Both of my sons were in town and I wanted us to have a special night out. Ranch 616 was perfect! Everything was delicious, from the cocktails to the appetizers to our entrees. We will definitely return!
The Autumn Water and the Brush Fire drinks were amazing!!! Crab cake appetizer- the bomb!!!
The food is awesome. Steak tenderloin melts in your mouth. Excellent quality of steak. Ordered it medium rare and it was so tender that I could cut it with a fork. Cudos to the chef. Best Valentines dinner ever
It was our first visit to Ranch 616. We arrived for our 12:30 reservation and had to wait about 10 minutes for a table - no big deal, really. Once we were seated, our waiter was prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable. We ordered a wonderful fried oyster and calamari appetizer, then each had salads for lunch. The food was wonderful and the prices were very reasonable. When the check came we noticed that the waiter had omitted the appetizer (about $13). When we brought it to his attention, he remarked that since our reservation was a little delayed it was on the house! We will definitely be back!
Restaurant was very loud compared to my visits prior. Food was not as good compared to previous visits.
Yummy food, fun spot!
Had lunch on Friday, January 9th. I’ve been there 9-10 times over the last six years. Our service/waitress was great: charming and knowledgeable of the menu. Unfortunately the food didn’t match up. I had the fried trout sandwich with a side salad. The bread was not fresh and the sandwich was dry. Also, the kitchen must have run out of salad dressing, because all three of us had to ask for more. Maybe it was an off day.
Really good food and original margaritas!! Our party of 5 enjoyed the experience!
Great food great service
Food and service were off the charts outstanding!!!
It's nice to see an older restaurant doing great with all the changes in dining in Austin. Haven't been to Ranch 616 in years and now don't know why! 616 has been open for years and has always been great, menu is still creative but with a definite Texas feel and interior is just as Texas quirky as it's always been. Definitely will be added back to our list of local favorites. Quail two ways, crispy oysters, chicken fried tenderloin and some of the best green beans we've had anywhere.
Great restaurant. Very impressed because manager called earlier in the day to see if we would like to come a little earlier so that we weren't rushed. Open Table gave us 1 1/2 hours before the next reservation, but he has found that some like a little more time to relax and visit. I've never received a call like this and really appreciated it. He was right! We will be back.
Awesome spot, always a great start to the night -
It was a slower night than normal so it was much quieter than normal. Great food and fabulous service!
We will be back. Great place for the family. Lots of options on the menu and everything we had was good. The specials are way overpriced though. Stick to the regular menu and you’ll do fine!
Loved the trout on the menu, my wife and son were also impressed we will be back
The food was absolutely delicious but the hostess was incredibly rude to us. I booked a reservation for a business occasion for six people. The table they assigned us was way too small for six adults. We asked the waitress if we could move to another booth since the restaurant was basically empty. She said yes and then the hostess came over and griped us out and made us move back to our table because apparently that table was booked in over an hour from that time. Then someone else came over and allowed us to move to a third table that was larger. The second booth we moved to was never occupied while we were there. Considering I booked it for a business dinner with a new client it was kind of a disaster. I definitely won’t ever do a business dinner there again.
We love the quirky Texas ambience and the food here. It's a favorite that has never disappointed.
Great food and great atmosphere. So much fun!
So much fun! Definitely a fun place to go with friends - service was excellent, food was good (pretty heavy), great place to go with friends before hitting the nearby bars.
If you have a birthday, be sure to ask for the special dessert.....worth a photo.
Very loud! Couldn’t have a conversation. Several large tables with many folks drinking to excess.
First visit, and we will be back. Great food, very knowledgeable waiter, and all round good experience
Ranch 616 is always fun. The food was great and our waiter very attentive. It’s a great place to take out of town guests to get a feel of Austin.
Walked in and immediate was seated at the table with zero wait! We are usually on a tight schedule so open table is amazing!! We love open table, and alway love ranch 616’s hospitality and good vibes!
I always love coming here! Amazing food and the coolest atmosphere. Thank you!
We went here for NYE as we typically do. We ordered the crab and lobster quesadilla and it was delicious. Then my boyfriend ordered the flank steak medium rare, and I ordered the lamb chops. The flank steak was over cooked, which is disappointing for a place know for their meats. My lamb chops were delicious! I could have done with a slightly for savory flavor, but they were made to perfection.
Awesome restaurant and vibe. Great location one block north of W. 6th scene. Great food & drinks, fun DJ playing cool music, small, quaint restaurant with funky Austin vibe. Cool outdoor dining as well.
So loud, but always so so good!!!
