Attended a wine dinner at Mattie's, which only opened about six weeks ago. New restaurants routinely show rough edges but not so for Mattie's. Everything from the valet to the wine list are near perfect. Our menu featured a number of Mattie's favorite dishes: a...More

My husband and I dined at Mattie's for Easter brunch. It is difficult to review Mattie's on its own merit because I was expecting it to be the long awaited, promised, reopening of Green Pastures. It is NOT! The only thing left of Green Pastures...More

Very Nice family oriented facility. Beautiful outdoor seating or enjoy unique antique indoor seating. Food is freshly prepared with eye for detail in presentation. However menu is limited for selection. Service is friendly and attentive as well.

A meal at Green Pastures is like stepping back in time. The high ceilings and creaking hardwood floors create an excellent ambiance. The menu, while not remotely avant guarde, can be counteed upon to be consistently good. The Sunday Brunch is great for families.

The grounds are beautiful near this old mansion converted to a restaurant. Look for the live peacocks. The brunch buffet is extensive, including well labeled salads, appetizers including delicious salmon, main dishes including carved prime rib, sides and desserts. Prices are high but worth the...More

I know Green Pastures is considered an old Austin institution and I've dined there several times, but I've never walked out of there overly impressed with their food or service. My recent visit was probably my last. It was for lunch and the entire meal...More

Come sit on Mattie’s porch, under the majestic live oaks or in our delightful dining room and stay for a long visit. Partake of thoughtfully sourced, rustic farm-fresh American fare and cocktails served with a generous side of Texas hospitality. This house has hosted some real characters over the last century, young and old, formal and informal—friends & family are always welcome.
