Went to this place with a business group and don't have really any reason to say I would I go back. First let's start with the good. The river walk is a jewel of the southwest. I mean from the scenery to the climate to the people, you can't beat this area of San Antonio. There are so many places... More

Went there to eat with a few friends and my gf and was utterly disappointing. The burgers were dry and overcooked, The chili burger was like... wheres the chili... was charged for wrong items that were brought to our table which we were still made to pay for and we seemed to be kind of rushed out of there since...

Nice view of the river walk from the patio, but the food was mediocre at best. Had dinner here with friends while attending the PAX convention. The four of us ordered a variety of steak cuts and all were bland with an excess amount of fat. Drinks were overpriced and the staff efficient but not particularly helpful or friendly. Go... More

Crappy chicken fried steak. The thing was all breading. Seriously guys, learn how to make a decent CFS. Thanks to the nice waiter that realized I was right and deleted the cost off our bill.

After 5 days in Texas and yet to eat steak, we were drawn to this restaurant as we wandered along the Riverwalk (not much of a river though). Staff excellent, great service, reasonable beer, and the steaks we ordered all cooked perfectly.

Upstairs overlooking the River Walk with a great view. The food was very good and we had good service. The waitress was very attentive and friendly.

Neat place. Walked in on a whim. The burger was tasty and they served the beer in a frosty mug. The view was fantastic!

Great balcony view of the Riverwalk. Bone steak was ok, not great. Service was good, beer was cold. There are a lot of choices on the Riverwalk. I will choose another next time...

We had a good meal at a reasonable price. It wasn't anything fancy but it was filling. We sat outside on the second floor. Up there you are removed from the hustle and noise and sit amid the lights with a view of the river.
