The Republic is a very nice place to enjoy a meal with family and friends. The service is great as well as the food. The atmosphere is charming and quaint. This restaurant is a must go to place when in College Station/Bryan Texas. Enjoy!

We have been to the republic many times, and loved it every time. Amazing bar, great steaks, great sides, always feel just wonderful there. (Plan on 2 1/2 hours or more and expensive, but well worth it).

There is no question that the Republic offers the best steaks in town. Unfortunately, it stopped evolving and slowly settled into the " good old steakhouse" with the standard menu items that you find all over the US (scallops, steak, cheesecake...).

We use to be regulars to the Republic. It was our special occasion place. But their quality has recently suffered. My 7 oz filet came on a plate much too large for most things, let alone just a small steak. It was garnished with a very small piece of lettuce in the left corner. The good steak was cheapened by...

There were lots of creative, inviting dishes from which to choose. Interesting selection of liquor, including the hard-to-find Willet bourbon, and a local whiskey. Started with chicken-fried oysters and steak tartare, and both were outstanding. Despite being known for steak, my server recommended the pork chop. It sounded great, but I was a bit disappointed. It was tasty, but the... More

My wife and older son dined here for his 35th birthday celebration. The food was good and the service was attentive. The bar is outstanding and a great place for an after work happy hour.

Eating here to celebrate a college graduation was a perfect choice. The service was at a luxury level, making us feel pampered for our special night. The food was excellent and the attention and advice given to our gluten-free guest was exceptional.

Thank mapleRose
