“Small, New, or Offbeat Apparently, an upscale steak and seafood establishment is just what the doctor ordered for quality-restaurant-starved North Austinites. On a recent Monday evening (yes, Monday), the parking lot was packed, and the wait stretched on for at least an hour and a half. Thankfully, both the food-from rich yet not overwhelming crab corn chowder to the “exotic” catch of the day (swordfish, flawlessly grilled and served over potato hash and creamed corn)-and the impeccable service gave the people what they came for.”
– Texas Monthly
