We offer a full lineup of signature beers brewed in-house most of which feature a crossover and collaboration of ideas and ingredients with the food made in our wood-fired kitchen. Our menu is ever-changing and a reflection of time and place, featuring a variety of local partners and farms. Likewise, our beers resonate with the seasons (or lack thereof if you’re a true Texan).
We also feature guest taps starring a few friends and favorites, a thoughtfully selected wine list and a full bar punctuated by craft cocktails inspired by the kitchen and brewing process.
We invite you to come by and stay awhile.
Grab a seat at the bar, enjoy a meal in the dining room, join a group for a special experience at The Brewer’s Table on the mezzanine level or throw back some beers on the patio. No matter your agenda, we’ve got a space, a brew and a bite (or more) to suit you.

I live in the neighborhood, so really wanted to like TBT. Our table of 4 laughed when the $12 caeser salad was presented to share. It was plated such that it took only 1/2 a small plate it was served on. Each person had 12 leaves each. The $38 scallops came with nothing else, just some juice. My chicken was pink inside and vegetables bland and also undercooked. Hope they improve, the beer was good, though but lots of other places to drink beer.

Service was slow and used plates not cleared in a timely manner. Owner/ manager stood talking near by without considering customers needs.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. There had been some confusion about my reservation (on my end) and the hostess was friendly and helped me.
I took my parents here to impress them and they loved the food selection and the beer selection.
It is in the expensive side, and it is worth what you pay for it.

Apps were OK. Entrees had issues and staff did little to address. Cold and under seasoned food are bad signs. Not going back unless for a beer.

It cannot be overstated how great this place is. The vibe, service, drinks, and value are all superb. The menu is exquisite. No one in the country is really doing what they are from a technical aspect, and their Hill Country ingredient dedication is fantastic. Spread the word. Spend your money. They’re fantastic at TBT.

We ate here on NYE. We had been previously a couple of times and always sat at the counter to see the kitchen action. Tonight we wanted to enjoy the dinner and company more than the show. Found was outstanding as usual and the beers to accompany the meal were great. Solid choice for any event.

This is not the same restaurant that it used to be. The place was almost empty at 7:30pm on a Saturday, which was a huge warning sign. Our party of 6 was seated at a high round table that had almost no light, when there was plenty of available seating in the main area where there was plenty of light. The food was unremarkable. Three of us ordered the mussels which while well cooked, had no flavor whatsoever. The broth was bland. One person ordered the beef tartare and said it was so heavily dressed/sauced that she couldn’t taste the beef. The staff were friendly but spent a lot of their time huddled together watching something on someone’s phone. I can’t blame them as the place was so empty they had nothing to do. Even the kitchen staff were milling about. It’s sad as this place used to be amazing. But we can’t justify going back for such mediocre food. I’m actually embarrassed that I took friends and family there.

Been here 4 or 5 times now. Food, drinks, service are always wonderful. It's pricey but doesn't feel overpriced, which is rare in Austin these days.

The girls working the front of the house were fantastic. Really accommodating and just really nice. One of our party was running late and they were really cool about it. The menu was thoughtful. We ordered cocktails and 5 dishes. All were very good. Not mind blowing but just really good solid food. The greens that came with my quail were my favorite part. The Brussels sprouts with the pork belly skewers were also fantastic. Unfortunately our server had a very large table he was working so we didn’t get a lot of attention. We only saw him a few times. He didn’t write down our order then had to come back and ask us what we ordered again. The women’s bathroom was also pretty gross. Maybe it was just an off night but some areas of the restaurant were just struggling. We were going to get dessert but based on the service we received for the rest of the meal it would have just been an inconvenience so we left and went somewhere else for dessert. Overall the experience was good but I don’t think we would go back. The food was just good enough but not anything to try twice with so maMy other options In Austin.

We really wanted to like the Brewer’s Table, but our experience was a little disappointing. The service was not very friendly or what we’ve come to expect from the Austin dining scene. Our waiter seemed bored, annoyed, or indifferent at every interaction. The food was good, but 9$ for 4 small slices of bread seems excessive. The service really made the experience unenjoyable

This was my sixth visit to the Brewers Table. The food has always been exciting and inventive. I still think of some of the great dishes I have had there. (venison tartare one of my favorite tartares of all time) BUT
On the last few visits I have noticed service getter slacker, got close to poor on this visit. We sat at the bar which I really like, see the chefs working, and get to preview all the dishes. All our dishes were delivered at once (bad form). We were close to finishing, but still had our empty cocktail glasses. Managed to get a beer. The Tartare was bad, could not taste the beef nor feel the texture (big bummer). Other dishes good ish but nothing to remember. Used to have interesting sides with the dishes, not so much on this night. Sixth visit could be my last, but I do have great memories from before.

Overall, our experience was good, however there are a few things that need to be pointed out.
The food plating is awkward and poorly thought out for the diner.
Our main chicken entree was ordinary.
We had to pay extra for additional chips for our sweet potato hummus dish, when only 5 were provided.
That’s totally unacceptable for a high end restaurant. Tickey tack charges on a $100 bill.
That being said, their beers are delicious, our server was great, and the pork belly is delicious.
I’d definitely go back for the beer, not sure about dining.

I have been to the restaurant many times for dinner and count it as one of my favorites in Austin this was my fist brunch.

I felt like the music was about 30% too loud, it was hard to hold a conversation and the server had to keep asking me to repeat myself because she could not hear me.

The food was good overall but the sweet potato cake with the pork was really lacking, both in flavor and texture.

Food was delicious. Pork Belly and Brussel Sprout skewers were amazing. Front of house service was a little confused upon our arrival, as we requested bar seating on our reservation, but they said they only had a table. Not a big deal at all, but just didn't know why the request was there if it wasn't translated. Overall, great drinks, huge beer selection and excellent food.

The food was very good. The beer was average to good. The service was pretty slow, which would be my only complaint. I really liked the vibe of the place though and definitely would like to go back when it is warmer and enjoy the outdoor seating area.

Second time to this restaurant. Solid in-house brewed beer. Service was tough. Our server was a nice guy, but was likely over seated or just way behind. Checked on us once throughout dinner, took about 8-minutes before even being greeted.

Caesar salad was good, we’d order that again. Sweet potato dip was good, Akaushi tartare was really good. Burger was served rare and was not offered a temp for how we would like it cooked. Didn’t have really any flavor, wouldn’t order it again.

Overall, not a good experience for Friday date night... unfortunately won’t be back for dinner.

Not a place for vegetarians, by any means! Well, unless you enjoy eating bread for dinner. The chef attempted to make a veggie plate, it tasted like cardboard.

Was a quiet night, restaurant not very full. Service was very good, friendly and efficient. Barley soup and pork belly skewers were very good as was the burger. The wings and mussels were disappointing.

Highlight was the hearth bread w roasted garlic and house butter.

Excellent atmosphere, not too loud ( wood surfaces ), excellent in house beer, service and food quality were excellent except our food came out alittle cold. They replated a new order within minutes. Portions were medium sized. The sweet potato dip - I would have left out the broccoli and added more crisp chips. Add a flight of the in-house beers.

Fried chicken was excellent! Would have preferred a piece of white meat instead of 3 pieces of dark meat. Mac and cheese had a great flavor but was a little overheated. Wine recommendation was excellent! Overall a very nice experience! Would definitely go back and try something different.
