Great outside area with fans and misters to hell with heat. But by 1pm when we left the temp was 96 with high humidity
Nothing can provide relief then except AC. Loved the tomato tart, challah French toast, salads, migas, biscuits, cornbread.Everything we tried

The food was okay but super overpriced. I got the steak frites that was a bed of fried with 4 mini slices of unseasoned steak. The dish ended up being $38, which is the most I’ve ever spent on dressed fries. I was super unimpressed by the steak, as it looked like it was just lightly browned in a pan and tasted like nothing.

Love the outside seating! Great atmosphere! Skip the cauliflower entree. Should be removed from menu. Great Moscow Mule! Food is not the strong suite.

We had a kid with us and since we’ve never been we were worried, but the open air seating was just loud enough and spread out enough that it wasn’t an issue at all. Fans with misters kept it nice and cool, but I can imagine if we had gone earlier around 5pm it would have been hot. The food was excellent. Highly recommend the stuffed yeast rolls. So good. I had the chicken fried steak which was good but not great. My friend had the special burger which he said was very good. Their fries are delicious as well.

We love Jacoby’s! It is the perfect spot to take people coming to TX, for them to get a Texas experience. Everything we have had here is tasty! Our server was terrific and the drinks went down smooth. One of our faves.

Went for an early dinner and was able to catch the tail end of their incredible happy hour. Highly recommend but the food was so good we'll definitely be back for dinner. Would be great for a group setting (assuming you've been vaccinated!) but also casual enough that our kids could join. A++

Food was amazing. Server seemed to be overwhelmed and couldn’t seem to come to our table often. They apparently had a large party in a different room.

The food was great except that the house beef tenderloin we ordered was very over cooked and the price point was high for what it was. Service was great but we were seated outside and we had to combat flies throughout dinner despite there being fans.

I have visited Jacoby's for years and have always loved it. I know restaurants are having difficulty currently with staffing and therefor other things can be affected so I'm not going to let this single experience change my overall opinion but I was disappointed. We were out to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary with our daughter and it just wasn't as special as we had hoped. We were sat on picnic tables, waited for a very long time for food (which was just one entrée and all the family sides), the steak and macaroni were great but everything else just didn't ring true to our usual experiences at Jacoby's, our waiter did not tell us about any specials/desserts/etc. it was all just a very generic dining experience and not what we were hoping for.

Was our first time there and I can’t remember the servers name unfortunately! (She was wearing a cute red Hawaiian looking shirt?) She was attentive and super sweet, service overall was amazing. The food was really good as well, we will be back for sure!

My husband and I tried Jacoby’s for the first time. We celebrated his birthday there. The decor and theme are so quaint , warm and welcoming. We sat inside where although small, was moderately loud. But the food, atmosphere, and service outweighed the noise level. They have a lovely large patio too. The brisket yeast rolls and homemade “grandma’s recipe” strawberry cake were the best we’ve ever tasted. We will be back. My husband had the cheeseburger which was delicious. I ate too many brisket yeast rolls, so I had the watermelon salad. It is a great light summer salad. We will be back!

Love jacoby’s! Always outstanding food and service. Not big fans of the new expanded seating area on pavement with a basic white tent and picnic tables. It was hot and didn’t mesh with pretty vintage/natural setting that’s always been a big draw out there. Felt like we were in a different restaurant than the other guests. Hopefully it’s a temporary solution.

I am SO glad I checked out Jacoby's! It was a fantastic choice for Sunday brunch and the views were great. I'd suggest an outdoor table away from a server's station.

Food wasn't bad, but it was awfully overpriced. In my opinion, Austin has more reasonably priced alternatives with comparable quality.
