Stopped for dinner with my spouse. We had Shrimp and Grits and the Wednesday special meatloaf. Wine was $10 off a bottle.

One of the best places in The Woodlands to enjoy some fabulous comfort food! When you walk through the doors of Republic Grille you immediately see neat little pieces of history of and about The Woodlands. Before the main course, there was a mixed green...More

The food and the variety of dishes are really good. Each and everything that we have tried have been excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant. They have a number of speciality items on the menu, too. The prices are resonable for the quality of food.

We love The Republic Grille. We used to go there every week when we lived in the Woodlands, but it was a little disappointing that the baked beans are not in the menu anymore. Otherwise it’s just as great as it was 2 years ago.

Thank you for your response to my review. I am so sorry that you feel your staff could not control our experience at your restaurant. We did not choose our seating location. We were placed there and then AFTER that they seated 5 tables with small children around us. That was the reason for the rating of 1 for service. As for the 3 managers on site, we never saw any of them. It was probably too loud for them to bother to come into that room. As for the Waitress, we told her about the problem and all she said was I am sorry about that. As for the normal survey you provide at the restaurant that was conveniently forgotten on this occasion. Maybe you should be less worried about your ratings and more worried about really listening to what people say. I would have gladly changed it but since you published that it was our fault that our experience was poor I will just leave it like it is.
