About Searsucker Austin

Searsucker embodies the social dining experience by encouraging guests to come early and stay late.

Inspired by the simplicity, relaxed and feel-good vibe of the seersucker fabric, Chef Brian Malarkey created a space that invites patrons to relax and enjoy. The airy design features a glass enclosed kitchen, a lounge space with comfortable seating and a lively bar area. Patrons can watch the action, chat without boundaries and feel as if they’re at a friend’s dinner party rather than a restaurant.

Chef Brian Malarkey’s menus are both serious and fun, with creative twists on New American Classics. Dishes range from shared plates and small bites ideal for the whole table, to farm and ocean dishes that you’ll want to keep all to yourself.

Open for Dinner, Weekend Brunch and Happy Hour.

Food was decent with the exception of the cheese plate which was a complete joke for $18... 2 pieces of bread and 4 small slices of cheese... Overall it was a fine place, but I would not go out of my way to go back.

I held a business dinner here for 9 people. It was great. The service was impeccable and the food was great. Everything was very well prepared. The biscuits with honey and butter were a huge hit with the group!

The restaurant was relatively empty on a Wednesday night. Had it been any busier this review would probably look very different. It is a noisy venue because of the floors, high ceiling, etc so sitting in the same spot on a busy night would have made it very difficult to hear anything as we were sitting in an area that would have a lot of people walking by and talking around us on a busy night. Keep that in mind for scheduling.

Overall, a great experience and not too expensive. We spent $380 prior to tip for at 8 appetizers and meals for everyone.

Went there for brunch on New Year's Day. The music was way too loud. The noise level would make sense if we were there for dinner, but for brunch it was just obnoxious. We struggled to hear each other over the music. We asked for the sound to be turned down but it never was.

Would not recommend. HORRIBLE service. I struggle to think of a time I've had to ask for water or silverware so many times, cleared my own plates, waited so long for everyone to be served, etc. Absolute waste of money. Regret going here.

New Years Eve dinner reservation. Lovely space with pleasant background music playing. The ambiance was diminished, however, by the TV’s over the bar, playing AFV....really? There were several service hiccups and my online reservation did not make clear that only the NYE Tasting menu would be available. Would probably still try Searsucker again if I had a chance.

We celebrated my birthday here, our first time eating here. The reservation slot was at 9:45pm, but the kitchen closes at 10, so I'm not sue why they'd have this timeslot as an option. We're lucky we arrived early. the hostess sat us in yr middle of the room, even though we requested to be seated elsewhere in our reservation request... luckily our waiter moved us when we asked with no hesitation! The food is pricy and some of the items we tried were worth it, while others were NOT. We had the biscuits (they were the densest things I've ever seen and not worth getting); the tuna tartare (yummy); fried pickles (good but a bit too pricy); pork belly roulade (amazing); and then shared the scallops entree (so awful and a waste of 35 bucks). I tried to add photos but they were too big for posting here. 😒 Our waiter was awesome!

Our server was friendly and helpful and got our order correct. My husband and I shared 5 different small plates/non-entrees and all were delicious and presented well.
My only negative is that the art on the walls is a little weird.

We had a group of 9 girls for a bachelorette brunch and the restaurant was perfect for a group our size. Our server was super accommodating, since several people had to leave early to catch a flight, and let us order in separate groups. There were several other sizeable groups at the same time and I was pleasantly surprised at the overall sound level. The chilaquiles were delicious! And the avocado toast was a hit too after a weekend of excess.

All the food came out at once which led me to believe it was all sitting back there waiting to be served. Three of the five dishes ordered were barely room temperature, and the dishes ordered were not serve cold dishes. Taste of food items was good but I just expected hot food. Service, attentiveness, ambiance, drinks, etc. were all good. I’d like to return for a second visit to see any improvements.

Post-industrial building that felt vibrant and cozy on a cool fall night. Had a great time and ate the full range of the menu (drinks, appetizers, entree's and dessert). Innovate versions of foods I am familiar with. We had a drink spilled early on, and service (multiple people involved) never missed a beat in helping mop it up and getting things back in order. We will go back and try it again.

Searsucker is a wide-open space with a limited but well-procured, and flexible, menu. The service is very friendly and mostly attentive and polished. The food is fresh though options somewhat limited. Ambiance is nice, huge-open space and nice bar set-up. Prices fair to value and venue. Convenient parking (or valet next door at night).

A friend gave us a gift card and we had not been to Seersucker before. My wife and I have "date night" every Friday so we got a reservation through Opentable. My reservation was confirmed and a reminder email sent before the date. We arrived and were seated immediately in front of window open to the street - exactly what we requested. The service was fast, the waiter made good suggestions and answered questions. The food was great! His wine suggestion was too. Overall, we loved the experience and recommend it for older folks like us (60's) and the young crowd.

Since I was eating alone I sat at the bar where the full menu is offered. The fruit infused liquor, house cocktails were very good. I enjoyed three different ones during my dinner. My dinner included their House made spicy pickles, Beet & Burrata on salad/toast, Pork Belly (with Poached Egg and Hollandaise) and Squid (with Lime Creme Fraiche). Everything was very good as well as the service.
