I cannot claim to be an expert on Cajun food, but Cypress Grill came as a delicious surprise to find buried in a strip mall. The food is delicious, with a spice and flavor that I find outstanding without being overbearing, and the portions are generous without prices being too high. I've only eaten here for lunch but it's been... More

Enjoyed a great lunch with a client while in Austin, the gumbo and quarter muffalata was perfect amount for lunch and both were full of flavor that reminded me of the years I spent in Nawlins. This is a small restaurant in a strip center, but it is very worth seeking out.

I grew up in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, including many years at LSU so my standards for cajun cuisine are very high. Cypress Grill is, no doubt, the best cajun restaurant in Austin. The gumbo is great with a nice dark roux. The Catfish Atchafalaya is a favorite, but I'm pretty sure there are no bad options on the... More

As the title would imply, this is a little hole in the wall place in a strip center in southwest Austin. We found it a few trips ago, but we had not been able to squeeze it into our schedule on the last few trips. However, we had dinner there on this last trip. If you are looking for pomp... More

Breakfast, especially their French toast is wonderful. Unfortunately I went for lunch. The oysters in my salad were so salty as to be inedible. The management agreed but did not comp my relatively untouched meal. Breakfast yes, lunch not so much...

Joined my husband for lunch here. We both greatly enjoyed the red rice and beans from the Lunch Menu...generous serving and just the right amount of spice. We'll go back.

Great restaurant, fun to catch the live music, fantastic Cajun food. This place is great for kids - they have a nice kid menu selection! My advice?? Get the oyster poboy sandwich and eat the fries with their honey mustard dressing. Have a Mexican martini too, and don't forget the bread pudding for dessert!! In the fall, they serve pumpkin...

The cypress grill is a hidden jewel in Austin. It is a little restaurant located off Mopac (loop 1) and William Cannon in a strip mall. The restaurant is small and has lots of drink specials during the week. The food is cajun with a lot of what you would expect from a New Orleans restaurant. It was absolutely awesome!... More
