Beautiful, Good Dining, Just go for Lunch or Dinner Though, Not Much Else to Do

Beautiful area. This will be an up and coming area of Dallas. I went to a restaurant and had all-you-can-eat catfish. Nice restaurants in the area. Not much else to do here... read more

West End Historic District used to be a great place to visit, but several of the restaurants have closed up, the old several story shots closed up, and it's not known to be the safest area of Dallas.

Beautiful area. This will be an up and coming area of Dallas. I went to a restaurant and had all-you-can-eat catfish. Nice restaurants in the area. Not much else to do here, so don't plan on doing anything else here except for having lunch or dinner. I also passed by a Segway group going on there.

25 years ago the west end was a thriving place, if only for tourists. Whatever the case many buildings are no longer occupied and a few of the better restaurants have disappeared. Part of the reason was probably the lack of security in parking areas adjacent to the area. Plus, there are just so many better places to go in... More

I walked through here on a Sunday afternoon just returning to my car from a schlep from the Dallas Art Museum. There were several restaurants that were closed, which just seemed odd. Maybe this was more of a week day place for local office workers? Overall seemed a bit dead. Went into the boot/hat place - everyone was friendly. The... More

The West End Historic District has many interesting things to do and see - many unique shops, fantastic restaurants... There's always something new to do in the West End.

Everything worth seeing in the historic west end is within walking distance, so if you're willing and able I would skip the expensive tours, pull out your smart phone, and google information about the attractions. There is plenty to see and do so give yourself plenty of time to enjoy it all. You can do as little or as much... More

Stopped here for a quick walk and to get some small remembrances of my first trip to Dallas. Good place to get a quick bite to eat, too. Some fun historic sights. I felt safe during the day and am glad I visited

We walked through here after driving through. Its nice to see the historic area. Lots of little shops and restaurants. The history of Dallas is amazing and this is something worth a quick stop at minimum.
