This restaurant has been operating for a long time. It is right next door to Hilton Palacio del Rio, and the easiest parking to use is Riverbend Garage. There is seating inside with air conditioning as well as seating outside with view of the Riverwalk....More

Bring a thick wallet as it is expensive, but worth it. Was the best filet I have had in a long time. All the food was excellent and service matched the quality of the food. Good atmosphere also. No skimping on the alcohol in cocktails...More

Dine indoors or in an historic building or dine outside on patio deck. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and prepared as ordered. Nice wine selections.

Description
The Little Rhein Steak House is housed in the Bombach House in historic La Villita. The Coahuiltecan Indians founded a settlement here in the 1500s, and in the early 18th century Spanish soldiers and Canary Islanders established a village on the site. The Mexican General Santa Anna encamped here during the battle of the Alamo. During the 19th century, German immigrants designated this area as the Little Rhein district, hence the name Little Rhein Steak House. In 1847, Otto Bombach, a carpenter, built the first two-story structure here for his family. The Bombach House was thereafter utilized as an early Texas home, a boarding house, a grocery store and bar, a private school, and a hangout for desperados. Old photos, posters, beverage trays and other San Antonio collectibles adorn the limestone walls of the Main Dining Room. Antique accents including brass lights from the Federal Courthouse and wooden benches from the Katy Train Depot help to create a comfortable rustic atmosphere
