This is the joint your mama warned you about. Dick’s serves up buckets of barbecued ribs, chicken, catfish, shrimp and crab legs. Platters include steaks, crabby cakes, salmon, chicken and even salads for the wimpy eater. Lunch includes sandwiches, salads and buckets of good food. The wait staff is irreverent by design, and the decor is local garage-sale stuff. Seventy-four kinds of beer. Live music, no cover, no dress code and definitely no class. Billed as "The Rowdy of the River..
Fronted by an exceptional view of the water, there's patio seating year 'round. Come see why Dick's has been River Walk legend since the craziness began in 1987!

Sat at our table for 20 minutes without any drinks or food being ordered. Never had one waiter or waitress stop at the table so we walked out and went elsewhere.

I would recommend Dick’s last resort for the service and the laughs but not for the food. The food was not seasoned very well and my friend’s food was burnt. Our waiter was hilarious and loved his job!

It’s filthy!!! The new spot on the riverwalk feels soooo much smaller. First time I’ve EVER had to pay for water in the states. Yes it’s bottled but I’ve never in a sit down restaurant. Stefanie gave as good as our family gave, yet eating utensils should never have to be demanded. If I wanted to eat with my hands I’d go to midevil times. The new restaurant is not handicap friendly and if you have to go to the bathroom you have to go upstairs to use it. We go to Dicks Last resort every time but I won’t go back to this one.

We have been here before and knew what to expect but this time was different. It started with the hostess dropping five or six “F” bombs when we were trying to decide if we wanted to sit inside or out. We decided to go upstairs and eat. It was 8:00pm on a Friday night and all they had left on the menu was catfish (not good and tasted like rubber) and ribs. The ribs were pretty good. They ran out of everything else. Also the waiters and waitresses had both worked double shifts and all they talked about to each other was how tired they were and that they didn’t want to be there to clean up at closing. They ended up spending the last 30 mins trying to talk one of the bus boys into cleaning up all the paper off the floor for $20. Overall it was not a good exprence.

I’ve seen many people go to Dicks and have a great time with lots of laughter from the paper hats. This was my first time going after years of wanting to go and I was highly disappointed. Myself nor my table received any paper hat. So I asked our waiter for them he said he didn’t have time because his shift was ending and had to leave to another job he had. I left very upset, the whole experience of me going was disappointing.

I have read some negative comments about this place and had a degree of trepidation in booking this reservation. They absolutely nailed a great idea and concept. If you are supersensitive go somewhere else. The staff were exceptional and the ambience was a lot of fun.

Our waiter was nice, but all of the staff seemed like they were tired of playing their roles. He forgot our drinks a few times. Also, my daughter was supposed to get corn tortillas because she is allergic to wheat. They seemed like flour. I asked him to double check, he said it was corn, but she got super sick. The food was pretty terrible. I didn't expect a lot, but it was borderline inedible. My kids didn't even eat their meals and they normally love the food they ordered. Such a waste of $200.

Chicken fried steak was way over cooked and the crab legs were not very big. Looked more like over grown crawfish. The food just doesn’t match the the price they charge. Ive has better chicken fried steak at Crackerbarrel. Probably won’t go back when I’m San Antonio.

I think that it’s a funny, lively environment, and it’s a funny twist on service. Definitely not for everyone, you have to have a good sense of humor and not take anything they say seriously.

Our experience at Dick's was outstanding. Our server (Mike) Fox was awesome and gave us a great experience, even with our kids. He was sarcastic and hilarious and didn't just go through the motions. It's clear he enjoys his job and really had fun with us. Our food was equally great and I would definitely recommend it for the experience and the value. I will definitely be back next time I am in San Antonio!

No entendí su concepto de entrar a un restaurante cuya apariencia es que está MUY SUCIO, es un desperdicio de papeles tirados, pero además hay servilletas sucias y lo primero que uno piensa es que la cocina está igual de puerca. El papel del mesero es tratarte mal y gritarte. La verdad es todos los de la mesa nos sentimos muy incómodo, así que nos levantamos y nos fuimos

Not what I was expecting, I understand they have to be 'rude' or 'sarcastic' but when I ask or order something I expect to get what I want/need. Not my kind of place. Food was blah and overpriced.
