Great food, waitress and atmosphere! We got seafood, salads steaks and all of it was good. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about menu. We didn't wait long for food. Definitely recommend!

We went for a birthday lunch for one of my employees. Since it was Restaurant Week, the menu for this place was perfect. So, even though we came in for the special, we were treated with great service, a generous portion of what everyone ordered, and full-size desserts, drinks included. We have not been here for a while since parking... More

I was really looking forward to my favorites - the bountiful beef ribs. These were awful - I ordered then with Tony Roma's Red Hot Sauce - the first order came out with the wrong sauce. They took them back and my guess is they "rinsed off" the wrong sauce and put another wrong sauce on them! The ribs had... More

The place is clean, it has friendly staff, but prices are too much for the type of food they serve. For example the short ribs were overcooked, and bitter. I liked the chicken sandwich but maybe because I added coleslaw. And they took for ever to bring our food to the table.

My wife and I went to Tony Roma's out of nostalgia from our past great experiences despite having other excellent meal choices in San Antonio. Our first attempt was good as far as sitting outside and the onion rings were great. The problem occurred with two attempts with getting hot ribs to our table. I could go into details, however...

Yes, I ordered the grilled salmon at a steak place, but I thought the prices were a tad high so I went with the seafood instead. The food was pretty good, and the service was average, but choose the outside dining for a great viewing area of the River Walk tour boats turning around and other people as well. Less... More

The quality of the food has severely diminished since the last time I was at Tony Roma's. The service was OK but not great. Skip it.

Ok, I'm a little biased, this is my favorite place to get ribs anywhere because I like their sweet BBQ sauce. The food and service are great, and yes, it's a chain, but it is so worth the visit.

Description
Welcome to Tony Roma's -San Antonio.

Located on the river walk in the River Center Mall,just downstairs off Commerce Street we have been a river walk favorite since 1985.

With both inside and outside, river side dining, Tony Roma's is a favorite with locals and visitors alike. Tony Roma's is the place to visit for casual dining on the river walk (or as we like to say "Riber Walk.")

Serving ribs, steaks, and seafood, Tony Roma's is the largest casual theme restaurant chain specializing in ribs in the world. With nearly 200 restaurant locations in 17 states, 33 countries and six continents.

Our bar scene is also very popular. Featuring 29°F Drafts, Local and Texas Craft Beers, Handshaken Margaritas, and unique specialty cocktails, our bar is a favorite among the river walk crowd.
