A word from Arcade Midtown Kitchen
Located at the Historical Pearl Brewery, ARCADE Midtown Kitchen is spiced with a mix of Pearl's historic past and San Antonio's casual culinary sophistication. Something old, something mood, something borrowed, and damn good food - ARCADE is a friendly and comforting mix of re-born brewery past and boardwalk street café that takes hearty food & spirits as seriously as it takes 'taking it easy.'

Diner Reviews
  • "I took my dad to Arcade for a surprise birthday lunch. The hostess seated us at the chef's table and the server greater my dad with a "happy birthday." I highly reccomend ordering the calamari, it was delicious. We took our time ordering, everything was amazing. We ordered the chocolate gelato for desert...again, AMAZING. The service and food was excellent. I will be coming back soon!"

  • "I brought my family to eat at Arcade and was blown away with the whole restaurant. Being amatuer foodies, we really appreciated the vibe of the place. My son even deemed it his favorite restaurant. What impressed the most was that the bartenders actually delivered the drinks and waited for the person to taste to ensure that it was to their liking. I would definitely recommend."

  • "The Triple for the day was not so inspired today and not up to the usual standard. The salad of shredded carrots and shaved celery was extraordinarily difficult to eat (to get it on the fork and to the mouth), plus the carrots looked dehydrated, like they had been prepped well in advance and just sat there. And who wants shaved celery? The sandwich half was good. The soup of the moment was okay. We have lunched at Arcade enough times to have anticipated better. But not to worry. We will return to try again. Everyone has an off day."

  • "From the moment we sat down at our table we felt rushed by our waiter. While we appreciate prompt service this was over the top. It was obvious they were in a hurry to turn the table. Appetizers arrived less than five minutes after having been ordered and they were room temperature at best turning cold before we could finish eating them. Our salmon dish was overcooked, the NY strip steak was poor quality cut of meat and our chicken dish was nothing to get excited about."

  • "We were heading to the JT concert and wanted to eat something tasty beforehand. Arcade did not disappoint. We had four items from the taste menu (appetizers): lobster tacos, pork belly, chipotle shrimp flatbed and goat cheese and caramelized onion flatbread. We explained we were going to the concert so we needed to be fast. They took our order and the appetizers arrived quickly and right after each other. They were all delicious, but the pork belly with fresh ricotta was our favorite. Arcade has yet to disappoint. We love the food, the ambience, and the staff."

  • "We went of a Saturday night, great upbeat vibe. Our group is from LA and we were in San Antonio for business but wanted to get away from the Riverwalk area. This place hit on all cylinders, great service, food was top notch, imaginative cocktails and solid wine. I had the scallops the were perfectly cooked, clearly they get the talent from across the street at CIA. All six of us really enjoyed it."

  • "This is the second time I've been to Arcade. The first visit and the second were excellent. The food was great, and the staff was just as great. Both times I was entertaining an out-town client. Other customers looked to be professionals or high net backgrounds."

  • "Attractive place with very good service and some awesome food. The only negatives were the closeness of tables and noise level."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I kind of expected better for Brunch. We had a long wait for our food. I was surprised to see that a cocktail cost more than my dish that I ordered. Mine was good but my husbands chicken and waffle tasted like they had been sitting on the pass for too long. His chicken was dry and the waffle... tasted like a hotel breakfast buffet waffle. I dont know if we will be back. Maybe."

  • "Booked a birthday dinner for my wife with a few friends. Wanted to try something new. Was not disappointed. Everyone in our group of six loved what they ordered. Wine was good, food was great and the desert was wonderful. Will be back to try other things on the menu. Also will recommend for people try it."

  • "Felt like we were troubling the staff to be there. Sat for 10 minutes before being greeted. Many staff (servers, bartender) including the person who looked to be in charge busy on cell phones and not acknowledging guests. Attitude was like we should feel privilged to be allowed to be in the restaurant. Food was pretty good. Having spent spent over $300 for 2 thought they would at least not felt troubled for me being there."

  • "It was a great simple lunch the broccoli soup and the chicken salad sandwich on the chefs choose 3 were amazing"

  • "Sure the cocktails are hand crafted but who likes to pay $13 for a four ounch glass with a huge slice of orange peel in it."

  • "We ordered calamari, romaine salad, flatbread (both) to start. All were delicious. The scallop entree was fabulous. I would return just for the scallops. Cocktails were also very nice, especially the margarita I tasted. I ordered the Willamette Valley pinot gris that paired well with apps as well as entrees."

  • "Impeccable from start to finish. Everyone was extremely friendly, professional and attentive. Great wine,drink, and food recommendations from our server Ian. We will be back again and again!"

  • "This is an excellent place by the Pearl Beer Brewery. The outdoor patio is charming and the service was excellent. The fare is fit for foodies. We had the lobster taco and the pork belly eggs benedict. Excellent and distinctive! We passed on cocktails although they had a very interesting list of possibilities. I highly recommend this place."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The good food and service was completely negated by too much noise. We could not hear each other across the table. (We are not old and we do not have hearing issues.) We yelled at each other until we were hoarse. Then we resorted to writing notes to each other. We thought about moving outside but it was hot and there was music blaring out there. I had a terrible sore throat the next day. Very sad as the food was good. Will not go back until noise level is addressed."

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This establisment has a great atmosphere for an after hours bar scene as the cocktails are excellent! Kudos to the bartender, my date and I each tried a couple of specialty cocktails from the menu and they were all wonderfully made. I think the cocktails are a little overpriced though. Our server didn't seem too knowledgable and kept pushing us to order extra sides. The food was good but would have loved to see a slightly bigger portion for the amount we paid. Leaving with over a $100 tab and not feeling full was dissapointing."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The food is always good, the server a bit surly, and noise level is not good for much conversation."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I took my better half here to try a new restaurant. The atmosphere is rather modern and felt stiff. We were seated in the far back and it was still relatively loud with noise from the kitchen as well as other patrons. It was also a bit cold (and the metal chairs didn't help). The food was good, my only thought is perhaps the portions could have been a bit larger perhaps. Our server was also good, he even made up for something that was most likely our mistake. My biggest complaint is that I don't believe the total experience, although good, is good enough to command the prices that are charged. I'd go back if it wasn't as expensive in the future."

  • "Enjoyed lunch on Saturday after visiting the Pearl Farmer's Market. As always, the lobster taco and calamari were excellent. Great service - he was very helpful and patient as the 4 of us decided on a cocktail to enjoy."

  • "My husband I and I celebrated our 5th anniversary here and I made the comment on our reservation just thinking they might seat us somewhere different than if we'd just walked in. We received "happy anniversary" from numerous staff members and little candles on our desserts. The atmosphere was nice and the food was excellent. Cooked to perfection, paired and plated creatively and I can't say enough about the scallops. Would recommend without a doubt!"

  • "The food was okay. Very small portion for the price. I ordered the shrimp and beans and the beans were cold."

  • "I have been there twice for casual business dinners. first time was excellent second time service was lacking but overall a great place. A favorite in the Pearl Brewery Restaurants"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Food is very good. Try the calamari for the appetizer as the sauce is excellent. The salmon, scallops and beef filets are very good entrees. Desserts are also excellent...the chocolate cake and banana stack are tough to beat. Good drink menu....try some of the concoctions. Ambiance is just fair. The place is very loud...don't go there if you're looking for a quiet meal/date. Our wait staff tried to be too helpful sometimes to the point where it got slightly annoying."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The food and service was top notch. It was a little loud, mostly to do with poor acoustics and lots of hard surfaces. Portions were perfect, not too large or small and the menu was stellar."

  • "Two of us went for a late lunch. The food and service were outstanding. We had the calamari, mussels, flatbread w/goat cheese, and flank steak sandwich. All dishes were very thoughtfully prepared with outstanding flavors & ingredients, including pleasing presentations. The only negative (which is not the restaurant's fault) is the noise from the construction vehicles (we were seated outside)."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "A noisy, busy place with a youthful vibe and innovative food at Sunday brunch. In our group, lobster soft taco and chocolate pancakes were a hit. The Happy Daddy filet was cooked rare to perfection and the fried eggs of the El Rancho were perfectly over easy (not runny) but the beans were tough. The complimentary mini birthday cake was a really nice (& yummy!) touch. Service was pleasant but could have been more attentive. Would recommend the food but not the full experience."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "Went for Brunch. The last time we were there service was so so and had issues concerning where they sat us. This time everything was perfect. The Lobster Soft Taco was fantastic and I highly recommend it. "

  • "Hello, This was our fourth or fifth time to Arcade and this time we treated our friends for their anniversary. Our reservation was not ready in time... which is no big deal, except for that the hostesses told us a quick 2 -5 minute clean-up to turn the table was all it would take. I think we sat 20 min later. Our server was less than greeting and seemed to be fighting to get out of the weeds or something.... we felt rushed and not very well attended. The food and wine was the savior... I understand Saturday nights are to be expected to be busy, and we will be back. However it was just disappointing that such a great place had less than great service that night. "
