Awesome selection of beer and homemade sangria make this place a must if you are in San Antonio. Whether you live in SA or are just visiting, make time for a adult beverage at The Friendly Spot. Also, a pet friendly environment so bring out the pups, just make sure they are on a leash.

Wandered here one Friday evening and the place was packed and the game was showing on a big screen. It was a mix of people from families having a beer while their kids ran around the playground (yes, there is a playground for children - brilliant idea!), to frat boys packed around the outdoor tables, to cyclists stopping by to...

We happened to walk by this place while wandering around King William and decided to stop. They had a vast selection of beer, but we opted for the sangria since it was half price. There is plenty of room here with all the colorful tables and chairs. It is very laid back and a good place to just hang out.... More

Visiting San Antonio we decided to try this place. It was a fun place to go try a variety of beers. We had snacks (chips, hot sauce and guacamole) the servings were not large but just enough for the two of us. It was fun to people watch. Seeing the locals that come mixed with the tourists. Got there around... More

I have visited the Friendly Spot on multiple occasions. The first visit was in the evening. There was a screen and projector set up with a movie playing. People sitting around with their dogs enjoying the warm evening. Many beers on tap to choose from. The last visit was last weekend in the early afternoon. My husband and I stopped... More

We went here for a beer on a Friday night. There are two bars with a vast selection of beers including local options, and the prices are quite reasonable. We enjoyed sitting outside and drinking our beers and people-watching.

Went for brunch on a Sunday. The mimosas were yummy. I was disappointed that the brunch menu was only two items. I did try food off the regular menu. We started with the chips and salsa. It comes with house made guacamole and salsa. The chips were too thick. I tried the veggie burger. It looks like it was made... More

Great place to hang out with friends, kids and dogs are welcome! We love to meet friends with children here because it's the best of everything. Mom and dad can relax knowing kids are nearby on the playground. They have water faucets and bowls around the area for the pups. HUGE selection of craft beers and wine on tap. Munchies... More
