Great for food and the patio is great bar scene

a great spot stuck on 71 west. parking is bad, but they do valet. The food and drinks are great. have eaten here three times out on the patio, so it seems you can get a seat there. Inside may be a wait

Ruby Trout is to be cooked until opaque and flaky, according to at least 3 sources on the internet... not jelly textured like Salmon. When I requested that the trout be cooked through... the waiter lectured me on what Ruby Trout was. In front of others, he told me that I need to understand that Ruby Trout is red in... More

Love this place, we have visited their north Round Rock location too and it is equally yum. We had the premium steak tacos, fish tacos, and chicken portabello entrée. All were beyond delicious and high quality. This place is pricy for us so it is a treat, but we always feel like we have gotten our moneys worth. The pimento... More

The Oak Hill location is the original Jack Allen's location, which has since opened two other locations in Round Rock and Davenport near the 360 Bridge. The place is bustling most nights both in the dining room and at the bar. My wife reports that the pumpkin seed goat cheese pesto chicken was juicy and delicious. I ordered the steak... More

My daughter asked me which of the basic Texas food groups did I miss, and I included "chicken fried steak." She chose Jack Allen's as the place to go. I had the signature marquarita up, average, but a fair price. The chicken fries steak served over mashed potatos w mixed veggies was one of the best that I have had... More

My friends from Austin took me to dinner here and it was a great experience. Somehow the reservation was put on the wrong date and the hostess was super nice and sat us right away, even though it was a busy night. My above mentioned dinner was great and the service was good.
