Sawyer & Co. is one of the few “new” diners able to capture that old times feel. Everything is retro—from the building’s facade to the formica tables. The menu boasts a decidedly Louisiana feel to it, with items like muffalettas, grilled oysters and boudin balls offered alongside classic dishes like sticky buns and scrambles. Cocktails, craft beer and wine are also on offer—enjoy them during killer happy hour on the patio.

Go to Sawyer & Co for the friendliest staff in all of Austin! And stay for cocktails and cajun dishes that do not disappoint. This retro diner decor is perfect too.
Having been let down by another restaurant nearby - poor service and totally unaccommodating of our lovely group of 8 - we ventured down the road to Sawyer & Co. The perfect choice! Incredibly friendly and attentive wait staff who stayed open late for us. Definitely order the El Diablo cocktail and I hear the Old Fashioneds were pretty darn good too! I had the tuna salad and it was delicious, and the rest of the group were happy with their choices of chicken fried steak and the more traditional Southern dishes. The decor is also everything you'd want from a Texan diner - would definitely recommend you check it out!
Checked out Sawyer & Co while in town for SXSW based on a recommendation from a local. They NAILED IT! The restaurant and venue are so unique, and to top it off, they make some killer cocktails and Cajun Style Cuisine. The feel is sort of a 50's retro diner with a space aged feel ala The Jetsons. I knocked back an Old Fashioned or two throughout the meal which were expertly mixed. The apps and mains are traditional cajun items but with a bit of a twist. Loved the fried okra side to get things started. For my main I had the Grits and Grillades which were legit awesome. The chicken fried steak was also incredible. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Austin.
