Hipsters on Holiday

The badass decor hardly makes up for the dismal service, but this is still a great outdoor place for drinks with friends or people watching.

Service was Great!

After reading the reviews about poor service, I was hesitant to eat at Spider House. However, I had a gift card, so I went with my hubby to try it out. Our server, Dustin, was fantastic! He was attentive, friendly and prompt. No problems there. The food was just okay. We went at 5:00 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon. I could see enjoying myself more over breakfast and coffee. The setting is pretty cool. I th... view more

Service bites

I have been a long time autinite and I take pride in the new a odd places to eat and drink,.I was a fan of spiderhouse when it first opened,.it was cool and chill,.the past few times I have been seriously disapointed in the down-hill slide of this once great establishment,..one really nice waitress had paid great care in our requests but the other bartenders and staff were very narcissitic and rude.

Spider House, Second Home

As ridiculous as it sounds, Spider House really has become a second home to me. I spend hours there nearly every day and I am on a first name basis with almost all of the employees. I love the atmosphere & the location. Spider House is decorated with eclectic antique finds and unique one of a kind pieces of furniture. I feel comfortable and welcome here! I typically order an iced Toddy Rico & the Garden B... view more

Amazing!

Never Have I ever been to a place that best embodies everything Austin. It has an amazing vibrant atmosphere, good drinks and walls covered in interesting stories and phrases. There is little if nothing not to love about Spiderhouse

Example: great place for good bread

While it definitely has the weirdo Austin-feel that people crave, plus some awesome people-watching, the service is TERRIBLE. Our waiter had to come back 3 times to make sure he got everyone's order correct. Our drinks were constantly empty and we could see him flirting with some girl by the register, instead of attending to his customers. We had to ask for the bill twice and he never brought it to us. We almost w... view more

The Worst Service I've Ever Had

This review has been a long time coming. I have tried to go to the Spider House many times, and each time I'm met with the worst cocktail service imaginable. As a former member of the service industry, I'm understanding, but these people have pushed my limits. \r \r On one particular evening the server took forever to come and greet us. Another server let us know who would be helping us and pointed him out. We saw ... view more

Great Drinks, Avoid Thursday Nights!

Great place to have a nice evening drinking coffee or tea! My boyfriend and I love this place--but Thursday nights are a nightmare. I have never had a problem with customer service or a rude waitstaff.

Ample people watching

I used to frequent Spiderhouse all the time, but not anymore because the service has really gone downhill. One time my boyfriend and I went there to get coffee. We waited around for about 15 minutes before he decided to just go in and get coffee from the bar. While he was gone, this really creepy waiter guy came up to me, got down on one knee and said ""Can I get you anything, angel?"" I didn't know how to react. I s... view more
