This place is day light robbery the food is to say the least food court quality and 5* pricing. The location is very nice but that does not justify the price they charge for food and drinks. There are much better places to eat and drink for a lot less cost and far better.

we stopped in for a quick bite and a beer and ended up staying for hours. The food was good, beer was cold and the piano playing was GREAT, so entertaining.

Beer was the worst - warm and no flavor! Sat outside and the music was offensive to your ears - guy at the piano sang only a few bars of each song. I'd say 95 % of the patrons probably had a better voice. Would never go back again!

I was in San Antonio on business the day before St. Patricks Day, so I had to have corned beef since it was near the holiday and before all the crowds had to "be" Irish. I chose the Reuben with sweet potato fries. Rueben was good, nothing to write home about but it was good, sweet potato fries came out... More

Been here several times and we keep coming back. Have not eaten here because the food is pretty pricey for bar food. Drinks are good though and the entertainment is fantastic. It really is a great place to relax, listen to some music and have a great time singing along w the piano player. Every one we've seen has been... More

Right below the Hilton Palacio Del Rio Hotel so you can totally enjoy a libation or two. It's on the famed Riverwalk Entertainment area. Typically fare for a beer bar with a rowdy atmosphere at time depending on the pianist guiding you through popular sing-a-long songs. My wife loves it!

We stopped by here about 11pm on Friday so my husband could get a beer. We were wanting to hang out some place that had live music, and this was recommended to us. The piano player was good and played a lot of sing along songs. If you plan on coming here, I would suggest getting here early. The place... More

A fantastic bar scene with sarcastic waiters. This is the schtick here. They will make cracks about your drink of choice, but it is all in a natured way. May he RIP, but think of a staff on Don Rickles trainees harping at you. Actually a lot of fun.

This is a lively pub with a piano player blasting out sing a long songs. While very loud, the good is good and the staff friendly. Just don't expect to have a conversation with your friends or family. Enjoy!
