Stopped in for lunch. Food was great, service not so much. They were very busy, and we felt like we were lost in the rush.

After weeks of waiting for my business trip to come around I finally was able to indulge in these fantastic pancakes. The atmosphere plays into the setting of the old bank. The staff is friendly and interactive with the guests. Defiantly worth a visit for...More

We were looking for a place not far from the Alamo, and found this one. There was a line outside and we were told it would be about 20 minutes...that was to be seated. I felt like I had stepped back in time. Not sure...More

Had a healthy breakfast of oatmeal and 2 scrambled eggs. Great service! Nice atmosphere and locally owned. Location just off the Riverwalk on Commerce Street was convenient from the hotel. Lastly very reasonable prices.

I thought that the only way you'd get this kind of eating (not dining) experience would be to go to some small town in the hinterland. No 'engineered by corporate committee' way to run a restaurant. As you know; these days, in a city the...More

Looked good from the outside. In business a long time. Had the hamburger, which was just average.... probably should have had a German offering. Skip the potato pancakes. Staff was friendly. Seemed to be a mix of locals as well as tourists. I wouldn't say...More

The Riverwalk is so convenient and enjoyable that any hotel is a pleasant walk to get there. I don't remember which would be the closest, if walking is difficult for you, but if not, it's no more than a ten or fifteen minute... More
