I love this place. The food was pretty good. The service is the outstanding part! The portions are huge and it’s pretty cheap for the serving sizes you get.

Feels like an old building when you walk in. Had a very short wait for lunch. Husband had the meatloaf...loved it. I had their salad with shrimp. Our friends had their fajita salad. We all agreed, amazing food. Will not go wrong by trying them out

Our building has a history that dates back over 150 years -- there's so much history within our walls, Janet. We are glad the wait wasn't long and that your dishes were delicious. Tell your husband our meatloaf is always on the menu -- for when the craving strikes. We hope to see you guys soon for more comfort food.

Thank You,
Jordan

Great drinks. Very kind people. The lemonade drink was very refreshing. Good parking next door. We played Dominoes as we relaxed with our cocktails.

We are so happy that you came in and had a relaxing time with a lemonade cocktail and dominoes, Renee! That sounds like the perfect way to spend an afternoon or evening in Austin. We hope to see you again soon. The dominoes will be waiting.

Thank You,

Tuesday night and a one hour wait.
Sounds bad, but let me tell you, wait it out, you will not be disappointed.
They have a very nice patio bar that we had a few drinks at while we waited and before we knew it, the table was ready.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Food was great and portions were large.
A must eat at restaurant.

We are thrilled that you came in for dinner! As a popular spot in downtown Austin, our wait can be a bit long at times -- thanks for making the best of it! A cocktail by the patio, among locals and visitors alike, makes waiting to be seated a fun experience. We hope to see you again next time you are in Austin.

Thank you,
Jordan

My wife & I decided to try this out since it was right across the street from the Visitors Center where the tour van dropped us off and we wanted some lurch.
Even though it was only about 11:15, there was a wait, so we sat at the bar and ordered a drink. Shortly our buzzer went off and we were seated.
My wife ordered the Cheeseburger & I ordered the Chicken & Waffles. Be aware this is a farm to market restaurant which means the prices are generally higher!
My wife said her cheeseburger was good. My chicken was good, a little bit too much coating on it, the waffle was over done, kind of hard. disappointing for the price!
Overall we weren't too impressed. next time we'll do our research before choosing a place blindly.

Thanks for coming in during your visit to Austin, John! We are glad that we were able to find you a table quickly during our lunch service and that your wife enjoyed her burger. We are sorry that we didn't impress you with the waffle -- our waiter would have been glad to request another from our kitchen. Making our customers happy is very important to us. Thanks for giving us a try and for sharing your feedback.

Best,
Jordan
