We had taken another couple out for a special evening to The Republic. It was as a busy Friday night and our waiter seemed elusive. At the end of the evening we had to wait for our check. During this time, another staff person came to our table and asked us to please hurry and move along. They had others waiting to be seated. We explained that we would love to move on, but were still waiting on our waiter to return our credit card! It was very odd. They never apologized even though it was totally their fault that we took so long. We will ever return.

Friendly staff, attentive waiters, good food. The filet was done perfectly and seasoned great, served with four different steak sauces but it was also great all by itself. The calamari was very good also and came with good sauce as well. The brussel sprouts were a little underdone but had great flavor. Desert was great we had the apple french toast with ice cream and the staff wrote Happy Anniversary on the plate for us, very nice touch! The drinks were also done right, we had martinis

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.
