Best brunch we've had in Austin so far! We always reserve a brunch for Sunday after a weekend with our Longhorn student. Mimosa was generous and served in a wide glass instead of champagne flute--awesome! Avocado toast was so yummy! We'll definitely be back!

The food was excellent. I had the “small” plate of tomato soup and grilled cheese. It was a full sandwich and full bowl of soup, so small is a misnomer. It was fabulous and comforting. We had the deviled eggs as an appetizer - tasty and they had a hint of horseradish. The Mac and cheese I think had bacon but it was nothing special. A group of 100 sorority girls came in ahead of us and our dinner took more than an hour to arrive - after we had been driving 5 hours. They should have shut down the restaurant or added staff. Our server did comp the last two drinks to add back some goodwill. Music level was just right, really nice interior design. Would definitely return.

Searsucker was fantastic! We had the brown butter fries and sticky bun to start, the fries were some of the best I’ve ever had, the sticky bun was good, but would have been better if it had been warmer. We had the avocado toast and the eggs your way both were good, but the tenderloin Benedict was one of the best meals I have ever had - the hollandaise was out of this world and the meat fell apart. Whenever I go to brunch anywhere, I get Benedict if it is on the menu and this was far and away the best one I’ve ever had. Drinks were also excellent, the bacon Bloody Mary and the fresh and so clean!

Unfortunately this trip was not good. Food was overcooked to the point the biscuit was a rock and my eggs were fried so hard they had carmelized the white/yolk.

The tiny drink was $14. The manager was kind, but didn't do enough to get us back.

The music was too much rap, especially for Easter Sunday and failed to be "background" music. We ended up leaving and going next door to have Easter Brunch.

Went for brunch on Easter Sunday. Flavors were good but execution a bit lacking. 3 of the party of 6 ordered
Biscuits and gravy. Biscuits were rock hard and cold. Duck fat gravy good eggs cooked great but other than that not successful. I had the blat was good but lacked the pork belly for the most part. Would love to try again because like I said flavors worked but need a bit of quality control.

Yikes! We went to Searsucker for brunch and it was outstanding, so we decided to try for lunch. Big mistake.
The barutta tomatoes were good. Not memorable, but good. I ordered the fish tacos. My partner ordered the crispy chicken sandwich.
My tacos were not only not good, they were terrible. The fish tasted like it had been grilled yesterday and was microwaved. It was extremely dry, cardboardy even. And there were a few bizarre French fries scattered on them. I ate one taco and left the other one.it wasn't worth the calories.
My partner also ate half of her sandwich. She said it was completely unbalanced in vinegar due to an acidy coldslaw on the salad. She also complained that the bun was not tasty either.
The most disappointing meal I've had in a long time.
To make it worse, our server was disinterested and inattentive. There were hardly any people in the shop and I had to get up and track him down for a refill. Altogether a fail.
We won't go back and suggest you try any number of the fabulous options in downtown Austin.

It was our first time here and I'm glad we decided to go! The hostess Trinity was so vibrant and nice! Our server who was also the bartender was very sweet and attentive as well. We all ordered the chilaquiles which were amazing! The flavor and just the overall presentation of it was perfect! I will definitely be coming back here!

The dishes listed on the brunch menu looked delicious but everything that came out wasn't quite... right. The sticky bun had good flavor but was dry and overdone, the toast and potatoes on the "eggs your way" dish were bland, and the fried rice in the kimchi fried rice was mushy and wet. Our wait staff was friendly and helpful.

Two positive things we can say about this place, the food delivery is Fast and the food is very good. The two of us went early on a Friday evening and will probably seated where we asked. We like a table next to the open window when the weather is nice so we can watch the people. The windows were closed when we arrive but they probably open them on our request. These are floor-to-ceiling windows. The Ambiance is nice and service is courteous so give it a try

it was nice to go to a really nice restaurant in Austin when we were from out of town - always trust listings on Open Table! The brunch menu was varied and we all had something different but all enjoyed our choices. Loved the biscuits and gravy with 2 sunnyside up eggs - the biscuits were a little sweet and very "solid" but then they soaked up the gravy and the eggs - OMG so good! If I'm every in Austin again, will definitely return!

We had a fantastic time. Everything was great from the moment we had to cancel as some of our party did not make it. They made us feel right at home. The burger was out of this world. The avocado toast may be the best I've had. Everything we tried was awesome! Thank you Searsucker!

Holy moly is this place over priced. I don't remember it being that way the first time we went, but we had a table of 8 people. We ordered several appetizers, bottles of wine (the cheapest) and then entrees and shareable sides. The food was fine, nothing to rave about. We got the check and each couple paid $240!! We don't spend that much when we go out for a nice anniversary meal. Ugh. I get that we were just eating and talking and enjoying ourselves and not asking how much everything was adding up to, but wow. Will not be going back, which is a bummer because it's a nice place and a great location.

This is the second location we have been to. The other was in Vegas, and although we like the Vegas location more, we had a great meal, less the Mac n cheese. I commented to my wife that hers is better, because this version was lackluster. The duck fries are a fantastic. The filet always cooked to perfection and short rib flavorful. The biscuits at this location are not as good but it might be a combination of ingredients and environment.

Speaking of environment, the Acoustics are terrible and seating lacks intimacy. The staff however was attentive and the bar makes truly great drinks. I highly recommend to try at least once.

Service was good and the ambiance was upbeat and pleasant. I like the lighting and the way rope is used as a decorating theme. The food was good but not great. We had beets and burata which was very good and clean tasting. It was served with a eye-dropper type of appliance that contained balsamic vinegar and it was a clever way to have people dress the salad to their own taste. Also, we had the shrimp and grits and the short ribs. Both were tasty but nothing out of the ordinary. They were heavy dishes so perhaps we should have ordered more carefully for sharing. The restaurant was not very busy so the noise level was decent.

The waitress didn’t seem to want to serve us, like we were a bother. Simple requests seemed inconvenient. My “date” couldn’t find the goat cheese in her salad and the pears weren’t fresh. Her deviled eggs weren’t great. The short ribs were the best dish. Value didn’t match price or experience.

We had heard Searsucker was a great restaurant in Austin, and it did not disappoint. The food was fabulous, the server was very attentive but not overly, and the ambience is excellent. The only consideration is the noise level - it is not too loud, but if you are looking for a very quiet restaurant, this may not be it. If you like a lively, energetic place where there is noise but you can still talk and hear, this is it.

I've been twice now. The first time, we had a lot of problems with cocktails being pretty lame. Same thing this time. But they did take one unacceptable cocktail off our bill. Their wine list is limited as well. The food is pretty good, but we finished our starters before even getting our bottle of wine. Service was very slow and disjointed. But our waitress did get 3 or 4 tables all at once. I think I probably won't make a point of going back, unless I can't get a reservation anywhere else.

It was our second time to dine at the restaurant. First time had been brunch, so we were looking forward to checking it out for dinner. Love the ambiance. Host was very welcoming. The staff had a collaborative spirit about serving tables by having several of them check in, bring food out, etc, but not over doing it, so we could enjoy each other. They elevated comfort food. The braised short rib was delicious, and the special, seafood risotto was sublime. I’d be remiss if i didn’t mention the peanut butter cheesecake. Yum! We had a lovely decadent meal. Would go back for sure.

Service was the best part. They aren't a super kid friendly restaurant, but they went out of their way to entertain and had empathy. Food was good, but heavy. Southern just isn't always our thing. Decor and vibe was positive, but confusing. We had a lively discussion on the theme- as its name made me think coastal, interior was barn like. Then it included farm animal modern art, retractable smokey glass doors- very modern, animal hide lounge furniture, and then went from Palm trees to boxwood topiaries and french bistro tables. It all meshed ok, but just felt a bit contradictory...at least enough to notice.

I cannot tell you what a wonderful experience we had at Searsucker! Aaron, our waiter, was so nice and very friendly. He hand-crafted a dessert for my wife’s birthday. The manager was equally friendly and kind. We felt as though we were regular VIP’s and it was our first experience. Certainly won’t be our last!! Well done guys!!
