At Culinary Dropout, raise your glass to friends coming together. A place where food and music are life. Join us at happy hour for ice cold beer and our famous soft pretzels with provolone fondue. At dinner, a signature cocktail and slow braised 36-hour pork ribs are a perfect pair. While you and your crew enjoy damn good food and drinks, a local band plays live for great vibes. Come hang out and stay a while.

    Overall enjoyable experience and good food. The front desk staff were amazing! We had a fly issue and the management was helpful. It was a bit of a wait for food, even on Sunday and the noise level was high inside with the music and singing, which made it difficult to talk, but the food and atmosphere made it a good choice.

    I went here for a business lunch. The prime rib sandwich was amazing and my coworker enjoyed the turkey pastrami. Overall great experience. If you are tight on time for lunch, might need to ask them to speed it up.

    Culinary Dropout is my absolute favorite restaurant in all on the Austin area. (Maybe all of Texas) The cocktails are unbeatable. The Playboi Stache is to die for. I have tried probably half of the menu and never had a dish I didn’t like. The crispy bread changed my life. I bring everyone here who is visiting Austin because this restaurant exudes Austin energy. Clay is SUCH an amazing server!!! All of the servers blend into the environment which I really like. 100/10 MUST TRY

    I reserved a “Standard” (NOT PATIO) table for two. When we arrived, we were seated outside - no explanation was given- for the switch from standard to Patio. Soon it started drizzling - then a heavy downpour. Food was average. Ambience was ZERO. We had previously shortlisted your location for a wedding rehearsal dinner in May 2025. We will now be looking at other locations. It’s also unlikely that we will be back again.

    Not bad not great. Service was fair, pricing was significantly overpriced for what it was. Drinks were very light on alcohol, prices about double of what other restaurants charge. Food was fine, but not anything to recommend

    Long wait time from sitting to eat. Took over an hour for 4 dishes to come out. and the table next to us recieved their food before us despite sitting after they just had a different server. We’ve been going here for over 2 years and always loved it but this service was not up to par

    We used open table to make reservations for a group of 6 for a birthday dinner. Making the reservation was easy. It asked if we wanted standard indoor or outdoor dining. Being pregnant in Texas in late June the choice was definitely inside! When we checked in at 8:27 for our 8:30 reservation we were told we need to wait until our reservation time. Which, whatever that’s fine just odd how oddly specific they were. Never had that before we all the reservations we have made in the past. Once 8:30 hit they took us to our outdoor table. We said that we specifically made a reservation indoors due to the heat and being pregnant. They said oh sorry our system messes up and sets you anywhere but if we want indoors then it’s going to be another 30 minutes. We went ahead and just ate outside. Super frustrating when you try to be proactive and it doesn’t matter. They said it happens a lot … wouldn’t you do something about it?! Just odd. The food was solid. Portion sizes were good for the prices. Just a crappy way to start off a birthday dinner celebration.
