We usually enjoy the South Lamar location in Austin, but went to the north San Antonio location on Hwy. 281, a new theater. Food is great in both places; so is the service.
Some in the audience were new to the concept in the San Antonio and were pretty talkative, but fortunately, when the movie started they quieted down. I heard a little background noise from an adjacent film in the San Antonio theater (never heard that at South Lamar) but my wife liked the new theater.
They should dim the menu lights however when the movie starts, or at all times in San Antonio, otherwise, you're looking over a light.
The concept is great and we don't go to a movie unless we go to an Alamo Drafthouse without the talking and phones, and with good food and drinks.

Alamo is not only famous for their dinner/movie brilliance. Their eclectic ideas for TV or general genre events are a phenomenon! Ever attended a musical or music video sing-a-long or a 12-hour multi-feature extravaganza or a season premiere of your favorite TV show complete with a visit from some celebrities?
If you live in Austin or nearby you must pick up their newsletter or subscribe to the list serve to be on top of all these mind-blowing activities.
The heart and spirit of the Drafthouse encapsulates all that is good about Austin, Texas. You'll never want to see a movie anywhere else.

The Alamo Drafthouse is awesome! I can't recommend this place enough, it's a must if you're in Austin and looking for something to do. All the locations are great for catching a movie and having a good time, but the Drafthouse Downtown does special shows too. My favorites are Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Animation Festival, and the Foleyvision events. They offer so many different things, there has to be something for everyone on their schedule.

As far as food, their meals are pretty pricey. I usually eat beforehand, then just get an Italian soda and dessert. The best is the Molten Chocolate Cake a la Mode!

This is the best idea ever! Why hasn't this place been around forever! Dinner, movie, and drinks! Awesome! It's a can't miss. Hubby and I are able to go out on a "date" sometimes...but we don't always have a lot of time, so the Alamo Drafthouse is perfect for us. The food isn't bad, the drinks are better! And something else I appreciate, we have even been able to take the kids to certain kid friendly shows. Granted, the theatre can be very crowded with a lot of kids, but the kids enjoy the show and Mom & Dad still get a drink! Oh, and Tuesdays used to be Bring your baby day to the Lake Creek location. I'm not sure if they still do that....you'd think with a one year old I'd check into that!

PROS: FUN!
CONS:

Comfortable seats, reasonably priced food, workable ordering system. Shows a broad variety of movies. Good for a date, a group outing, or alone. Probably one of my favorite theaters.

PROS: The movie/dinner combo is a great one!
CONS: Food service is slow.

Where else can you eat good food or drink a great variety of beer while watching a movie?

Although they don't always have all the newest films, they have somewhat intelligent managers who seem to always get good films.

Austin has 4-5 locations, but the most popular is probably the downtown Drafthouse, which offers live shows (check out Mr. Sinus) and special dinner events with some movie showings.

To top it off, ticket prices are right in line with most other chain cinemas, and beer and food prices are about what you'd expect to pay at a regular, sit-down restaurant.

Alamo Draft House is a wonderful place to go for a night out. You can watch a movie and eat a meal and have drinks all at the same time. The movie seats are comfortable and the choices of food make my mouth water just thinking about it. They serves a good variety of appetizers and drinks as well. The staff is curtious and the choice of movies are appealing. They often offer them nights where they offer a movie and specials to go with the movie.

Alamo Drafthouse is a great place to "experience" the movies. It's not your average movie theater where you go and watch a movie. You go to the Alamo to be part of the movie....yell at the movie, drink beer with the movie, and sometimes get up and DANCE with the movie!

This place is part of what makes Austin unique. A great selection of movie-thons that you will NEVER find anywhere else, and dinner to boot! There's live entertainment sometimes, wacky contests, rare movie footage, etc... You have to experience it!

This movie theatre is a great concept and a definitely makes for wonderful evening out. You can eat, drink a beer and watch a movie all at the same time. It's perfect for those nights you can't find enough time to dine at a restaurant and make a movie.

This theatre offers dining while watching a movie. You can even order some beer while you sit back and enjoy the flick. My favorite thing about Alamo Drafthouse is Baby Day. Baby Day is on Tuesdays. You may bring you baby with you to the first showing of a movie. I took my little guy to many movies there so that I could get out of the house.

PROS: Baby Day
CONS:
