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

Fantastic spot. The food is great the steaks well prepared and the staff is well trained. The loaction is excellent. The steaks are well marbled and cooked over high heat allowing for perfect searing.

This is a restaurant that is a bit pricey, but the food and service is outstanding. It was so good, in fact, that I visited there two times in a 5 day stay in College Station Texas. We came on a business trip with a fairly large group, and we had to wait a bit for a big table, but... More

Service is fantastic. Waiters are great with their advice. I had the pork chop (super) a salad and Brussels sprouts side. All great. The wine selections are also good. Worth the $$. (It is a bit pricey)

Over the past couple of months we have visited The Republic on two occasions, the most recent earlier this week. As usual, the food and service were exceptional. The rib eye was perfectly prepared and the roasted chicken was also delicious. Reservations are strongly recommended. This restaurant has become quite popular.

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.
