We ate in the area they said was on the patio but it was heated and comfortable. Service was very good. The waiter spent time giving us a history of the property. Food is very good. I had the pimento cheese burger and it was very well done. Portions are large enough to split.

Couldn't fault this place. Warm welcome, really friendly staff, they couldn't do enough for you. Great drinks menu - we had a lovely local beer and cider. Followed up with an excellent fajita salad and corn bread. Menu had a nice choice of different things (the burger looked amazing although we didn't try it)

This restaurant was recommended by an Austenite and also by someone who had recently eaten there. She said she takes out-of-Towners there. No reservations are taken; however, the young lady who answered the phone, suggested that we get there around 6pm to avoid the biggest crowds. And, she said, there are two bars in which to wait. We arrived a... More

I had the blackened catfish and it was crazy good. Wish I had more time to spend in Austin to come back here as much as possible. The parking can seem difficult but there's a parking garage about one block away so no problem.

Four star seems to be an appropriate rating for this 6th Street restaurant. A bit noisy, good food selection, average service.

Stopped by for some dinner, found the staff attentive, food decent but perhaps a bit on the higher $ side.

Was in town for a conference. My husband and I stopped in for a vendor event. The appetizers were fantastic. We had a glass of wine. The place is beautiful, and I mean beautiful! It is classy rustic. Great outdoor seating as well. Before we left, we sat on the front porch and visited with a guy we didn't know.... More
