If you want to back in time to a classic restaurant then this is absolutely the place to eat. I ate here with a group of 30 friends and we had a wonderful time. The food was at the top of my list for taste, presentation and amount.

We had lunch at The Driskill Hotel, a terrific old hotel modernized to present day, but keeping the incredible original Romanesque architecture of 1886. Our lunch was delicious -- burgers and fries. But the best thing was when we came back to the bar one night to hear a terrific band called the Gin Runners. The bar area has much... More

This is a really nice place to have dinner at. I ordered the fried chicken and I think I got half a chicken. It was huge and really delicious. You definitely need to try their signature 1886 chocolate cake.

Stop in the bar area -- have a drink and listen to music. The bartenders there (one been there 35-years) make some good drinks and offer great conversation.

We've stayed at The Driskill before, but were were staying at another hotel on this trip to the #ATX. Regardless, we always visit this hotel and the bar while in town. If you can nab a spot at the bar, jump on it. Regardless, the small tables are quite cozy and nice as well. The wait staff's service was excellent... More

We wanted to stay at the Driskill, but unfortunately it was sold out when we booked our hotel. Part of why I wanted to stay their was their bar area that I saw in photos. We were lucky enough one very busy night (the hotel had holiday parties going on) to score 2 seats at the bar. All three male... More

We had a few drinks and snacks in the bar area. The authentic luxurious old west decor was a unique treat to enjoy. We only had the queso and truffle popcorn but the entire menu looked excellent. The hotel appeared a little cold and stuffy online for our taste for a stay, but I've since changed my mind after having... More

We stayed in the Driskill for Thanksgiving of 2016. We ate breakfast only, and the food was great. The setting is similar to the entire hotel, old yet refined. I had the bread pudding French toast. It was great. The Cheese Danish is absolutely perfect. I had the hangover omelet on another day, and it was good. The chorizo was... More

This hotel is lovely, our room was on the small side, but very clean and nicely decorated. The bar area was also very well done and the staff very attentive. The down sides to the hotel were that ther is no pool, a strange thing really and a shame, also the valet parking was very expensive! The location was good... More
