We had a chance to go to Haywire in St. Patrick’s Day for our anniversary. We had a great time. The restaurant was not busy at all because of the coronavirus, but the staff were awesome. They were clearly taking copious safety precautions and were excited to have guests.

The food was delicious. My wife had a slight temperature issue with her ribeye, but the folks at Haywire went above and beyond to accommodate. We will absolutely return, and hopefully they will bounce back from the decrease in customers due to the virus quickly!

First time at Haywire; I was expecting better food and a more "upscale" atmosphere. The food was fine, nothing great, and the seating on the second floor felt like a dark cafeteria. Service was really nice. I had a margarita, and it wasn't very good.

I highly recommend trying Haywire! The modern-rustic decor with barnwood accents provides a warm and welcoming environment, and is not stuffy at all. I really like how the bar is downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. For dinner, my wife ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and absolutely loved it. I ordered the Texas Redfish, which was outstanding. We also shared a side of Brussels Sprouts , which were cooked with jalapenos for just enough kick.

Great job!
Appetizer were perfect; we shared a hummus plate. Fresh, crisp chips and the hummus mix was well balanced.

The entrees were pure Texas beef...

The cowboy steak was cooked with the right mix of seasonings, medium rare and sizable portion.

The boneless ribeye was the same. Perfectly cooked, well seasoned and great portion.

For sides the mixed vegetables and potatoes were cooked just right.

The drinks were outstanding...Bourbon Old Fashioned and Mule were absolutely perfect.

Leslie did a great service job.

I asked the waiter for Ketchup when my meal was delivered, and did not get it until I had finished my meal. We tried to remind him as the meal progressed, but he would not come near our table.
Secondly, our waiter had huge underarm perspiration stains on his shirt! As he served us with this sweat soaked shirt, it was most unappetizing! There should be hygienic policies in place for the service staff!!!

The greeting, the ambiance, the decor, the food are all worth visiting; however I would recommend to go during low volume times. The service was absolutely poor as our table was being "attended" by two waiters who could not seem to manage the tables assigned to them. Waiter forgot about my wife's drink then forgot we told him we were ready to order and disappeared for about 15 min. After communicating with the manager they seemed to be back on their game but it was very obvious they could not manage the work load. I would recommend to add more waiters or provide better training.

Place is very nice. Service is very good. 2 of 3 dinners were very good. But for one of the three meals (fish), it was undercooked. Service replaced it with another dish (pork chop) no questions asked, but it was also undercooked. We were not charged for the fish.

The food is always top notch. We visited most recently for my sister’s birthday. There were 6 of us. Service was excellent! I believe Devyn(sp?) was our servers name.
We had a mixture of entrees between all of us, and ended up sharing bites of each other’s food-it was all that good! The bread pudding they brought out as a treat for my sister, was the best I’d ever had-and I’ve had a lot. Bread pudding is my husbands favorite, so we have tried our share!
Love the atmosphere, service and food! We will all be back!

I love haywire but it missed the mark on this visit. The garlic filet has been my go-to but it was very dry and underwhelming this time. Not worth the $40 price tag. Service was slow as well. Glad I was with good company and was distracted by the sub par experience. I do expect more from haywire.
