I took a friend (Austin native) - who has never been here before. I tried the filet and lobster combo (lobster fried per the recommendation from the waiter). Coupled that with the pan fried potatoes and gravy.. great combo! Of course, all good meals begin with a Tito's martini in Austin.. and I liked the pickles that they have thoughtfully... More

That is how we all felt when we walked out into the cold January night. The food was spectacular. Try the Lamb Lollipops, you will be delighted. All of our beef entrees were exquisite...I forgot the delicious lobster bisque. We asked Basil, our excellent server, for chocolate covered strawberries for dessert and they custom made some for us, yummy! We... More

My wife dined here during our stay in Austin and everything was perfect. All the beef is USDA prime. We ordered the 28 oz porterhouse medium rare, cut family style to share. The steak arrived cut away from the bone with 2 hot plates and it was cooked perfectly, tender, with great flavor. Our sides were the smashed potato and... More

Having grown up in Omaha, Nebraska I know what good Prime beef means. But living in sunny beach weather South Carolina I can't find it so I eat Prime seafood! I looked forward to trying Texas beef. I was super pleased with Bob's 28 oz Prime Porterhouse steak my husband and I shared! Oh my gosh from walking in the... More

Bobs hosted our annual Christmas dinner. We had about 70 people in a private room. The service, food and wine was all excellent. They had many servers standing by to wait on our party. The meals were all delivered at about the same time, so no tables or individuals were sitting waiting. We had an excellent time and highly recommend... More

I asked my host to take us to the best steak in town and off we went to Bobs. Cozy, dark and upscale, we were led to a comfy booth. As I was reading the menu, I noticed they had a signature side added to every plate....a CARROT! It was a large whole carrot cooked to perfection with a slight... More

I was in town for business and a group of 10 of us were there. They staff was very helpful and attentive. More importantly, the food was delicious! My steak (ribeye) was cooked to perfection. It was soft and buttery and I didn't need to do anything to it but eat it. No salt, no pepper and definitely no sauce!... More

Ate dinner with a business group. We did not have reservations and the staff did a great job of arranging a table for us without any fuss, despite being busy that night. Service continued to be excellent all night. The menu is typical for a high-end American steak house, ad knowing that all dishes were well prepare. Portion sizes are... More

The steaks were incredible and the service was outstanding. One of the best - if not the best - steak house in Austin. Don't miss it.

Our Steaks Are Prime, Our Portions Big & Our Drinks Stiff.

Since the opening of the first Bob’s Steak & Chop House in Dallas, Texas, in 1993, the name “Bob’s” has been synonymous with a great steakhouse experience. Building on the reputation we earned at our original Dallas location, Bob’s has opened restaurants nationwide that offer the best cuts of meat available.

Each Bob’s location has its own unique personality, but all strictly uphold the same exceptional dining and service standards. We treat each customer as a VIP at every location, so you can dine with us in Dallas, San Francisco or Nashville, and feel like you are at your favorite Bob’s every time. Our combination of simple elegance, lively atmosphere, big drinks, fine wines and large cuts of the finest prime steaks, chops and seafood make Bob’s the best steakhouse in any town.

It starts with our beef. Always Prime, we hand select our steaks from the top 2% of all beef. Perfectly trimmed and expertly grilled, our steaks are the best anywhere. To accompany our steaks we make every dish in house; from our famous pickles and even more famous warm loaves of bread, to all our sides and desserts. Our chefs keep it simple; no gimmicks, no list of ingredients you can’t pronounce. We don’t try to prove how smart we are, but rather how smart you are for dining at Bob’s.

Bob’s Steak & Chop House has continually been recognized as one of the best steakhouses in the country, and continues to serve up the high caliber of service and steaks for which we’ve become known. Come visit us at any Bob’s location and enjoy the taste of prime beef served by people who take real pride in the name “Bob’s Steak & Chop House.

”Located in the heart of downtown Austin, Bob's Steak & Chop House is an Austin Steakhouse that offers the best. It is mere blocks from the Austin Convention Center, Austin City Limits and the State Capital. The only Bob's location to offer full dining on our luxurious roof top bar!
