Telling like it was from my perspective. Complimentary valet (plus good self parking). They had non alcoholic beer and a delicious mocktail. But... the food was lackluster. I ordered 3 plates for myself: biscuit & gravy (it has meat in the gravy, not mentioned in description), the cornbread (the jam was the winner of this dish) and scrambled eggs. I left hungry. My husband had and enjoyed the veggie burger, but didn't eat his bland fries (no salt, pepper, or seasoning... not even salt and pepper on the table). We ordered a cinnamon roll and the frosting was perfect, but the roll was hard and lacked flavor.
Our service was not amazing. At one point we timed 15 minutes from when we finished our meal to when we saw our section's waiter enter the room, but other staff was friendly. This was hit and miss, would not go back, but maybe you will have a better time.

Food was good. But honestly way overpriced. We shared a 12oz rib eye & xtra side of mashed potatoes , subtract the drinks and we still paid 90.00 for the food, did order one salad, portions were small on mash potatoes , Brussels sprouts & salad Waitress was nice but would check on us every 3-4 mins .

We were scared to go out with our 2yo who had a positive Covid case notification this week in his Montessori class, but I called Jacoby's and we made arrangements to dine socially distanced and safe, outdoors. The food was excellent, the space was amazing, the view is too good to be true, and I will definitely be back!

The hostess and waitstaff were all very nice, very accommodating. We sat at a table outside and it was a beautiful morning in Austin. Brunch menu offered excellent choices. The tater tots and cornbread as a starter for party was delicious. Food overall was very good. Will go back soon!

Pretty disappointed with the food and service on this trip. The waiter was not very attentive and didn’t have much of a table side manner. There was only 2 of us and they seated us at a table for 6, which was awkward. We ordered the steak options for the evening and we were pretty disappointed. I got the filet, which was cooked perfectly, but had absolutely no flavor at all. My husband had the NY strip, which was very chewy. The only saving grace was their amazing strawberry cake. I should have just ordered cake for dinner.

The food and service was excellent! My son and his college roommates had the Thursday special and they were totally WOW'd by the Chicken Fried Steak. I had the shrimp and grits and was totally pleased. Our table attendant was so attentive even though the place was packed. P.s. the strawberry cake is a MUST!

I was underwhelmed by the food during brunch. The French toast was too sweet and too soft, the brioche bread that was used was over soaked. The crab cake benedict lacked seasoning most places, with zero crab flavor. However, the chocolate peanut truffles were so salty that we couldn’t even finish one per person. Very cute restaurant, with friendly staff but the food is a pass for me.

No savory items that didn't have peppers in them. Only sweet items for those of us with nightshade problems.
I really wish restaurants would figure out that you can always add peppers, but you can't take 'em out :(

We came here for my 30th birthday expecting something a bit more upscale. Felt a bit over dressed but we were basing our assumptions off the website. No one was impressed with the food. My steak and carrots were both undercooked and the mac and cheese was dry. Lack of flavor.

After all was said and done we spent $350 on our tap and felt disappointed. Won't recommend or come back.

It’s just good ol fashion southern comfort food. It’s nothing all that creative, I really don’t think a $25 meatloaf is cool. Even if they are playing Waylon Jennings on repeat.
