I was invited to Austin to attend a business conference and one of the restaurants we were taken to for dinner was the Three Forks.

Had a great dinner here with friends from around the world - lots of steak/meat options - their specialty. Several shared dishes due to large cuts of some dishes. Expensive.

I had a business dinner here, and everything was wonderful. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about the menu. We also had a few in our party with food allergies that were readily accommodated. The steak was delicious. The sides are shareable, and I highly recommend the spinach!

Perfectly cooked food and attentive waiters made our dining experience very pleasant. The room lacked windows but made up for it by showcasing celebrities from Texas.

Tremendous steaks! Seating available in quieter rooms or around bar and sports on TV. Service was superb. We parked once, had dinner then walked to concert at Austin City Limits. Perfect.

We have eaten here 3 times. 2011 and twice this year (2016). Outstanding food, outstanding service. Our last occasion was our 51st anniversary celebration, Nov. 17, 2016. Kelsey was our server on the last two occasions. She is fantastic! Her knowledge of the food, her personal and caring approach, her enthusiasm, her helpfulness, her personality-- yes, I could go on... More
