We went to dinner here while staying at the Omni Barton Creek for a girls weekend. We were seated outside on the patio. We had shared plates of the crunchy catfish and slaw (a must have!), the burger and a few other appetizers. Everything came out hot and perfectly prepared. Nice selection of wine and mixed drinks. The service was... More

A great Austin restaurant from start to finish. It starts with the complimentary valet parking and a pleasant greeting and ends with a fantastic dessert. The decor is very unique and welcoming. Our server, Willis, was extremely personable and knowledgeable. I never had to ask for iced tea refills (very important to me). Very Texan and local choices as to... More

The thing is, there are a lot of good choices at Jack Allen but a few consistent entrees that aren't spicy would be welcome. The guacamole has always been great but tonight it had something so hot in it that I couldn't enjoy it, though others could. The chicken fried chicken was great and the steak salad. The rice and...

We enjoyed the Navajo Chicken Taco - which was a deconstructed taco of a very large portion. Lots of flavor layers. Patio was not crowded so we could easily have a conversation and be heard. Look forward to returning to try other menu items.

This is an Austin favorite. Their foods are farm to market. The quality of food and flavor is very unique. I love their Sunday brunch as well.

If you've been to Moonshine downtown Austin, it's a lot like that, only better I think. More variety on menu. We started off with the crab cake appetizers. Three large crab cakes cooked to perfection. I had the pork medallions my wife pumpkin seed pesto marinated chicken breast. The speed the meals were served was pretty amazing as well as... More

Ate there with my wife and adult children. I had the mac and cheese with chicken - the others had the chicken fried ribs, just because they could not believe that anyone would chicken fry a rib. Well, it turns out it was one rib but there was a lot of meat on that bone - closer to a bone-in... More

After a morning in the zilker park, this was a good choice for lunch. Menu is varied, portions huge, food tasty and well cooked. Our waiter was attentive, gave good advice on the menu, and had a laugh with us. We sat outside, which was noisy but that added to the ambience. Next time we come back to the U... More
