We had a good dinner, food and service were good. It is very traditional, and the outside bar with live music aims a different crowd that comes to the restaurant. Good option if you like traditional restaurants.

I've eaten all over the world, but I've never seen kangaroo on the menu - so I HAD to try it. It was delicious. No, it didn't taste like chicken. More like a beef tenderloin. Perfectly juicy and flavorful. Must try

If you are dining at the Driskill, they provide Valet parking which is nice since the downtown traffic is heavy or their is a parking garage on the sidestreet of the hotel which cost $10.00 to park. The Grill is nicely appointed and the staff very gracious, informative and attentive in the correct way, (didn't overdo), The restaurant is small... More

Had a great dinner with some new favorites. Service was a bit slow, but probably because there was a lot of us.

This hotel and bar is so pretty and unique. It was a perfect place to have drinks Christmas Eve with my husband. We weren't as pleased with the band this year as we were last year but it's better than having no music at all. I would like to go back every year during Christmas time

Pumkin bisque was ok, salad was good. We ordered the osso buco and ribeye. The osso was great with balsamic reduction was also great...the ribeye was a disappointment...it was thin and without much flavor. Compared to flemings...it would be a "C". The staff was really nice and brought an extra desert in honor of our anniversary. I would go again... More

Lovely bar full of true Texas charm. The specialty drinks all have a Texas flare or name. Friendly waitresses. Enjoyable place to relax after work and enjoy a drink.

We made reservations for the Grill for Thanksgiving. Easily one of the best meals I have ever had. A set menu, with family style sides with your entree (turkey, beef tenderloin, red snapper OR pork), and the opportunity to have wine pairings. We feasted on butternut squash bisque, salad with pear, pork belly, the entree, and a bombe-style dessert. Excellent... More

The restaurant came highly recommended from a family member so we were looking forward to it. The service was good and our waiter was very attentive. After placing our order unfortunately we waited for a good 45 minutes maybe longer before we got our food. They were not that busy because it was later in the evening. I ordered a... More
