We came here on the recommendation of a server who promised they had craft beer and they did! We were in luck. They had about 25 taps each with a delicious beer. I wished they would have offered smaller pours than just pints though. They also have some games to play, shuffleboard, darts, etc. And they are pet friendly! Many... More

The food was really good, Fish tacos were fresh and well seasoned. The prices were reasonable. Margaritas, beer, etc. were exceptional. Definitely will go back next time were in Austin.

Watched the Superbowl at this bar and it was freezing cold sitting outside. The bars have lava heating lamps to warm us up to keep us from freezing. Wide variety of beer. The server was very friendly. I had hand battered fish and chips which was good. highly recommend this place for sports game viewing parties.

I recently visited Doc's with some friends to watch play-off football. Doc's has a reputation as a fun bar that is good for watching sports, so we decided to check it out. Parking can be a pain, I was there fairly early on Saturday evening and there was nothing available on Congress Ave. I luckily found a spot right behind... More

Docs is in a super fun area of Austin on Congress ave. with tons of shopping and restaurants. They have a great outside patio area where you can sit, eat, drink and watch all the Austin weirdness go by. They also have an inside area if you prefer that, but I am always a fan of sitting outside. They have... More

Fun place to sit outside and take in Austin. I highly recommend any one of their salads. I want to go back to try their Bloody Mary's!

This restaurant/bar was right across the street from the Austin Motel where we stayed when we were in Austin. First time we went there, it was just for a couple of drinks and it was fine. Nothing special for that. Large tv's to watch and the most beer spouts to dispense beer in one place that I've ever seen. Next... More
