Initial impression was good, nice ambiance, huge bar lounge area. We were seated near the back where members Longhorn football coaching staff just happen to be so it was a great start to our evening. Our salads (Wedge and Caesar) were really good and our Filet was top notch -- so well seasoned and cooked. Our server was friendly and... More

My wife and I had dinner on December 9 after returning from a trip where we ate seafood most evenings. We wanted a really great steak. Our before dinner adult beverages were perfect, she liked the Invincible. She had the tomato soup and I had a really good wedge salad. We split the 12Oz fillet and each was cooked perfect... More

Jerry, while I am glad that you both loved your drinks, salads, and steaks, I do wish those scallops would've come out perfectly. We like to cook our scallops to a nice medium rare. We are sorry if that was undercooked for you. It does sound like you enjoyed every other aspect of you meal and we hope you give... More

The filet mignon is excellent. I have tried the filet at several other Austin steakhouses and this is my favorite. The meat is so tender and well seasoned. For starters I love the cantaloupe gazpacho. Also the heirloom tomato salad is excellent as well as their traditional wedge salad. They have some fun cocktails too. This visit was with our... More

I know it's a bold claim, but I have no reservation making it. I've been to most of the "elite" establishments and all have some shortcoming, whether it be service, consistency, ambiance -- VYS gets it done everytime. Best steak in Austin is on the menu every night too -- bone-in filet.

So I've been here twice in the past month for happy hour and the crab cake is awesome. My other favorite is the lobster rolls and you get four delectable rolls that melt in your mouth - only $10 from 5-7. An amazing deal for delicious food in a great atmosphere! Not to miss!

First let me say if your going to have a steak, plan on $40 minimum! Very expensive place. That being said, we don't have big appetites so my husband had the Chili appetizer with fries while I had the Snapper entree. Both were delicious. All sides or extras are served family style- enough for 3 people. The cocktails were also... More

We couldn't leave Austin without trying at least one steakhouse, so we all decided to try Vince Young Steakhouse.
