The surroundings were definitely the highlight. This is a beautiful old building which has been well maintained & restored. The food & service at the grill were average. Many things on the menu were not available until after 5pm, we were there at 4pm.

Had a five course meal; spent over $300 for two; not impressed with any of the courses; they were all mediocre.

Check out the bar/lounge on the second floor. Incredible history throughout and the bartenders are fantastic. We really enjoyed our short visit and can't wait to grab another specialty cocktail there.

You gotta stop in here if in downtown Austin. The history is just fantastic. It's very fun to soak up the atmosphere. Have a drink at the bar, write a country song, feel the history - you can't beat the Driskill for a kick back in time. We loved it!

I went to the Driskill for the first time to celebrate my birthday with friends. I was super excited to try it and see all the holiday decorations. The tree was gorgeous and there were two extremely helpful employees who were cheerful and helped me find my group with a smile! The evening went downhill from there. The service at... More

Driskill Grill: Thanksgiving at $89/person was disappointing. Good soup and veggies, it just went downhill from there. Inedible pork belly, a slice of turkey roll? (unrecognizable), and a tiny and not tasty dessert block of something. Nice service, lovely room. So disappointing to spend $158 each for three after wine = $474. At least we enjoyed the wine. They missed... More

Dinner with 3 friends on Thanksgiving Day. The food was delicious. Main courses offered a nice selection; sides were served family style. No complaints in terms of food. Service was okay, but not at the level expected for the restaurant. Would definitely return and hope the service would step up a bit.

There were 12 of us for dinner for a special family event. We had a semi-private area. The restaurant is beautiful and elegant looking. We had no issues with noise even though the restaurant was full. Dinner was delicious and I heard no issues with anyone's appetizers or dinner. The pre-dinner amuse bouche was very flavorful. Three things that I... More
