    Great atmosphere, but my steak came out overdone. I was never asked how my steak was or if I was satisfied with it. Most places do this and if I had been asked I would have shared my thoughts. I just didn’t want to go through waiting for another steak while my wife’s food got cold or she ate while I sat there. Ideally the steak would have been done correctly. I don’t pull a stink with servers over these things, I still tip well and I just won’t ever go back.

    We ate on a Wednesday evening. Reservations were for 7:30pm. Our server was excellent. I ordered a Mexican martini and it was horrible way too much olive juice and I couldn’t even drink it. It was so sour with olive juice. My sister ordered redfish and it was so dry. She couldn’t eat it and we had it returned. RC Bass was exceptional. My brother-in-law had a hamburger. He said. It was totally mushy that the bun was mushy and he said he would’ve rather gone to McDonald’s. Unfortunately, the vote was a no go!

    Great fun! Enjoyed dinner at The Golden Rule twice and both times food was excellent and drinks are spot on. Ambience is perfect and wait staff is friendly and helpful! I’m a creature of habit so both times I ate the guacamole and bacon appetizer and the Candied Pecan fried chicken! Ahhhmazing! I will branch out next time to be sure! The coffee and ice cream dessert was delicious as well, and my husband enjoyed the Buffalo Trace Blondie for dessert and it was also the bomb diggity! All in all a Great time was had by all!

    Our group ordered and shared 4 entries and 2 appetizers. We collectively agreed that all the food served was fantastic and well worth the purchase price. The restaurant has quieter areas where the noise level is more reasonable. Highly recommend you dine at The Golden Rule when visiting Georgetown TX.

    Quick lunch before heading to airport. Service was excellent. Maddie was friendly, arrived at the table right after we were seated, kept checking back to make sure we didn’t need anything else throughout the meal. The Huevos Rancheros, according to my buddy was spot on! I had the elk smash burger with fries. That burger was amazing! All around a great experience
