    I can not say enough about our dinner here. Our server went above and beyond making our meal beyond enjoyable. My husband and I are visiting from NH and are blown away by how nice people are in Austin, and the Salty Sow is true to that. Our serve was informative, prompt, checked in the perfect amount and even offered some local suggestions for a drink after dinner.

    Food was amazing. Had the special, pork belly burnt ends which were smokey, deliciously fatty and so flavorful. I also highly suggest trying the curly tail cocktail. Amazing meal and service!

    Salty Sow used to be a favorite of mine, but when we went tonight it was very bland, salty or just mediocre. The ambiance and service was great, but the appearance of the food just didn’t make up for the taste. Probably won’t be back again.

    Excellent food that's out of the sameness mold. Prime rib and swordfish specials were delicious, as was the smoked pastrami salmon starter and the beet and goat cheese salad. Even their house Cabernet was a cut above and a great value.

    I went with my parent's for a Mother's day dinner and it was perfect! The food was creative and delicious. They also had a huge selection of cocktails that we had fun trying. Most of the restaurant is outside so dress appropriately for the weather to be comfortable! It was pretty hot when we went but they had a bunch of fans and shade so we were very cool outside. Great spot for a nice dinner without having to be too fancy or formal.

    Food was great and service good. Tried a bit of everything and liked the carnitas, pulled beef and the pate on the charcuterie plate. It was a bit too hot outside, maybe more fans would help but I should’ve requested an indoor table. I’ll definitely recommend this place and come back for the delicious food.

    The Salty Sow is a great place for celebration days - like Mother's Day, Birthdays or any day. Their happy hour in great with half price appetizers and drinks. It's where we often take out-of-town friends for an early evening get together. Love it!

    It was a bit warm inside the restaurant on Mother's Day, but not terrible. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Even though they were busy, the evening was pleasant. The Duck fries that everyone raves about were just okay to us. The brussel sprout appetizer was tasty, but probably wouldn't get it again. For entrees we had the beef shoulder and the bone in filets. Both dishes were delicious. My only complaint is that the filets had way too much salt on them for our taste. The side of cheese grits were just okay. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the evening. Of all the restaurants in Austin, this is probably on our list of solid restaurants, but not the wow factor we get from others in the Austin area.

    This was a fantastic meal. The only reason I didn't give all 5 stars was due to the staff being overly busy with the large crowd. (Concert weekend) We had to wait several times to be able to get the waiter.

    Waiter (and other staff members) were not very attentive and less than friendly (as were other staff members). Disliked the automatic 20% gratuity added to my bill regardless of service. Other than that, the food and drinks were good and appropriately priced.

    Selected this because it had an available reservation on a Saturday night. It was ok — overall, just ok. They ran out of the daily item I wanted after I ordered it so that was a bummer. The food was overall too salty. I get that’s in the name but not so much that you can’t truly taste the food. I didn’t think it was worth the price point and the volume was very loud from other tables. Certainly not an intimate setting. There are so many restaurants in town to try and I don’t think I will be back to this one.

    We booked a table for a special occasion at Salty Sow. Unfortunately, they had us sit outside on the patio at one of the high-top bench tables with the fans running in all directions. This wasn't the best seating for a large group of dressed up girls, who would be enjoying a 2 hour dinner to celebrate an engagement. I wouldn't recommend Salty Sow for a special occasion, as management wasn't accommodating to our large group and seemed annoyed when we asked to switch tables. Overall our server was so nice and the food was good.

    Our server was perfection - warm, knowledgeable, attentive and fun! The drinks were incredible- try the Curlytail - you won’t regret it. My husband had a classic gin martini and raved about it. So kudos to the bartenders. Our food was yummy - pork belly and slow-cooked beef. Lots of parking! Our only complaint was we sat inside and at times it was so loud it was impossible to hear each other. Outside seating looked divine!! We’ll be back for sure.

    We arrived an hour early before our reservation (because I’m stupid and made it for the wrong time) and host/ management team got us seated right away. There were 5 of us from ages 4 - 72 so they saved my day for sure. We had tix to see The Lion King at Bass and the whole team made sure we were well taken care of and fed with time to spare. Thanks!
