We went to see GLove & SS followed by the Yonder Mountain String Band. Of course both acts were incredible, but gonna focus on the venue. The checkin process was easy as you got tickets at the window and a brief wanding/purse search before getting...More

During a work trip we chose this place based on the name (they sell Stubb's BBQ Sauce in the grocery store). The server greeted our table with waters and a big smile. He was fantastic! Potato Skins appetizer was good. Disappointed with their mashed potatoes...More

Great atmosphere and food to match. Fast good service. Was pretty slow on a Monday night in December but looks like a great place on a summer evening for live music and cold beer

Fun place to see a concert. Not too big. All standing unless you score a spot on a wall. If you insist on seeing the stage in full, this is not the best got that. All in all, a fun atmosphere with good beer selection...More

Having eaten at some of the finest BBQ joints in the country, Stubb's in Austin was not very good. The only thing I can talk positively about was the collard greens. Everything else was subpar. The brisket was dry and the pork ribs were fatty....More

This review is for Stubb's as an entertainment venue, not for the restaurant itself, where we did not eat. We came here recently for an evening concert and it was a great experience. The viewing area for the stage is relatively flat, so the stage...More
