The badass decor hardly makes up for the dismal service, but this is still a great outdoor place for drinks with friends or people watching.

After reading the reviews about poor service, I was hesitant to eat at Spider House. However, I had a gift card, so I went with my hubby to try it out.

Our server, Dustin, was fantastic! He was attentive, friendly and prompt. No

As ridiculous as it sounds, Spider House really has become a second home to me. I spend hours there nearly every day and I am on a first name basis with almost all of the employees.

I love the atmosphere & the location. Spider House

Pros: Beautiful landscape, friendly staff, great drinks

Cons: Pricey

Never Have I ever been to a place that best embodies everything Austin. It has an amazing vibrant atmosphere, good drinks and walls covered in interesting stories and phrases. There is little if nothing not to love about Spiderhouse

While it definitely has the weirdo Austin-feel that people crave, plus some awesome people-watching, the service is TERRIBLE.

Our waiter had to come back 3 times to make sure he got everyone's order correct. Our drinks were constantly

This review has been a long time coming. I have tried to go to the Spider House many times, and each time I'm met with the worst cocktail service imaginable. As a former member of the service industry, I'm understanding, but these people

Pros: patio

Cons: waitstaff that acts like you owe them something

Great place to have a nice evening drinking coffee or tea! My boyfriend and I love this place--but Thursday nights are a nightmare. I have never had a problem with customer service or a rude waitstaff.

I used to frequent Spiderhouse all the time, but not anymore because the service has really gone downhill. One time my boyfriend and I went there to get coffee. We waited around for about 15 minutes before he decided to just go in and get

Pros: close to campus, good food and drink

Cons: hipster staff

I just got back into town from living overseas and wanted to experience a table service cafe again. Its something that's a bit of a rarity Austin even though you tip a barista more per price of a simple coffee then a waiter or waitress

I used to have to meet here with a school group I was in. It's dark and loud, and the coffee does not taste that great. My friend ordered a drink and the soy milk had gone bad - it was lumpy. I admire the "austinness" of this place but it

Pros: good place to meet people, fun hangout

Cons: service and food are not that great

I dropped in to the Spider House for a quick cuppa before meeting friends for dinner. I sat at the bar, but the bartender ignored me until I got up and moved to across from where he was standing. The coffee--not as good as DoJoe or even

Pros: Decent food at a low price

Cons: Horrible, horrible service

.

The atmosphere is good but the service needs a little help. I love their coffee and desserts, but the staff needs a little customer service training. You should give them a try because they are an Austin favorite.

Absolutely LOVE this place. Great drinks, good food, and a great place to hang with friends or even by yourself. Feels like sitting on the back porch of a friends house. Great service! I never want to leave there, wish I lived next door.

This is a great little Austin-y place. If you live here you have to try it at least once. When I went I had a great time because of the atmosphere and the atmosphere alone.\r

However, the food was mediocre and the service left a lot to

Spider House is a great place to hang out, with good coffee and a unique atmosphere. I've found it a little too busy for trying to study, but it's perfect for sitting and chatting with friends. It can be hard to find parking, especially at night.

Very COOL looking place. Great Iced Chai--not too much spice. Lots of interesting folks if you're into People-Watching. Hard to find a seat though--I usually just grab my drink and go!

Spiderhouse is by far my favorite cafe to have a good relaxing time with friends, or just by myself to study, read, or in general have a good time in this comforting atmosphere. This is a great place in downtown Austin, and I enjoy going

Spider House is one of those places that always comes to mind when trying to decide where to go for a nice time. Evolving from a fruity little coffee house to one of the city's most happening spots, Spider House has the eclectic charm

Have any of you been to the Spider House lately? THEY HAVE A FULL BAR!!! YEAH!!! They added liquor and they added some of the coolest drinks in Austin. I love it. The food is great (if you like vegetarian) and the ambiance is unique.

Spider House is located near campus right off the drag. They are what I call a hidden gem. The house itself has several rooms with cozy couches and sitting areas for visiting. The outside has a covered deck and then several seperated garden type areas for relaxing and enjoying you time. The place has a cozy eclectic feel with a very nice ambiance about it. On the weekends they often have live music outdoors and a seperate outdoor section that shows unique movies. The staff is very friendly and the choice of food and drinks is great!!! They also have some games inside that are free for customers to use during their visit. They offer more than just coffee and tea drinks. They have beers, wines, sodas, desserts, and simple healthy meals. I recommend everyone try this experience a least once.

Spider House is one of my favorite coffee shops to visit. They have a really nice, huge patio, with bright colored lights strung everywhere. At night, there's an outdoor bar, where you can order beer and sit around and chat. Sometimes they have live music, and their coffee drinks and baked goods are absolutely excellent.

The coffee is average but the real star is the atmosphere. Relax in the courtyard with a board game and some friends. At night, the place looks fantastic with all its lights strung about in the trees. Usually pretty busy, but it's not that hard to find a seat.

Spider house caters to a cross between university crowd and neighborhood crowd. Situated comfortably off the main drag in a quaint neighborhood, it's a great place to spend a beautiful spring or fall day (they have wonderful, kitschy outdoor seating). Their coffee isn't the best, the prices are the best, but the draw is their atmosphere-- part garage sale, part alice in wonderland. The food isn't half bad either, actually and it's a good value. Try red beans and rice.
