Going out with a party of more than ten people can definitely pose logistical challenges, especially in Austin. Birthdays and celebrations can get bogged down by logistical concerns like space for a large table or accommodating everyone’s dietary needs, and some restaurants just get overwhelmed by large parties. Eater gathered the best Austin restaurants and bars that can handle large groups with ease.
Indoor spaces are clearly a limiting factor in group dining, so many of these places, like The Little Darlin’ and Contigo, have ample outdoor space. For casual drinking and snacks, Batch and Easy Tiger make for a good night. For a full dinner with no hassles, groups that aren’t afraid to share should check out Kemuri Tatsu-ya. If there is a hair-splitter in the party, the set price of unlimited small plates at Cafe Josie makes the bill easy. This update adds Quality Seafood, Charm Korean BBQ, Better Half, and Fareground.
For a truly special occasion, check out Eater’s list of private dining rooms. To accommodate furry friends, there are dog-friendly restaurants. Groups of ladies may want to see Eater’s spots for a girls night out. Then there are always family-style-friendly establishments.
As always, if a favorite go-to restaurant or bar for large groups is missing below, let Eater know through the tipline or comment below.
