I eat here often, usually for business lunches. The food is great and the menu changes from time to time. The menu is Texas classics and comfort food with a nouveau twist. Our service was a bit inattentive for lunch, but everyone is always friendly. Overall great food and great place, it's a top restaurant in Dallas.

Service was poor. Waitress had no interest in telling us about the options, or really serving us.

Food was disappointing. It felt like the entire menu was well thought out, but poorly executed. Deviled eggs were delicious, but the biscuits that came with my chicken were incredibly dry. My wife's chicken fried steak was average. The cobbler for dessert used peaches that weren't ripe, and a very dry biscuit for the crust.

I hope this was an off night, because I saw the menu and was VERY excited about the dishes, but it just didn't seem to click.

We started with the trio of dips which were all good. And the deviled eggs were excellent. The menu of entrees is limited and they were out of my choice—striped bass—early in the evening. This was 7:30 on a Saturday when options should have been plentiful. That was disappointing. Strike one! My husband’s pork chop was not hot when it arrived at the table. The waiter,who was very good, took it back but when it was returned it was no better. My husband’s main complaint with restaurants is food that is not hot. So, strike two! The waiter suggested the chicken sliders as an entree and said they were spicy. I was warned, so I cant be too upset, but they were VERY SPICY. Beware. Not sure they reached Strike Three, but we are not tempted to return.

I was totally underwhelmed with this restaurant. The Stephan Pyles name carries a lot of weight in the Dallas restaurant market. We arrived at 6:50 for our 7:00 reservation and from there the experience was downhill all the way. We waited at least 20 minutes for our waitress to take our drink order, and at least another 10 minutes for our drinks to show up. I ordered the striped bass only to have our waitress come back 10 minutes later to say they were out of the bass. What? It’s not like we were there at 9 PM. How does a restaurant of this caliber run out of something that early in the evening? I reordered the salmon and asked for an order of broccolini rather than the southwest Caesar salad I had ordered to go with the bass. Guess what showed up, the canceled Caesar salad. The waitress, I believe her name was Shantae never came back to ask if we wanted additional drinks, but did ask if we wanted dessert. No! by this time I was fed up with the entire experience and will not be back. Someone needs to let S.P. know that this restaurant does not live up to his overhyped brand! To top it off I got a message from Open Table that we didn’t show up for our reservation. WTH???

We went for a birthday celebration and were excited after seeing Chef Pyles on tv promoting the restaurant. On a Friday night at 7, only a handful of tables were seated.

The waiter was friendly and the manager also greeted us at the table. They could not have been nicer. The food was mediocre at best. We had the honey fried chicken. There was no honey taste at all and an odd seasoning to the chicken (like a hint of clove) that didn’t appeal to us.
We also had the buffalo chicken fried steak. It was served in strips over masked potatoes with gravy. The fact that green peas were mixed in with the gravy and poured over everything was also not appealing. (They would have been great on the side of the plate.) We also had the Caesar salad, which is beautifully presented in a Parmesan cheese“”bowl”. The leaves are left whole, dressed and then inserted into the tall Parmesan cup and resembles a pineapple. (I had never seen that presentation before and it was beautiful.) The croutons, however, were cornmeal based and very heavy and tasted flat. The grilled chicken had another odd spice flavoring that I couldn’t identify but was off putting. (We didn’t finish this either.) The bright points were the Shiner Bock bread, which was very good, and the bbq chicharones.

Overall, not a great culinary experience for the money or the drive to downtown Dallas.

We were visiting Dallas and made a reservation for a Sunday night. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that there was a special "Sunday Supper" menu. With this menu, you get to sample many of their specialties. The Hell's eggs are really different and delicious, and we loved the fried chicken. Service was great and we loved the live music. Felt like a real Texas experience.

First time to this restaurant and was quite impressed! Elizabeth, our waitress, was OUTSTANDING! The chef heard it was our first time and came out personally and brought us the devilled eggs to sample. They were DELISH although a bit spicy for me but delish nonetheless. The puffed bread appetizer was pretty good.
Main course, we had the chicken fried buffalo steak -AMAZING! Bacon wrapped meatloaf - not that flavorful to me.
Also please have the watermelon drink. You'll thank me later!!

My wife and I had a great time. We started off our evening at the bar, and Happy Hour was still happening (ending at 7:00pm). We were then escorted to our table, but were unfortunately told the Happy Hour prices were only good at the bar. So I went up to the bar to order my cocktail. Just thought it was a little weird that Happy Hour pricing didn't extend to the entire restaurant.

Previously always great service, but there was a struggle today. While our main waitress was good, we did have to ask four times for lemons for our out-of-town guest. Also, when we ordered dessert, we were told the peach & berry cobbler raspberries, but in fact included cherries, which were very tart. When we arrived, photography flashes were going off as they were photographing the chef, so that was a little disturbing, since we were seated nearby. Again, we have always had great experiences and enjoyed the food, but this time was just an off day.
