“Always a great time”

No cover charge, great entertainment, and friendly prompt servers. This place is easily the most fun pub on the river walk.

“Absolutely a must in San Antonio.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

The crowd at Durty Nellie's is there to have fun. Listen to live music, drink, get loud and enjoy. They play all the favorites and take requests and its worth a visit for sure. The Wings arent bad either!

“Don't come here if you are an introvert!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

On my most recent trip to San Antonio, my wife accompanied me. As we were strolling the Riverwalk, it began to rain rather hard. We were in the proximity of Durty Nelly's so we ducked in for an afternoon drink and a sandwich. As I said in the title, this is not a bar for introverts. If you want quiet and solitude, you won't find it here. The crowd is engaging and the piano player gregarious. Loosen up, enjoy the music and sing along. A few drinks or beers and you may find that you are a crooner in the making. The service is good as is the food; gourmet it is not, but it's well made and filling. It's a great place to enjoy the liveliness and even meet new people. Being Irish might even be a plus.

“BEST PLACE TO PARTY ON THE RIVERWALK!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is one fun bar. Piano sing - along with songs known and taught to us (Irish limerecks etc). Food is typical bar food, nothing to write home about, but the staff is quick to bring drinks and the piano players keep the atmosphere light and fun. If you got please tip generously these guys work hard for their money!! And the peaunuts!!
