Great atmosphere- drinks were refreshing, food was amazing!
Nice place, good food. Went for Sunday brunch and enjoyed the TV's tuned to The Open and Tour de France.
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!
First time here ..The food was great and in excellent serving size.. The tina cones were delicious..Both brownies and bread pudding were exceptionally tasty.. Get a later seating to avoid kids noise..
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.
Great place to eat! Service was great! Our family from out of town loved the food.
Great food, great seevice!
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!!
great food! very loud- and service was slow but the food truly delicious!
Great menu options, appetizers and main course as well as dessert. All excellent!
Service was prompt, professional and personable. Food was good quality and tasted great.
It was our first time and we were pleasantly surprised. Drink selection, food & service were all good. Would definitely go again.
Calvin (CJ) is the best! Will ask for him again!
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.
Nice neighborhood spot. Food was very good. Cocktails were excellent.
We arrived early and were seated immediately. Very good wine list, food was generous and good. Noisy, but great service and food.
Birthday celebration with friends and we were taken care of very well!
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.
Incredible place. One of the best in dallas.
Awesome service, food quality, cocktails & wine selection. Good atmosphere which is great for casual & special occasions.
Our new favorite place! Incredible menu- great atmosphere and the owner and staff are just the absolute best!
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!
Overall we enjoyed our first trip to Texas Republic Tavern. The staff were very friendly and our server was outstanding in every area!
Our food was good but not Great to be honest. We will go back again because of the atti upbeat can do attitude of everyone involved.
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.
Twenty minutes after seating before we were greeted. Food was good but not great. Extremely loud.
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.
Fun menu for Sunday Brunch.
what a hidden gem! Truly enjoyed every bite! The service was present and attentive, but not excessive. The vibes were warm and cozy. Definitely will return! Highly recommend!
Great place to get together with friends, the menu is impressive, the food delicious, and the patio was the perfect place to visit. The location is off the beaten path but easy to find.
Kayla our server was exceptional! Excellent food!
Excellent food! Wonderful patio!
The food was very good, the best I’ve had there. The inside seating area is very noisy, but the hostess and staff were very friendly and efficient. I will be back.
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.
We really enjoy Republic - eat there on a regular basis. The one thing that would get that extra star is a couple of vegan options; e.g., grilled cauliflower steak/portobello mushrooms, a grilled veg side and a salad or two that were fully vegan would not require a lot of extra prep, expensive perishable ingredients, or frig storage space. I am an omnivore - love the steak frites and the pan-seared chicken breast - but have some vegan friends who have difficulty dining out.
The reasons we keep coming back to Republic are the consistent good food, good price to value and excellent service. Expanding the menu to add a few vegan options would only improve things and bring us back even more often.
We went for our anniversary! We enjoyed it. The Fender Bender is a great drink. The burger with fried egg was my husband favorite. I have the pan seared chicken and I loved the mashed potatoes and green beans. We will be back soon.
Had the house salad and the bourbon glazed meatballs. Both were very delicious. Service was okay. Waitress did not know the menu well and struggled with helping me pick a beer. But I give them some leeway knowing they were probably short-staffed, it was a busy Sat night and the waitress may have been brand new. But the staff is always friendly.
The place is very lively. Can carry on a conversation, but if you're looking for a quiet meal this is not the place. Overall this place is a hidden gem that I always enjoy.
The food and drinks were great and so was our service. Loved the patio!
Definitely must make reservations!!
The food and drinks were really good and the staff was very accommodating to our group of 6 even though they were really busy.
