Apparent that wait staff had bias towards some other... More

The Republic has the reputation of being one of the best restaurants in College Station. Perhaps my expectations were too high. The atmosphere is wonderful, and might be perfect for a romantic evening. The service is great; our waitress paid just the right amount of attention to our group. The food, however was disappointing. I tried the "Chicken Fried Filet... More

Simply put, The Republic is as good as it gets in BCS. Where to begin: 1. Ambiance: classy and cool, rather than garish. Lots of dark wood, old clubby feel. You want to linger here. 2. Owner: Wade Barkman is an exceptional host and manager and has a level of staff training without peer in BCS. Classy sweet funny hard-working... More

Quality food, excellent service, variety and dining comfort. You will pay top price but bill is equal to the quality. Always a good bet but make a reservation, especially for special events.

This was the last meal our group ate after a week of training. The food and drinks were great, as was the service. I had the petit filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly medium rare. The group shared several sides, and the best one of all was the Mac n Cheese. Overall it was an amazing meal!

Bit overpriced, but has a great service. Stakes are very good. For evening hours they have pretty good selections of cocktails, vines and single malts. This is a local hi-end place. Good for business dinners.

Definitely the restaurant of choice in College Station for fine dining. The steaks are excellent and the atmosphere is pleasant. They are capable of handling large groups for business dinners. I need to bring my wife here for our next anniversary dinner.
