Nice find in The Woodlands. Good food at reasonable prices. Service was more than adequate. I do not ordinarily start a review with side dishes, but the Jalapeno Creamed Corn and the Sweet Potato Cakes are to die for! I had the special Stuffed Pork Chop that was more than I could eat. My wife the Chicken Woodlands, which was delicious. Quiet at noon and easy to get a table, inside or out. Good bar and our bartender definitely knew his stuff.

Amazing food, always fresh, great patio/location, however there seems to be a high turnover of wait staff, so from eating here at a minimum once a week, the wait staff is nice enough, however they do not stay on top of when you beverage is empty, or have full knowledge of the menu items.

It was my first time and definitely won't be my last. Very happening restaurant in a strip center in The Woodlands. We came on a Thursday night. Reservations are a must. The server was very friendly. I had the chicken Woodlands and strawberry shortcake. Delicious- highly recommend both. Great experience.

Our server was great, didn’t hover and was really helpful. We started with the coconut shrimp, they were large but had a chlorine smell/taste to them. My husband enjoyed his burger, I had the lasagne which was way too large a portion, quite salty and had a random sausage on the side. A smaller slice of lasagne with the garlic bread and a side caesar would have made more sense. Overall it was just OK, had better meals there.

We’re pleased to report this was a pleasant experience. Based on our last couple of visits, we found things were slipping. Thursday night crowd has picked back up. Live music on the patio, tables still nicely distanced for COVID and food was back up to previous outstanding standard.

Value for your money. I had a hamburger for ~ $12, and at other places I have paid $16. What I didn't like was the absence of masks on the wait staff. Greeters and receptionists wore masks, but the manager and the wait staff did not. This will probably deter us from coming back.

My wife and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary at the Republic Grille. Because I had made reservations through Open Table and mentioned the occasion, the staff were aware of our anniversary and made our visit extra special. The Republic Grille has long been a favorite, but we hadn't visited in quite some time due to staying socially distanced over the past year. As in the past, the food is/was excellent. The Chicken Woodlands is always a hit, and my wife's order of chicken fried chicken was really good. Everything was well cooked and presented, and the sides were lovely as well. In the end, they presented us with a signed anniversary card and a nice dessert- it was really fantastic. Attention to detail and good food will keep us coming back. Reasonable pricing is a bonus! Thank you.
