This is the second time I’ve eaten at this restaurant and gotten sick. Although the ambience is great, I won’t be returning.
Service was awful - so slow - splitting the check for a large party was very inconvenient
Brunch trip. Great decor and set up. Great mimosa that come in the cutest pitcher. The kolache was ok... sausage was cold on the inside and breading was very hard on the outside which caused the whole thing to come apart when biting. Duck migas were watery and again OK. On the fab note was the biscuit and gravy, and strawberry cake. Both worth going back and eating again.
Food was great, service was too. Laid-back Aus
Stuffed hamburger steak way too salty. Pork chop was bland. Yeast rolls had a small sliver of brisket. Expected so much more for the hype. Service was mediocre. Empty beer bottle sat on table for over an hour without the waitress ever offering another beer. The kid refilling the water glasses was on point. My glass was constantly refilled. He did a great job. Ambiance was great. Overall not impressed with menu options. Not a good value and will not return.
Jacoby‘s was very accommodating to my large party they held our reservation for almost an hour and were very quick to serve us our waiter was amazing. Definitely recommend this place for brunch!
Service was very slow, and it was packed on a Tuesday night. Drinks took forever, then were delivered wrong. Overall, though, the food was tasty, once it finally arrived. If it's this busy on a Tuesday night, I'd hate to see what happens on Friday and Saturday.
Biscuits, burgers, deviled eggs, and cocktails are devine.
Jacoby’s is a go-to for us when it comes to celebrating. The cocktails are always amazing as is the food but in all honesty, we go for the strawberry cake. So. Good.
A disappointing experience with one of the most lackluster service experiences I have had in quite some time and I eat out multiple times a week. The brunch food was very tasty. Our server made very infrequent appearances. I essentially had to beg for a second glass of wine. If you want to charge the prices they charge, you need to provide a better experience for your customers
Excellent food and beverage, oustanding service. We will be back again.
Jacoby’s was great! The food was high quality and very tasty. It’s a little on the pricier side but the ambiance and atmosphere makes up for it a little. We sat inside because it was a rainy day but if it’s nice weather the patio is beautiful and would be great for a large group. This is definitely a great place for a special occasion or celebration. Would recommend again!
Such a fun atmosphere with great food and awesome drinks!! Highly recommend!!
Every time I come to town, I take locals here. Every dish is amazing.
Always good food. Love this restaurant
We had an 8 top - all of which are foodies with high expectations.
The server was efficient and friendly. It was a birthday party and she knew I’d say yes to her suggestions so I think she overdid the amount of food we needed in order to boost the ticket (it was an auto-grat)
As far as the food goes, no one in my party was thrilled. Several items came out cold and we were not fans of the beef. It tasted gamey. The atmosphere Was what you would expect in a Mercantile… At the end of the day it was very pricey and that they didn’t hold up so we would not return.
2nd time here...amazing food and fantastic service!!
Wonderful food - the deviled eggs are the BEST!!! The service is wonderful!!! Get there while the weather is good to sit outside.
Really delicious over-priced southern food on the river. It's a fancy Cracker Barrel. I'd go there a lot more if I were a billionaire. Recommend. ♡
Loved it! Came for brunch. Excited to return for happy hour in the evening
Ate brunch on the patio. Great views of the river. Great food. My son ordered the smoked salmon board. Asked the waiter how much salmon was served, waiter said serving was about the size of your fist; yeah, George Forman's fist.
Servings were really generous, especially for the price. GOOD VALUE,. Good and fast service. We will be back.
1st time here and the whole experience was great. Our server was attentive and friendly, the drinks were timely and delicious, our food was served at a great temperature. The steak was melt in your mouth good and the pecan pie was delicious.
The price was acceptable. The flavor was amazing. Our server Jeff was exceptional. I hope to make a visit to Jacobys more routinely.
Such interesting offerings! Try the apple cider/cinnamon syrup mimosa, for example....really nice without being too sweet. Our server made us feel so welcome...sorry that I can't remember her name.
I love eating here. A little pricey for what you get, but it’s austin, Texas and I would expect nothing less. One of my fav brunch spots nonetheless.
Great staff and great food! Maple pecan pancakes... AMAZING!!
We had the deviled eggs, pimento cheese grits, and the smoked salmon board from the Shared Plates section. Each one was distinctive, and we would look forward to having them again. The mains we're the crab cakes and the duck migas which were also excellent! Laid back atmosphere and attentive staff added to the overall impression. It was a special time. Will definitely return!
Our server was awful. It took us nearly 2 hours to get our brunch! She hardly checked in on us and was very unapologetic.
I had been there once before and had a great experience. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere.
The food was meh yet expensive. My food was lukewarm when it came out. It’s a beautiful place with great decor. A shame that the product didn’t live up to expectations.
Always a great dinner.
Amazing service always. Vegetarian meatloaf was so decadent and yummy!
Awfully loud but good service and food. Probably wouldn’t go back as I couldn’t really hear my date with the acoustics and close seating. The food was good but not anything so amazing you can’t get at another pretentious Austin restaurant.
Poor service, host was very unprofessional, took forever to get food then order was messed up and had to wait dor correct meal. Would not recommend or return again.
Food was amazing and awesome service ! I will definitely come back the next time I’m in Austin!
Absolutely loved it- our new favorite!
We had a great time, and will be back soon!
Truly awesome experience! Great food. Wonderful staff! A great gem on the east side!!
Food and ambiance did not fit the price. Not sure I would recommend.
always a sure thing when at Jacoby's. Food, Drinks (marfa margarita) service-always on point!!
Excellent restaurant! We had amazing service and the food was outstanding. Great happy hour! Will definitely return!
