“Excellent Food, Great Service!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Our first visit, the food was fantastic, but the service was lacking. We've been back many many times, and found both the food and service to be outstanding. And the pies! Incredible pies!

However, we still haven't made it to one of their free concerts on Friday and Saturday nights.

“Closest thing to how mama used to cook”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Want a good "home cooked meal". This is the next best thing and you don't have to do the dishes when done. The food is excellent, the wait staff is very prompt, the prices are cheap. The atmosphere is a restored old house western style. The live music during the summer is a bonus in the evenings but better get there early to beat the crowd. The word is out this is the place to eat in Williamson county.

“Attentive Staff, Great Food, Relaxed Environment”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

I've heard about the Dahlia Cafe for a long time and have driven past it countless times. Finally my friend and I stopped to check it out and it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked through the door to the hostess stand to check out, we enjoyed the entire experience. Our waiter, Jason, was on his second day but had come from a long line of high end Austin steak houses and absolutely knew what he was doing. Not only did he do a fine job but the Manager/Owner checked on us frequently. The food was excellent, pricing very reasonable and we look forward to coming back for other things including all those desserts.

“Laid Back, Friendly Service & Great Food”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We've had lunch here several times and never been disappointed. It's really a neat place to see. They have a small indoor restaurant, a covered outside restaurant, outdoor picnic tables and chairs for concerts and a play area for kids. They have a very nice menu of appetizers, sandwiches and meals along with some of the best pies in Hill Country! I've eaten their meat loaf plate and chicken salad sandwich on the times I've been there and both times the food was excellent. Others I've gone with have had the meat loaf and avocado sandwich and the chicken salad on lettuce. Their broccoli cheese soup is to die for. No one complained and certainly didn't leave hungry. The waiters and waitresses are very friendly and attentive. Their prices are very reasonable.

“Great Food in Casual Atmosphere”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This is a casual restaurant with outside seating, live music when the weather is great, alcohol license for margaritas and beer, etc.; great food and friendly staff. The menu has salads, vegetables, pork chops, meat loaf, artichoke dip and more. I got the 3 vegetable plate in Jan 2014. It is not fancy but clean and casual, Liberty Hill, Texas style! Paper egg cartons are stapled to the ceiling in the main dining hall! LOL I have eaten there alone, with friends and met friends there just for drinks and live music. The Leander Train Station is just a few minutes away so you could eat here on a Friday or Saturday evening and then go to Leander, Texas just 10 minutes down Highway 183 and take the Capital Metro Commuter Rail into Austin for a show or just to see Downtown Austin Texas. Check the Capital Metro website for commuter train as well as bus schedules.
