After shuttering last winter, Opal Divine’s is back in South Austin, this time within the Best Western hotel right before East Oltorf along I-35’s frontage road. Known as Opal Divine’s Austin Grill, the menu remains the same, with a mix of burgers, Southwestern entrees, brunch, cocktails, and beer.

The new Opal Divine’s Austin Grill replaced the hotel's original restaurant, Blue Moon Bar & Grill, which seemed to shutter sometime in the spring. It officially opened in early June.

Opal Divine's shuttered the Penn Field location on South Congress because of "high rent and expense load." The only other Opal's in Austin is the Marina one, found over on MoPac beyond West Parmer Lane. The very first Opal’s opened on West 6th Street in 2000, but it shuttered and made way for Steampunk Saloon.
