Just as good as the web site says. Fresh, wonderful lobster rolls, good draft beer, fries are awesome, same for the champagne vinaigrette dressing and the salad it came on!
Friendly, prompt service --will be back!
Lobster roll and shrimp roll were great. The bread was flat grilled and really good. Crispy brussel sprouts were delicious. Side salad was plentiful, properly dressed, but a little plain. Delicious key lime pie. Service was very good, attentive but not intrusive. Comfortable atmosphere, casual and not stuffy.
This little gem is so perfectly quaint! We enjoyed sharing plates and enjoying the atmosphere.
Scallops were divine! Fish and chips totally fresh, huge portion and beer batter is great.
saw Garbo's on Food Network feature--had to give it a try--it was awesome--and we drove in from Dripping Springs. Food was spectacular...service terrific!!
The first time we went it was delicious,must have a different cook.
Salad very plain spring mix with tomatoes,no onions or eggs plain.
I'm from N,H lobster was not delicious or thing I can compliment was the clam chowder not as good as mine.
Not worth my trip of miles to go again.
Sorry I wish it been better!
Great food at a good price. Would highly recommend. The clam chowder is awesome!
The crab cake appetizer and clam chowder were great. The lobster roll was very small and just ok. I thought the lobster roll was too pricy for what we got.
Great lobster rolls and bisque. Went for Valentine day lunch. Excellent lunch with dessert.
The waitress was very helpful and on top of tables, despite it being a holiday. The food and drinks were great and we'll definitely add this to our date night list of restaurants.
Very nice people and the food was great !
This was my second time at Garbo's. It was a family dinner with teens to grandparents. The food is fantastic. We spent a lot of money ( because we ordered a lot). This was a great opportunity for our young waitress to make a big tip. She was very sweet but not attentive. Drink glasses were empty, we requested our food come out in a certain order - it didn't. Some of us had to sit and wait until the others had finished their 1st order before we received ours. We tipped 20% but she could have earned much more.
We had panko fried shrimp, a Maine lobster roll, and a moon pie. The shrimp was hot and crispy, and there were 5 or 6 large shrimp in the basket. The lobster roll was tasty on a toasted bun. The fries were hot and tasty, not at all soggy. The moon pie was a little different than we expected but really a nice dessert for our lunch. I thought the shrimp basket was the better value.
Food was good, both in taste and quantity. Menu a little limited but you go here for what they have: New England style seafood. Service was very nice. Informal pleasant atmosphere. I enjoyed the meal and would definitely go back and try other things on the menu.
Garbo’s is one of our favorite seafood restaurants in Austin. The staff is always super friendly and the lobster rolls are definitely the best in town!
I loved the crab cakes and the lobster bisque. It’s in a strip mall , so pretty casual setting.
Garbo's is now a favorite. Service and food were tremendous! Lobster rolls are awesome! And that sauce on the special shrimp and mussels dish! We had to order more sauce we loved it so much. Everyone at garbos is outstanding!
The food was amazing! I was auth two friends. We shared the taste of Maine wth an added Connecticut roll first. It was so divine we each ordered another of our favorite roll. Simply divine! Definitely recommend to everyone.
Great place for a nice lunch or dinner reminiscent of a New England Dockside Cafe.
It never disappoints!
We adore this place. It’s our go-to for a holiday, celebration, or just when we want the best food in town!
I toke 2 friends who had never been to the restaurant. All three of us ordered dishes we would order again. The service was very pleasant and efficient.
Although we didn't need to make a reservation, I'm always pleased at the restaurants that accept them.
We started eating at the truck and was glad to find the restaurant. It is one our favorite places. Highly recommend as the food has been consistently excellent
So glad you were close to where I was staying for work. I had heard about Garbo's and decided to make the quick drive. The service was quick and friendly. The clam chowder was good but the Connecticut lobster roll was the star. I love that the roll was light and airy and melted away when bitten into so that you could savor the lobster. It was incredible! The key lime pie made in house was also a winner. So worth the hunt!
The food was outstanding! We’ll be back! The service was excellent and we just found out they have a pet friendly patio. We’ll bring our dog next time!
Awesome food, awesome service. Our little neighborhood secret.
Quick service, extremely kid friendly and the food was divine
Garbo’s was excellent! Lobster Bisque was superb. Great portion too, I️ ordered the cup, looked more like a bowl. My husband and I shared the Maine Lobster Roll, Crab Roll and Shrimp Roll. Yummy! So much food:) The service was great. We went in for lunch and were celebrating our anniversary. We will be back:-)
Excelente comida, me sorprendió la calidad de los alimentos, increíble encontrar en Texas un lugar con muy buena langosta, altamente recomendable, precios muy accesibles
Everything at Garbo's is amazing. The lobster rolls are the main event, but the fish and chips is fantastic (the fish is about a foot long) and my kids love the burgers. It's a simple menu, and simple dining room, focused on doing a few things very well.
Fourth trip, always excellent! Took visiting Mother and she had one of the best seafood dishes ever. I always love their clam chowder and Connecticut lobster roll. Best I’ve ever had!!!
We took friends for their first time and they loved it! Saturday lunch specials are a well-kept secret, too.
Seated immediately w our reservation made 45 minutes before. Happy and vibrant hostess and waitress who brought us some tasty suds and quickly took our order. Great tasting food for a good value considering the fresh, rich, and delectable food we ordered (Maine Lob Roll w Brussels Sprouts and the Fried Lobster "BLT" Saturday special). Will be monthly regulars to say the least!
Garbo's is really all about lobster rolls, but this time I tried the fish and chips, which was just as amazing. The service is great, the food is fast and fresh, and the menu is focused on what works, with no need to add to superfluous or faddish ingredients.
Delicious food, excellent service. We love to go here for Sunday brunch.
Great service for a birthday meal. Very cute decor and excellent Lobster Roll!
I ordered the fish and chips and The fish was very bland. No taste at all. The calamari was bland was well. It was supposed to be fried but the breading fell off.
Always fantastic! We had an excellent dinner!
Food is good, service is great. Only thing I don't like : lobster rolls are small for the price.
Disappointed....I got the special - lobster BLT. The lobster was "lobster strings" and I couldn't find the bacon on my sandwich. Fries were extra. Also, why would you charge a customer 25 cents for extra tartar sauce...really?
Love Garbo's. First time at the actual restaurant and loved it. Service was outstanding and food was great! You can't go wrong with the Lobster Roll. We ordered it Connecticut-style with the butter as well as the lobster grilled cheese which came with chunky tomato soup. Yum! Also got the raw oysters since they were on special on Tuesday. Equally as fantastic! Highly recommend!
