We try a different restaurant every time we are on the River Walk. (And have liked every one we visited - there are so many good food choices.) Due to a rain storm, we dashed into the River's Edge to get out of the rain. We stayed to eat and were happy with our choices of salads and both would... More

Our waiter, Fransico, was working his 2nd day and you would never have known it! He was so friendly and accommodating and helpful. He was engaging and made our dinner memorable. The food was great, too.

The food was good, but all of us ate there two nights in a row because the service was excellent. Chris G was our server the second night. The wonderful host and servers were what made the experience fabulous.

Just popped in for a quick bite while waiting for my room and tried their Southwest Caesar Salad. It had a kick and the dressing was really tasty, a bit on the spicy side. service was nice and efficient and view of the river was a bonus.

The menu offers a number of Tex Mex favorites. The... More
