We were staying in Alpine but went to Marfa in the evening. This is a nice restaurant in the historic Hotel Paisano. The hotel lobby is a marvel and so is the courtyard with the fountain. We took our drinks and sat next to a fireplace while waiting for a table. The menu is small but quite good. Chicken pasta... More

Great food and bar in Jett's Grill! Famous hotel and great food and drinks! The people that work in the hotel can give you a history lesson on the hotel and the filming of Giant!

Where to start: first, many of the reviews mention the horrible service so no need to repeat those comments. Then there's the food. Sometimes the temperature is correct! The chef is apparently trying to put together something cool, trendy, edgy (pistachio covered something, salmon (?) with cherry sauce? Does that sound bad...yep. Is it bad....yep. But come back in a... More

We had dinner here one night. I had the fish tacos which were recommended by the waiter, but it was a mistake. It was two tiny tacos covered in tons of guacamole. Just a bad dish. My boyfriend got the burger and it was large and came with fries. He seemed pleased with it. Nothing special, but not bad either.... More

I had maragritas everynight I could, from San Antonio to Big Bend, to Marfa and the one here was outstanding. We arrived without a reservations, and with another family we met on the Chinati tour. They were able to seat us right away. Food was excellent, my husband had the chicken dinner, and I had fish tacos. Had a second... More

There were four of us who enjoyed a quiet Sunday evening at Jett's Grill in Marfa. The courtyard is lovely and we started to dine al fresco but my sister and her friend had just returned from two nights of camping out in the Davis Mountains State Park and were ready for some indoor eating. We sat down in a... More

Food was well prepared but not spectacular, overpriced. Service was absolutely dysfunctional. No one to seat arriving guests, a bit of a free for all, more than a half hour to get a drink after eventually getting a table. Different servers who did not appear to coordinate with each other. I'd suggest going to the Reata in Alpine instead.

We spent one night at the Paisano hotel while touring the Big Bend area and ate dinner at Jett's Grill. Everything was delicious, and the service was great. My husband had an heirloom tomato salad, and I had a salad with a citrus dressing. We shared the salads. The heirloom tomato salad was delicious. I would go back just to... More

This place has a very nice location, our artichoke starter was nice as was my burger, my husbands chicken fried steak, was just ok, but our salad was kind of sad. So the food is ok, but the service was awful. We stood around for several minutes waiting to get attended to, trying to catch someones eye, kind of got... More
