We came in late one night and had a couple beers. We did not try the food unfortunately. They had a good number of local beers on draft, service was good, and the bar had a nice ambiance.

I last ate here in 2005 and was rather disappointed this time. Our onion ring appetizer was bland and overly crunchy. Our entrees were a bit better, but I think I'll try another restaurant the next time I'm in Austin.

I like this restaurant for its atmosphere more than its food. The food is good, as well as the beer, but the atmosphere is great. Especially on a cold winter day sitting in front of the fireplace.

We have visited here before for lunch, but this was our first time for the brunch buffet. Coming from England we were not prepared for the generous helpings. The food was exclent. Really well cooked, plenty of choice. good value for money. What more do you want?

It is a little loud but menu is good and rustic lodge feel makes for a nice outing. Music is played outside in the back.

You'll see items like NXMW Chicken Pot Pie, and you'll know it will be familiar but with a twist that's sure keep you from thinking it's boring. It's huge portions so you might think about splitting something if you're not eating alone, or know you'll have leftovers for that midnight snack.

I went with my husband and daughter. My duck was excellent but the brussel sprouts tasted like someone dumped a shaker of salt on them. My husband's burger was good, but his fries were oversalted. My daughter's salmon was good and they substituted normal potatoes for the hot, spicy mashed. The place was yin and yang, good meat/fish and they... More

Got seated at the bar quickly. The bartender was extremely nice. The beer selection was impressive. They serve food but we just had a few beers so I can't speak to that but the vibe was nice and friendly.

When I first arrived in Austin, I stopped in for some lunch--perfectly delectable burger. Next time I took my colleague there for dinner. I ate a little light (bacon wrapped scallops app and a small Caesar salad) but it was delicious. My friend had the tuna over risotto and couldn't stop talking about how good it was. Of note is...

This is a great place with value priced meals and beverages. Easy to get to from the highway and parking is close. They also have entertainment every week.
