    Great happy hour spot with cocktails and bar menu half-off. The space is clean and beautiful and the service is friendly.

    The food its just amazing. Fantastic ambiance. A lil bit expensive. They should have an spanish menu, music should be better.

    Nom. Some of the best presentation in Austin especially the desserts. Homey new american food and tasty cocktails. Oysters for those who care. Definitely worth visiting.

    Such a surprise for Austin! It's in a crappy neighborhood but you forget all about that once you go inside. They have some of the most unique and interesting drinks EVER!

    Their Hog Jowl will always have a place in my heart.

  • Sandra H.

    Upscale American dining is a great description which equates to quality over quantity in this case. Amazing food, but portions are small. For dessert, pear cake and donuts are a win.

    Everything is fantastic!

    The food was great - the calamari was great - especially salty and tasty. The NY strip was perfect and finished with cinnamon doughnuts dessert. Recommend highly!!

  • Austin T.

    One of the best happy hours in Austin. Insanely good burger and fries, great cocktails and cool atmosphere right in the epicenter of dirty sixth. Also, it's every day of the week.

    David Bull, chef of Bar Congress, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Oysters on the half shell. Read more

    Start off the meal with the fried green tomatoes, which are crisp and firm, and the Texas onion rings, crunchy and sweet. But make sure to order the all-you-can-eat family-style BBQ dinner. Read more

    Gruyere mac and cheese is exceptional

    Clinton Calder · May 29, 2014

    Raw Bar Bass is delish. Mac is good, and gnocchi is muy bueno.

    Their beer selection is so bad I'm getting water

    Brussel spouts are amazing... Tempura Quail was okay.. Best kale salad I've ever had. Great drinks

    oli maughan · March 14, 2014
  • Whitney F.

    Truffle fries and ceviche that make you want to bypass all the BBQ

    Whitney Fishman · March 9, 2014
  • Anika

    Half price on drinks and bar food until midnight tonight! And the raw bass,avocado and like was delicious yesterday

    Anika · March 6, 2014
  • Gilbert D.

    Would come back here for apps & dessert only. Was not impressed with the lamb. Steak tartare & bass were unlike anything I've ever had. A must try! Banana bread dessert was excellent!

    Gilbert Davila · February 15, 2014

    Little Island oysters!

    Shawn Cirkiel's first restaurant has made its mark as a dining oasis on Dirty Sixth. They're an especially good bet for seafood, and the rooftop seating is lovely in good weather. [Eater 38 Member]

    Large selection of oysters.

    Jason · January 3, 2014
  • David P.

    Wednesday specials: half off oysters, half off champagne. Menu changes daily. Great quality spot to eat on 6th street that isn't bar food.

    David P · October 10, 2013
  • Gregory H.

    Monday is martini night, $5 martini drinks. Happy hour is until 6:30, half price bar menu,.

    Gregory Heller · October 8, 2013
  • Dan M.

    Named because the location could have potentially been next to a park 200+ years ago.

    Dan Mateer · August 24, 2013
  • Dan K.

    The lamb chops are really good! Get the roasted wild mushrooms if they have them.

    Dan Katz · August 11, 2013
  • Cat N.

    Overall this place doesn't feel like it fits the Austin food scene. It didn't taste homemade or amazing. There is way better food (and more extensive cocktail lists) elsewhere.

    Cat Nunnery · July 31, 2013
  • Mister G.

    Recommend Ceviche, broccolini, coconut donuts

    Mister Goldy · July 22, 2013

    Get the blonde pâté!!

    Wednesday Happy Hour 1/2 off oysters 1/2 off champagne. Yes pls!

    Tara Kohler · May 16, 2013
  • Melody F.

    It's no secret but Parkside has the best happy hour in town. Cocktail specials all night Monday, bubbly + oysters on Wednesdays. Get fried okra.

    Melody Fury · May 15, 2013

    What a gem right on 6th! The bacon-wrapped salmon was to die for! Hot waiters and bar staff. Excellent cocktails!

    Will · May 6, 2013

    We love sitting at the bar..great food, great staff. Excellent oysters and ceviche. Buy the bar staff a round when the raw bar staff (Cory) wins an oyster shucking challenge from visiting celeb chefs.

    Get the raw salmon. Best I've ever had. The horseradish foam is the perfect compliment.

    Carey Cassidy · April 27, 2013
