The Reata is in an old house on the main drag. We stopped here for lunch and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was outstanding. If you are in the area, don't miss this place

We had dinner here based on traveller reviews. We ordered the bacon wrapped crab stuffed jalapeños which are to die for and chicken Caesar salads. The bread that came with dinner was superb so we couldn't understand why the croutons in the salad were so...More

Mashed potatoes were too garlicky and green beans too full of bacon fat. So disappointed! The chicken breast was fair. We also thought that the service was only average.

Very authentic food and atmosphere. Portions were large and the wait staff was attentive. The decor is western, with a very old and somewhat well known mural. Bar was being refurbished, so couldn't see it.

Can't beet it, really. Great food, good service, good wine, decent beer. The Saddle pack for launch is perfect-half a salad or sandwich with a cup (huge cuo) of soup!

The food is probably the best in the area. On the pricey side but we only go a couple of times a year. Ribeye is excellent. Margaritas are tasty.

After strolling the streets and shops of Alpine, friends brought this out-of-town visitor (and family) to Reata for lunch. While many items on the menu looked good, we were steered by our host to something more typical of southwest Texas cuisine than, say, a hamburger....More

This was our third time here and it is always a pleasure to enjoy a margarita that is made from scratch instead of a mix (we asked especially for a custom Rita). The young lady who was taking reservations came to our table and was...More

Tremendous staff. Great food, but Century Bar & Grill Alpine beats Reata with their amazing chef. Be sure & make reservations. Lots of disappointed customers turned away while we dined. Absolutely we would eat here again but if only one night in Alpine we'd pick...More

The original Reata Restaurant located in the scenic Davis Mountains of west Texas offers the same fine dining and Legendary Texas Cuisine you can find at the Fort Worth location. Alpine, home to Sul Ross State University is near Texas tourist destination Big Bend National Park and the towns of Marathon, Fort Davis and Lajitas. Alpine is also a short drive from Marfa, Texas renowned both for the mysterious Marfa Lights and Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation. Reata, named after the legendary ranch in the James Dean classic movie, “Giant”, which was filmed in nearby Marfa, boasts the same high quality Southwestern dining you can find in Fort Worth. This is not food for the faint of heart, from Chicken Fried Steak to Calf Fries or the Pepper Crusted Tenderloin and Cowboy Rib Eye Steak, this is a dining experience not to miss. Today, Reata Alpine remains a true destination restaurant, attracting loyal diners from miles beyond the charming converted farmhouse where our Legendary Texas Cuisine was born.
