We were searching for a place to eat downtown in Abliene and Cypress Station seemed the most interesting. We left extremely satisfied. The food was fantastic. They have a number of unique, interesting, and inspired menu items, with a real Texas flair. They had live background music, which complimented the nice lighting that was perfect in this historic building, full of brick walls and door frames. They brew their own beer, which we tried. It was pretty good, but not especially noteworthy. They do have a nice bar that's off by itself. Go for the food, go for the atmosphere, go to experience a great meal in downtown.

I went with friends to Cypress Street one night during my visit to Abilene. It was one of the best meals I have had in town. I had the Salmon and it was fantastic. The sides were great with it. Don't miss the raspberry tea. The desserts are amazing. I had peach cobbler, but the creme brûlée came highly recommended.

The service was quick and friendly. The atmosphere (with the exception of a couple of flies) was very good. It was bustling but quiet enough to talk and the building was really interesting. Great place!

Well yes they claim to make beer here. Tastes like extract kits to me. Leaves mouth syrupy and not very good at all. Food was mediocre at best.
I find people in Abilene rate too easy or they've never experienced quality before.

My wife and I visited this restaurant expecting a niche type culinary adventure in the cultural district of Abilene.

The decor was adrift in the 80's and the big screen tv and karaoke in the main dining room was an eyesore blocking the front windows. The carpet is pathetically dirty...so much so that it appears black until one notices the original multi-hued pattern near fixed objects.

This was a lunch visit. We found the menu to be confused in culinary identity. We ordered a burger selection and the fish n chips. The fish and fries were both of the supermarket frozen foods variety. The burger was uninspired and bland. Conversation with our server by guests at a nearby table revealed the server admitting he did not know the details of the certain menu offering and had never had it himself.

What a great location and opportunity. What a shame to see it wasted. There are lots of places in Abilene that serve better, tastier and higher quality food.
