Gilded Age Splendor - And Lighting

The Driskill Hotel is down the road from the Texas State House (supposedly because it housed a 19th. century Gentleman's Club patronized by cattle barons). The building was saved from destruction and lovingly restored to its Victorian splendor, which unfortunately, despite the modern lighting still is a little dim, almost by gaslight. It is a truly remarkable building just to wander around with a lot of atmosphere and romance. The bar upstairs and the 1806 cafe are both lovely to look at and spend some time in. The hotel is conveniently located if you are exploring Austin by foot or car. It's a short walk to all of the live music, clubs and restaurants you could possibly want to see. I would definitely stay there again if I return to Austin.

Operations may be disrupted due to COVID-19. Be sure to contact the restaurant to find out its current status and offerings.Driskill Grill Restaurant Review

The combination of romantic lighting, formal table settings, fresh flowers and professional service makes us feel like we've stepped back in time at this elegant restaurant. While the menu changes almost nightly, dishes have included pork belly with mezcal glaze, a 12-ounce Prime rib-eye, and salmon with spaghetti squash and serrano beurre blanc. (Cody Leonard is the current chef.) And there's...

With antique treasures, stunning rooms and soaring ceilings, this historic hotel is simply astonishing.

In Short
The Driskill Hotel was built in 1886 by cattle baron Col. Jesse Driskill. The downtown hotel has become something of a tradition for Texas governors; it has hosted several...

A classic hotel's restaurant offers a fresh take on classic cafe fare, while world-class desserts complete the experience.

In Short
Inside The Driskill's lobby is a more subtle cafe with 1920s hexagonal-tile floor. Sophisticated details include cherrywood accents, etched glass, art deco-style chandeliers,...

Creative New American fine-dining in a hotel that's a bastion of Old Texas.

In Short
Inside the multi-million-dollar renovated Driskill Hotel is a sedate, refined, dimly lit space. Presidents, writers, actors and other celebrated faces dine at these tables,...

Was looking for a nice breakfast that would cost quote what we spent in the Four Seasons yesterday and this came recommended online and by friends.

Wasn't disappointed at all. Lovely Eggs Benedict enjoyed by couple of the family, sausages and granola with a bowl...of fruit to compliment. Was disappointed when we went to the toilets to see a much larger nicer area in the lobby and outside...

Our family of four with young kids ate here each morning for brunch while staying at the hotel. The line moved reasonably quickly and the food preparation was also faster than anticipated. The food was amazing, especially the chicken & waffles and the Fresh Eddy...cocktail!
