Great delicious pizza and beer. Perfectcplace for outdoor and indoor eating. Pet friendly!
Love this place. It’s been a haven during covid where they actually seem to take social distancing seriously. Unfortunately, this time seems like they’re lapsing a bit outdoors. Long lines and lots of people at tables. At least they still take reservations for those of us who don’t want to be in crowds but want to resume some casual normalcy occasionally.
Fun place to be outside and enjoy the summer. We enjoyed it.
Loved the food and felt very safe. Employees were all very nice and helpful
Very clean and socially distanced appropriately
Love this place! Excellent Kolsch. Beautiful ambiance. Highly recommend the chicken sandwich and potatoes.
Not the greatest selection of beers, but enough to keep us happy on a hot Saturday afternoon. A little more AC would have been nice, but an excellent well priced pizza and all the Covid-19 precautions in place. Will be back for sure.
First time trying this place out. The ambiance was great! It has a homey backyard feel.
Maybe it's covid - but the staff just seemed not to jazzed about being there. I felt like I was inconveniencing them when ordering food. Which wasn't great, but not bad. It's just pizza & beer -- middle of the road -- but done up in a huge, showy space.
The appetizers were cold food was great the beer 👍
cool space and good beer/cocktails, did a good job accommodating safe practices during covid-19.
Overall, a great experience. Service, food and environment was spectacular! We will be back soon, especially when the weather gets a little cooler.
Great place to get out of the house! Very open and safe 🤗
Honestly our first time to a resultant since early March. I chose central machine works because of its open air and good spacing from the pics and I was not disappointed! Ambience was great, distancing and policy enforcement was great, food was great, beer was great, company was great. Well done!
Lovely open-air environment with delicious burgers and beer. Great for a group hangout, and they have a very safe COVID protocol!
I would love more vegetarian options!
Awesome decor in an old warehouse! Felt well organized and safe. Food was delicious and the beer was delicious. Will be back again ASAP!
we came for the beer and the atmosphere. overall great. dog friendly.
For our 1st time to Austin this place was very nice.
We had a fabulous time! The tables were set up apart and it was perfect! The beers are always very tasty and the cocktails are spot on. The blackberry smash was MMMM!! If you're looking for a great atmosphere with awesome drinks and food and super fantastic staff, this is the place for you!!
Birthday with two friends
Especially under the current circumstances we were impressed with the service, the ease and flow of ordering etc. The space itself is fantastic. While the beers are solid they aren't stupendous. But still very good indeed and worth the trip. The pretzel was really good. The beer cheese had a great flavor but was a little on the runny side.
If I were selfish, I wouldn’t post this. I almost don’t want to...
This is the best place I’ve been to in Austin in forever and set up absolutely perfectly for COVID.
One of our favorite drink spots! Great environment, fun new East side experience!
Great way to get out of the house safely during COVID
Amazing, my favorite place before covid and now feel great going there post covid! Sit outside and feel super confident given their safety protocols, but also still feels energetic!
Nice place, very spread out. Great beer! Definitely going back.
Awesome time, very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend!
Love this place!. Great ambiance, super clean and neat.
We really enjoyed the experience and will be back. We were there shortly after the new mask enforcement and some people were not wearing masks as they walked about. However, an employee was walking around asking them to don their mask. Being in the vulnerable group, really appreciate everyone helping to protect themselves and others and do whatever it takes to keep businesses such as this one open!
Love this place. Good beer. Good food. Great place!
I was happy to hear Central Machine was open again after the pandemic and they are doing things right. We made a reservation for a party of 6, and had ample space to our selves. The seating was comfortable, the drinks and food were delicious (we ordered a pizza). It was so nice to be able to feel a bit of normalcy again.
Thank you for following really great sanitation procedures and maintaining the social distance guidelines as suggested. We will definitely be back, I can't wait to try some of the other items on your menu.
The bartender was fantastic and our food was excellent! We ordered the cauliflower crust pizza which has a crispy crust and great flavor. I love the space at Central Machine Works but sitting inside was somewhat uncomfortable. Even with fans and the doors open it feels like there is very little air movement. We asked the hostess to sit us in the aisle so that we could have full advantage of the slight breeze coming from the open doors and it was still really hot.
I made a reservation and get there and they said they can seat us at a table but there’s another reservation coming in an hour so we would have to get up even though I made a reservation as well. Staff was not welcoming
Need more fans or something way to hot for summertime!!
Great place, food and service. Would definitely recommend checking it out!
