My wife had the special, . . . . halibut cooked to perfection. Our waiter Spencer took excellent care of us. Lunch took a about an hour, so the revolving restaurant gave us an unrestricted view of San Antonio and Texas. Would go here again.

Very upsetting dining experience. We choose Chart House for our anniversary/Christmas Eve dinner based on our familiarity with CH in other states, their reliable quality of food and the nice view of San Antonio with the sparkling Christmas lights below. Well that's where the joy of our celebration stopped. Our waiter was a nightmare, extremely unfriendly to the point of... More

Food is nothing great considering the bill, the appetizer taste like fish grease, the mash potatoes taste like a bandaid and my asparagus taste like the oil from a BBQ grill. I loved our waiter he was very nice. The view is gorgeous. We paid $125 for the 2 of us and I can say that a fast food restaurant... More

My family dined at The Chart House last nite and we all thought it was one of the best meals we've had in a long time! After a short ride to the top of Tower of America's, we were greeted by a hostess that took us right to our table, which was next to a big glass window overlooking San... More

We went to the bar area for Happy Hour and had appetizers and drinks. It is on top of the Tower of Americas and there is a great view besides the delicious food and good choice of drinks. We went two days and really enjoyed it. One day the servers seemed preoccupied but the other day the service was great.... More

Came up for Lunch. Our service was great, the menu was very affordable for lunch (pretty much in line with any other restaurants around town) and the views were fantastic. Not much else to say but give this place a shot for lunch.

We had lunch at this revolving restaurant high atop the Tower of the Americas. It was not busy and was very quiet which is good for conversation. We enjoyed the changing scenery as the restaurant made a full circle of the area. We didn't pay the fee to go to the observation deck because we felt the view right under... More

I made a reservation the day prior for a 7:30 dinner. The elevator ride up was neat and had a window to view the ride up. We had a short wait until we were seated, which was right by the window & as requested. I didn't notice a foul carpet smell & neither did my pregnant wife. The food was... More
