Description: Our chefs have painstakingly created a menu of wine-friendly fare consisting of old world hors d'oeuvres and regionally inspired tapas. From baked Texas goat cheese with kalamata olives to fresh chocolate covered strawberries, the menu caters to the diversity of the food enthusiasts. Charles Court, at the rear of Zinc, is a truly serene gathering place for a rare outdoor experience. The private, spacious courtyard makes for a quiet sanctuary from the clatter of downtown city streets and the Riverwalk.

The menu is small, but there are varied choices, and everything is priced reasonably, The service was excellent on a busy Saturday night. The food varied from good to excellent. We would definitely go again

The hummus, prickly pear margarita, and tableside guac were all the best we have had! We dined in the courtyard and absolutely loved the food and atmosphere.

Loved the wine, food, and atmosphere of this place. Hubby had the famous burger (yep, it lives up to its billing as the best ever) and I had a tremendous salad. Loved the guacamole too. The only reason 4 stars instead of 5 is that our waiter kept disappearing. Got our guacamole but hadn't ordered our main dish yet....didn't see him again until we were completely done with the guac and our first glass of wine. Had to flag down the hostess. Didn't ruin the evening; just sort of funny. Food and atmosphere worth it!

We had a great time here. I read about it on Tripadvisor and we decided to head a short 2 minute walk off Riverwalk to try it. I had the Lamb Sliders and my wife had a Pasta Portofino. Zinc Salads were excellent. We had a Lubbock Texas Cabernet ($30), prices were great, it was fun to sit at the bar. Overall, we would definately go again.

Food was variable pasta was great, lamb sandwich would be great if not as a pseudo wrap and had a decent sauce. Fish and chips hand great fries but fish batter was mushy. Bread pudding was exceptional. Drinks very small and a bit overpriced even if they were a normal volume.
