“average food”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We felt the food was not up to par. Our kids did not like their food and neither did my wife. I thought the food was okay but believe we could have gotten better food at another location. The staff at that restuarant was okay and respectful. They just need a better menu and better tasting food.

“Consistent”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

It's good, would be better if it offered lighter fare, but I love the "allergy" menu. The staff is always helpful and the breakfast buffet was great!

“Monday - Friday Lunch Buffet for $7.99”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Their all-u-can eat lunch buffets on Tuesday (Soup, Salad and Pasta) and Thursdays (Chicken Fajitas) are very good for the price. Service is average, but for $7.99 plus tax it's a pretty good deal for downtown Austin.

“Friday's Bat Viewing, July 2012”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had read that this was a good place to watch the Congress St. bats, but the view from the balcony/patio (the "batio") as our menu indicated, while pretty, was quite limited. I feel pretty certain the menu prices for sitting out there are more expensive, which is their prerogative, but they don't tell you. We had a family of 4, and ordered 2 hamburgers, a salad, and a chicken and shrimp meal plus four drinks, (no alcohol) and our tab was nearly $80 before tip! I'm certain we don't pay that much normally. We did enjoy the misters and the nice view of nature, but the crape myrtles, (also very pretty) almost completely blocked our view of the river. We sat until well after dark, when the people on the bridge were leaving and saw only the occasional bat fly by. The food was good, typical of this chain, but had I to do it again, I would eat inside, if at all, and then walk to the bridge for a better view. (They will not tell you the menu prices are higher for sitting outside, but the host will conveniently ask you where you want to sit before he picks up the menus.)

“Perfect except Sunday Night”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Just like every other TGIF's except on sunday nights. The service was slow. The waiter spilled the drinks on the table behind us. The managers comment was "this staff is lazy and doesn't like to work." .....Then get rid of them and get people who do. I was there for a convention and they definately were not ready.
