One block walk from Wyndham Austin. Sat outside on the patio, which has heaters. Not an oyster fan, but wife loved them. Quail and chicken fried steak with jalapeño pepper gravy was excellent. Waiter was friendly and provided excellent service!

Only a block from the Austin Wyndham. We had the Chicken Fried Filet Mignon and the Fried Oysters! Oysters were fantastic and cooked perfectly. Cocktails are on the very pricy side (13-15), but done forget to try the shooter in the jalapeno!
