My mom and I had a terrible experience here. The service was awful. There were only two other parties at the place and our food took 40 minutes to come out. The waitress barely checked on us, leaving us without beverage for long periods of time. The pork sliders were soaked in sauce. Flavor overload. My mom only ate 1 of the three. It's really loud, even during the day. We couldn't talk because we couldn't hear each other. The food wasn't good, the service was terrible. I do not recommend this place.

I've been to tenOak a couple different times and never had a bad experience. Their food is pretty good for being a bar. I know one of my favorites is the pulled pork nachos. They have a pretty good selection of drinks. They even had a pickle martini. It's different and fun. Their are always people here but it's not over crowded.

The food here was a pleasant surprise! It was much better than typical bar food. Some of the dishes were a bit too far out of the mainstream for me, but two chicken dishes were excellent. The chicken with mashed potatoes was juicy and tasty. The chicken and waffles also compared very favorably, even to places which specialize in that dish. The service was very good too.

Very great bar in the warehouse district downtown. I had by far the best mojito of my life here and would suggest that anyone try it. The drinks can be a bit pricy but the quality of the drinks makes it worth it.

We had such a wonderful time here! We recently moved to the Austin area and don't know what places are good or bad on our way to 6th st. We passed many resuraunts and coffee shops and none of them looked ideal to us -until TenOak. What a great atmosphere! It really draws you in, even when we were across the street! Not too pricy and you certainly get bang for your buck! The food tasted fabulous! I had the roast chicken (comes on garlic mashed taters) but I switched the taters for spinach. Soo tasty! I don't know what they put on their mushrooms but it was so savory. -And the icing on the cake was certainly the waiter. Shea was simply wonderful! We are a talkative young couple and add a few drink into that mix and we couldn't shut up! Had such a nice conversation with the young gentleman about this, that, and the other. He was very attentive to our glasses when they needed to be filled and making sure everything tasted alright. He even went to the back to get me butter for my chicken! (I eat quite a bit of butter daily, and I'm 110lbs -go figure.) Simply put; we will DEFINITELY be back!

Good bar with lots of room. Good music at a level you can still talk to one another. Delicious chicken sandwich and a great whiskey selection.
