I liked that it was conveniently located in the heart of the Riverwalk. We had a nice view of the river and the lights. But their food was not good. I was expecting Texas-size portions and it was not that at all. I ordered the surf and turf, I asked for the sirloin to be cooked medium but it was... More

Not bad, but not gourmet steaks. Food was edible, atmosphere was great, and the view from the balcony was awesome. Would do it again if seating was available. Not so much if there was a wait.

Steaks were excellent. Cooked perfectly, tender and juicy. Great service and pretty setting on the Riverwalk. We would definitely eat here again if in the area.

Food was great. Filet cooked to perfection skip the appetizers though. Salad perfect real baked potato Best filet. Tasted like I grilled at home just watch out for falling tree twigs if you eat on the patio.

The tater tots were the best part of the meal. The pulled pork sandwich was extremely greasy and bland and my wife asked for a cheeseburger well done, but it came out rare. The waitress immediately took it back and off the bill, but it soured the experience. The prices were also a bit steep for what seemed like the... More

I have enjoyed a world class tortilla soup almost every time I have eaten at the Lone Star. This place is a very sensible, solid, and usually tasty choice for an eatery in downtown (tourist zone) San Antonio.

This was our first restaurant we had lunch at on the River Walk - oh my goodness, I knew we should have kept on walking. My husband had the Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich and he couldn't bite thru it - it was very tough! And our service, well that's another story - not good. So if you ask me, there... More

Rib eye and Fish, which would you suggest? I asked our waiter. He said with no hesitation "the steak". Its not good. Sent back twice because medium rare comes out well done and when told it is remade and comes back rare. Leave the vegetables, take the steak. Mistake! Vegetables tasted vinegary! How on earth do you mess it up... More

We ordered an appetiser which our server forgot to order. It eventually came after we had finished our main course. My steak was very dry and seemed to have been cooked then kept in a warmer and reheated. The fries I had were barely warm. Unlikely I would return.
