I've been dining at Boudro's for 27 years and the food has always been excellent. We've had many celebrations here and never been disappointed with the (never changing) decor and excellent cuisine. However, the service is hit or miss. Never know what your going to get. Also, there's an attitude of high end dining with moderate to high pricing. Basically,... More

The preparation and service was excellent - tried tow night to just walk in and that was a big mistake - reservations are highly recommended.

High end trending tourist trap. Thought with the new chef the food would have improved..stay away from the shrimp and grits. The servers are nice but tend to rush you through your meal.

Being a midwesterner from Minnesota I forgot one vital rule when ordering beef, "What does medium-rare mean here?" My mistake but i won't disparage the place. The service was excellent, even with a crowd a 15 slightly surly folks. Drinks, albeit four kinds of beer was a surprise - hey it's Texas, and appetizers were fantastic. I would try it... More

This place was recommended for their table side guacamole! We ordered the prickly pear margaritas and both were amazing. The only drawback is they are known for not being very welcoming (as told to us by a local shop keeper) once they find out that your only there to have the guacamole and drinks. Our waiter became very curt and... More

Well, Texas is known for steak, but Boudro's takes it to a whole new level. Aged perfectly, seasoned well, and cooked to perfection. I cannot say more. Make reservations or you won't eat. They take walk ins, but you will be standing around for a very long time. When making your reservations be sure to ask for river seating.

We had Sunday lunch at Boudro's and were immensely satisfied with the food and service. We ate inside for the air-conditioning, but there is river walk seating available. We had two traditional dishes: shrimp with pasta and a blue crab tostada. Both justified their popularity. The shrimp were plump and delicious. The blue crab was excellent. We also took advantage...

We were referred to this restaurant for their fresh guacamole and were not disappointed. Without a doubt, it was the best I have ever had. Also experienced my first Prickly Pear Margarita which was excellent!

Our group ended up separated at 2 different tables but the food and service was great. Tableside guacamole is a must and the shrimp and grits was amazing! Great margaritas too!
