    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!

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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

    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]

    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.

    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.
