We stopped here with my wife and 11 year daughter. of course we always sit outside. Inside was very lively, and fun, yes kids were inside also, we sat outside cause we prefer. Food was good, drinks were good. Proabley more of a party place for 21-30 crowd, but not bad.

Every time I get down San Antonio way, I try to get to this place. It's a drink-beer-and-throw-peanut-shells-on-the-floor kind of place. What makes it great is the guy at the keyboard making up hysterical songs about politics, relationships and current events. The later you get there the less appropriate the lyrics. This time I was there on a Friday night... More

Lunch for 4, 3 sanwiches and 1 Fish and Chips was $60 plus tip. Maybe if we had gone for dinner, which is the same menu with entertainment we would have felt like it was worth it.

Great pub on the San Antonio Riverwalk. The piano player really makes it fun. It is a little small, but cozy. They have Kilkenny Ale, which is hard to find, but one of my favorites.

This little Irish-style pub is on The Riverwalk inside the Hilton...we had drinks and enjoyed the atmosphere, all of which were excellent. Wife really enjoyed the chocolate martinis. We didn't order any food so can't comment on that. Recommended as a great little live music pub in The Riverwalk.

The sing along piano was soooo much fun! Great Black & Tan and food. Sit where you can see the piano player and give him requests.

My daughter and I visited the Irish Pub on our last night in San Antonio. I wish we had tried it sooner because it was a lot of fun with the piano/harmonica player. The patrons were into the sing alongs and the place was packed. We met several interesting people including a bachelorette party. Our outside waiter, Juan Zacarias, was... More
