From the top porch, which is about 2 stories over the lower level, the spectacular view is to the west over Barton Creek Greenbelt. The sunset is nice! Great variety of beers & ritas with many happy hour drink specials. The food portions are very generous; everything tasted good. We stayed for quite a while, and as the tables filled,... More

We gathered here after an afternoon of golf. Drinks and appetizers were great and the view of the Greenbelt was spectacular

This 2-story casual restaurant feels like a treehouse with a great view of the Austin countryside. Be sure to try the shrimp and craft beers ... the good food will surprise you. And dogs are welcome in the spacious patios on the first level. All your cares float away into the Hill Country sunset at Happy Hour.

Great food and awesome views! We sat on the roof top bar area and the views of the green belt and river were awesome. It was almost like you were in California or something with that view. Great place to check out!

We want here on a Saturday when they have brunch. Our server didn't mention any of the specials though we overheard another server for another table. We had a strawberry mint spritz and Bloody Mary--neither were very good. The spritzer was mainly soda and the Bloody Mary was mainly Tabasco. My husband has the brisket has which he said was...

Four of us ate lunch here on a Friday afternoon. We ate outside upstairs. The view was okay, but it was windy & chilly. Our table was in the middle of the room, so it was hard to enjoy the view without looking like we were staring at the people sitting around the edges. My husband had the red beans... More

We stopped by Red's Porch for a Friday evening happy hour. The air was cold (12/31/16), but the porch was covered in the plastic curtains and the heaters were on. We had two Cajun themed appetizers and found them very tasty and authentically Cajun. Being from Louisiana, I'm usually critical of Cajun food cooked this far into Texas, but couldn't... More

After eating several days of BBQ and fried foods we were looking for a place for lunch that would be lighter. We stumbled into this place and were drawn to the upstair Porch for sitting. We could also have eaten on a lower patio or in the downstairs air-conditioned restaurant. It had a nice view of the heavily treed area... More

We visited on a Saturday. The waitstaff were very good. Our food arrived in a timely manner. The food was rather disappointing. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't good either. But for disappointing food I could have stayed home. When I eat at a restaurant I want to think my food was prepared by a professional. Sadly, I left without... More

It has a great location overlooking the greenbelt, but it was not that inspiring. We were going to have dinner and drinks, but decided on just an appetizer and drink before heading to another place. The wings were just OK, but the beers were good.
