Food, drink, and service were all excellent, making for a convivial after-business-hours gathering. The appetizers our group shared were delicious -- especially the kale-and-bacon dip. And oh, my, those $5 cocktails during happy hour -- their Sazerac's my new go-to libation.

Staff was polite and helpful. Food was better than average. As the only thing that wasn't tasty was the fried pickled asparagus which we elected to try. Wine selection was great. Give it a try!

Just happened to stumble across this place walking back to our hotel and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was cozy in the bar off of the patio. Did not eat there the first time but came back the next day for Sunday brunch and they did not disappoint. Their brunch buffet was awesome. They had different stations with so much... More

Great location, friendly service, delicious food, and very clean (loved the lavender hand soap). Waiter even gave us some cornbread muffins to take with us! I will definitely be back to this place.

I took a client here for dinner and was very impressed. The place was packed, so that seems like it's always a good thing. We got seated relatively quickly, and the service and food were outstanding. Highly recommended!

Went here for lunch and ended up skipping dinner. Large portions, fair prices and a nice atmosphere. Half a block from the Hilton hotel.

Food was excellent a lot for the price. Service on the outside patio was slow, inside was good. There vegetarian burger was excellent.

I have eaten here several times and always make it a point to make time to eat here whenever I'm in Austin. The food is fantastic and the service is great. I love the popcorn appetizer you get when you are seated. The 3 kinds of pork sandwich is my favorite. I wish they would bring back the beer battered... More
