  • mike reviewThis is one of my all time favorite restaurants in Austin. Everything is amazing, but especially the steak tartare is the best I've had anywhere and it's something I tend to order a lot. It comes perfectly seasoned with a quail egg on top.

  • Olga BCreative & amazing cocktails. Tater tots as a starter is delicious! Make sure you try acorn squash as a side. Yummy! They change their menu every season- so we like to get a bunch of plates to share.

    55555 by Olga B

    55555 by Lisa S.

  • John F.Their Hog Jowl will always have a place in my heart.

    55555 by John F.

  • Sandy H.Upscale American dining is a great description which equates to quality over quantity in this case. Amazing food, but portions are small. For dessert, pear cake and donuts are a win.

    55555 by Sandy H.

    55555 by ginger c.

  • ScottThe food was great - the calamari was great - especially salty and tasty. The NY strip was perfect and finished with cinnamon doughnuts dessert. Recommend highly!!

    55555 by Brook Shelley

  • Chefs FeedDavid Bull, chef of Bar Congress, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Oysters on the half shell.

    55555 by Chefs Feed

  • EpicuriousStart off the meal with the fried green tomatoes, which are crisp and firm, and the Texas onion rings, crunchy and sweet. But make sure to order the all-you-can-eat family-style BBQ dinner.

    55555 by Epicurious

  • Clinton CalderGruyere mac and cheese is exceptional

    55555 by Clinton Calder

  • Shadd S.Little Island oysters!

    55555 by Shadd S.

  • EaterShawn Cirkiel's first restaurant has made its mark as a dining oasis on Dirty Sixth. They're an especially good bet for seafood, and the rooftop seating is lovely in good weather. [Eater 38 Member]

    55555 by Eater

  • Jason M.Large selection of oysters.

    55555 by Jason M.

  • Gregory H.Monday is martini night, $5 martini drinks. Happy hour is until 6:30, half price bar menu,.

    55555 by Gregory H.

    33333 by Dan M.

  • Dan K.The lamb chops are really good! Get the roasted wild mushrooms if they have them.

    55555 by Dan K.

  • Cat N.Overall this place doesn't feel like it fits the Austin food scene. It didn't taste homemade or amazing. There is way better food (and more extensive cocktail lists) elsewhere.

    55555 by Cat N.

    55555 by Mister G.

    55555 by Nirmal D.

  • Austin ChronicleIt's worth navigating the Sixth St. circus for this divine bistro. Best as a late-night haven or at happy hour, when the half-price bar menu gets you steak frites & a killer martini for under $20.

    55555 by Austin Chronicle
