Great Food But An Odd Dining Experience

First, the porterhouse steak for two we ordered was one of the best pieces of meat I have ever tasted. The prime cut was expertly prepared and was cooked exactly the way "medium-rare" is intended to mean. The second floor room where we dined was well lit with large windows encompassing the... read more

Came In about an hour before closing on a Tuesday. Alone, sat at the small upstairs bar. Bar downstairs is much bigger, but only has limited menu. I wanted steak! A few other guys at the bar. Bartenders gave great service, extremely professional, but still personable and fun. The jalapeno toast they give as an appetizer is beyond words good.... More

A must visit steak house in San Antonio. Great ambience with a main floor bar and upstairs dining. Superb service with a fine wine list as well. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the side dishes got the attention the deserved as well. Don't look for any innovative items on the menu. What is in there is simply the finest... More

A very classic and old fashioned atmosphere is available with a Jazz on background. The ambiance looked a bit dark at lunch time despite of the sunny day, but this is kind of normal for a steak house. We visited the place during a convention in Downtown SA last February for a business lunch. A party of five tried this... More

Bohanan's is an old school Texas establishment that exudes class and sophistication, from its lounge and bar, right up to its dinning room! The wait staff is impeccable. Jenny, our server, gave us a master class in fine dinning service. Knowing the menu backwards and forwards she effortlessly presented us the goods with flying colors, and that's where this review...

Bohanans is a great place in downtown SA for a fine meal and great service. Typical of any high end steakhouse they also have a great wine selection. Highly recommended.

Classic, good service, great decor and location. Upscale steakhouse, pricey, but great for business dinners. Make a reservation in order to avoid a bad table

I have been here several times for business dinners as well as personal and the service is great. Food is delicious and I prefer them over the other steak place downtown.
