Biscuit and gravy was the best I ever had. Biscuit was light and fluffy. Gravy was full of flavor but not spicy, just the way I like it.

Never disappointed when going for brunch or dinner. Food is great but the staff is what sets the experience apart from other restaurants. Highly recommend spending an afternoon brunch or evening dinner at Jacoby’s.

Great experience overall. Wait staff rushed us even though there were plenty of tables. Entrees arrived right after appetizers were served.

Such a great experience at Jacobys ! It was all of our first time dining here and everything from the ambiance, staff, and the food were incredible! The hosts and all staff (especially our waitress Elena!) went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience. The food was delicious and the cocktails were great too! Will definitely be back

We felt safe and well taken care of sitting outside, the food was absolutely delicious, and the staff attentive and accommodating. We don't go out much during the pandemic but we were very happy with our experience at Jacoby's. The outdoor space is so well designed and beautiful. And I forgot how much I love their strawberry cake!

My friends and I had heard great things about Jacoby’s, but this was all of our first visit. We had heard the truth, everything was wonderful! All of our meals were delicious, our server was knowledgeable and friendly, and the Covid precautions assuaged any anxiety I felt about dining out.

The service and food preparation was excellent! We had a medical emergency with one of our guests. The manager adjusted our bill which helped us because we were not able to finish our meal! We are looking forward to returning to Jacoby’s!

The food was outstanding as always. Service is top notch. My water Glas was never empty. I had the beef hash which was delicious, my only complaint was it was a little too sweet.

The grits and Mac and cheese 2nd to none. We were disappointed to see the scones off the menu, but I understand the need to keep the menu fresh. We had the banana nut bread instead and it amazing.

This is a great spot in Austin. In on the east side kind of out of the way, so if you're looking to get away from the crouds downtown this is the spot.

Great experience except the restaurant did not communicate with open table that I was there. So I got open tables reminder of the no show policy. Don’t like that. Food is always great and vibe is good.

Great experience. Pet friendly, which is not an issue but our neighboring table’s dog was pretty big and shaking his coat behind me. Not exactly what I prefer in my immediate surroundings while I’m eating. Otherwise service and food was awesome!!

Very lovely, and delicious! My dad grew up in Melvin, TX with Jacoby's grandparents. We had family in town this weekend. It was perfect getting a little taste of Melvin here in ATX.

Great job, Adam!

When I made the reservation, I assumed that we would be seated outside due to Covid. We were sat inside. They offered to put us outside. I think I wouldn’t make a reservation online again since I would want to sit outside if I went back. Food was great, they do have valet parking for tips.

If you are looking for a great outdoor dining space, this is the place! We had a blast at the all-night happy hour on Wednesday, so we got to enjoy cocktails, appetizers, and the outstanding burger all for a great price. Service was excellent, and their patio can't be beat. It's beautiful, relaxing, and has the true Austin vibe. Also, whatever you do, don't pass up the strawberry cake. Grandma Hagler's recipe can't be beat!

Great family meal! The apps and main courses were delish. The desserts we’re not as great as thought they would be but that’s ok. We will be back when visiting Austin in the fiture!
