Success! Thanks for posting your review of Kerbey Lane Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

beware food poisoning

There was a long wait to get in, after seeing our waitress, take three trips and 15 minutes to get the original drink order correct, somehow she couldn't quite get the coffee to the actual cup, wierd, she kept saying oh I forgot the coffee again, I understood that it was the glacial pace of service and not an overwhelming volumn of people that was the root cause of the long wait. We waited 50 minutes for our food to ... view more

Cold Food, Bad Service

I had heard Kerbey's had really good pancakes, so I went. It was busy, which I thought was a good sign. We waited 50 minutes to be seated, then waited 45 minutes for our food. Our food was cold, and look old like it had been sitting on the counter for a long time. We talked to the manager, who apologized but said they were busy. As if being busy was a good excuse to serve cold food. We allowed him to remake our... view more

All Reputation, no reward

My girlfriend and I moved to Austin six months prior to our finally trying out Kerbey Lane. Many friends and acquaintances had recommended we try it out now that we live in Austin. The reputation goes way past the experience in my opinion. We decided to try it on a whim after a long road trip home. We were exhausted, so thought it was best to take our food to-go. We placed our order at 7:19 PM. We received the ... view more

Worst Service in Austin

My girlfriend and I have eaten at the Kerby Lane on South Lamar (both picked up and dined in) around 5 times now. I personally don't even like the food there, but my girlfriend does, so I'm forced to go along. Both times we have eaten at the restaurant the wait has been over an hour and a half long and on both occasions we were passed over by others that had shown up after us. On the first occasion the waitress go... view more

Awesome Place...

The Raspberry Pancakes (only available on some days) are the best pancakes in the entire world. This is a verified true fact. The only thing better than these pancakes is the joyful laughter of small children and world peace.

The essence of Austin

Whenever I visit Austin, I make sure to stop by Kerby Lane to eat. I enjoy the food. The proportions are great considering the low cost and I really enjoy the menu selections. My favorite right now is the Paris Texas Platter. As for the atmosphere, it is kick-back, mom and pop style with hippies or rock star-influenced looking servers. To me it is the essence of Austin. Yeah, sometimes the service is not speedy fas... view more

consistently getting worse

we used to love this place, but it is consistently going down hill. i really want to keep liking it - but i doubt that i'll go back. last time i was there i ordered the portobello sandwich - i wish i could draw the picture of mushroom to bread ratio! only half of my sandwich had less than half of a mushroom (not exaggerating!) and about that much pesto. it was missing the cheese and tomato. when i asked the waitress ... view more

so-so service but good food

I love Kerbey Lane, don't get me wrong... I just prefer the location of Research Blvd, which is weird because I totally dig South Austin. Everytime I've gone to the Kerbey Lane South - the service has been a little lacking. The food is always delicious and a great variety of food to choose from. They are famous for their delicious Gingerbread pancakes (which are awesome)! It is a small restaurant with not a lot s... view more

I recently dined at Kerbey lane the food was good and the waitress was nice and attentive but on the way out I saw an old friend while I stopped to say hi for about 2 minutes the hostess shoved me with her elbows as she passed through and screamed out ""jesus christ!"" because we seemed to be in her way. I understand that we were in her way but she is representing Kerbey lane as a hostess she should have a better att... view more

Excellent food, good service

I don't quite understand all the scathing reviews of this place because of service. The quality of service I received was fine. Not legendary, but not terrible as other reviews seem to have experienced.\r \r I had tofu fries appetizer (fried bean curd in the shape of french fries). Probably good with a peanut sauce, but nothing more than a novel way to eat some tofu. The entree was Feta Chicken, a beautifully p... view more
