Definitely a different style of food. The devilled egg appetizer was great and so were the shrimp and grits!

It started with the valet service having no organization and almost causing an accident. Then we were sat in the bar area where it was loud, the sever wasn’t attentive and hardly came back. The food was amazing but that was about it.

We had an amazing anniversary dinner and it was a pleasure to celebrate here after having our rehearsal dinner here four years ago! I cannot speak highly enough about the overall food quality, our service and experience. We love coming here and look forward to many more years doing the same.

The chicken fried steak could have used some salt in the batter, the steak was bland

Good menu selection and good food. Just very slow service. We waited a long time before our dinner was served. Also, the noise level is too much even for outside seating. Perhaps this is because we were seated next to a large group but you could hear them even from other tables. Would have been good if someone from the restaurant hadasked them to be courteous to other patrons and tame the noise down.

high quality ingredients into delicious and creative meals. There is something for everyone to enjoy. Beer list is a little disappointing. Our server was very plain and quiet - not exactly helpful for our first visit; but we cannot wait to return!

I ended up having a great experience but initially, they tried to seat me inside. I was incredibly annoyed by this since there was not an option to specify outdoor seating, and recent reports have stated it is unsafe to eat inside (hence why we chose this restaurant since they have great food and tons of outdoor seating). I would encourage them to add that designation to this reservation system for people like myself, that are not comfortable eating inside versus trying to force people into it when they show up for their reservation.

Such a great find! We had just arrived in Austin from a long flight and found this gem on google maps (my favorite eatery searching tool) although we were staying at a hotel downtown, we did the quick easy 8 minute drive and it was soooo worth it!
The food was well priced, fast and excellent! Best meal we have had in Austin so far and will go back before our trip is over! Our girls found fun vintage rings in the entry area. Definitely recommend. The yeast rolls, burgers, Texas caviar, deviled eggs! All great. The servers were so friendly.

We were not aware that the majority of the seating was outside but we were lucky that the weather was moderate. We think that happy hour is the time to visit and will return with friends to do that. Thanks!

Jacoby's was great! Tasty brunch and good cocktails. I think it a great option during COVID as they have a lot of patio space, have disposable menus and require masks unless seated at your table.

Brunch notes - The croque monsieur and biscuit & gravy are both flavorful and filling. Really good portions! On the croque monsieur: The pimento cheese and the hot sauce hollandaise are ah-may-zing! Little tip.. Add the fried egg on top. If you aren’t very hungry you could totally split an entree. The deviled eggs are a “skip”. They were rubbery, and didn’t taste like much - the hot sauce they serve on the side is also overwhelming. The small pitcher of mimosas is $24 and comes in a neat hand-blown glass pitcher and has a bottle of champagne in it, so it’s a good deal. The atmosphere is great, but super crowded (on the patio at least). Pre COVID and now: they have not changed anything about the outdoor seating situation. And they sit every table. So if this is something that concerns you, I would absolutely not eat here. Otherwise, it’s a cute place with good portions that deserves a try.

Food was delicious meat was on point!! Service was good. Only minor item you charge a $1 for ranch why? Ketchup was free and mayo I think to satisfying guests should be free

We were there with my parents & children. Everyone tried something different & all the dishes were delicious! Brussels sprouts were my fav & my parents couldn’t get over the grits! The setting is so beautiful & even though we were outside when it was 100 degree, it was actually very pleasant! As my dad put it, I don’t mind paying more when everything tastes this good!

Staff was slightly cold and unwelcoming. Started with the texas caviar, which was delicious. I ordered the chicken fried steak which was chewy and hard to cut. Arugula tasted bitter. Our server was, however, very attentive and pleasant. He was the only redeeming aspect of my visit. Won’t be back.

This place is a GEM! We ate all vegetarian and everything was absolutely delicious! The pulled Jackfruit was amazing! Most people don't think of a restaurant that is predominately a steakhouse for a vegetarian meal - maybe it's one of the best kept Austin secrets? I finally saved enough room for Strawberry Cake!

This was my first time at the restaurant and the experience was amazing. First of all the entire staff from the hostess to the wait staff was so friendly (and they all had masks on as well). We sat outside and at first I was a little concerned because let’s face it it’s summer in Texas. Lol! But the patio had plenty of fans and it was not hot at all. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and the food was EXCELLENT!! I would definitely recommend this spot again for brunch, lunch, or dinner. It’s a tad bit pricey but I can honestly say you definitely get your money worth.
