We ate lunch here and it's a nice atmosphere. I had the Chicken fried NY strip and it was alright. The green chili sauce was a great touch to the mashed potatoes. The menu is small but a nice place to spot for dinner or lunch.

We have visited and loved Jack Allens for years now. They've opened two new jack Allens, and a new seafood restaurant called Salt Traders in Round Rock. Today, my husband and I leave for a year abroad, and chose Jack Allens as our last US dining experience. Only happiness here. Try the guacamole, burgers, ruby trout salad and the margaritas!...

Excellent salads. My friend has severe food allergies and the staff went out of their way to make sure the foods didn't contain any of the harmful ingredients. We also had not seen each other in some time and we were encouraged to take our time and visit.

I eat at this place at least once/week. I'll call it in and they bring it out to me when valet parking is available. I've eaten just about everything on the menu but my 'go to' favs are the Fat Jack burger, medium rare with sweet potato fries. I always get the Fancy Country Club Chicken salad to eat the... More

We had an amazing meal. The service was great. Everyone was so nice and friendly. We had the quail appetizer (yum), house salad (very fresh) and the chicken fried beef rib(wow). The place is big and the patio is really nice.

Great food and surroundings and staff. Location hard to beat...unless you live in Round Rock. Small plates are sufficient for any visit. Definitely worth the trip.

Met another couple for dinner. We had never been before so made a reservation for a Monday night, requesting a table by the gorgeous green belt we'd heard about. Arrived before our friends to find reservations would not have been needed as many tables were open by the green belt. However, we were taken to a drab, nondescript booth section... More

I come here from time to time--not cause the food is earth shatteringly good, it is a respite from the typical fare though. While creativity abounds with the menu choices, the end result is not great, but above average. Well, compared to the other available fare in the immediate area, Jack Allen's is a good choice. And the service is... More

I've been to 3 of the Jack Allen locations and all have been excellent. Food is wonderful, service is well done, and the restaurant has a nice vibe. It is a little noisy in there because it's all hard surfaces, which seems to be pretty common in restaurants these days. I had the ruby trout which was some of the... More

The food is fresh and tasty. Service is very good and waiters are friendly. Reservations are recommended to avoid a wait for a table. However, we have sometimes been able to get seated immediately without reservations.
