I sat down in thd first quarter of the New England Baltimore game. Had to go to the bar for my drink, asked got a menu, got it 30 minutes later. It's halfway through the 4th quarter and I've not been asked if I want to order. The one waitress I did flag down said she'd let my waitress know.... More

Our family spent December 28-January 2 in Austin. We shared many wonderful meals, moments, and memories. One less so was going to the Driskill Hotel on January 1 for their legendary Bloody Mary bar. I checked via email and phone a number of times prior to our visit to make sure the hotel was still doing this event. I was... More

Visited on Christmas Day one of the few restaurants that was open. Amazing decor which harkens back to the 19th century. Make sure to visit the bar and enjoy the excellent food.

After dinner, our host took us to the Driskill Bar for drinks. Lots of seating, lots of wood and dark- it was perfect. Great service by wait staff and bartenders. They referred us to CU 29 Cocktail Bar after they closed at midnight, which was around the corner.

Hubby and I went to the Driskill Grill for happy hour. It's what you want a classic Texas hotel to look like...steer heads mounted on the walls, copper ceiling, leather, etc. Drinks were very tasty and service was pretty good, considering it was a packed house and there seemed to be only two servers on the floor. We shared the... More

Beautiful period room. Gracious servers who make everything perfect. Excellent choices ... antelope, braised bacon, wild boar with a very (not sweet) root beer braise and sauce. Very enjoyable evening.

Because the downstairs restaurant is under renovation, we were forced to meet our friends at the grill, upstairs. My breakfast with eggs and bacon was good but the two who ordered the goat cheese salad were not happy. My daughter who ordered the turkey sandwich was most unhappy so left the entire sandwich on the plate, uneaten. Won't meet our... More

The menu is rather short and obviously points a customer toward ordering the 5 course or the 7 course meal. After ordering the 5 course meal, the salad was super with heirloom tomatoes, but the 2 entrees were more like tiny portions that were fixed very well, but hardly worth the price. The blackened snapper consisted of a piece of... More

I love the Driskill. The hotel and the bar area is such a fun spot to visit. That said, brunch here was very blah. The menu items were very normal. All of which I could've gotten at a diner. Nothing special. Drinks were cheap though which is worth something. But service was crazy slow. We were a group of 14... More

The food is suburb, but more than that, the hotel is a landmark. Leave yourself plenty of time for drinks in the lobby of the original hotel (not the "new" portion added about 100 years ago).
