We have dined here maybe a half dozen times, and have never left disappointed. The service is always excellent, and the food is tasty with a varied selection--everything from salads, to burgers, to pizza & pasta & more. They also brew their own beer. There is a small bar and a large parking lot. The décor is pleasing (brick/fireplaces/etc) to... More

We came in for a late breakfast on a Saturday. We were seated promptly and immediately ordered Bloody Mary's. They are simple but delicious my only recommendation being that they have some hot sauce available for both the drinks as well as the food. The only thing they had was tabasco. Our server was friendly and attentive and we were... More

I attended a bridal shower and was impressed by the private room with big stone fireplace and wall of windows, attentive service, and excellent food.

Group of 7, sit on round table at the corner. The waiter can't reach the people on the back, but was very nice and gentle though. We had for appetizer onion rings (delicious), a sampler of sea food (also delicious) and a plate with some corn bread dipping in some soup, taste good, but it look very messy. I had... More

The location is nice there was a smell of spoiled beer on the patio as we arrived. The appettizure we got was fried calamari it arrived very quick which was not a good thing. The calamari was under cooked and we had to send them back. The next set was mostly cooked but we still got a few pieces that... More

Had dinner there, last day of my trip. Fresh, generous salad, ribeye cooked to my preference (medium rare), and their featured beer (a full bodied pilsner). Good atmosphere by the tables, the front was too noisy for my taste. Strongly recommend.

We were driving into Austin for the first time and just happened to spot North by Northwest, so we decided to stop for lunch. We are glad we did. Very nice place. The menu has a lot of choices and the prices were reasonable. We had their Greek omelet and a large green salad with chicken. Both were very good.... More

We came in late one night and had a couple beers. We did not try the food unfortunately. They had a good number of local beers on draft, service was good, and the bar had a nice ambiance.

I last ate here in 2005 and was rather disappointed this time. Our onion ring appetizer was bland and overly crunchy. Our entrees were a bit better, but I think I'll try another restaurant the next time I'm in Austin.

I like this restaurant for its atmosphere more than its food. The food is good, as well as the beer, but the atmosphere is great. Especially on a cold winter day sitting in front of the fireplace.
