Bohanan’s fame is founded on sublimely tender prime beef grilled over fragrant mesquite wood. Enjoy extraordinarily delicious Akaushi beef, Chef/Owner Mark Bohanan’s large custom cuts of prime aged corn-fed beef, succulent seafood flown in fresh daily, and spectacular table-side desserts flambé. Imbibe a classic cocktail at the first-floor Bar at Bohanan’s, then join us upstairs for the best steak you’ve ever eaten. Located in a historic building in downtown San Antonio about a block from the River Walk. AAA Four Diamond rating and Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence.

Best steak ever!

This restaurant had the best steak I have ever eaten in my life. I got a filet mignon and it melted in my mouth. I don't think I will ever get a better steak anywhere else. I'm sorry I don't live in San Antonio, This was a lovely restaurant with a great wait staff and a wonderful wine and dessert... read more

So our son wanted to treat us to a nice meal but his first choice had no openings for reservations. So, based on Tripadvisor reviews, we went to Bohanan's. Based on website and reviews, we knew it would be expensive and it turned out to be very expensive. Well when you order a 20 oz ribeye for $79.99, and rack... More

I was in San Antonio for only a couple of days and wanted a wonderful dining experience. This place was absolutely perfect. The New York strip steak was cooked to a perfect medium. I mean perfect! Everything about this dining experience was perfect. We sat at the bar and the bartender made the experience even better. I would definitely recommend... More

It was a Sunday night and the first lace was packed. Should be enough said for a $$$$ restaurant. Arugula salad was delicious. 11 oz filet cooked to Pittsburgh rare perfection. Sides of lobster cream corn and creamed spinach were delicious. And the apple tart was a sweet ending. The service was attentive without being intrusive and we were allowed... More

And why should it be anything less? If you are there to pay $47 for a steak, the service should be impeccable, right!? Bohanan's doesn't disappoint. The classiness of the staff was the best I have experiences yet. They were attentive without being annoying. The steak was one of kind along with the crab cakes. However, the lobster creamed corn...

We were looking for a great Texas steak so we came to one of the best steak houses in San Antonio. The New York Strip Steak (cooked medium well) was absolutely delicious. It was very flavorful and very juicy. My wife had the crab cakes dinner which were mostly crab and light on the breading which is how all crab... More

This is a nice traditional old style restaurant, in San Antonio City center, across from the Majestic Theater. The combination of the Cocktail Bar (with life music) on the ground floor and the dining room upstairs is a nice feature. Greeting and transfer from Bar area to Dining room very professional. When seated at the dining table, service was friendly... More

The food was delicious and that is what I expect when I visit a top end steakhouse. My wife started with the arugula salad, which was outstanding and I had the caesar salad, which was good but go with the arugula. My wife had the 7oz filet and I had the 12oz NY strip for dinner. She had the cream... More

So disappointed. Very over rated. Steak just so so. Dry and not flavorful. For the price you expect better. Side and salad mediocre. Ambiance nice and service, but very loud if you want to talk. Has way better stake at Bella on the river.
