I recently hosted a business meeting for 16 on a busy Friday night. The service and food could not have been better. Great wine list too! Nick who handled the wine and our overall evening was great! Great steaks! I will definitely return on my next visit to Austin.

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.

We preferred to have dinner on the rooftop bar with a more relaxed atmosphere. The food was very good but a bit ordinary.

Everything was good except the steak. I was a guest, as part of a group, during my visit, or else I would have demanded a new steak or my money back. My steak, a filet, was as dry, tough, and tasteless as a piece of cardboard. Note that everyone at my table asked for steak sauce of some kind as... More

When you think of a traditional fine dinning steak house, that is what you get at Bobs. The service was amazing (my child ordered a chocolate milk, which the Restauraunt did not have, so he ran across the street and purchased one). Steaks were cooked to perfection, and the carrot was a nice treat. We brought our kids, and even... More

Bobs never fails to impress! Their bone in filet was tender, flavorful, and perfectly prepared to medium rare. They load the baked potato old school style, and their salads and sides(creamed spinach in particular) are tremendous complements. Others at the table raved about the ribeye and strip, and their wines are reasonably priced!

Very upscale steakhouse in downtown Austin. I wasn't all that impressed with the primerib I ordered. It was overdone, and fatty, and for the price I would have expected better.
