It was good. I enjoyed the sides, my steak was cooked a little too much for what i want on medium rare. I say go to Christopher's world grill if you are looking for a nice dinner out instead. If you are looking for steak much cheaper and I think better options are the Original Sodolaks's or J. Cody's. Again... More

Every town like College Station needs an upscale restaurant and in my short stint in CS, I think I found it with this gem. If you are scared off by high prices (150 for 2), then stay away. But if you are willing to fork over the cabbage, then put on a nice casual outfit, or dress up just a... More

The 3 of us had different menu items (steak, pork chop and fish) all were fantastic, as was the macaroni and cheese. The brussels spouts sounded better than they tasted. Dane was our server and took great care of us,

The steaks are fantastic! I always have them make me truffle mac and cheese which is just outstanding, (just regular mac and cheese is on the menu but they will add truffle oil to it if you ask), I would travel miles for that! The cheese plate appetizer is always well paired with quince, fruit and crackers. It's really all... More

When we get a craving for a great steak in town, this is where we go! There is an extensive drink and wine list, and the bar is a very popular place to be any given evening. The side dishes are also very good (we love the mac & cheese and mushrooms). One area they could improve are the desserts.... More

While not easy to find from University Avenue- actually perpendicular to University, the restaurant itself is impressive in appearance. We were seated at a booth, and there was plenty of room for the four of us. The drinks are creative and the food is very good, as is the service. Nice atmosphere for a college town.

On a whim, my wife and I went to The Republic Friday evening. We arrived without a reservation but they were able to accommodate us. Our waiter, Jantzan, did an excellent job of serving us. My wife has the Corsa salad followed by the kingfish, a relatively new item on the menu, and I had the chopped salad followed by... More

Eaten there many times, very consistent. Nice environment, friendly service. Great wine list, but a little expensive. Nice bar, can eat in the bar area. Many nights have live music in the bar without a cover charge. The best thing is the food, the steaks are outstanding! If you order a large steak to share make sure you tell them... More

We were so excited to bring our Granddaughter here after her graduation, after looking at reviews we decided this sounded excellent, and we love high end steak houses. This was not it. We were a table of 10, and they gave us one server that also had at least 8 other tables in the room. After the 1st round of... More

After having several wonderful experiences at The Republic 1836 over the years I am sad to report an overall drop in quality of the food preparation. Service is still great but I was forced to send the following letter to the Manager in regard to our meal last weekend. I did not ask for a response but was surprised not... More
