Restaurant Description

Located within the historic Goodall Wooten House, Judges' Hill Restaurant & Bar features a unique setting of relaxed sophistication. Fully restored and re-opened in 2003, this downtown Austin restaurant is a local treasure that patrons say is one of the capital city's best kept secrets.

During the last six years, Judges' Hill has gone from fine dining to wine bar to a fresh approach that showcases the best of both. Chef Rob Snow's innovative American cuisine is the perfect blend of bar food and fine dining fare. Our seasonally driven menu reflects his philosophy with traditional ingredients and bold flavors. Savory favorites such as the Braised Short Ribs will excite your taste buds.

An array of seating options is available including indoor seating in the exquisite dining room and cozy lounge as well as outdoor seating on the covered veranda. Each space offers a unique dining experience and makes Judges' Hill Restaurant & Bar the ideal destination for a romantic dinner, family gathering or group celebration.

 bad Mexican Food...really bad mexican food. Don't do it. These people don't have a clue and it shows. If you want Taco-bell like menu offerings except worse quality, it's the place for you. Even Taco Cabana has better Margaritas. What's up with that?
