About the Ranch

Ranch 616 Origins

In 1999, our late Founder Kevin Williamson opened Ranch 616, a South Texas-style ice house reminiscent of his many years hunting and fishing the lands of South Texas and the Gulf of Mexico. It was at these many South Texas ice houses where he was served some of his finest meals and memories, and Williamson wanted to bring the South Texas Ice House town-gathering-spot culture and cuisine to the heart of Austin, Texas. At Ranch 616, Williamson combined the flavors of the Gulf Coast and the Hill Country with the spices of the border towns of Texas.
