Dropped by for a business dinner. Had a great meal. The use of pimento cheese is interesting, yet delicious. Fantastic service, both in the restaurant and at the outdoor bar. I'd highly recommend this restaurant. If on the SW side of town, a great place for dinner. Won't be disappointed. Now going to be one of my favorite places to... More

Happy Hour is a great time to get several appetizers at a good price for the table as your meal. (Enjoyed the quesadillas and catfish most from the ones we tried.) Left just enough room for each of us to choose one of their sizable desserts!

Everything we had was wonderful: crunchy catfish appetizer, turkey burger and the crispy salmon, plus a delicious chocolate "bomb" dessert. We sampled some of the very interesting drinks and enjoyed the song track. Add to that our waiter, John, was lovely - helpful and attentive without being intrusive! We highly recommend this spot!!

Lots of choices. Had a Sunday lunch buffet. The cheese grits was ver tasty. Would avoid the potato salad next time. Fried chicken was good. Mini pancakes good too.

Went for happy hour with friends. Split appetizers and enjoyed them all! You can't go wrong by dining here. Free parking. And take home a jar of pimento cheese - you'll be happy you did!

Farm-to-table with interesting twists on down-home Texas cooking. Pimento cheese delish. Chicken fried anything with jalapeño cream gravy. The BEST Sunday Brunch in town. Choose the patio when the weather is right. Come hungry, leave happy. And, be sure to sample the sangria.

Picked this restaurant from other reviews and was not disappointed. Food was fabulous and Margaritas were marvelous. First time having trout and so so glad I tried it. Will be back next time I'm in town.

Had dinner here on our first night in Austin on our way to Lake Travis. Very pleasantly surprised by the good food, great service and general decor and ambiance of the restaurant. For sure worth a try!

The appetizers were good and the drinks were reasonable. We all had something different and were all satisfied with our meals. The service was very good but the restaurant was quite loud. You do need a reservation as there was a long wait without one. We were there at 6:45 on a Saturday night, but we did have a reservation... More

What a great variety of really fresh and very tasty dishes. We had a little wait, but it is well worth it. The quality of food and service was excellent. This was my second time here and will come back again and again.
