Yikes! Expect to pay high city hotel food prices for middling fare. There are simply too many choices nearby to consider "eating in." Yeah, the staff was pleasant, but the food...we ate there only once and vowed to spend our money elsewhere...was decidedly average. Throw in high prices and there are just better options with better food.

I had read good reviews about the River's Edge Café, so made plans to stop by there during my stay in the area. We had a nice stroll along the Riverwalk, and found the restaurant relatively easily.

We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet that is offered each morning. Excellent selection including omelettes cooked to order. The bread pudding was delicious. Nice outdoor or indoor seating along the River Walk. A bit pricey but worth it if you come with a big appetite.

Four of us wandered the River walk until inspiration struck. mexican menu was the answer! According to the staff, the Iron Cactus has only been open 6 weeks when we were there 2 Sep 06. The staff was very attentive without being annoying or obtrusive. We spent quite a long time visiting. We are 2 couples who had not seen... More

My family and I had a late lunch at your Riverwalk location. Ms.Shelia was our waitress, the service she provided was outstanding. She was extremely friendly and we felt very welcome and were taken good care of. However, I wish they would bring the tiramisu back!!!
