The place is what it say it is - southern comfort food. Don't go there expecting anything else - but what they do they do very well. One of the best bourbon - rye bar lists you'll get with healthy pours at a fair price. The Manhattan is no slouch either. The chicken fried steak was fantastic, good sized and... More

Great restaurant that is right downtown and allows you to get a feel for the Austin vibe. There can be a long wait...but it is worth it. Great food and drinks.

Came here based off the recommendation of the front Desk Staff at the Austin Marriott South and I was not disappointed.

A great place to try legal moonshine. This restaurant has great food and drinks in an atmosphere that can be described as classy casual. The food is incredible and worth every penny. Though this place does not accept reservations, there is always space and very little wait. Really well done!

I had lunch here, as it was just a short walk from the Four Seasons Hotel where I was staying. Nice environment. Started off with complimentary popcorn. I had the Turkey sandwich that comes with a choice of one side. I added avocado and bacon to my sandwich, which was very good. I chose Mac n cheese as my side... More
