First night in San Antonio, went to Nellys for drinks and fun, wasn't disappointed at all, piano player was a lot of fun, our waiter was Michedngelo, or something like that. He couldn't have been any better, drinks came fast and all the peanuts you can eat. When we went to leave he even to us to the nearest hotel... More

Stopping here anytime you are on the river walk is a good time. Many groups stop by: young & old, bachelorette parties, couples, families, and friends. Service is never great. Peanut shells end up on the floor. People go for the music and opportunity to sing out loud. Usually a good time - however - it all hinges on the... More

Extremely slow to no service. Terrible food - left most of it. Tables were dirty. Sounded like alley cats singing and pouncing on the piano.

Make sure this place is on your bucket list while in San Antone. Lots of fun and great talent at the piano. They take requests friends m the audience and have huge laughs. Language can be a little "colorful" but is a Pub.... So go with it and enjoy. The staff was very friendly and the drinks where very good!

Great place for a drink and song on the Riverwalk. We visited early on Friday evening and the crowd was small but entertaining. Great selection of alcohol and typical pub food. The centerpiece of entertainment was a piano player who would play and sing requests from the crowd. All are encouraged to sing along. There is also outside seating on... More

We stopped in on Halloween night. Piano player was very entertaining. Bar service was slow and no servers were coming around to tables, at least that we could see. It was fun though--a little rowdy and crowded, people sing along to well-known songs. But a fun place to be on a Halloween/Saturday night. Very fun experience. I would recommend stopping... More

It's a piano bar and Irish pub all in one! Loved the atmosphere inside. It's a great place to stop and have a drink. You forget you're on the riverwalk while you're inside. Highly recommend.

The best part of coming here is sitting outside, sipping a drink and listening to the pianist inside playing one song after another. Quite good! Could have sat there all night, but to too much else to see around the Riverwalk. Drinks were good, food looked good but we had already eaten.

I rarely ever visit Irish pubs as I live in Ireland and don't like imitations. Anyway just my gripe. Stopped here for a coffee, the server was very friendly and service was good. They offered a good selection of drinks and food. I would imagine it's very busy evenings and weekends as its at a popular part of the river... More
