Restaurant Wednesday: Rivals Steakhouse by Raechel Kelley

Born out of a friendly rivalry between two little league dads,  Rivals Steakhouse, redefines the traditional steakhouse in a way that appeals to any crowd. “We’re a lot of things to a lot of people, while still staying true to the core,” says co-founder Bryan Soltis. “We are an outstanding steakhouse with quality food and some really unique menu items.”

Whether you’re a sports fan, a happy hour junkie, a bottomless brunch lover or an avid steak eater, Rivals will satisfy any craving for any occasion.

As one of the few restaurants serving Premium Gold Angus Beef, Rivals is well suited for special events or a casual night on the town. Their 15 televisions ranging from 46 to 80 inches also make Rivals a prime location to catch the game or a great place to saddle up with an ice cold brewsky.

Not a beer fan? Well never fear, Rivals' specialty drink menu features old fashioned favorites with a modern twist. From their whiskey sours, handmade with real egg whites for a rich smooth finish, to their green tea gimlets, topped with fresh mint leaves, Rivals' drink menu is sure please any palate.

Looking for a quite place to enjoy your steak? Check out the lower dining loft for a more intimate experience. Rivals' 12,000 square feet also allows them to cater special parties in the front banquet room, fully equipped with a private bar and a street side view.

And let’s not forget about their soon-to-be famous Sunday brunch, which offers $7 bottomless mimosas and bloody marys, and a gourmet buffet with anything from French toast to prime rib to fried green tomatoes topped with a creamy bacon aioli.

Not only do they offer premium beef, classic drinks and an inviting atmosphere, Rivals invests in their community by serving Texas grown produce, displaying Austin made art and featuring decadent desserts made by Bakerman’s bakery.

So if you’re looking for a sophisticated steakhouse, a happy hour hotspot or just a place to grab a good slab of beef, head down to Rivals, the steakhouse that even a vegetarian could love.
