My wife and I went for the first time at the Spring location the day before New Years Eve. Made a reservation as Republic Grille's website dictates. Met and seated in a booth on the end for a 1:15 reservation time. Waiter was good, food was excellent and everything was fine until near the end of our meal. Suddenly five people were seated in the booth next to us three of the people were right behind me not 2 feet away. As we quickly finished all booths were full with people not being socially distance. On OpenTable's website the description for Republic Grille described Social Distancing as this:
Limited number of seated diners
Distancing maintained in common areas
Extra space between tables
Obviously this did not occur, but we just left without creating a scene. My wife left an inbox on their Facebook page and have yet to hear anything or an explanation. First restaurant we have eaten indoors at and not what we expected based on the protocall that was presented on OpenTable. First and last based on their behavior/neglect.

We usually visit the Panther Creek location and this one offers the same great level of food and hospitality.
The atmosphere and decor is similar to all three locations.
Tables were well space for COVID-19 precautions.

Love Republic Grill's menu choices. Food is great and ladies room is awesome! Downfall--I made reservations and wanted to wait for our friends to show before being seated. The hostess was insisting we be seated immediately so we wouldn't lose the table. I was two minutes early for the reservation and reminded her the policy stated 15 minutes to show. She tried again, but I insisted it was not polite t be seated without the whole party present. Our friends arrived one minute after reservation time--she hadn't even put our menus down yet. Overall, I have been here before and will continue to return.

My boyfriend and I went on Tuesday night and we'd never been here, before, but will go back time and time again! The atmosphere was great, very pretty and clean. Our waiter, Kewei, was stellar. He went above and beyond with his great personality, attentiveness, recommendations on certain dishes and drinks. I've never had service this great! The food was to die for! We ordered the Lobster Cakes for an appetizer, Prime Rib with sweet potato cakes and mashed potatoes for the two side and the flavors of each were amazing and well-worth the price. I ordered the chicken fried steak, jalapeño Mac and cheese and green beans for my two sides. The chicken fried steak was wonderful quality and just the perfect size, not too much, not too small. All of the large chain steakhouse-like restaurants, like Saltgrass, Chili's, Cracker Barrel, Cheddar's, Applebees etc. don't hold a candle to this place. After checking this place out, you''ll never want to eat at those other places ever again because The Republic Grille is unmatched in quality and service!

It was ok. Nothing special. Felt like the food was a bit overpriced. Steak/flounder didn’t much of a flavor too it. If it was 5-6 dollars cheaper then it would be on point. I would go back again though service great but our waitress didn’t really give us a chance to breath she was checking on us every minute it felt like. But better than not getting service though. I would recommend to others but not strongly. Hopefully it was an off day will go back again to see if the food will have a better taste it it.
