Great Food and Staff

Since the restaurant was crowded, we decided to order take out and have in our Hotel Room. Good choice as our room was spacious! The food was wonderful, we order the Angus Hamburger and Parmesan Fries with Espresso Chocolate Cake. Delicious. A little pricey but worth the experience!

I ate on the patio, because I am a sucker for fountainside dining, and the climate is so pleasant... The service was good but not exceptional, and the flies were a bit bothersome, but that is what you get when you eat outside. The atmosphere was lovely, though. But the steak - that's what I will remember and what will... More

Great restaurant-- excellent service and food. Pricey, but worth it. We had the big burger, the shrimp cocktail, the quail, and the fried artichoke hearts. Key lime pie was also great.

This is a hotel restaurant that is really good. We checked in and did not want to go out. We didn't expect much. We were pleasantly surprised with really good and creative. The service was perfect.

The pistachio fried steak was the best chicken fried steak we've had in a six week road trip around the U.S. South. It was huge...two of us split it along with the vegetable plate and it was a wonderful dinner. The outside terrace was pleasant, even at the end of June. Great service capped a delightful evening

We ate dinner here. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. We ate outdoors and it was very pleasant, even in June. We also enjoyed people watching -- many well-dressed guests were in town for a upscale wedding.

Marfa is a unique place, in many respects. One of them is their restaraunt schedule. This place seemed to be the only one open the day we arrived. Food was ok, but not worth the prices. Service was a bit slow. When we arrived we asked to be seated outside in the courtyard. They declined, saying it looked like a... More

We stayed at Hotel Paisano and had reservations for dinner on Friday night. We had a nice table in the main dining area, close to the beautiful light filled bar. Our meals were very good and three of us ordered the house special margarita (jalapeño infused tequila). The first sip was a bit of a shock, but as we continued... More

We enjoyed a delicious dining experience. The restaurant is comfortable with a beautiful view of the patio fountain. Service was excellent and the food beautifully presented. I'm still having day dreams about the pistachio crusted fried steak. I will travel across Texas for this meal again, soon!

So much to say! Jett's Grill is located within the historic Hotel Paisano of Marfa, Texas. Named after James Dean's iconic character in the movie Giant, the restaurant features southwest cuisine ranging from the ever so delicious Pistachio Fried Steak to classic Chile Rellenos. This particular day I had the latter which had a wonderfully crisp batter and was stuffed... More
