    This locally owned and operated steakhouse is a great place to ‘meat.’

The Vince Young Steakhouse, nestled in the heart of downtown Austin, not only offers USDA prime steaks, seafood and house-made desserts, but also boasts unique spaces for group events. The restaurant is housed in a 100-year-old former produce warehouse, which later served as the home featured in the MTV’s The Real World: Austin. The restaurant was opened in 2010 by husband-andwife partners Phillip and Laura Brown with their close friend—and namesake of the steakhouse—Vince Young.

Guests of the steakhouse are greeted by Penny Longhorn II, a life-size sculpture of a Texas longhorn covered in 2,284 uncirculated U.S. pennies. Copper, gold and burnt orange colors give the restaurant a light, yet sophisticated feel when compared to traditional darker and dimly lit steakhouses. Large screen televisions and wood floors paired with chevron upholstered bar chairs and banquettes provide a casual, yet sleek, clean vibe. University of Texas and Vince Young memorabilia is displayed throughout the restaurant and number 10 himself is often spotted at the steakhouse visiting with fans and signing autographs.

For private events, the steakhouse offers three different private and semiprivate areas. The Ten Room, which features a custom football-shaped table surrounded by a large selection of wines, can accommodate up to 10 people for smaller gatherings, such as board meetings or executive retreat meals. The Cove dining room provides private seating for up to 25 guests while the Bar & Lounge provides semiprivate space for receptions or corporate happy hours and can hold up to 150 attendees. The steakhouse is also available for full restaurant buyouts, and seats up to 200 guests. 

“At Vince Young Steakhouse, we offer a freedom and flexibility when planning small and large events to create a unique and lively fine dining experience. From the food and beverage to our private and semiprivate room options, the only limitation to an event is your imagination, which other corporate venues cannot provide,” says Phillip Brown, owner and executive chef of Vince Young Steakhouse. Located at 301 San Jacinto Boulevard, the steakhouse is within a short walk of numerous Austin hotels and attractions, and literally one block from the Austin Convention Center. Hook ‘em Horns!
