Steak and Whiskey - what else do you need to know?

This is where I take my parents for special occasion dinners in College Station - well my dad especially. He is a steak and potatoes kind of guy so this is a go-to. Yes it is a place to see and be seen but the food really is excellent. The last time we were there, we were well received by... read 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

I have eaten at the Republic on multiple occasions (company Christmas dinner, romantic dinner, etc.) and have never had a bad experience here. I suggest drinking their lemon drop martini! One of my go to drinks here. Their steaks are always cooked to perfection and never disappoint! Service at the bar maybe a little slow during the right after work... More

Periodically we visit the Republic for great food and friendly and attentive service. This was another wonderful experience. My wife has the Corsa salad followed by the free range chicken and I had the wedge salad with the ribeye; both meals, washed down with very nice pinot grigio and pinot noir, were delicious. And the service was exceptional. We shall... More

The food was ok. The waiter was just dumb. Telling us the filet was not a good cut, get the ribeye. Ok. EVERY steak place says the same thing. This guy told us the filet didn't have any taste and was a poor choice. Not knowing that this is my wife's favorite cut. Instead, wish he would have told me... More

This restaurant is one of the best in College Station. They have wonderful servers who are friendly and professional (get Scott if you can), they have a great drink menu to start, the starters are delicious (highly recommend the chicken fried oysters), and the meal just continues from there. I had the lobster bisque soup and the chicken fried medallions... More
