At first glance at ads you might think this is a high end kind of evening dining. It is not. They have four TVs going at the bar with football and News on. The music sound system speakers are not good and at times the music sounds like boom box white noise. There was a table that went uncleaned for the first 30 mins that we were there as three waiters stood around a pulpit and chit chatted. I got the quinoa and it was old and tasted like cardboard box. The pistachios on top were rancid. My husband ordered a hamburger which in reality was the size of a slider at $13. On an early Saturday evening, 6:30, they were already out of the top desert, chocolate mocha brûlée. That doesn't seem like good planning. The bar was large though and maybe evening drinks are okay here.

After exploring in the woods and getting a cranky craving for steak, I called the hotel and asked for a recommendation for a great steak place in downtown Bastrop. Their response was the 602, yet the address is 919 (a bit confusing when from out of town and unknowing the zip code, or parking). As it turned out passing it was a blessing, we went around the block to get back to it and found great free parking. Right near the back entrance, followed our noses! The back porch was very relaxing, inviting, shaded with fans. We popped in to use the clean restroom, wash hands and whatnot. Indoors reminded me of the old romantic pub places without blaring tvs, we decided to sit outside. Even though we were the only ones out there at the time, and we were busy rehydratingmy drink remained above the halfway mark. Our bartender and waiter had great suggestions when my brain was just silently screaming steak! We got the salad bar right off (with no extra charge for my pre-schooler picking off my plate, much appreciated!!!). Everything was perfectly seasoned and cooked! The melding of flavors and textures was just what we needed to replenish. Plenty to share with my lil one, the porch was also fenced nicely so he could run around a bit when he powered up from the protein. The desserts were amazing too! Noticed the food sources on menu were local and clean too, which justifies the price for me, that and we felt great the rest of the day despite the adventuring we did earlier (a hollow drive through would have left us depleted). Anyway thanks for reading my short book on here. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Will post more pics next time we pass through town for our lunch punches <3

It’s our second time to come to this place. We really like their steak the first time and so for our anniversary we did not have a second thought. It’s still early in or rather late in the afternoon and the place was still quiet, with few patrons enjoying their meal. We seated ourselves on the inside dining area, away from the bar, and we had the area for ourselves. It felt so intimate, with our server named Al. She was so nice and attentive to us. Their Tito vodka martini was the best ( according to my husband), and their monitors was minty delicious. We had their Caprese salad was good. And for our main dish we had the rib eye steak with Brussels sprouts and buttery mashed potatoes. Every thing was just perfect!!!

We met friends and family to start off the weekend with Happy Hour at the 602. What a great selection of craft beers and signature drinks, and the friendly service from all the bartenders. The service at dinner time was excellent and the menu supports their Farm to Fork effort to buy from local farmers and producers. Next stop was the outdoor patio to listen to live music from local and Texas bands. Again, the service at the bar, in the dining room and the outdoor patio was excellent. We will definitely be back to the 602.
