I was with a group of 7, it was a fun place to have a drink and hang out. Casual, not crowded mid day. I enjoyed the hard cider (gluten Free). I would recommend it to travelers as a casual place for a drink.

Have been to this jewel a couple of times in recent months and it never disappoints! The blackened jumbo shrimp tacos are my favorite! Really cool, laid back vibe and the service is always friendly. Will return again and again, whenever I am in Austin.

Lavaca Street is one of the oldest bars in the warehouse district and is still great. The addition of Turf N Surf just makes it better.
