Although I read great reviews prior to visiting this restaurant and despite the fact that I was REALLY hungry.......oh boy.......I believe this place is terribly overrated. Clearly others disagree, as it was remarkably crowded with plenty of "atmosphere"........the food was, well, so-so. A high school...More

An iconic venue in Austin - although I didn’t eat in the restaurant, there was a live music event out back. The food trucks and the music were amazing. Come here, eat lots and listen to good music, you also have 30 free beer tasting...More

Really enjoy music at Stubbs. Convenient location. good outdoor stage area. The venue would be much better with more seating near concessions and faster concession service. No need to get to concert too early as the courtyard is wide open and anytime someone leaves their...More
