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.

Save your time. We tried to get a few drinks there last weekend, hostess told us the front bar was full but to head to the back bar. We waited 15 minutes and no bartender in sight. But I counted 5 servers walk by us and not a single " are you being helped". There are tons of places to eat and drink on the Riverwalk that appreciate your business, I'd recommend avoiding this place as it's obvious they didn't care. Too bad, the place seemed pretty cool inside.

The servers here have always had attitude based upon at least four visits over two years. This trip was no exception. Our server was competent but rarely came by to check on us. They missed out on additional beer sales because of this. Other servers were observed ignoring customers.

The food has always been good but this time the fish and chips were very soggy. The scotch eggs appetizer were good. The person delivering the food just set it down without saying a word. Odd.

On previous visits, you could sit outside and see the river views but on this visit, they had fabric covering the clear plexiglass panels blocking all views of the river walk.

Saw it was an English pub and had to have fish and chips. OK but not very authentic. Hubby loved the cottage pie.
Probably would not return.

We stopped by early in the evening for a drink and a little food. Everyone who had an entrée was very pleased and the drinks were good. I had the fish and chips which were very good. We would all recommend Mad Dogs after our visit.
