You sure can't beat the atmosphere of sitting on the patio on a moonlit night and enjoying a beer while boat loads (literally) of tourists sail by singing Christmas carols. An amusing place to enjoy a pint and people watch.

Awesome bartenders, great servers, and energetic atmosphere. The pints are always cold and plentiful. This a great place to just relax and meet new people, or hang out and have fun with friends. The music is awesome, along with the piano player and special songs.

If you are in San Antonio and on the River Walk be sure to stop into Durty Nellie's. Enjoy some free peanuts and a beer while singing along with the piano player!

We were able to find a table to fit the 4 of us and our food. The menu is limited and we thought a bit expensive. The fish and chips... More

This is a small bar, nothing fancy, but they have cold beer and someone playing the piano for sing a longs. Fun little place to go and hear some music, have a drink and laugh. They serve food, which we did not try, and there are peanuts on the table.
