My wife and I went to Republic Texas Tavern and had a wonderful meal.. We asked for Sara as our server since she was so good last time we were there. She was fabulous again. She has just the right touch of being there when you need her, but not being intrusive. We would highly recommend her.
The meals were excellent. My wife started with a wedge salad and it was excellent. I had the Pepper Jack Tots which had just the right amount of spice. My wife had the Pork Milanese for an entre. It was not only a very good choice, but it was a large portion which she thoroughly enjoyed. I has the Ribeye Chicken Fried Steak which was , also, a large and tasty portion.
We will be going back soon.

The decor is perfect for this very needed north Dallas restaurant.

The service and food were totally on-point. We were tempted to order every appetizer on the menu. The deviled eggs and the meat board were both memorable. We definitely plan to get both again.

The wait staff is great about being attentive but not bothersome and the prices make this a great go-to restaurant for weekdays!!

CJ took excellent care of us. Cute pub that resembles a lounge atmosphere. Everything we ate was delicious and beautifully presented. They have a huge bourbon selection. A little gem in Preston Hollow!

My wife and I really love this place. It is a little noisy but the food is delicious and the service pretty good, allowing for the fact that they are a little understaffed as most restaurants are these days. I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf with Bourbon BBQ Glaze, Yukon Gold Mash & Crispy Onion Rings. It was delicious. My wife had the Texas Chicken Lettuce Wrapp which was, by her account, also delicious. She had the Aviation cocktail which she really enjoyed and I had a vodka martini with a twist which I enjoyed. All in all it was a great evening.

Excellent service. Wedge was tweaked for me with colossal shrimp but made with the Chili lime season and fried. Perfect! Hibiscus jalapeno Margarita was a hit

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.

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.
