Great food, great service! Our server was Josh, and he was awesome! We sat outside and enjoyed our time here. One of our favorite dinners while in Austin!

This place was so relaxed. I popped in Sunday evening for one beer, but stayed a lot longer as the vibe, music, customers and especially the bartender were all so cool, you just felt so genuinely relaxed and welcome. The bartender (Brett) was surely one...of the coolest and most laidback ever. Correctly guessed my accent (NZ) in five words, which has never happened. I can't comment on the food, but the beer, vibe and service were all great!More

There was a group us (7) that went here before a work function. I can't speak for anyone else's food but mine was that special. Actually, pretty underwhelming. I had the Burger with fries, both of which were extremely salty. The burger was dry. Everyone...else had these huge portions and I've seen bigger burgers from a fast food joint. Waiter seemed annoyed the second he came to the table, not friendly. Didn't like the vibe of the place at all.More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. While our Brazos burger is generally well-received, it appears we missed the mark with your order and service. We will be reviewing what we can do to improve as every customer experience matters to us. We...More

Arrived around 9:15 on a Saturday night and were seated right away on the patio. There are heaters on the patio so it was pleasant. There were 5 of us and we had 3 entree salads, fish and ships and a burger. Salads were good...and right portion size, burger was just ok and fish and chips were good and crispy. Our server Nicklaus was great! He was attentive, efficient and very nice! Thanks for the positive experience Nicklaus! We will be back!More

We had an early dinner at his establishment. It was convenient and we were tired from a long day of travel and meetings. Casual atmosphere with diners of all ages. My wife enjoyed her Southwest Salad with blackened chicken and I had the quinoa with...smoked brisket. We highly recommend the hot spinach and artichoke dip served with pita bread while enjoying one of their unique cocktails.More

Stopped here by recommendation from a local hotel. Enjoyed the brisket tacos and guacamole/salsa. They have a nice patio that I wish I sat on after the fact! Was nice and quiet for a relaxing lunch.

As a group of 5, we met up in the back part of the restaurant to watch the LSU vs. Clemson game. Since we had had a late lunch we made dinner from multiple shared appetizers or small sides. Some ordered tacos or other options....I had tortillia soup which was too chunky for me and on the salty side. We stayed for the entire game and had a wonderful evening. Attentive wait staff.More

We were at Cedar Door during Happy Hour and enjoyed the Mexican Martini for $8. It was delicious but beware - it is very strong. I had one glass of wine before going here and then this drink and got really drunk and sick afterward...so I wouldn't advise mixing wine. Cedar Door is much larger inside than it looks and we enjoyed the casual vibe. Both my husband (who had the same drinks as I did and was OK) and I had the pork tenderloin medallions served with yummy mashed potatoes and a large side of asparagus. Our service was great and so was our meal!More

We ate lunch there, and no snacks were served with our drinks. Like mentioned above, they might if you're at the bar but we were sitting at a table.
