Fantastic!! Absolutely delicious food and drink. I had the salmon and my husband had the chicken. We both had a Mexican Donkey cocktail and they were so good (and spicy!) Cool venue. Would be great for a group. Will be back.

Great lunch menu selection. Everything was delicious. Portions were good, but not too big. Service was helpful and friendly. This was a quick business lunch. Next time, I will try them for dinner

Sat outside and the weather was perfect but too many little kids running outside the patio. I guess the strip mall location doesn’t help.
The food was tasty but some of it didn’t arrive warm, like it sat waiting for too long before being brought out to the table.

Elizabeth was the best server I have ever had. In addition to the usual wonder food, with great presentation, to have such a high quality staff attend to us in such a professional way. I wish all my dining experiences were such!

Love this place. Best bar scene in North Dallas and a menu designed by the Great Ken Rathbun. Doesn't get any better than this.

Valentine’s Day dinner was fabulous. They made the evening special with the decorations, special cocktails and menu feature. And a goody bag of candy to take home. The service was great especially for such a busy evening.

Great bar - wine prices are way off - fish dish had way to much sauce - fish wasn't fresh tasting

I'll start by saying that the food is excellent. Unfortunately the service was terrible. We had to flag down our server, not only to order drinks, apps, entrées, but ended up having to ask a different server to put in our dessert order. We practically had to waive our hands in the air to get help. Again, the food was excellent but service was non-existent. I would still recommend the restaurant for the food, in hopes that the poor service was a fluke.

We selected Republic based on positive reviews, and their willingness to take a grouo reservation. The food and service exceeded our expectations. The meat and cheese plates were awesome. Several of us had the Chicken Fried Steak. Personally the best I've ever had. Overall our entire diverse group was very pleased with everything from interesting cocktails, to a diverse selection of entrees. Attentive service. Fantastic experience!

Food was good and the Old Lancaster was excellent. I look forward to trying a sazerac at our next visit. Surprisingly, the wine list had a good selection of good Napa wines.

Friendly staff, good food and fun atmosphere. The food was good, not great, but definitely good. One order came wrong, and undercooked, but was quickly remedied and all was well. The server could have been more attentive, but we’ve had worse. The bar atmosphere and sports on made it a fun night.

They no longer have the brunch menu shown on open table or the brunch drink specials. The food was not the best, everything was “smoked” and tasted like I was eating pure smoke as if they marinate all the meat in more smoke after it’s cooked. I wouldn’t recommend.

Have been to Republic several times and each time its better than the time before. Brought some business associates...it was their first time...and they loved it. Quality of food was outstanding. Of course that is to be expected with Kent Rathbun involved! Bar scene was great and the noise level has been improved with recent additions of soundproofing and new interior wall. Our table had quail tenders (every time!!), chicken fried steak, filet, salmon, deviled eggs with bacon, roasted brussel sprouts and mac and cheese. ALL of it was wonderful. Looking forward to our next visit!

The food is masterful and really enjoy the ambiance of this place. In good weather the garage like glass doors open to make a great indoor/outdoor place to eat and have drinks. Some very delicious meals including the lunch brisket tacos keep me coming back! You won't be disappointed.

I have had 3 excellent experiences now at Republic, all very different. This was the best! It was on a Monday evening. Small crowd. Sat outdoors for a georgeous sunset. Started to mist so we came inside. Marco was an outstanding waiter. Chicken fried steak was the best we had ever had anywhere! It was just a perfect evening. Wouldn't change a thing. And yes, we will be going back again real soon!

Average food and drink like most restaurants in Dallas. The shrimp and grits were not great, but the Mac and Cheese was good as was the bread pudding. Cocktails were average too.

This restaurant has a lot of potential but is suffering from a split personality. Is it a quality restaurant with good service and great food or is it a loud noisy sports bar with good snacks. Right now the loud and noisy is winning out.

We have dined twice and had a small company event; the event was great with good food and service and universally liked. Our dinners for two were not an above average experience. The servers seemed distracted and got our drink order wrong and then kept trying to remove our plates before we were finished. there were many open tables so he waasn't trying to make room. The music was way too loud for comfortable conversation. I really want this neighborhood restaurant to succed but as of now there are more enjoyable dining experiences available.

The waitstaff apparently only takes the order then checks back occasionally. Our waiter was lucky his teammates covered him nicely. Everything took extraordinarily long to arrive, from wine to food and the warm towel after the mussels (which we had to ask for). The food was better than the rest of the experience... both visually and taste. There were two of us, and for the evening, we had the wedge, the mussels and the salmon. Wedge was beautiful and tastefully traditional but cut into 3 parts - perfect! The mussels were tasty, but beware -- spicy even for the spicy loving texan. The salmon was wonderfully paired with brussels sprouts giving it a bit of crunch.
