Description: We are located right on the SAN ANTONIO RIVERWALK, directly under the SAN ANTONIO HYATT REGENCY HOTEL.Unlike other SAN ANTONIO BARS & CLUBS, MadDogs is an AUTHENTIC BRITISH theme pub. We offer a full range of draft & bottled IMPORTED BEERS, ice cool exotic cocktails and extensive domestic beverage options. We are situated on the VERY BEST Riverwalk Location; our tropical terrace nestles on the banks of The River itself. The uninterrupted tranquility allows options for relaxing with a ‘cold one’ or simply people watching as the Riverwalk tourists bustle by. Either way you can’t avoid enjoying our LITTLE PIECE OF BRITAIN, whilst basking in the South Texas sun.

I had the vegetarian version of shepherd's pie. It was okay, but not great. Friendly staff, but they're pretty frantic, due to the crowds coming in from the River Walk.

Really annoyed that the yards are so much more per ounce than a regular pint and the staff didn't inform me and was unapologetic. If you want an acceptable environment on the river walk when nothing else is going on I guess this place is ok, but don't expect anything from the scummy staff.

The food is pretty good, drinks are good too. The atmosphere was fun. The best part is where they are located. Nice shady spot right along the river for people watching which there is highly entertaining.

Husband and I have walked by many times when we travel to San Antonio but somehow today we were in the mood for pub grub. Mad Dogs did not disappoint. While there, we read the negativity with great amusement, and we just don't share those opinions. Our service was attentive and quick, the lunchtime special of steak and ale stew had a wonderful puff pastry on top and properly cooked falling apart meat, big chunks of tasty carrots and potatoes. Decor and location are great and it was cool and breezy on a very hot day. Thumbs up!

The bar is right on the water and very intentially staffs the place with attractive servers, but it really wasnt a great place to get a beer. Drafts were very expensive, $15 for a 24 oz and they serve anything larger than a pint in those yards which ruined it for me. I did not eat since it was packed for the Spurs game. It was fun for the Spurs game, but It would not be were I would send someone to watch a game.
