Visited this spot on a Sunday night - such a great date spot. It's cozy and there is cute pig art everywhere! Our waiter was pretty attentive. I tried the Curly Tail cocktail and it's delicious. It's a little spicy so don't try it unless you're into that kind of thing. We tried the meat and cheese plate and were pretty impressed with the spread - two different types of cheeses, 2 different types of meat, pickled veggies, sweet almonds, liver mousse and some crusty bread. Must try! Can't wait to visit again.

This has to be on the list of best places to eat in Austin for any resident. The food here is elegant, flavorful, and savory. Not only is this a great place to take a date or stage a celebratory meal, but their full ranging cocktail and appetizer options are perfect for any happy hour. If you leave here without a fully satisfied tummy (emphasize on the full), you didn't order correctly. But that's alright, you can always make it up the next time you go.

Absolutely phenomenal. Excellent gastropub. They had great Brussels sprouts, salmon, amazing truffled devil eggs, and great pork belly. Fresh taste, unique methods, overall great food.

Amazing place. From the beet salad and incredible fries to the candied beef and braised pork, you can't find a place much better than this! Also, the creme brûlée and beignets are amazing.

My main reason for giving 3 stars instead of 4 was the lack of quick service. The food was pretty good and very "gastropubby", so mainly you'll find food that seems fancy, but really isn't and is priced accordingly as if it were. I would need to go back to see if I think it's worthy of more stars, but there are so many food options available that I need to try, it won't be anytime soon. Try and see what you think!

We finished up a recent day trip to Austin from San Antonio, and we chose this place to see more of the elevated cuisine Austin has to offer. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. We began with the chef's special soup of the day, a zucchini Parmesan soup with basil pistou and burrata in a base of tomato. It's to be featured in their upcoming event with the James Beard House in NY. I can see why. It's definitely one of the top 5 soups I've ever tasted (the top 3 being gumbos from particular restaurants in New Orleans and one in San Antonio). The depth of the tomato, the chunky zucchini, the creamy burrata, and the basil pistou combine for deliciously intense flavors. We also ordered the crispy chicken thighs with smashed and fried potatoes and a neckbone gravy underneath. Well, I sopped up a lot of that gravy with the potatoes, and every bite was delicious. However, the chicken thighs were the real star. The skin was incredibly crispy and delicious and the meat itself was juicy and nearly uniform with no part being overly thicker than the rest. It's rare to have chicken this good. I think of a few other examples such as fried chicken at a soul food restaurant I use to love, a delicious Italian roasted chicken, or chicken pontalba from New Orleans cuisine. It's a great dish. We also ordered the slow-cooked beef shoulder. Now, aside from the veggies and potatoes along with the delicious brown gravy, there's a fried egg on top covering that beautiful ultra-tender meat. And that meat is infused with flavor. It's uncommon to taste beef with this depth of flavor and that delicious. I'm just glad to know of a restaurant that can pull these flavor profiles off. We wanted to eat some dessert, but alas, we were way too full. In short, Salty Sow is elevated American cuisine with a sustainable and local twist. Further, it pulled off some of the tastiest dishes I've tried with an exceptional crispy chicken thigh and deeply flavorful slow-cooked beef shoulder.

It's 5pm on a weekday and you're wondering where to go for happy hour? Girl please, stop wondering and just head over to Salty Sow. Who doesn't rave about their happy hour? Great drinks and great eats for a decent price! Sip on a Little Larry (yes you want that Grand Marnier) while you indulge in pork belly tacos accompanied by eggplant fries and crispy brussell sprouts - they're veggies, so they're healthy right? And I know this isn't on the HH menu, but ALWAYS leave room for Banana's Foster beignets. You can thank me later.
