The atmosphere was great, the staff helpful and the food was delicious. Tried the pork three ways and it was like taking a bath in pork - in a good way. My friends had delicious meals as well.

The staff was great, the food was great, the atmosphere was too. The popcorn starter on the tables was unique along with the jalapeño corn muffins.

A great gathering place for dinner prior to visiting Esther's Follies. Park you car, enjoy your dins, then take a short walk to Esther's. Great food and ambiance.

Great place to meet friends or colleagues near downtown Austin. Nice, eclectic menu. Fresh ingredients, nicely prepared and presented. Staff courteous and attentive. Valet parking is worth it!

We ate in the area they said was on the patio but it was heated and comfortable. Service was very good. The waiter spent time giving us a history of the property. Food is very good. I had the pimento cheese burger and it was very well done. Portions are large enough to split.

Couldn't fault this place. Warm welcome, really friendly staff, they couldn't do enough for you. Great drinks menu - we had a lovely local beer and cider. Followed up with an excellent fajita salad and corn bread. Menu had a nice choice of different things (the burger looked amazing although we didn't try it)

This restaurant was recommended by an Austenite and also by someone who had recently eaten there. She said she takes out-of-Towners there. No reservations are taken; however, the young lady who answered the phone, suggested that we get there around 6pm to avoid the biggest crowds. And, she said, there are two bars in which to wait.

I had the blackened catfish and it was crazy good. Wish I had more time to spend in Austin to come back here as much as possible. The parking can seem difficult but there's a parking garage about one block away so no problem.
