Very Nice family oriented facility. Beautiful outdoor seating or enjoy unique antique indoor seating. Food is freshly prepared with eye for detail in presentation. However menu is limited for selection. Service is friendly and attentive as well.

A meal at Green Pastures is like stepping back in time. The high ceilings and creaking hardwood floors create an excellent ambiance. The menu, while not remotely avant guarde, can be counteed upon to be consistently good. The Sunday Brunch is great for families.

The grounds are beautiful near this old mansion converted to a restaurant. Look for the live peacocks. The brunch buffet is extensive, including well labeled salads, appetizers including delicious salmon, main dishes including carved prime rib, sides and desserts. Prices are high but worth the special experience. Make a reservation and check the web site before you dine. Order from... More

I know Green Pastures is considered an old Austin institution and I've dined there several times, but I've never walked out of there overly impressed with their food or service. My recent visit was probably my last. It was for lunch and the entire meal took over two and a half hours to complete and the food, from a limited... More

I got married at Green Pastures 39 years ago. We have come back to Green Pastures occasionally for dinner, and I have attended for lunch occasionally with the Austin Republican Club. So, when our 39th anniversary came up on Halloween weekend this year, we knew there was no chance we could go downtown to Chez Nous. So, we decided to... More

It was a long anticipated meeting with family, and my favorite son sweated finding the perfect place for us to enjoy superb brunch. He did extremely well obtaining reservations at this extraordinarily nice South Austin eatery, which is the main focus. It's a bit tricky to find, being pretty well hidden amongst luxurious live oaks and other growth. It was... More

First, the property is beautiful. From the moment you drive up, until you enter the restaurant, everything is amazing. Lobster tempura was perfect. Filets cooked perfectly. Creme Brûlée was the best we have ever eaten. Emily, our server provided some of the best service we ever enjoyed.

Have been here on numerous occasions but this time the food is definitely slipping in quality. Even our waiter indicated they were putting less ingredients into their recipes to make everything more streamlined and updated rather than going to the trouble of preparation that made the old recipes taste great. Skimping on ingredients that make a food taste the best... More
