Diner Reviews
  • "Fabulous buffet and attentive service in a fun setting. I am so glad we ate here instead of in the ballroom at the Gaylord."

  • "We were very surprised and not in a good way, that 40.00 was automatically added to our all ready over priced meal. Our waiter brought us water during the end of our meal, then never showed up again. We were ok with that, it was a busy day. But then to receive a 40.00 tip added to our bill, we were not happy. Don't be looking for a return visit from us."

  • "I dined on the patio, with a view of koi carp swimming in an artificial river. Yes, the restaurant is situated on a replica of San Antonio's Riverwalk. Fun. The food was divine. Lots of choices. Good gluten free options, including dessert, as long as one skips dipping pretzels into the chocolate fountain. Staff caring and friendly. A treat."

  • "I ordered fish tacos. These are the ingredients which arrived at my table: flour tortilla with lettuce, tomatoes and fish stick quality fish! I have never had such horrible tacos! Taco Bell would have been much better and I wouldn't say Taco Bell is great."

  • "It was a great experience for my 50th birthday. The scenic view was excellent and I had an excellent service. I will definitely come back to Gaylord Texan."

  • "Dined with 3 teenage girls. Setting was nice, but somewhat disappointed in the food. The chips and salsa were very bland (as other reviewers have commented). Queso fundido was rather hard, difficult to eat. Entrees were good, but not exceptional. We had fish tacos, taco salad, quesadilla and veg combo. I think I just expected better quality from this very nice resort."

  • "This restaurant had prompt and efficient service and typical high-end Tex Mex fare, I had the fajitas with carne asada and it was excellent, one of the best restaurants of this genre that I have had the pleasure enjoy."

  • "Accommodating and service oriented even with a group of 18 (we exceeded our reservation). Huge servings and nice presentation. We all love the custom guacamole station."

  • ""Outdoor" dining indoors. Food was excellent. Freshly made guacamole at your table is a must try. All portions were generous. Food was cheap but beer was expensive! Friendly servers and fast service."

  • "Really just basic generic Mexican food. Not that good for Texas. Plus the cost is so high, you can easily take a taxi to/from grapevine to get much better food."

  • "Service was awful..it was 12 in our party and we had on waiter. He took forever in bringing drinks, and when he did they were wrong. When told he brought the wrong drink he stated that is what the bartender gave him. In no moment did he tried to excuse himself and correct the error. Then when checking our ticket he had charge me more for the drink he stated was the same as the previous one I have had, but the other drink was 4 $ less.. Does not make sense. And still was charged 18 for service.. This was my first time and my last.. Very disappointed !!!"

  • "While the food was just average, the price was not. I was disappointed with the food. However, what the food lacked in flavor, they made up for in excellent customer service. I would not go back on a regular basis, but would not mind going g back if the occasion was right."

  • "WENT ON VALENTINES NIGHT 2014. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE - WAITED FOREVER FOR DRINKS, FOOD ORDER WAS WRONG, NUMEROUS KIDS RUNNING AROUND SCREAMING & HOLLERING. WAS ABOUT AS UNROMANTIC, OVERPRICED, AND HORRIBLE SERVICE AS YOU CAN GET. SAVE YOUR MONEY, TIME, GARAGE PARKING MONEY, AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE."

  • "I blame myself for waiting too long to book for valentines day. The meal at Riverwalkwas only okay. Salad was drowning in dressing which was on the spicy side. Appetizer came out at the same time. Main course was warm at best. Starch had begun to harden on the outside. Steak was cooked past medium. Lot of fat and grizzle. Taste was fine. Dessert was the best part of the meal and was delicious."
