Had a lovely time eating on the cool patio with our dog. They had happy hour on Sunday til 7pm. Really good food. I had a lemony shrimp pasta with huge shrimp and a bunch of mushrooms in it...so creamy and good. I tasted my mom's beef stroganoff and it was out of this world. I like how they served... More

In Austin for a week, our 1st stop was North by Northwest restaurant & brewery. I'm not a beer drinker, they offer their own brewed beer and a variety of IPA's. I had my usual prosecco, we had wings & habenero mac & cheese. Both were good, they have a beer deal, buy a glass and you get 20 refills... More

Love the food here. Beer is pretty decent too. They have a nice English bitter that I like. They also have bombers available to go.

We went there for lunch. I had the crab cakes from the appetizers menu instead of the brunch menu. I also tried the mimosa. The portion size was good enough to serve as my lunch. We also tried their roasted garlic bulbs which were excellent. My hubby tried the lamb burger which was succulent. Their food menu seems good enough... More

I came here with friends who had kids and it was great. We waited in a little sittings area off the bar where we had beer and onion rings while the kids colored. Our bar waitress seemed to hate life. But the hostess was adorable and kept checking on us. When we sat, we were basically ready to order. Our... More

First time going here and the Happy Hour was crowded. Luckily we came for dinner because seating in the bar was sparse. It took a little longer than I preferred to see our waiter, but when he came, he was attentive and good. My friend ordered the daily special, a blackened trout, which she thought was a bit bland. I... More

Ok let's get the bad out of the way - the parking spaces are lined out way too narrow! I bet they are 2" wider than most cars. I had to climb into my car via passenger seat! Good stuff - food, beers and service. Ahi tuna salad for me wife, PPM pizza for me (pepperoni, pepperoni and mushrooms). I... More

Enjoyed a birthday meal with the family. Our waiter, Jeff, was super efficient. The food was good--crab cakes (yum), chicken ziti pasta dish (also tasted great). We enjoyed 3 different desserts - créme brulee, peach cobbler, and chocolate cake. Peach cobbler and chocolate cake were large enough to share, and all very tasty.

Excellent food and prices. Our party had a great duck breast, grilled salmon and chicken Cobb salad between us. Service on the other hand, left something to be desired, but no more than typical when keeping it weird. Hostess asked us if we wanted Happy Hour or seating, with no explanation of what either entailed. We kind of were hoping... More

We have dined here maybe a half dozen times, and have never left disappointed. The service is always excellent, and the food is tasty with a varied selection--everything from salads, to burgers, to pizza & pasta & more. They also brew their own beer. There is a small bar and a large parking lot. The décor is pleasing (brick/fireplaces/etc) to... More
