This attractive, comfortable place has exceptional small-dish food, great drinks, and a stunning wine list.
612 W. Sixth + 512/474-2194
This may be a bar providing Alamo Drafthouse moviegoers with a new foraging alternative, but Chef John Bullington's snacky menu includes interpretations of classic Mexican street food, such as N.Y. Strip alambras and a giant Sonoran hot dog. Brunch is exciting as well, what with tangy avocado tomatilla sauces, and poblanos in the chichimigas.
5701 W. Slaughter + 512/861-7069
It's not just about beer, although they are brewing up some of the best pils and IPAs in Central Texas. It's also about the sophisticated pizza. You can't beat the one with Gulf oysters. Read our review.
1305 W. Oltorf + 512/298-2242
Offering a daily chef's selection of skillfully prepared seasonal and local small plates that use everything from sauerkraut to sunchokes. Read our review.
2024 S. Lamar + 512/394-8150
Start with the fried jalapeños, or a cornbread, and try the sandwiches or dinner entrées as you work through the local brews. Read our review.
7020 Easy Wind #100 + 512/452-2337
2400 E. Cesar Chavez + 512/593-1262
From big screen TVs and unlimited sports, to soft leather recliners with built-in beer glass holders and a TV tray, this new spot has you in mind. With American gastro-pub fare and 80 beers on tap, you won't want to go home.
11680 Research, Ste. A + 512/343-2000
Craft cocktails mixed by renowned bartenders, accompanied by pub classics made inspirational with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients and expert chefs. Read our review.
207 E. 53rd + 512/614-6683
“Slow down and stay awhile” is the motto of this upscale diner. While a split-level bakeshop and beer garden may seem an unlikely pairing, the interplay among handcrafted breads, house-cured meats, and a lovingly curated beer menu is surprisingly successful. Read our review.
709 E. Sixth + 512/614-4972
Don’t be thrown by the approachable, informal atmosphere: The classically trained Chef Ned Elliott is putting out some seriously sophisticated food. The seasonal menu is limited, but that just means you get to eat your way through it faster. Read our review.
306 E. 53rd + 512/459-1010
East-siders come to play pool, or to flex their cerebral muscle with the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz on Wednesday nights. With a full menu of sandwiches and soup and an encyclopedic beer selection, it definitely feels more like a cozy pub than a destination bar. But people come out raving about the menu: Crisp salads, and a crazy sandwich selection. Power outlets in half of the booths, and an amazing range of beers keep the place busy until closing.
2316 Webberville Rd. + 512/610-2031
This Manor Road pub is geared toward sandwich-loving beer drinkers, and claims fame for fantastic poutine, a Canadian dish featuring french fries topped with cheese curds and drenched in gravy. Read our review.
2310 Manor Rd. + 512/243-6702
This popular near-campus watering hole features French comfort food that transcends the genre of bar fare. The frites are nearly perfect: not too thin or thick, with some skin, appropriately salted, and sprinkled with parsley. Read our review.
3110 Guadalupe + 512/537-0467
11500 Rock Rose Ave. + 512/350-3738
Refined comfort food. Extensive gluten-free options.
1310 RR 620 S + 512/263-3279
This restaurant features a wide range of local brews and Texas spirits, and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week.
500 E. Fourth + 512/682-2739
Wet your whistle with a beer-tasting tray before sampling roasted garlic bulbs with goat cheese and bacon-wrapped scallops or a salmon, duck, or tenderloin entrée. If you've missed Cask Night, you can still get beer to go.
10010 N. Capital of TX Hwy. + 512/467-6969
Chef Bryce Gilmore first made a splash with his Odd Duck Farm to Trailer before moving on to the nationally acclaimed Barley Swine. He revives Odd Duck with this brick-and-mortar starring seasonal, farm-fresh food prepared by a wood fired oven. Read our review.
1201 S. Lamar + 512/433-6521
