Good business lunch spot

We had a quiet business lunch here this past week. The food was good. A nice taste of Texas. Service was ok nothing spectacular but decent. I'd go back.

Had lunch at the Roaring Fork today with a friend and was impressed yet again with the restaurant, its menu, and service. Beautifully clubby with Texana and yet still a hip vibe, the Roaring Fork bar is a great place to meet friends and colleagues and have a drink and light fare. The restaurant itself is marvelous and today we... More

Attended a business dinner here and it was terrific! The waiters were very attentive and the food was great! There was a wide range of selections at the table, and everyone raved.

We had a family dinner here last night. Service was superb. Food was above average, not great but good. Mostly meat based dishes, we had one vegetarian, ordered side dishes. Would recommend this place for a classy dinner.

I ended up ordering steak instead of fish tacos or another Mexican favorite and it was a mistake. The fusion isn't really working. The walnut salad was great and definitely too large for even 2 people to eat. We both had the filet and it was dry and too burnt. We ended up getting a sauce to be able to... More

The restaurant was a very busy being a Saturday night but we were able to sit in the bar area. We both got the spit roasted chicken with cornbread stuffing and green beans. Everything was soo delicious and the portions were generous.

We were walking in the capital area when we were looking for someplace we could sit down. The prices were mid-range and not bad, but it was reservation only because they were so full. The ambiance was beautiful and comforting. They did have some couch seating, but call ahead, or get there early, so you can snap it up!

My coworker had the green chili mac & cheese and the kettle of green chili pork. Both had a bit of a kick but very flavorful as well. Would recommend... More
