We went here for lunch on a Monday. It's expensive but you would expect that given the location atop the Tower of the Americas. Food was ok, good but not excellent. Beer selection was pitiful. Waiter was fine but he delivered our bill charging the dinner prices till I questioned him. The main reason you go here is for the... More

This was an amazing place to go. Very Romantic. Stunning views as it rotates around at the top of the Tower of America. Food, drinks and wait staff aim to please.

A group of 7 of us went up for dinner our last night in town. We shared appetizers of calamari, oysters and shrimp cocktail. For dinner my husband and I had a petite filet, lobster mac and cheese, and swordfish. Desserts are divine, try the mud pie. The restaurant offers a 360 degree view of San Antonio at night.

Too expensive!!! 3 shrimp and 3 scallops was $37. You know how many shrimp and scallops I can buy at the grocery store for $37??? A mixed drink was $12. A baked potato was $3 extra. All told $100, oh yeah, plus a $20 tip. Our waiter made $50 in tips at our table alone. I want to work there!!

We have dined every year at the Chart House at the Tower of Americas. Every year it is the same story: nice view, great sunset, super slow service and just okay food. When it happens once, you forgive. When it happens 5 times, it is time to eat elsewhere. If you want to take the kids, go during the day... More

Enjoyed great seafood at the top of the Tower of the Americas. Nice view of the city. I had the lobster and my husband had the sea bass. Both were prepared expertly. We enjoyed the crab, mango salsa, & avocado stack for starters and Cree burlee for dessert. All were great. Prices are a little high, but within reason for... More

Every year for my wife's Birthday we celebrate with Chocolate Cake. This year we happened to be at Towers of America's and went into the Chart House for Chocolate Cake. This crew whipped up a Chocolate Molten fudge cake. It was unreal awesome, and from the manager to the chef and down to the waiter brought their A-game!!! Hands down... More

Food and service was awesome however was disappointed with cleanliness many of the windows had various food and smears on them. Considering the whole point is the view I would think the Windows are key factors! Please clean your windows!

We made a reservation for dinner knowing you can't get a seat otherwise. The presentation of the food was beautiful and the views are unmatched. The seafood is very good, but the steaks are just average. The prices are pretty steep as can be expected due to the location. ***I recommend the calamari appetizer! The reason I did not rate...
