    The waiter was great, the coffee was great, biscuits were great. ....But the food, oh no, it was like slop. I got the breakfast hash and as I said, it was a wet, soggy pile of slop. My friend got the migas and it was also a wet pile of slop. We pushed the food around our plates and asked for it to go because we didn't want to be rude. I threw it out when I got home. For the price point and having to make a reservation pretty far out in advance (the last time I came here I showed up 5 minutes before they opened and the hostess straight up told me to go home because they were booked for the entire day), COMPLETELY not worth it, unfortunately. With tip, our meal was $125. I was pretty shocked at how bad it was because the food looks so good online and when I see food-influencers eat at Jacoby's on instagram, which is why I went here in the first place.

    Service and atmosphere are amazing. The drinks are good just slightly overpriced but worth it. The food was lackluster. We got the deviled egg and boudin balls to start. The eggs were kind of flavorless and the boudin balls had a liver aftertaste. We split the citrus salad which was amazing and then the butcher cut ribeye. It was paper thin and tasted slightly old. The mashed potatoes tasted like boxed and the gravy had no flavor. I truly enjoyed the roasted carrots though those were delicious. I would like to go back for the burger as I was told that’s their number one item.

    There was a hair in the food, and we were unaware who our server was. We sat for 2 hours for our experience. We we did not have someone come to our table for 30 minutes of being there. Customer service was awful at this restaurant, however it was a very cute place

    Food was good but the reservation online didn’t specify seating was only available outside and in 100+ degree heat that would have been nice to know! Know it’s not a huge restaurant but even just clarifying at time of reservation is helpful.

    Overall our group had a good time - however, things started off poorly. I called two days in advance to ensure we had a table for 9+infant inside, it's been very hot recently. When we arrived the hostess tried to seat us at a table [meant for 6] that had 8 chairs squeezed. We ended up having to sit outside which was a sweaty rough way to dine - and our infant was not handling the heat well. We were there to celebrate my wife's bday and ended up having to spend most of our meal catering to an overheated baby walking inside several times to cool him off. Overall the wait staff, food, etc made up for it but, very disappointed especially with the early advance call to the restaurant.

    I can’t believe the majority of seating in this restaurant is outside. This is Austin. It is in the 100s for days and outside seating is brutal. Their beef was the highlight. Cocktails were good, but low ok alcohol content. Staff was attentive, especially the team at the hostess stand who managed my frustration with outside seating beautifully.

    I've been to Jacoby's many times - first time leaving a review. It's a great one size fits all kind of place, good for brunch, a fancy dinner, or a HH/casual hang with friends. Super cute decor and well designed all around. Make a reservation on OpenTable before you go. The parking is a bit tight, you can either shell out for valet or risk your life parking on the side of cesar Chavez - for some reason it's almost always flooded and a pitted mess. I was seated outside, which was worrisome for a dinner in the summertime, but they have tons of fans with misters and it's very heavily shaded and under a covering, so it says about as cool as it can. Service is fine, I've never been over the top pleased but also not disappointed. I went this week for the all-night happy hour on Wednesdays, which features $5 drafts and a couple specialty cocktails for $7, $7 starters and $5 off cheeseburgers and fries. We tried an array of the starters - deviled eggs, Texas caviar, boudin balls, and pimento cheese. They were all fine. Nothing super memorable. I think the pimento cheese and baguette was probably the best, I felt like most items were lacking a touch of salt. For entrees, my sister and I split a cheeseburger and fries, and my tablemates tried the salmon and a burger with tots. The tots were extremely strange, almost like a mashed potato or hush puppy, Brazilian cheese bread type interior. The burger is very delicious, I do highly recommend it. However, some of our fries were still frozen. Honestly I've had better experiences at Jacoby's so I'm not really sure what happened yesterday but I'm averaging it in with all my previous visits that were MUCH better.

    10 Oz ribeye was mostly fat, but it had a great flavor without much seasoning. The chicken fried steak had a great batter, but was tough so much to the point I didn’t enjoy eating it. The mashed potatoes and roasted carrots are legit and the stuffed yeast rolls were great although just a rendition on a chopped brisket sandwich. Overall the ambience was good, but I don’t think I would dine here again for the price and the quality of food.

    We arrived early and had drinks outside to enjoy the great view and sunset from their backyard. We dined inside in a quaint room where we were able to enjoy the delicious starters, entrees, and each other’s company. My wife and we’re entertaining her visiting work colleague from Philly and sent her back home with a true testimony to what a wonderful entertainment scene we have an Austin.

    Second time there. Wife's shrimp and grits was very good; my steak frites was less than average. I like the cut of steak frites and i ordered this because of jacoby beef connection to restaurant. Poor quality of meet; very chewey and undercooked. ( i ordered medium). Wine selection not great. salad very good. Server not real knowledgeable but i get the issues with finding people. We'll go back and try again.

    Had a wonderful Saturday brunch. We started with a cold brew martini. We elected to have it on the rocks and it came with a square ice cube made from coffee. Excellent. The hash was amazing and so was the in house made sausage. Strawberry cake is a must have. Brought home a cinnamon bun. Super yummy!

    Farm to table doesn't mean overcooked protein. The chicken on the salad was dry, the stuffed chicken breast entree was also dry, Finally, the pork loin was also dry. The service and cocktails were awesome! Hopefully, a little less time overcooking the meat and perfection shall be reached!
