If you are hungry you might wanna skip here. Portions are not that big. Food was good and they have great drinks. Often crowded and you will have to wait to be seated.

This is a very popular spot at the Pearl; tables are filled with happy people, young and old, who come here to unwind and enjoy the ambiance of the San Antonio River Walk without the throng of tourists walking by. From here, one can explore...More

Ate here with a large group. The margaritas are phenomenal. I had steak tacos and my husband had fish tacos. He loved them. Best he'd ever had. Service was good and the atmosphere was very nice.

My wife and I went for a late evening bite. We didn't want a super big meal so we shared a salad and a tlayuda (Mexican pizza). Both were very delicious (okay, okay - I know you can't totally mess up a salad, after all)....More

I gave this place a second chance after the first bad trip, and it was deja vu. We sat down at the outdoor bar to leftover dishes and a mess on the bar. The older bartender asked us what we wanted, as if we were...More

Yes. There's a park adjacent to the patio. We saw lots of families with their four legged friends.

They can and do take reservations, especially if you are coming with a large group. Otherwise you can expect to wait your turn. I recommend that you get there some 5-10 minutes before your planned lunch or dinner date so they can find you a table. I have never seen anyone walk away in a huff due to not having a table available. They try to accommodate you!
