Fantastic Steaks, sides, wine, service, and overall place to have a family meal. Our waiter made sure every person's meal was just what they wanted. I will return next time I am in Austin.

We were in town for a conference and visited this restaurant based on our concierge recommendation. I ordered their 22 oz Ribeye but got served the Strip Steak instead, very tough and hard to cut even with the sharp steak life provided.

Jeans and polos should be just fine. There are other places in Austin I would recommend to wear at least a dress shirt, but this place does have a more relaxed Austin vibe. You'll fit right in wearing jeans and a polo.
