Brazos Bar & Grill is a great, friendly upscale bar inside the Indigo Hotel in downtown Waco. The food is outstanding. This is not your typical hotel fare. The green chili queso is killer as is the coconut shrimp. Chicken nachos and avocado tacos are favorites. Chicken Montelongo, chicken breast stuffed with baby spinach and Buffalo mozzarella topped with shiitake... More

My sister and I had a road trip to Waco and decided to try the Brazos Bar & Bistro. We went to Magnolia Market & asked the trolley driver to take us to the Indigo Hotel. Our server, Stephanee, was awesome and helpful. My sister loved her bison burger and grilled vegetables and stayed on her strict diet. This decadent... More

The food was great and so was the atmosphere! It is located inside the Hotel Indigo where we stayed. It's also down the street and a quick walk to Magnolia Homes Silos and the show Fixer Upper on HGTV!

A really small $14 pour? Maybe, maybe not, half the size of what you get down the street at the Hilton.

We stopped in for an early lunch after despairing of getting inside the nearby but overcrowded Magnolia Market at the Silos, and were pleasantly impressed. The food was good and the decor is nice, though the space is very open - basically just an arm of the hotel lobby. Their wine list was adequate, though disappointingly sparse with Texas vintages...

Really enjoyed lunch at this interesting restaurant. The atmosphere is open and casual, as it is basically off the lobby of the Hotel Indigo. The menu includes many options with avocado, which is a refreshing change. Everything was delicious and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. The only drawback is that they have music playing generally in the background... More

Tried this restaurant because of closeness to our B and B and ratings from Trip Advisor. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner! Amadeus was our waiter who gave us suggestions about the menu and his service was perfect. We dined on the cheese tray, Brazos salad, JR Ewing burger, beef tenderloin, stuffed advacado and the yellow fin tuna tacos. All were fabulous!
