The BackYard at Waller Creek
Dinner: 4pm-11pm (midnight Saturday & Sunday)
Brunch: 11am-3pm (Sunday Only)
This is just eating at a hotel. So disappointed in my research skills...
We arrived at the restaurant where no employee was present at either the bar or the restaurant. It was 6:30 pm. When we tried to contact someone on the phone to cancel the reservation with Open Table we got a lengthy voicemail and never could cancel so we were locked out of Open Table and couldn’t make a reservation somewhere else. This was not good. We won’t be back and won’t recommend it to anyone.
We went to the BackYard for Mother's Day...and it was not bad. I hesitate to write this review, because I think this restaurant would be great for the music shows that it sometimes hosts, which presumably take place in the evening. The stage is nice and the sound is excellent. But at high noon the pergola and such were completely inadequate for blocking the sun -- it was sweltering so much that most of the other diners were hiding on the shaded couches at the edge of the yard. Also, service got a little overwhelmed -- we had no coffee for about 30 minutes. But I would come back for the right event -- one at night, maybe.
They were very accommodating to our large party and time schedule. Food was good and very friendly and attentive staff.
It was horrible all around
The BackYard at Waller Creek was solid, especially for a hotel restaurant. Had the local Austin flavor which I appreciated.
The service was horrible. The manager did not honor the open table reservation. Very crowed and very rude service. By all means avoid this place.
It was New Year’s Eve. We had a large group so it was hard to find something. Food was good. It was very quiet. Service was rather slow.
We were in town for Christmas and looking for a place to have Christmas Dinner. Many choices near our hotel were already booked so we decided to venture downtown and found this restaurant available on Open Table. They were hosting a Christmas Special that was a little vague on the site. We went expecting a more Traditional Christmas Fare, and that was not to be. However the food they had was very good. We both ended up having the Strip Steak, and Peppermint Cheesecake for me, my wife had the Strip Steak with a decadent Chocolate cake. We both had the Salad for our first course. Each course came paired with wines . We were very pleased with our food and thought the salad was absolutely amazing.
Food was pretty good. They had no idea we were coming even though our reservation was confirmed twice through Open Table via text.
Waitress gave me the wrong check and it took a long time to get the correct one.
