Good open Mic night on Sunday, great neighborhood vibe. Incredible beer selection and the staff is friendly and attentive...no employees on their phones around there. The spaghetti Bolognese is just s...uperb with tasty garlic bread, get an extra order of garlic bread and thank me later. Another great menu item is the chicken tortilla soup, I'm an cts snob of sorts and I have to say that this soup is one of the best I've had in central Texas, they didn't go overboard on the tomato base or salt!! I'll be back........ See More

This is such a great place for more than just the incredible choices in beer! First of all the people are wonderful! So is the food! But not to be slighted is their live music! ALL of this is what... makes B.B. Rover's a must visit when we are in Austin! See More

Wide variety of craft beer that changes often, good food, reasonable prices, and friendly staff. Been visiting Rover's on at least a weekly basis for almost a decade... and have no plans to change!

For where and as small as it is, they always have excellent beer selections at far more reasonable prices than most austin beer joints. Cant speak to the food but have been told it is also really good.

Realy good beer selecton at good prices. Food is mostly good to very good, with a few average options. My faves are the Reuben sandwich and Burgers. And always the beer!

Consistently waiting to order a beer for 30-45 min after your out. Really??? I'm not out when I order my next normally and I have to wait that long???? I normally don't leave bad reviews but thi...s is consistent over the last three years, at least 3-4 times a year and it's the same every time See More

We love our neighborhood pub, especially Sunday Open Mic night. Pizza, salads, sandwiches, beer...all good. Atmosphere...warm and local. BBs is our go-to place.

BB Rover's is always a fun hang. James and Eugene are the coolest. A great place if you're a fan of craft beers.

Peace & Keep Swinging,

Really enjoyed open mic night. Had a man there that was 90 years old and doing open mic. Had a notebook with 300 songs in it he played. Some his songs mostly cover songs.

Great old, style bar/pub. I had the Shepard's pie with Irish stew and both were excellent.
