Great menu - well executed.
Food was excellent.
Monday night was a quiet night - but then that's why we go on Monday night.
Will be back on other nights for Happy Hour.
Definitely recommend this place.

Great neighborhood dining. Excellent drinks. Eat as healthy as you want (salmon or chicken) or splurge on chicken fried ribeye

We have been here twice and really like it. Tia has been our server both times and that is part of the appeal. She is friendly and helpful with suggestions. Always prompt, but does not intrude. We feel taken care of and the obvious is attended to without interrupting conversation. The food is good. The wide variety of small plates is appealing to us. The signature drinks are great and the wine list is adequate.
The clientele is well heeled and over 35 - yea!!!!!!!!!! So glad this isn't another hipster joint-been there and done that.
The restaurant is pretty with nice lighting and comfortable seating. Could be our go to spot!

This was our first time at Republic Texas Tavern, but it will not be our last. It was a very positive experience. My wife ordered the pork chop which was huge. It was cooked perfectly as were the Brussel sprouts that came with it. I had the Filet which was, also, cooked perfectly. It can with a jalapeño sauce on the side which was different and very good. It came with smashed potatoes that were different than any I have ever had. Different and so much better! Our waitress, Sara, was excellent. She was friendly and balanced perfectly from being right there when we needed, but never overly obtrusive. Ask for her and you will not regret it. We certainly plan to.

We went because I researched new places for us to go. After reading Chef Rathbun is an owner/operator, my choice was made. We appreciated the special flavors and preparation of the food!! The quality, uniqueness and taste is definitely many notches above a chain restaurant. Even my signature cocktail was delicious with many nuanced flavors.

The atmosphere is casual and fun. The noise level is not obtrusive and we will definitely be back!! Bravo, Chef Rathbun!!

Drinks were pretty good. Service was very slow but we were hanging out with friends so it didn’t bother us. Started with the smoked meat board which was probably the highlight of the meal. Two of us ordered the chicken fried steak which was a big letdown. Very bland, breading fell right off of the meat…the only positive thing I can say is the meat was tender. My husband ordered the burger and enjoyed it but for $17 it nothing special. Food is overpriced. Unfortunately I’ve had better at Cracker Barrel for half the price. Really wanted to like this place. I’m not sure I would give it another try, too many great restaurants in Dallas.

A nice evening but the back room apparently was booked for private parties so our group of seven was in the very loud bar area. We could not hear each other talk. Wish we had known we would have picked another night.

The waiter in the bar was excellent as well as our drinks. The hostess is efficient and charming. The waitress was being trained and did not check back with us enough but the waiter tried as it was as busy as usual. The food is always excellent. We’ll be back!

Republic really does it right. Fantastic food, drinks and even more fantastic service. We had a group of 10 that included four children and our server managed the table perfectly focusing on the children and their food early so the adults could catch up after 18 months. The server even brought ice cream coupons from the next door ice cream shop for the kids as well--nice touch.

Only two choices of wine for HH which the one I ordered was not good. Otherwise wine was $15-20/glass - too expensive.

Food is always good but seems your usually out of the wine I pick to drink, then I get stuck with another one, good but priced more than my first request. I feel I shouldn’t have to pay more for something I settled for in the first place. Just food for thought.

Every other time I have been to Republic I’ve been pleased, but last night was not a good experience. I was surprised we didn’t get physical menus- the wear and tear on the bar codes made getting an electronic menu take an awkward amount of time. Then it took a really long time for the waiter to ask for our order- about 25 minutes. And it wasn’t too busy at 9 pm at night, though it was a Saturday. And they seem to have not fully adapted to opening up their policies after COVID. Once we did get our salads we realized we needed seasoning (and also on the fried chicken), however there was no salt or pepper on the table. The flavors were just surprisingly bland- everything seemed to be off- food and service. The times between seeing the server didn’t improve during the meal. I still gave a good tip because I appreciate having servers at all after the difficulty running a restaurant can be in the environment we have seen.

I hope to return one more time to see if it is better! I sure appreciate having a restaurant in the area.
