Getting the Best Bang for Your Buck at Jeffrey's

Jeffrey's of Austin is an institution in this town, and a visit to this restaurant always feels like a treat. But it can also feel like a major hit on your wallet. The secret we're happy to share is that Jeffrey's is actually really affordable during Happy Hour!

Their Happy Hour details are as follows:
4:30–6:30pm Tuesday – Saturday
All night on Sunday & Monday

The Happy Hour menu features half price bar food (a large selection!) and $2 off each cocktail, beer, and glass of wine. It can be a little difficult to score a table in the bar during Happy Hour, so for your best bet, get there right as soon as you can.

The Bar Fare menu featured during Happy Hour leaves little to be desired- there are so many options, and most of them are great for sharing. On our most recent visit, we started off with the Jeffrey's housemade pear soda- a delightful mocktail-style drink for this pregnant writer. The Crab and Avocado King Toast rang in at $4 (usually $8), and we were happy with the generous amount of high quality crab piled on this delicious bread. The Truffled Deviled Eggs ($3 instead of $6) aren't for the faint of heart- it packs a serious punch of mustardy and truffley goodness! We loved the Escargot & Garlic Toasts ($3 instead of $6) because it's not something you'd probably find yourself making at home, and the flavors were amazing. I wish we would've doubled up on this order. By the time ordered our largest dish, the Pan Seared Bar Steak, the sun had set and the lights had been dimmed- so please excuse the dark photo below! It certainly doesn't do justice to this incredibly buttery, perfect steak served atop mashed potatoes (pommes puree), and a watercress and tomato salad. It's a steal at $14, usually $28. 

We saw other diners order the burger, Linguine & Littleneck Clams, and the Warm Spinach, Dandelion & Arugula Salad - they all looked amazing and we look forward to checking out the rest of the menu at our next Happy Hour visit!
