Theater night out with the girls
great beer selection and i love that they allow you to choose ANY 4 beers for a flight. So many places have a "hoppy flight," "local flight," "dark flight" . the Republic let's you build your own... and they have a great selection to choose from. Great tacos (good for vegetarians too) and an excellent BLT(with egg).
Beer selection was fantastic. My chicken sandwich was great. However, the burgers the ladies ordered were all mixed up based on medium / medium-well. The server had to be asked twice for water, never refilled them once, and then I asked for a half-glass of water at the time of the check that was never filled. My wife over-tipped and we still got ignored by the server as we left. I've been a server / bartender and so I'm pretty laid back about it, but this was poor. Still a great place, but poor service doesn't exactly cause a person to rush back.
A go-to casual spot. Great food, lots of options no matter your dietary preferences. Great beer list.
Because we had hard of hearing seniors with us, we asked for quieter seating and it was perfect!
We love this place! Great beer- many options! Great food, great location, ambiance and great service!!
Being a vege/pescatarian, it was a welcome surprise to have a few food options at a beer place. The seating was cramped (the person sitting behind me and I were fighting for space), but the service was friendly and fast. Its close to the Southern Theater, so its a good option pre-show. The seats fill fast; good thing reservations are easy.
Great service, unique menu and very good service. I will recommend to friends for casual occasions.
Restaurant was ready for us, but we were placed in a giant room alone which had no ambiance or vibe. Not sure why when there were many other tables available. We contemplated sitting at the bar, and should have. The bar is really the focus of this place. Food is just OK.
The food was so good, we went back the next day. Conviently located in the seven corners area
Nice night with friends - good food and drinks in a pleasant spot.
Not impressed. Good location for Theatre in the Round. Good beer selections. No other reason to go. We ordered appetizer, never came. No real apology for it. Waiter never checked with us. Won't be back and don't recommend.
First time I had been here. Enjoyed the decor. The stained glass was really cool. The food was good but even on a Monday, it was hard to hear others in our group conversation.
Four friends gather for supper before a show at Theater in the Round. That's the perfect setting for fun and enjoyment. That is what we got with Republic. They were having great happy hour specials, both food and drink, that we took advantage of. Everything was delicious and the drinks were not watered down. Our server was very helpful and made great recommendations. We would definitely return. The only downside was getting our car towed from the lot across the street because we put the ticket upside down. A very expensive ($135) lesson in pay parking lot etiquette. Just handle the parking correctly and you will have a great time at Republic.
Great experience. They accommodated our large reservation (11 people) and then were not annoyed when 3 people bailed last minute (even if we were annoyed at our friends..). Food and drinks were great and the service was good too. We had kids and they were all happy. Overall great experience.
Great selection of porters and stouts for Imperial Black Friday!
Great place for brunch! Food and drinks were great!
The front door brings you through the bar and at the end the hostesses are waiting. We sat down at a table that was a sticky wood feeling like a dirty bar. My wifes water and drink glass was chipped. The waitress welcomed us and since we are new to the bar told us it is known for their 100 kinds of beer. That is the only thing this place will be known for. The food was brunt a long with the fries and was so bad I only made it half way through it. The waitress didn’t even ask how the food was or notice it was only half gone before taking it from the table. I didn’t have a problem with the waitress or her service but will not be returning due to the food and ambiance of the place.
Service was slow and it was unclear as to why. The restaurant was semi-busy, but didn't seem overly busy.
We dined at Republic on Saturday evening. Good service and food. The only thing which made it a unpleasant dining experience was the temperature inside the restaurant was 80º and sitting on the patio wasn't an option since it was close to 90º outside.
Our server was a bit "absent." When she came around, she was very pleasant. Food was good.
We have eaten at Republic many times and enjoyed the breakfast options and good service. The staff is friendly and willing to offer opinions on menu items. The food was overall well prepared and served hot. Although we didn't partake this time, their bloody mary bar is a tasty way to start your Sunday, especially if you are heading to the game.
A lot of people were outside so the inside was quiet. Happy hour specials are great value. Dinner was good although the batter for the fish and chips was a big soggy (oil not hot enough). Moderate prices and great service.
Inadequate facilities and staff for the size. Waited over 35 minutes for 'bar food' (burger and fries). Was a constant line of 8+ people for restrooms (only 2 'single lane' facilities for a large venue). Weather was nice, and the large patio was open -- which only makes the issues worse.
Probably a nice place on a weeknight, when it's not crowded (but then why would you want to be there?), but not recommended on Friday/Saturday nights, when the weather is nice, or there is a concert or football game at the stadium.
Excellent buffalo burger, fish n chips, & drinks. We went before and after film. Service before was excellent--after poor!
Good location with easy access to parking in the area. Excellent shaded outdoor seating with ample room indoors.
The food was excellent and served quickly. Waitstaff were excellent. I would recommend for any occasion.
He service was very slow and unapologetic. They brought us an appetizer with no plates, napkins or silverware. When I asked the hostess for silverware, she gave me attitude. Will never return.
Our group of seven were given a nice table away from the crowd so we could celebrate our special occasion. Great food, amazing on tap beer selection and excellent service. This venue is close to both the university and downtown, with plenty of parking near by.
Don't ever go here before a concert. Poorly unable to handle business and I had a reservation. Took 2 hours to get 1 round of drinks and dinner. Had to get our own silverware and napkin. They never brought our appetizers or the second round of drinks we ordered. Won't ever go here again before a big event. They can't handle it. Just not prepared. Ruined the pre concert experience.
Went here after a day of travelling. Sat outside on the patio on a beautiful July evening. Good central location and walking distance to/from our hotel. I got the fried chicken sandwich. Really good with great pickles. Teen daughter got tacos= also good. They were out of my first two choices of wine, so that was a bummer. Everything else was great. Seemed to have a huge beer list.
This was our second time there. Both times the food has been delicious. This time, our server seemed a bit distracted or something, we couldn't get her attention for a second beer after she had asked us how the food was after she had set it down.
We ended up sitting on the patio and while it was relatively busy, our server was still quite attentive. Chorizo burrito was delish. In fact, I think all 4 of us cleaned our plates. Will definitely return.
Real solid food, lots of variety. Great tap list.
They do have a full beer menu! However the food was soso.
We had a lovely Mother's Day dinner on the outdoor patio. Our server was very patient as there were 6 of us, and she managed to keep our orders straight. My Dad really likes the spicy jambalya.
Great food and service, we always find both at Republic!
Gotta laugh! All four of us used to frequent the Republic location when we were undergrads and it was called Sargent Preston's. It hasn't changed much and we had a great time. Beer menu is greatly improved over the last 40 years and the cider menu isn't bad either.
The happy hour was incredible at Republic. They had such great prices for appetizers and drinks. The guacamole was pretty tasty as well as the nachos. Everyone also really enjoyed the fish and pulled pork tacos. We got a seat on the patio (with 10 people) which was really nice.
Great value happy hour. Good burgers and fish tacos.
Great cocktails and beer list. Reasonably priced.
