BEWARE! Went here on a Saturday night. The short female bartender with dark brown hair, light eyes, and slight gap in her teeth stole my money. Gave her a 20 for a $5 drink and she claims I gave her a $10 bill. How ironic that RIGHT after I received my incorrect change the female bartender strategically disappeared quickly from the bar for a few minutes. I stood there and waited for her to return to confront her. She wanted to disappear out of the bar for a bit because she knew she had just stolen my money and didn't think I'd wait to get it back. This has happened at this place multiple times based on other reviews. Talked to the manager about this and was mistreated and disrespected and he didn't want to talk about it. Never gave my money back that was stolen from me. They will pull this trick on you and claim you gave them a small bill and will take your money. I will never go here again. PLEASE beware of this female bartender. When I find out her name I will put her on blast.
I was not expecting great service seeing as we went while it was crowded for the UT v. WV game. But I never got the food that was ordered (after an hour of waiting and reminding the server). When my girlfriend went to pay the tab, she was ignored for a good 5 minutes before she got the bartender's attention. After they removed the food that never came, we left without leaving a tip. She called me today to tell me that they charged a tip anyway. Watch your wallet folks!
Mah keedz – A great bar. Free melting pots of alcohol are often passed around, and they are never out of good food, such as my personal favourite 'scorched earth', which is all roasting in Texas. Some of the regulars can be very unruly but as long as they have the capital to keep it running, I am more than happy!
Great Live Music – Even for 6th street, the live band they had last night was awesome. If they are a reoccurring act, then Logan's is absolutely gonna be my new Wednesday hangout. Seriously, good food, good service, great music and plenty of beer choices
Great Bar! – All I'm gonna say is......huge beers for little money! drink up pals.
Terrible Door Staff – Out of a group of twenty people that went into Logan's, the only one of y group that didn't go in was the only black person of the group. He was stopped by the doorman and not allowed to go in, even though my friend had his real ID with him (he is 22). I asked for the manager, who didn't really do anything, except allowing his doorman to talk to us in a derogatory way in front of him. He then proceeded to let us know that "they had plenty of customers" and that it wasn't a problem if we left because they didn't let our friend in. Without a doubt the most shameful display of poor manners by door staff I've experienced. I ADVISE YOU TO NOT GO, and I'll keep advising other people not to go, because what they did to my friend was not right.
Logans on 6th Rocks – We were in town for a week and tried most places and Logans was far and away the cleanest with the most normal people. It's a "nicer" crowd than all of the other tatooed ratholes on 6th street...TRUST ME. The service and staff was excellent and we were there when it was busy. The salads are awesome and the sourdough burger to die for. The liter beers are great with great selections. They play incredibly funny movie clips. If you want a specific game on just ask the bartender, he will oblige. Bottom line, when we come back to the ATX we are definitely going to Logans on 6th.

Suggest you give it several months before you go, perhaps it will improve. This was our first time to 6th street. The place looked like fun so we went in for food and drinks. We had 6 people and ordered appetizers with our 1st round of drinks, then everyone ordered a sandwich. After our third round the wraps my husband and I ordered arrived. After asking twice and 13 minutes later we got ketchup, napkins, salt, pepper and flatware. By this time our fries were cooling off quickly. Ten more minutes the remaining burgers arrived. We were almost done eating. The 1st appetizer arrived several minutes after that and was mostly cold ? we told them to scratch the other appetizer. One burger had to go back because it was cold. We enjoyed the beer and shots, service was poor at best. We were fairly good natured about it and the manager was good ? wrote off the appetizers (good since we didn?t even get one of them and sent back the other) and brought us a round of drinks. We didn?t stay long and probably won?t be back. Pity because our bill was still $125.00 and we were not there very long, we also tipped well regardless.
Limited selections – I know it's a sports bar, but please have a small selection of wine for those who don't like beer. Come on, how expensive is it to carry a few labels??? Secondly, the food selection needs lots of help. Nothing of interest, small portions. HELP.
Never a wait for a drink, Friendly peeps, Austin Staple! – $3.50 for a Liter of Beer??? WOW! They have $3.50 Domestic Liters till 11 pm on Thursdays and $5 from 11pm till close. Logan's is an Austin icon in my view. Been there for over 10 years(since I was in school). I still go there on weekends. People are great...its trendy and always beautiful women to look at. Never a problem with this place...Best sports bar in Downtown! Great late night spot.
