Great atmosphere and great location. The redfish was great, 13oz ribeye was good, could have used a good sear. The sides were very good. We will be back.

The Snapper was excellent and the drinks were also good. It's pure Texas and also is in a fun location at Legacy Hall with lots of shops, live music and bars nearby.

I have been looking forward to eating here for months! I rated this 3 out of 5 stars since there are some areas that need major improvement. I work in the hospitality industry so I know the struggles! :)

We had reservations for 8:15pm.... didn’t get sat until at least 9 or 9:15pm which defeats the purpose of having reservations but we still had a good time.
Also, when we walked in, there were 2 ladies at the door that welcomed us in so that was nice! But then there were 2 servers or some type of employees that just stood with their backs to us blocking us from getting to the hostess stand. We stood there saying excuse me to the 2 servers and they just ignored us while the 2 ladies started yelling “GUESTS GUESTS GUESTS!!!!” While laughing, As loud as they could. Pretty unprofessional. A simple walk over to their employees and a tap on the shower would have sufficed.
When we finally got the text that our table was ready, we went to the 1st floor hostess stand from the third floor. They then told us to go to the second floor hostess stand. In the future, the text should give the customer correct information as it didn’t specify which hostess stand to go to.

The bartender on the third floor was legit-no complaints. Dinner and food was great as was the atmosphere but drinks offered on the third floor should be able to be made on the second floor. I ordered 1 type of mule on the third floor and ordered another mule on the second floor to which they said they didn’t have the ingredients the third floor has which is odd but I just accepted the drink they gave me.

Other than that, we had a great time and I’ll be coming back because of the food and atmosphere.

It was a busy night. I had a reservation but they weren’t ready for us. We ended up waiting almost an hour and then we had to sit at a patio table that was set up in the corner. Others with reservations were getting seated so we didn’t buy the excuse of no one is getting up to leave. The manager immediately came to our table to apologize and brought out appetizers which she comped. That was very nice and honestly the least they could do. We were starving. Hopefully next time we can sit in the nice comfy chairs.

The issue is how loud it is and as is true for many restaurants, you can hardly carry on a conversation. The appetizers were fab, the chickens fried steak - well needs some work.

Haywire is a solid restaurant. The good news:
We enjoyed drinks on the patio and dinner inside with a group of 4. The service on the patio was very attentive and the drinks were good. Regarding dinner, our server was very attentive and truly wanted us to have a great meal.
Areas for improvement: You can't transfer your patio tab to your dinner bill. The hostess seemed taken aback by the question and said we had to pay it. So we went to the bartender and he was uncertain why we had been told to pay him, but he did settle the bill very quickly and professionally. If this is a policy it should be changed. Tabs should be transferrable. As for dinner, while our server was attentive she spent too much time with her guests which resulted in slow service. It took a long time to get our bill because she was talking with guests at another table for over 5 minutes. We actually had to walk over to her and interrupt her conversation at that table. Also, by the time our food arrived it was just room temperature which was not as expected and I can't point to why that may have been the case. We didn't mention it to her as things were moving slowly and we didn't want to have to spend more time. The food was tasty, the drinks good, and again our server was accurate and professional but slow in delivering the service - clearly just a training issue.

Overall, I would recommend Haywire. The food was fantastic and this was an energetic and very large place. No problems with the reservation and we were even a little early and were seated immediately.

The only concern with this place was the service we received. Our server was incredibly slow and we were, often times, without water and with empty plates. One of the bussers came up to us and said, "hey, are you done". Not even kidding. That was his approach. We liked the food, but expect MUCH better service than we received.

Haywire was a wonderful experience The food and the service were impeccable. My husband had the filet and said it was the best steak he ever had. We had a great lunch there last week and decided we would try for dinner Saturday night We were not disappointed. Our server Brad from lunch remembered us and stopped by to be sure we were enjoying our meal Our server Ryan was very attentive Everyone we encountered was pleasant friendly and highly professional. Another server Maria remembered us from another restaurant from several years ago and noticed us when we were being seated. The entire staff were terrific. The margaritas were excellent and the pecan pie was fabulous. We will be back!

We went for a dinner after work on a Friday and got say out side in the enclosed patio. It was loud....

We ordered the fried chicken which was good. And we ordered the chili rubbed gulf snapper. I
Had to get up and find my server to get salt and pepper. I don’t know why they didn’t season it past the chili rub. The orzo was terrible. No salt and no flavor. I didn’t even eat it.

I might go back for drinks but that is it. The server was terrible and the noise was ridiculous. Not sure why they sat a couple of two on the indoor patio that overlooks the food. Court during October fest seeing as how we made a reservation.

The food was okay and the service was just okay. Our server was more concerned with complaining to her co-worker than serving us.

It was a warm night as we wondered in the Legacy Hall. Haywire was our goal for the night as the crowd inside seemed alive and having fun. As we approached the greeting lady, we could see that a reservation was required or we would be condemned to wait towards eternity. I quickly reached my pocket and fired up my OpenTable app. I was looking for a sweet revenge, hurt by the look of this lady that made me feel the last customer on the planet. But we did it! OpenTable did not fail me and we clocked reservation down to 30 min! Yes! Ernesto was not there, but Jordan with a smile offered the $80 special cow so we could become members of an even more special club! After a wonderful, less expensive, meatloaf and the Angels and Cowboys wine, we were delighted to experience a 3-day preparation dessert, not by the cows, but the hands of a patient Chef! Wow!!! We were in heaven! We left that amazing place but we still don’t know the name of that lady that almost denied a group of 5 to enjoy the meatloaf and the slow cooking dessert! We promised ourselves that we will never come back unless using OpenTable!!! We together won this challenge and we love you dearly and fully.

I mean what not to like here. The food is hand crafted and over the top. Great selection all around and you can eat healthy. The win pour was amazing and the wait staff attentive but not pushy.

After I finished my meal I just sat back and enjoyed another glass of fine wine and watched the people around me.

Thanks for a great time and great meal

I enjoyed all aspects of this dining experience. There menu is interesting enough for visiting more than once and the service was excellent. Nice selection of wines & the dining area was comfortable. I would dine here again - though not a fan of restaurants in busy retail centers, Legacy West offers good after dinner spots to visit (dessert, drinks, etc.) as well.

I’ve been to Haywire a few times and have enjoyed it each time, except for yesterday. Something was off with our waiter and it really affected our visit in a negative way. Not sure if I will return based on this poor experience.
