Seating was crowded and the noise deafening. Service was slow. Worse the waitress forgot my main dish. The food was so, so. My water glass was refilled twice without prompting. The ambiance was plastic horse flesh.

From out of town and stopped here because it was convenient to my meeting location. An Eclectic place but cozy and the waitress and wait staff were very friendly and helpful. Food with someone on the average size but tasty didn't seem to have a signature dish. Portions were plentiful an overall good experience possibly a better atmosphere for dinner.

Once again on our annual pilgrimage to Austin had to stop off at Patsy Café, before flying back to Long beach. Nothing had changed in this cowgirl bar, ordered the same Fried Steak with Cracked Pepper Gravy and mashed potatoes, food was still good But also this time tried pecan chicken and a tortilla soup bowl, both a pleasant surprise....

I was pleasantly surprised at my lunch outing. I only had a salad but it was massive and delicious. Only wished I had room leftover for dessert.

This place is great. Good food and great service. Helps to get there early because it gets packed on the lunch hour.

We had to be Austin for surgery and found this place down the road from Our hotel. The atmosphere was inviting and the live music was Western swing, I think. Very good. The Sandra Bullock sandwich with onion rings was really tasty and a lot of food.

This was a fun place to eat. The food is named after famous Austin people. Great burgers. Delicious chicken fried steak. Fabulous salmon. Yummy veggies. Great staff. Live band on a Wednesday nite. The back room was a little dark but the food was great!
