The Tower gives great view and the restaurant slowly spins to give you 360 degree view. The steak is good. We also had a good wine -- Silver Oak -- which they marked up a ton. It's a great place to have a little special dinner away from the madding crowd of Riverwalk.

This place is wonderful. I have been to another Chart House and was pleased there as well. The views from the Tower of the Americas is awesome. It's currently the 2nd tallest freestanding tower in the USA. If you go during happy hour the drinks and food are extremely reasonable. Atmosphere is second to none. Staff were attentive and pleasant.... More

The Chart House near the top of the Tower of the Americas is wonderful. A special elevator whisks you to the top where you are greeted by a welcoming and we'll-versed staff. Regardless of the number in your party, there is always a great view as the restaurant revolves almost without notice. Great and affordable lunch menu with soup and... More

The slow turning of the restaurant around the vista f San Antonio and its hinterland makes you want to just take a leisurely lunch, and so we did. Service here was friendly and efficient. Food and drink were both reasonably priced, and the former was well presented and tasty, particularly the shrimp and crab dip. The bread was also quiet... More

The rotating restaurant on top of The Tower of the Americas has magnificent views. The food, we had filet mignon, is quite good. A pity that the service is so poor. If I get charged $ 200 for the two of us, I expect to be served by an educated water who knows how to open a champagne bottle, who... More

Food was excellent and view was incredible. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. A little pricey, but if you can spend a little more, it is well worth the cost.

This was the last stop on my visit to San Antonio. I'm so happy a friend told me about it. I would have missed it. The restaurant is located in the Tower of Americas. The restaurant is similar to the Space Needle in Seattle. It rotates while you dine. You really get a great view of the city. I definitely... More

We looked at the menu online so we knew what we were getting into and pre-picked our selections. Then we get there and oldest son changes from a salad to a $35 steak! LOL. The restaurant is really pretty and the view...can't complain. We made reservations and were seated promptly. We ordered drinks and bread, then placed the order later.... More

Very touristy- food was decent but server was rushing us to flip table. She forgot my salad and got my entry wrong. She owned up to it when check came. Ordered bottle of Jordan Cabernet and was priced accordingly for a restaurant. However she filled glass to top! Talk about hurry up. Even hostess was disinterested upon arrival. Even you... More
