I thought I was going to hate this place. We boys in the family flew in for the A&M/UNM game with reservations here for 8:45 Friday night. They were PACKED. No table, no room at the bar, no nothing. But the hostess staff moved heaven and earth to get us seated. They could not have been better.

Our waiter came out and got everything going from there. He was simply the best. The bar staff made sure we got a couple of wonderful bottles of wine at the lower end of their wine list.

The food was so good that it"s hard to do it justice in print. We split an artesianal cheese plate and steak tartare. Five cheeses, all kinds of wonderful accompaniments (the bacon jam is delicious). And the tartare was the best I've ever tasted. For entree the guys had the filet and the pork (wow, that pork was good), and loved them. I had the chicken-fried FILET (of all things) and it was marvelous. I'd order it again and again.

Then dessert, after-dinner drinks, and we were out the door with one of the best dining experiences imaginable. This is top notch fine dining, boys and girls.

The Republic is the best restaurant in the Brazos Valley! The service, food and atmosphere are all top,rate. The Short Rib dinner is so tender and delicious. Served with a cauliflower mash that is very tasty. A must try! All of the steaks at The Republic can't be beat. Very moist and tender.

We first went to the Republic over 10 years ago when we moved to Bryan and have been many times since. It has been consistently superior. Nice friendly environment, friendly accommodating staff and the food is top notch, particularly the steaks. The cuts of meat are perfect and tasty, cooked to perfection. Should be on your must do list.

Great steak house with high end dishes. It is pricy, but the food and drinks are great. The service was great as well. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we had a large selection off the menu. The tuna tartar and fried calamari appetizers were really good. I loved the shrimp and grits.

If you would like an upscale dinner, definitely try it out.

They do require reservations and it is packed every night. The parking lot is tight, so consolidate cars.
AND it’s on a one way road that is not marked as you leave the restaurant, so make sure you turn left!
