Went for lunch on this restaurant with family as we wanted to eat at a steakhouse. I ordered a rib eye medium rare and got a well done instead. Same for my wife. After we told the waitress she just stared at us and than disappeared for an hour. The rest of our needs during lunch were taken care by other passing waiters who were kind enough to take care our orders. The other plates ordered were mediocre at best and at the end our waitress showed up for the check. Needless to say, her tip matched the service.

My salad with smoked chicken breast was very good, as was the prickly pear margarita. Those that ordered steak were very disappointed. It was almost too tough to cut, much less eat.

Although we only had beverages and no food, the location overlooking the Riverwalk was nice and service was attentive even when they were busy as Fiesta had begun.

Keep going! There are so many awesome places to eat on the river walk, Wouldn't recommend. Our first meal ever in San Antonio, and we made the mistake of choosing this one because as tourists we wanted the full Texan experience.

Not saying the food was bad, but absolutely nothing special. Our Meal took FOREVER, and part of our order was wrong. Then our waiter had the hide to Hint that they were closing, and we needed to hurry up, part way through our meal. He offered dessert (I supose he had to) but we obviously took the hint and said no. "If our food hadn't taken over half an hour to come out it wouldn't have been an issue!! " Disappointed.

We were are group of 13 ladies. The restaurant was full to capacity but our waiter, Roland did his best to keep our waiting for drinks, dinner and dessert to a minimum. We were happy and the food was good, especially the desserts.
