Unpleasant local sodas and bottled beer put a damper on what was otherwise a perfectly acceptable meal.

Excellent! Business dinner, we all enjoyed it very much. Highly recommend the T-bone, blackened redfish, and bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin meals.

Food was excellent and service great. . Choices for Chardonnay are limited and expensive - not good value. Wish they still served the miniature cornbread

Really good. We went during happy hour and took advantage of the $7 apps and drinks. Pretty great deal for the food quality and portions. We recommend go get there closer to 5pm (opening) because the bar area filled QUICK.

Wasn’t that all impressed. The waitress was overwhelmed by a table of 20 plus. Didn’t see much help until our meal was served. The steak was nothing to write home about.

The food was mediocre, but all the staff were great. Ordered burger and the trout. Burger wasn't seasoned enough and trout was a little dry. Truffle fries were good.

Good is outstanding! Server was very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was that everything took a very long time. I asked about a wine when we first got there but I didn’t get it until the end of my meal. We were there for over 3 hours, so don’t make any plans afterwards!

This restaurant is always spectacular! Be sure to make a reservation so you don't have to wait! Everything was wonderful: the server, the ambiance, the food was sooo good! My wife and I split the 22oz Ribeye with two sides and an appetizer and it was plenty enough for us.

Great food, very large portions and great value. Only knock is that part of Austin has gotten pretty run down with a major homeless population near the restaurant. The ambiance inside was great and overall a great meal

We found it to be a bit warm. Not sure if this is a normal part of this location or if they were having A/C issues. Also they were out of mushrooms and with such a limited list of sides this was disappointing. Not sure we would go back to this location. Always have had a good experience at the North Austin location.
