This was our second time at Republic. We made a reservation and arrived almost 20 min early. They would not seat us until our exact reservation time even though there were tables open when we got there and the same table was empty when we left with no one having sat there. The entry way was lined with chairs as... More

Party of four, full course and everyone's food was delicious. Service was perfect (Juliette?) and the live music topped it off. One of top 3 restaurants in town I think. Prices are big city, but so was the food, drink and service...

Won't return. Did not like the Caesar salad. My husband did not like the crab cake. Tasted like a frozen crab cake. Beef tenderloin was ok. Liked that it included 4 sauces. Mashed potatoes had no flavor. Mac and cheese was very good and had a kick to it. Atmosphere was nice. Great service. Merlot by the glass was probably... More

Must visit again. We had a great time with friends. The food and drinks were excellent. Atmosphere was great. Don't forget to call ahead for reservations especially on home game weekends.

Lovely evening. A little loud for the occasion we celebrated. Live music. Started with a crab cake (not very good) followed by the crayfish soup. Ordered the NewYork Strip with sides of smoked mash potatoes and creamed spinach. I prefer a Pittsburgh style steak and they delivered. Wine list had solid options and the before dinner cocktails were fantastic. The... More

if you want excellent service along with exquisite freshly prepared food, this is the place for you. Some nights have musicians playing... Expect the best, receive the best.

I was visiting my son and wanted to take him out for his birthday. We have been talking about coming to The Republic since I read about them in Wine Spectator magazine. We both order steaks and they were cooked to our desired temperature and seasoned perfectly. The sides were delicious, but one really stood out. It was the cauliflower... More

The food at this restaurant is excellent, although pretty pricey. The filet mignon is to die for. The sides are big enough to share with your better half.

I usually go for the steaks and have never been let down. Mixed it up this time because one of the people at my table was raving about the chicken fried fillet mignon. Great choice. Be sure to order french fries too. They are outstanding!

Our favorite restaurant in Bryan/College Station is The Republic. The atmosphere is comfortable, classy, but relaxed. The wait staff is superb. They have some of the most amazing drinks and an excellent wine list. The food choices provide a good bit of variety, but they all have seasonings that make them stand out. We take friends there, and we always... More
