    Well worth the price. One of, if not the best steak I have ever eaten. Everyone agreed it was excellent including the sides and desserts. We will definitely be back again!

    - If it's your first dining experience here, order the skillet potatoes. You won't regret it. - On this night, the mushrooms were cool when brought to our table. And they weren't anything to write home about. - Australian rack of lamb was delicious. - Drinks are on point here. The bottle of wine they featured that had a bit of every varietal mixed together was delicious! Worth the $99

    It was my 51st Birthday dinner date for two and a place I've been wanting to try for years. Since it was a weeknight it was easy to get a desired reservation time. The prime ribeye was cooked medium well just how I like it. I don't drink alcohol or wine and our waiter had them make sweet tea for me. He didn't forget to cap the evening off with a small desert. We both enjoyed it.

    We returned to Bob's Steak and Chop to celebrate out 10 year wedding anniversary as we had out legal/civil wedding reception there. The atmosphere was amazing and the food was delicious and well portioned! My wife and I were very pleased with the service that was provided and the hospitality of the staff, especially Jacob, our waiter, who was very attentive! Definitely recommend!

    I have been to Bobs many times . A lot in Dallas , Plano and Austin. I was clear with the server it was a special dinner and we would be at a leisure pace. I felt rushed . Two large parties were sat and basically we then had less than standard Bobs service . I didn’t get the bottled water I ordered , had to find the server to pay my bill . Overall just not a great experience like I always have had.

    While in Austin for the totality, a number of local residents suggested we try Bob’s for a traditional steak dinner. The atmosphere is dark wood clubhouse. The menu is also classic steakhouse fare done right. We enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and a wedge salad before diving into perfectly cooked filets with stuffed baked potatoes. Everything was well executed and attention was paid to my medical gluten free dining needs. While pricey, if you are looking for a traditional local steakhouse that honors Texas, this classic is worth a visit.

    Bobs is always awesome! Only consideration for this trip was the large party seated immediately next to us at a large table as we were in the immediately adjacent booth. Most other tables were available, so a little more room between parties would have been ideal. Otherwise awesome and all the staff are always awesome.

    We were seated at 6:45 and they had us out the door in under an hour. It was exceptionally rushed for such a nice restaurant. We expected to be able to sit and talk and enjoy our meal. Our server encouraged us to order everything all at once and she would course it appropriately. Our salad came before we finished the app and then the steaks arrived as they were taking our salad away. We were never even asked if we wanted a second drink. It was very clear they just wanted us to finish as quickly as possible. We couldn't even think about dessert after being served 3 courses in 45 minutes. Overall, the experience was highly disappointing. I will not go back.

    Disappointing visit this year for V-Day with the kids. We were there early and seemed everyone was in the weeds from the beginning while the restaurant was not full. Constantly had dirty plates, no refills, forgot wine (had to go to the bar to order that was 'backed up' yet all 3 bartenders were easily accessible and available - more like forgot to put in order). Not end of the world, but was extremely disappointing for 1K dinner and special night for the kids.

    Was disappointed in the food. Steak was average (Filet Mignon 9 oz.). Caesar Salad was very good as was the carrot and potatoes that accompanied the steak. The sautéed mushrooms were not very good at all. Service was very good. Large group in our room was noisy. Valet parking was terrible. It took 20-25 minutes for thenm to bring me my car.

    Disappointed. The steak was fantastic and that’s it. We planned a 50th bday dinner and the experience was disappointing. The restaurant was cold inside. Even the valet guys had a heater. The appetizers/salad and service were subpar. Our meal came out after 2 other tables got served with no explanation. It was expensive. This restaurant does not meet up with other Austin upscale steakhouse’s. Great place for a Thursday evening to watch a game and eat great steak, not a special occasion restaurant.

    I’m a long-time Bob’s fan - spending pretty much all “special occasion dinners” with them. We cut our NYE dinner short after the manager was rude and condescending while asking us to “keep it down” or it would be our “last dining experience at Bob’s.” Our server assured us he didn’t a problem with our volume nor had he received any complaints. Even IF our party of 6 was being “too rowdy” on NYE [eye roll] - there was a much better way to deescalate that situation. Our server did his best too smooth over the situation but our friends were so disgusted, we closed our bill, apologized to our server and left before salads had even come out.

    Terrible experience. For the price point and to feel like I dined at Longhorn steak house was surprising! I can’t even blame it on NYE … it wasn’t busy! Food was cold, drinks were eh. Old Fashioned was $30.00 and there was nothing special about it, white wine wasn’t chilled. The lobster Mac and cheese minus the lobster. All of this could be overlooked, but it’s the lack of hospitality! This place isn’t cheap and you expect a dining experience. It was our anniversary and they did nothing! We booked the reservation and mentioned this was a special occasion and that we were celebrating our anniversary and not one single word about it! Even when we mentioned it. We did ask to speak to a manager about our food being served ice cold and he seemed more annoyed than anything. Even asked what we would like him to do. You tell me since you’re the manager! There are other places I’ll stick to for special occasions… Trulucks, Perry’s to name a few!
