I can't say enough about the service we received at Reata. The staff was genuinely friendly and willing to help you out in anyway. We sat out back in the patio area, and it was very relaxing and shady even though it was a warm...More

Not at all like the version on Ft Worth. An unimposing building on a side street that looks more like an old ranch house than the much more upscale version further north. DIfferent menu as well. Food was good but not great. I did enjoy...More

I would have rated it 4 but for the worst martini ever. I've eaten here 3 times before and looked forward to returning. The food was good, and the service friendly and competent. I will be giving it another chance when I revisit Big Bend...More

My wife and I stopped for lunch on the way to Big Bend. Don't let the outside fool you. We enjoyed the great service and authentic Carna Asada, Nachos, "CF" Burger, and topped it off with fresh Pecan Pie and Ice Cream. The atmosphere takes...More

I have had wonderful meals here and hope to return. Try a vodka martini (shaken all to hell, not stirred), twist of lemon. Maybe a slight drop of vermouth. Out in the patio enclosure. Tito's, of course. The sun will go down as beautifully as...More

Excellent food and service in a historical setting. We eat at this restaurant every time we travel near Alpine. It's best to make a reservation particularly for dinner.

What a find in a small town in Texas. Southwestern style menu cooked and presented in 5 star fashion. Cowboy hats off to the staff and chef for a fine dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere.

The original Reata Restaurant located in the scenic Davis Mountains of west Texas offers the same fine dining and Legendary Texas Cuisine you can find at the Fort Worth location. Alpine, home to Sul Ross State University is near Texas tourist destination Big Bend National Park and the towns of Marathon, Fort Davis and Lajitas. Alpine is also a short drive from Marfa, Texas renowned both for the mysterious Marfa Lights and Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation. Reata, named after the legendary ranch in the James Dean classic movie, “Giant”, which was filmed in nearby Marfa, boasts the same high quality Southwestern dining you can find in Fort Worth. This is not food for the faint of heart, from Chicken Fried Steak to Calf Fries or the Pepper Crusted Tenderloin and Cowboy Rib Eye Steak, this is a dining experience not to miss. Today, Reata Alpine remains a true destination restaurant, attracting loyal diners from miles beyond the charming converted farmhouse where our Legendary Texas Cuisine was born.
