You can sit right along the Riverwalk and have your meal. Afternoon happy hour and I had a tasty margarita! The chicken caesar salad was very good and a huge portion. Really can't comment on any of the other food since that was all I had.

John Touchet is a remarkable bartender and server at the Patio Bar. He is friendly, considerate, efficient and attentive. We are often in town on business and it's service like John's that makes this place feel like our home away from home. Thank you!

We only stopped for locations so can't speak for the food. The frozen margaritas were worth the stop.

We had a salad and it was ok, but lacked flavor and was expensive. The onion straws were not freshly prepared and the chicken salad was bland.

We actually only visited this restaurant for the happy hour. We had great service from Queta. She has a great personality and is genuine in wanting you to have a good time while you are there.

We had a great time at the bar. John Touche was knowledgeable of not only drinks but of the menu, and recommended a great dish.

Our server "Q" delivered some of the best and friendliest service that I've ever experienced. She kept the kids happy through a long wait in the kitchen and didn't seem flustered at all when we got picky about our drink orders. The food is a little overpriced but worth it for the location and the great service. Drinks are fantastic.

Great river-side patio for peaceful seating and an awesome breakfast buffet. Our server, Shannon, was the best!

We were seated in the patio along the River Walk. Great atmosphere. Food was excellent as were the margaritas. Our host, Queta, was very gracious and a delight to meet. We will return on our next visit to the River Walk.
