About Parkside

Parkside opened on Austin’s historic 6th Street in 2008 as Chef Shawn Cirkiel’s flagship restaurant and was one of the first to introduce the “farm-to-table” concept long before it became commonplace in town. As the city’s first gastropub, Parkside became a significant influence in Austin’s growing culinary landscape and set the standard for local, sustainable dining.


Parkside’s seasonally changing menu offers classic American fare, elevated with the highest quality, locally sourced, and sustainably grown products. Parkside is also known for its extensive raw bar and superior selection of oysters from all over the Northeast Coast. Combined with craft cocktails, a thoughtfully curated wine list, and a bar that emphasizes Texas and agave spirits, Parkside continues to be a dining destination for locals and tourists alike.


With a recent full renovation that includes a first floor private dining room and a fully-privatized second floor event space that boasts its own bar and patio which overlooks Austin’s famous 6th street – Parkside’s ingredient-driven menu, convivial setting, and consistent service have made the restaurant a 6th Street landmark and one of downtown’s most sought-after event spaces. Whether you’re looking for the best burger in town, a perfectly made martini, delicious fresh oysters, or the perfect space to host your next party or business dinner with a great glass of wine – Parkside has you covered!
