Drew's American Grill
FabulousMother's day brunch at Drew's was fabulous. Along with all the usual breakfast items, Eggs Benedict, lox & bagels, pancakes, etc. Drew prepared the most incredible beef with broccoli-rabe I have ever eaten. The beef was fork tender, but with a flavor that was out of this world. A juicy, flavorful roast pork with seasoned mashed potatoes was a close runner up. While my tablemates enjoyed the oysters on the half shell and the boiled shrimp I had to have a second helping of the roast beef, this time without the horseradish sauce. The horseradish sauce was delicious, but the beef was so flavorful you didn't need it.
Desserts were fun cupcakes and marvelous sugar cookies. My cupcake was a fun rip of a PB&J.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal and waiter serviceWe only had an hour to eat dinner before heading to Live and Let Die at the Laurie but decided to see if we could squeeze in Drew's. Our waiter, Austin, said no problem -- he brought our wine within 5 minutes (at a bargain only 2X markup compared to other restaurants), took our order, and we even had time left over for dessert. For entrées we had salmon and escolar, both cooked and seasoned to perfection, with attractive presentations -- 7 perfectly sized asparagus with the salmon, just the right amount of green beans with the escolar. We split a Caesar salad and I also had anchovies on the side -- no problem.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Drew'sExtensive selection on the menu - from beef to fish as well as burgers and pizza. We settled for the Catch of the Day - was cooked to perfection. Our waiter, Jeff was totally accommodating when we asked to substitute a side. Excellent wine list - we were there on a Friday night and the restaurant was about half full (Fiesta Week in San Antonio). Will definitely make a return trip!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the food to the service,From the food to the service, we found Drew's to be a lovely dining experience.
We ate on the outdoor patio which was surprisingly quiet for where it was located. The only negative about eating outside is that smoking is allowed on the patio and unfortunately we were downwind from the cigars.
The foods we enjoyed most were the prime rib special, the rachel with turkey, the reuben and the steak with broccolin. Everyone reported their meal was delicious! Hector, our server was very attentive and helpful in making recommendations. We will definitely return to try more dishes.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMade the reservation and arrivedMade the reservation and arrived in 15 minutes and they were ready for us.

We really enjoyed our dining experience at this new (to us) restaurant. Just a little noise, but we were still able to have a conversation. We would recommend Drew's American Grill to our friends.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time at Drew's andSecond time at Drew's and enjoyed it! Very quiet, and relaxing evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
