"We eat here pretty often & it's our favorite place to take guests. Usually we go for breakfast and get the classic breakfast tacos (BEST in town), the pancakes, the hill country breakfast or biscuits and gravy. We also usually get an extra side of hash browns (again the BEST). We think the food is delicious! Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in town and we LOVE to eat!"

""I eat here all the time and I've NEVER had a bad dish! From the breakfast to the burgers to the tacos and dessert it's ALL so delicious! I can't get enough! The service is great too! The staff is always so friendly and is sure to say hello to every guest. They've never gotten a meal wrong or made it incorrectly. I'm never disappointed and will always be a faithful customer!""

"OMG, I generally don't review places but this deserves it. I had the Chicken fried Steak breakfast and it was amazing. The batter is light and crispy( gravy served on side) and has an amazing flavor. My wife described the biscuits as the best she has ever had. Hashbrowns were crispy yet not burnt. I will be recommending this place to everybody I know. Last was the waitress. She had 7 or 8 tables and was in constant motion. My coffee cup never even hit the halfway point before she was back with a refill making sure everybody was taken care of."

Hill Country Spirit

The first Waterloo Ice House opened its doors on Congress Avenue in 1976. It was a casual neighborhood gathering spot serving hot, handmade meals & ice cold beer for an eclectic mix of Austin business people, students, artists & musicians. Not much has changed since our opening over 40 years ago. Waterloo Ice House still embodies that Hill Country spirit of gathering with friends & family for a cold beer & spending time together eating, laughing, & talking.
