Excellent for a special occasion.

This was for my mother's birthday.

She started with the Grilled French Oysters and I had the Tuna Sashimi
we both had Steak fillets they were a minute late with the sauce and gave it to us for free
two sides Portabello mushrooms addictive
shared a chocholate mouse cake

Only problem was the acoustics in the room with 2 large obnoxious groups, this was Nov 20th so you know who you are.

I have been to Bohanan’s a few times, for both lunch and dinner. It never disappoints. It is certainly pricey, but well worth the money. The service is supreme— no place in town does service better (though Supper is also fantastic, which makes sense because several of their servers also work at Bohanan’s). They get all the details right— never reach across you, bring fresh utensils, etc. but (and this is key) their service is not stuffy in the least. They are congenial and welcoming, and I never feel pressure to overspend. I also love the decor here— as beautiful as the new modern industrial look is, Bohanan’s is outfitted with soft materials that contain the noise level.
On my most recent visit, I had one of the red snapper dishes, which was superb, and my dad had the crabcakes, which were hand down the best crabcakes I’ve ever had. The crab really shines, and Bohanan’s keeps the binding and fillers to an absolute minimum. We shared a salad, and that was it. It was more than enough food for us, and a nice departure from the steak I usually order here.

We had a memorable experience at Bohanan's. We were there celebrating my SON'S 30th. Birthday. The Food, The Service and Ambiance was INCREDIBLE. I would recommend Bohanan's to anyone that wants to see how a REAL STEAK HOUSE is done. The bar and the cocktails were top notch too.

My husband and I went to Bohanan’s for dinner while visiting San Antonio for our anniversary. We absolutely loved it! Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and the food was exceptional! It is very upscale and very well worth the trip!

Whether you come for the fantastic food or the great and personal service, Bohanon's has it all. My wife and I have traveled to this restaurant from San Marcos twice now to enjoy the menu as well as the handcrafted cocktails in their bar on the first floor. When we come to Bohanon's, we enjoy the total experience that it has to offer.

Have eaten at Bohanans many times. Consistently good food, outstanding service and great ambiance . An added bonus is valet parking on Majestic show nights that lasts until after curtain time. We’ll go back as long as they’re in business.

ORDER A STEAK! I ordered the fish tacos because a friend recommended them. When they came (lunch order), there were 2 and they may have been the smallest fish tacos I've ever seen. The quality was ok. The price was more reasonable than I expected for lunch at Bohanon's (I realize this is a STEAK place...), but I would recommend charging a bit more and increasing the portion size. My friend who recommended them said the last time he'd ordered them, they had not been so undersized. Their house made potato chips were greasy, but delicious. If I go back, I will have to give the steaks a chance.

Finally, after many months of if it could go wrong it did, closed the deal on selling our house and took our realtor and his wife out to dinner. Even though they were long time residents of San Antonio, they'd heard of, but never been to Bohanan's before. It was as great an evening as it could have been. I'm sure Bohanan's now has two more customers to add to their growing list of satisfied customers. Wonderful meal, wonderful staff, wonderful experience.

We were greeted by name and were initially served their signature candied jalapeños over cream cheese, then ordered their version of candied bacon both of these were amazing! Then we ordered the 12 oz Ribeye each-both perfectly cooked to order! My husband added the lobster tail and I️ added the Lump crab Oscar—again, great flavor! Our sides we ordered included the creamy Mac and cheese (they forgot our bacon option, but still good), roasted garlic mashed potatoes (my husband enjoyed these), and the sautéed portabello mushrooms (which were phenomenal!)! Then the dessert, we ordered the creme brûlée and the pecan pie-they were so good without being overly sweet! Seriously-best date night we have had! We were celebrating our 1st anniversary and they also gave us each a glass of mascato on the House!

I have dined in numerous steakhouses and without a doubt, Bohannan's IS THE VERY BEST. The top notch service cannot be bested by any other establishment. The rib-eye I ate was juicy, thick, and the most tender I have ever eaten (and I have devoured many a rib-eye). I can give Bohannan's 100 compliments, it would not be enough.

Our meals were very good. The heirloom tomato caprese salad was awesome. The heirloom tomatoes hit their mark. My wife’s red snapper royale was delicious. It had chunk crab meat and scallops which topped off her meal and she was kind enough to share a bit of it with me. My 120z. ribeye was very good and cooked to my liking but it didn’t impress me like the rest of the meal did.

Our waiter Jim was very accommodating.

I wasn't terribly impressed with the steaks, given that's their specialty. For a $95 rib eye it better be incredible. It was tough. The flavor was good, not great. Appetizer choices were a bit lackluster as well.

Went there for our 30th anniversary celebration. They made us feel very special with each person welcoming us and congratulating us on our anniversary (which was a nice touch). The food was very good. I had a medium rare filet that was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. The perfect pairing was the sautéed portobello mushrooms (just do it)! The creamy Mac-n-cheese was a favorite for my wife.

We plan on visiting again! Soon!
