The food was very good and the service was friendly. And, of course, since we were staying in the Menger Hotel, you could not ask for a more convenient location! We highly recommend this restaurant.

The food salad was great. The pasta was okay, a bit under cooked. The recommended peach ice cream was very sweet at first, but less sweet as you finished. The people at our table loved it. Our waiter said that President Bill Clinton ordered gallons...More

This is a typical hotel Sunday brunch. Sliced roast beef, omelettes, etc. They kept running out of the popular items such as eggs benedict and mac & cheese. The desserts were uninspired. I ate mostly cold boiled shrimp, which was good, but not a value...More

Hello. The Colonial Room does not serve American colonial food. I would categorize the menu as continental cuisine. I imagine the term "colonial" refers to the fact that Texas was colonized by Americans when it was still... More

Built as an addition to the original hotel and later remodeled by San Antonio architect Atlee B. Ayres in 1912, the Colonial Room Restaurant reflects the prevailing neoclassical style of its time. Decades of elaborate balls and parties have been hosted in this room.Among the celebrities who have dined here are Presidents Grant and McKinley, Robert E. Lee, and French actress Sarah Bernhardt. The Colonial Room Restaurant's famous mango ice cream was served at both of President Clinton’s inaugurations. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the Colonial Room Restaurant features a fabulous noontime brunch and traditional entrees such as prime rib au jus and lamb shank with linguini. Don't miss the popular Sunday brunch buffet, which tastes even better at a table in the garden courtyard.
