Great steak, nice atmosphere

The Republic is a very good quality steakhouse. We both had the filet and it was great. We came in about 9:30 at night and got right in. I'm sure you would need reservations earlier on a Saturday. They have some good local craft beers. The chophouse salad was nothing special. We will... read more

They have some good local craft beers. The chophouse salad was nothing special. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I did a Friday dinner at the restaurant. Our server Jennifer was very attentive and helpful in our menu choices. Eclectic drink list that my wife and I tried 2 different drinks. The Oysters Rockefeller were outstanding. The steaks were cooked to our liking and of restaurant quality. The sides were OK. We loved the bread.

Service was attentive without being overbearing. I thought my NY strip was rather tough. It looked great, just tough to chew. My dining companions both had Filet Mignon which they loved. Sides were well presented and eagerly consumed. Decent wine list, we all enjoyed the Chateau Ste. Michelle. We skipped the tempting desserts in favor of birthday cake at home!... More

We celebrated my birthday at The Republic, and it was an enjoyable event. The service was attentive and helpful, the ambiance was refined, and the food was delicious. This place serves various cuts of beef - the strip steak and the ribeye are particularly flovorful - as well as other entrees. I had the ribeye and my wife had the... More

This is one of two up-scale restaurants in College Station. Awesome food and service. Perfect for an important business dinner or special occasion. Great bar with a wide selection of scotch and premium liquors. Food is astounding. Wait staff is refined and well trained.

The Republic is a class place to enjoy with friends and colleagues. Priced at the high end and worth it. Their food gets its taste from excellent preparation, not tricks. Solis well cooked beef - I enjoy the New York strip which is more like a roast than a thin flat piece of meat.The sides (like spinach and roasted red... More

Excellent service, much like that to be found in an upscale place in a big city. Steaks, their specialty, were comparable to those at Ruth's Chris. Good wine selection. A little pricey for a restaurant in a small city but worth it for the most part.

I've reviewed The Republic before and usually my reviews are 100% positive. We used to live in College Station, and we now visit at least once per year. We have eaten here many times, and when we come back to town, we always eat at The Republic. This past experience was just not as wonderful as it has been in... More

We've dined at the Republic 3 times in the past year and have nothing but good things to say about it. Atmosphere is very nice with enough room between the tables to have a private conversation. Service has been excellent. We like to take our time when dining out and the servers got the message quickly without constantly trying to... More
