prime Beef seasoned and broiled perfectly. On top of that, the portions are plentiful and there are other options outside of steak. Our service is exceptional and guest oriented, the wine list is extensive, and the drink sizes are generous. If you're not a regular already, come by and let us prove why we're so proud of what we do.

    1.5 hours into the reservation and only received sodas and 2 appetizers. They had a larger party in another room to feed, and so they forgot about our order. The wait staff was nice and apologetic. The manager waived the cost of what we did receive. We still left a tip. It was not their fault that the kitchen was unable to handle all the orders. Being our first experience, it will also probably be our last. It's a shame because the shrimp cocktail and soup we did receive was well made.

    Overall the best experience we have ever had at a high-end steak house! The odd, huge signature carrot can throw you off visually at first, but it is actually very delicious. If you are a lover of Bleu cheese, then the Bleu cheese salad will blow you away. Off course the steaks were par excellence!

    I was disappointed with the 9oz filet mignon as it contained fat. Additionally, the skillet fried potatoes could have been cooked a bit longer.

    Bob’s was… fine for what it was, I guess. By high-end steak house standards, this was good, but nothing stood out. The bread was good. The salads were good. The steaks were good—but a $95 wagyu filet should be better than good. The skillet potatoes were fine. The carrot was just dumb. I have to say that nothing really stood out except the service, and consequently I’m not likely to make it back.

    2 of 3 steaks over cooked. Unacceptable for high end steak house. Requested medium. Came out medium ++. Service is good, but food is the focus. Cook staff wrecked the experience. If 2 of 3 are overcooked, indicates cook staff is not on point. Server offered to correct, but mood already wrecked. Won’t return.

    First time diner....very enjoyable evening. High level of customer service, and the food was delicious. May want to alert diners to the size of the glazed carrot that comes with the steak. I would have declined ordering shareable sides. Otherwise, wonderful experience!

    This was a wonderful birthday celebration. We appreciate that the staff at Bob's took the time to review all the notes we provided. My father was very appreciative of the critical detail of service the team provided and especially ensured his favorite dish was available for the evening. We will definitely be coming back again.

    Had Christmas Eve dinner with my in-laws here and the whole meal was perfect. Great service, wine suggestions, ambiance. Steaks were amazing, lobster Mac and cheese, they had it all. Not like some steakhouses where the menu is better than the actual food, Bob’s was next level!

    We have loved our visits to Bobs each time we go to celebrate a special occasion. The steaks are awesome and the sides are delicious. We started with the crab cake as an appetizer this time and it was delicious. Next visit we will opt to try a dessert. Always love our visits to Bobs!

Ring our first time our waiter William was very helpful in suggesting choices that more than satisfied our tastes. My steak was perfectly cooked and my wife’s seafood dish was memorable.

    Living in North Texas for over 15 years, Bob's Steak and Chop is a go to steak house. The original on Lemon Ave. is almost unbeatable as well as the location opened in Plano only a few years ago. I have never had a bad meal at Bob's...until I went to the Austin location. I will not comment on the cocktail/drink prices (fairly expensive but a 200%+ markup on alcohol is not uncommon) except for the price on whiskey. My goodness, $35 for a glass of Eagle Rare? Again, this is not my gripe. My biggest issue is the steak that I ordered. I was not too hungry and my wife wanted a lobster tail, so we split the surf/turf (6 oz of filet/lobster tail). My wife cut into the steak, looked at me and said "you are not going to like this." The steak was ordered medium-rare. It came out medium-well (no pink). I sent it back as the waiter looked dejected and did not understand why I would send it back. We were told that it would take a few minutes to make right (understood). Roughly 20 minutes later, the waiter brought out two 6oz cuts (nice, but not necessary). The issue at this point (and after waiting 20 minutes) was the steaks came out rare. There was certainly a cold and a rich red center. We politely nodded in begrudged acceptance because we would not be sending another steak back. It was only after we left that my wife commented on the rubbery consistancy of the lobster tail. As my wife and I discussed the experience, we both said we were not mad, just extremely disappointed especially knowing our previous experiences at North Texas Bob's. Our total bill was $200 (each had a glass of wine and a cocktail). We really felt cheated out of a quality dining experience. This location certainly needs to step up their quality control. Maybe they had a new person on steaks, but there is no reason that we should have to send a steak back once (let alone twice) at a steakhouse like Bob's. Certainly a disappointing experience.

    We were disappointed in our experience at Bob’s. We go to the Plano location all the time and this experience is nothing like what we experience in Plano. The steak was over cooked and burnt and the signature carrot was cold and undercooked. It was not busy so we were surprised by the lack of consistency from such a well known steakhouse.
