“Felt like we were riverside dining while enclosed in a beautiful atrium!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

So the Grapevine Texan is a jewel in itself but the Riverwalk Cantina was a great choice for a fun Texmex meal. The atmosphere is colorful, fun, and surreal because you are actually inside. Though one of four restaurants in the resort, the ambience here is the best for sure. The food was not out of this world but pretty good nonetheless and the drinks were fantastic (my friend had a jalapeño margarita that was pretty unique)! The cost was quite reasonable and the service solid but since they were quite busy they were not as attentive as we might have preferred. The fun part was the birthday sombrero and free birthday dessert beautifully designed. A must to experience while staying at the Gaylord.

“YEE HA! SANGRIA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Can't make it to San Antonio? Then stop by the Gaylord hotel in Grapevine Texas and go to the facsimile of San Antonio's Riverwalk. That "River" (indoor) will include the Cantina. This restaurant serves up great Mexican cuisine. Tacos, burritos and Fajitas are part of the menu.

On this night, I decided to try the Mexican fusion, a Salmon TexMex. My wife had the "Texas Burrito". Both were delicious and fresh. Dinners run $12-24. Our entrees were about $15.

Maybe the best part of the meal was the pitcher of Sangria ($32). You can choose red or white and the pitcher seems bottomless.

The service was great and the location is beautiful. The restaurant has an outdoor feel to it, but you're actually indoors thanks to the Gaylord's 4 acre atrium. Whether you stay at the hotel or not, Riverwalk Cantina is good for lunch and dinner

This establishment is open for all meals. The menu for each is varied and the service was good. Perfect location for a quick meal with the Gaylord facility.

“Wonderful outdoors restaurant that is really not outdoors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

It feels wonderful to sit next to the "river" at the Riverwalk Cantina. The food is terrific and plentiful. The service is always attentive and prompt.
