We stopped in on a Saturday morning for breakfast before our flight. We were immediately seated and the restaurant was clean and the employees were friendly. The biscuit and gravy are to die for! The gravy was JUST like my southern grandmother’s sausage gravy. The...More

The cocktails and queso were great! Enjoyed the margaritas with olives... Different! The steak sandwich was adequate, but the blue cheese on the burger was nasty... Tasted like WD-40. Service was friendly, but a bit hit-or-miss. Go for the cocktails and appetizers, then head somewhere...More

Sorry, telling it like it is. Not a very pleasant experience. It is very annoying when you ask for a hamburger and a salad, you ask for the salad to come out first, and it comes out together. I mean, come on. Because of the...More

The first Waterloo Ice House opened its doors on Congress Avenue in 1976. A casual neighborhood gathering spot serving hot, handmade meals and ice cold beer for an eclectic mix of Austin business people, students, artists and musicians. Not much has changed since our opening over 30 years ago. Waterloo Ice House still embodies that Hill Country spirit of gathering with friends and family for a cold beer and spending time together eating, laughing and talking. Not only the perfect dining destination, Waterloo Ice House has also become a legendary live music venue, giving artists like Lyle Lovett and Uncle Walt's Band their start. Our dining room still comes alive with the sounds of Austin's best musicians.
