    Living in North Texas for over 15 years, Bob's Steak and Chop is a go to steak house. The original on Lemon Ave. is almost unbeatable as well as the location opened in Plano only a few years ago. I have never had a bad meal at Bob's...until I went to the Austin location. I will not comment on the cocktail/drink prices (fairly expensive but a 200%+ markup on alcohol is not uncommon) except for the price on whiskey. My goodness, $35 for a glass of Eagle Rare? Again, this is not my gripe. My biggest issue is the steak that I ordered. I was not too hungry and my wife wanted a lobster tail, so we split the surf/turf (6 oz of filet/lobster tail). My wife cut into the steak, looked at me and said "you are not going to like this." The steak was ordered medium-rare. It came out medium-well (no pink). I sent it back as the waiter looked dejected and did not understand why I would send it back. We were told that it would take a few minutes to make right (understood). Roughly 20 minutes later, the waiter brought out two 6oz cuts (nice, but not necessary). The issue at this point (and after waiting 20 minutes) was the steaks came out rare. There was certainly a cold and a rich red center. We politely nodded in begrudged acceptance because we would not be sending another steak back. It was only after we left that my wife commented on the rubbery consistancy of the lobster tail. As my wife and I discussed the experience, we both said we were not mad, just extremely disappointed especially knowing our previous experiences at North Texas Bob's. Our total bill was $200 (each had a glass of wine and a cocktail). We really felt cheated out of a quality dining experience. This location certainly needs to step up their quality control. Maybe they had a new person on steaks, but there is no reason that we should have to send a steak back once (let alone twice) at a steakhouse like Bob's. Certainly a disappointing experience.

    We were disappointed in our experience at Bob’s. We go to the Plano location all the time and this experience is nothing like what we experience in Plano. The steak was over cooked and burnt and the signature carrot was cold and undercooked. It was not busy so we were surprised by the lack of consistency from such a well known steakhouse.

    The service was outstanding and began with our hostess helping out by charging my phone. Then we sat at bar to wait for table. The bar staff were so pleasant. When our table was ready our waiter was perfect. He made us feel like we were the only patrons. Food steak - Kansas city strip. Taste was okay but cut was not good. Tough and gristle all over. A unwelcome surprise. The other steak - bone in ribeye - what a delight - flavorful and tender. Sides - bakers were good-a bit more salt would have been better. The appetizer -bacon wrapped shrimp was great. The winner here was the atmosphere and the staff. Thank you! I will try again with the steak.

    While the bone in NY strip steak was flavorful, it was far from a prime cut of beef, either that or I had a very dull steak knife. My colleague who had the same cut also had struggled to cut the steak into reasonable bite sizes.

    I had friends visiting from out of town, and they wanted to go out for steaks. Naturally I told them that Bob’s was my favorite steak house in Austin. Unfortunately the evening was pretty frustrating and I was a bit embarrassed with my recommendation of Bob’s: The room was ice cold. We had to throw out jackets and scarves on as we waited for our food. The frigid temperature in the room was a topic of conversation in the room, and looking around we were not the only table effected. The wait was also pretty absurd. We had a 7pm reservation, and had our orders in by 7.30, but the food didn’t arrive till just after 8.30. Thats a long time to be sitting in the cold, with no food. The food itself was pretty amazing once it came, but overall, pretty disappointing and — again — I feel bad for reccommend if this for my friend’s visit to Austin.

    Shrimp was over cooked on the scampi dishes. Snapper was over saturated with the sauce. The wine was great and Amanda our server was good. We have just had better food in the past at Bob’s steakhouse.

    I went on a weekend trip with 7 of my friends and we decided that Saturday night, we were going to treat ourselves to a luxurious dinner. We searched up the fanciest restaurants in Austin and we found Bob’s, and what a great decision making the reservation was. The best employees and ambiance made the experience unforgettable and I will definitely return.

    Bob's has been a long time favorite restaurant of mine in Austin for years. However, it didn't meet their long time reputation last night. There was four of us and each of our steaks were over cook and tough. We all ordered Medium rare steaks and got medium well to well. The quality of beef was not what my previous trips had experienced. The wine and service was great but with beef prices like that .. I expect fantastic quality and cooked to perfection. No one wants over cooked beef. Unfortunately the evening was a disappointment.

    Delightful experience altogether. I am a beef snob and was satiated in every way. The filet was perfection. As well, I'm an iced tea snob and it too was perfect. The sides were delicious with the pan-fried potatoes and gravy. The wait staff was exceptional as was the ambiance. I also love a booth. Highly recommend it and will be back. Easy to find for an out-of-towner. The reservation app is also very user-friendly. Thank you for a marvelous experience!
