I was able to reserve a table online an hour before we showed up. We were seated immediately and our waitress was very fast and helpful. The brunch buffet has a good amount of options, but I would have liked a little more variety. I particularly liked the gulf shrimp salad, the cured beef, silver dollar pancakes, and my coffee....

Love Jack Allen's Kitchen! Excellent experience from the appetizers to the Girl Scout Cookie Cheesecake for dessert, and everything in between! Impressive that they use as much local produce and food sources as they can, that makes it even better!

The Sunday brunch here is really quite good. There are so many options that I can't describe them all. You'll want to sample everything but my favorite was the green chili pork.

It is another overly hyped restaurant with average quality. I have been here twice. Both times I only liked the fries. It is certainly not something at the top of my recommendations list. If it were not for the gift card, I would not have went again. The staff are very friendly and attentive, but otherwise, I will be dining... More

We went to dinner here while staying at the Omni Barton Creek for a girls weekend. We were seated outside on the patio. We had shared plates of the crunchy catfish and slaw (a must have!), the burger and a few other appetizers. Everything came out hot and perfectly prepared. Nice selection of wine and mixed drinks. The service was... More

A great Austin restaurant from start to finish. It starts with the complimentary valet parking and a pleasant greeting and ends with a fantastic dessert. The decor is very unique and welcoming. Our server, Willis, was extremely personable and knowledgeable. I never had to ask for iced tea refills (very important to me). Very Texan and local choices as to... More

The thing is, there are a lot of good choices at Jack Allen but a few consistent entrees that aren't spicy would be welcome. The guacamole has always been great but tonight it had something so hot in it that I couldn't enjoy it, though others could. The chicken fried chicken was great and the steak salad. The rice and...

We enjoyed the Navajo Chicken Taco - which was a deconstructed taco of a very large portion. Lots of flavor layers. Patio was not crowded so we could easily have a conversation and be heard. Look forward to returning to try other menu items.
