Exceptional steak house

Went to this restaurant because it was reviewed favorably on trip advisor. Favorable reviews were, if anything, not complimentary enough. Steak and pork chop were exceptional, as was the soup. Chef owner visited our table and was generous with cookibng advice.

The Republic is an upscale steak house in College Station, TX. It is very highly regarded as the best restaurant of its type in this locale. We've eaten at many fine restaurants. This place serves a steak that is truly on a par with the best in the world. Of course, this is in Texas and there is no better... More

One of the best steaks that I've ever had came from here. Thick, thick cut of meat cooked evenly and perfectly all the way through. Sides and salad were excellent. Service was very professional and excellent. This is a high end restaurant and you'd expect all of the aforementioned things. The Republic gives you everything you'd expect. I love the... More

I loved the The Republic. The best steads I have ever had. I enjoyed the service and food very much. A little pricey for my wallet, but well worth it.

Great place for a special occasion. Best steak in the Bryan/College Station area. Their cocktails are also amazing. The Bar area is a great mingling area and a great place to start with their cheese platter. Their lamb is also to die for. Sides are very large so one side is enough for 2-3 people to share. Service can be... More

The dinner at The Republic in College Station,TX was exquisite, tranquil atmosphere, very professional waiter who gave thorough and vivid description of the choices both for the wine menu as well as the food menu. A Filet Mignon that was a joy to the palate served with side dishes that were as well prepared as the main dish, especially the... More

Visited this restaurant last week, and I was impressed the moment my shoe crossed the threshold. The hostess greeted us warmly and took us immediately toour seats. (Make a reservation so you will not be dissappointed!). I started with the jumbo lump crab cake, which I could not resist trying as crab is one of my faves. This did not... More

Superb, 5 star, service and amazing food (and I've dined in New York, Santa Monica, & Palm Beach) Best shrimp and grits ever. Fantastic cocktails. On several nights there is live music that is not over powering and really sets the mood. It is one of two special places that I enjoy friends with drinks and appetizers. For a special... More
