Was overcharged, treated with disdain by a nasty tempered server, and hung up on after refusing to correct the bill. NEVER AGAIN!!

What a fun place on the riverwalk. So much Irish charm here in should be in Ireland. I would highly recommend just stopping in for a beer if you get a chance.

I stopped her a couple times during my stay in San Antonio. It's location right on the Riverwalk allows for some great people watching and it's open late for food, too! It has both inside and outside seating.
