Interesting menu with different spins on traditional comfort food favorites. Southern meets Texas Southwestern (hatch chiles are used in several dishes). Family friendly atmosphere. Bar has extensive whiskey selection, but wine list could offer more options.

Fun, cozy casual venue. Excellent service. Great menu. Value-filled happy hour. We will definitely use this place again as our go-to mid-way venue for traveling from Katy, to dine with our Woodlands friends!

Food, hostess and wait staff were very good. Manager (or owner) that was onsite was rude to kids and families playing with football/soccer balls outside. If you want to keep customers, work on your communication skills. You can get your message across without bullying both your customers and your wait staff. I saw other comments online about manager so this seems to be his MO. Will not recommend restaurant to others based solely on manager's behavior.

This restaurant was recommended to me by open table and I made a reservation through them for Valentines Day. My fiancé and I didn’t want anything super extravagant in ambiance or price and this restaurant stated that it was $30 and under so we were looking forward to something new and the pictures looked great. The place itself was very cute they have a nice patio, it’s a very warm rustic ambiance. The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable the menu was amazing everything read delicious. We ordered the brisket enchiladas and the fish tacos with rice black beans and grits for our sides. Everything was absolutely delicious. We left with an $80 bill but had 4 cocktails so I thought it was money and time well spent. We were too full for dessert but We will definitely be back to have some bread pudding on the patio next time.

Followed up twice to reserve their wine room and was told they would hold this room for us. Arrived and room was already taken, so had to wait an hour at a regular table. Thankfully the manager comped our drinks and appetizers. The waitress (Hope) was awesome though and really made the night for us go well overall.

Reservation was for a standard table but was greeted promptly and taken to a high top table. Service was great as all questions regarding the menu were answered. Was disappointed that everyone at the table had to order the special or none at all. You only had a choice between 2 entrees so we picked one of each. Food came out late and overcooked. Replacement was a little closer to “as ordered” but for $40 each was expecting better. Management realized falling short and took care of us. Drinks, other than a hot beer initially served, appetizers, and dessert were all very good.

We had a birthday gathering and requested a table in view of the Astros game. The staff was extremely accommodating--everything was ready when we got there. The service was stellar--we were helped quickly, never lacked for a water refill, food came quickly and correctly. We stayed for over two hours, but they never seemed impatient with us. It was a fantastic evening!

Have always loved this restaurant... took out of town guest for Sunday brunch. Very disappointed in the food. Our waiter Patrick was fantastic. The fruit sorbet and fruit was a disappointment... one raspberry on top😫
Gravy was not up to par and biscuits were cold. Have you change Cook’s. Hope this was just a off day.

Even thou we had a seven pm reservation for a table for two we ended up sitting at the bar. The wife has short legs so sometimes this isn’t possible due to the stools. Luckily it worked out & we enjoyed our food so will “BE BACK”. Sorry bad pun. By the way it was are 1sts time there.

We went to Frio Grill for the first time on Father’s Day and were all impressed. The four of us each liked our orders, the service was good and we liked the atmosphere. Will go back soon!

Table was not ready upon arrival. Got us seated in 5-10 minutes. Made reservation for Brunch. Waited 30 minutes for drinks. Another 30-45 for food from there (1-1 hour 15 minutes from time we sat). Forgot multiple items, food all in all was pretty good but the service was not. Did not offer to take $$ off our bill for the wait or inconvenience. Did not offer free dessert or some consultation. Overall disappointed in the experience.

Bad food tonight. Fish tacos were simply a large piece of fish thrown on a tortilla and it wasn’t prepared well with very little seasoning. Disappointing but enjoyed our time at the barn afterwards.

This is a super neat place with really great food. We went on a night that had live entertainment and the band was set up outdoors. The noise level was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for anything better for a first time visit. I would really like to send out a thanks to the Steven Marshall band “Be Cool”.

The 3 piece band on Friday night was so so good, we just wished they would have turned the volume down a couple of notches. We weren’t able to hold a conversation while sitting outside watching the kids play because it was so incredibly loud. Everything else was 100! :)

We had reservations on Easter, and it was never communicated that we would we sitting outside at a picnic table! We were all dressed in church clothes. The buffet was out of mostly everything at 2 PM. There was constant food turnover at the buffet, but you literally had to check every five minutes, because as soon as something was brought out, it was gone. Our $250 brunch was a total disappointment. We will never be back for Easter and will not recommend Frio Grill.

We didn’t have a reservation on Easter day, but I could do that on the last minute through Open Table.
Instead of the 1 hour and 30 minutes in line as I was informed, Frio could provide a table about 15 minutes after we got there!
Despite the expensive price for the brunch ($30/adult), the food was amazing!
And the most fun part was outside where my son could play soccer, jenga, run around...

We enjoyed our visit, the waiter was good and the holiday buffet met our expectations. What we did not like, upon arrival they had informed us the reservation we had made through opentable would not be honored. They did pull up the reservation and could see we made the reservation through opentable and tried to explain they had a cutoff time and we did not make that time. They did seat us promptly, only waited a few minutes, but they should make it known to opentable if they are not going to honor the reservations made through the app to prevent future confusion.
