Satellite, located in far South Austin, is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant and bar. The food is prepared as requested and it is delicious. The service is friendly and helpful and the ambiance is relaxed. I have dined here on several occasions and I have always come away satisfied with the experience.

This year we had brunch at the Satellite on the day of Christmas Eve. The service was attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. This is a great neighborhood restaurant in the Circle C Ranch development. Give it a try.

Limited menu on Sundays but it was delicious. They always have a pancake special of the day and some great eggs benedict selections. I took the kids who both order the giant pancake with blueberries. It was huge and they couldn't finish but admitted it was delish. Good Mimosas...relaxing vibe...cool decor.

Ate lunch here with a couple of friends recently and it is really a neat place. The food was prepared well. Good choice of sandwiches and soups and wraps and drinks. Good staff. Good available parking. A nice experience and out of this world atmosphere.

Just had the most delicious burger on a gluten free bun. They serve it with thin perfectly cooked fries with a side of their own sweet smoky tomatoe jam. OMGood! Apparently the owner is gluten free so they are very gluten aware and have a knowledgeable friendly staff. The other item we've gotten that's out-a-sight is a Avocado crab stuffed... More

The Satellite Bistro and Bar serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday, and we dined at this popular neighborhood restaurant on Sunday around noon. The place was packed but we were fortunate to arrive just as a party of eight to ten people were leaving following a birthday celebration. I have eaten at this restaurant previously, but this was the first... More

Description
At Satellite, fresh ingredients & hearty plates are always in orbit. Modern meets retro on the menu (contemporary spins on classic American faves) & on the walls (cool bistro with a futuristic '60s feel). Outfitted with sleek table tops, retro-mod chairs & plenty of lounge-worthy booths, Satellite is a versatile dining destination that's equally comfy for brunch OR for a Weekend Night On-The-Town. Satellite...Eat. Drink. Orbit.
