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

This is a great place to have a drink and sing some Irish tunes. If you love those piano sing along songs this is your place. It's loud and funny with quick service, once you find a seat. Its not a big place, but be patient. The piano man takes a break every 20 minutes that's when someone will leave.... More

I've been to better pubs. Have had better service and better music. It was hot and humid. The place got better once more people showed up, but the entertainment left alot to be desired singing wise, but was actually a good piano player. Maybe I should visit on an actual weekend night to get the full effect.
