“Remember the Hard Rock!” While we've never been under siege like Davy Crockett and his men at the Alamo, we at the Hard Rock Cafe San Antonio always strive to be memorable here in Texas. Situated along the city's famous River Walk, the number one tourist destination in Texas, our San Antonio cafe has three floors of patios where you can relax and enjoy the great Texas weather and picturesque views of the San Antonio River with its slow-moving tourist boats. While our outdoor patio certainly offers one of the best spots to dine on the River Walk, inside our cafe is an attraction all its own. Be sure to bring a Texas-sized appetite, as we offer gourmet meals in hefty servings – so huge you can cut 'em with a Bowie knife. Our stylish San Antonio You’ll dine surrounded by a collection of music memorabilia that is big enough to fill a Spanish mission.

It was my birthday and out lovely waiter Oscar greeted us so perfectly. Gave us time to look at the menu and didnt rush anything. All the employees are so energetic. Once you walk in it feels like your at a Music Festival. Music is loud enough to make you dance while you eat! After Dinner the Manager gave my a Birthday Card signed by all of the employees working there. I would definitely come back to this location soon!

I understand that this is a Texas location, but did almost everything on the walls have to have a cowboy hat? It didn’t represent all of Rock n Roll in Texas.

Excellent experience. I made a reservation for my wife’s birthday. The managers gave us a complimentary dessert (that my wife picked) and the staff signed her a birthday card which we found very thoughtful. The food was great!! 100% recommend nachos, burgers and their fudge chocolate brownie (it is huge). We will be going back!!

The food was only surpassed by the extraordinary service delivered personally by the server and general manager.

We went for Brunch with the Easter Bunny and it was wonderful. It wasn’t super busy so it was really nice being able to move around and not wait for service. The bunny was really great, great with kids, and not at all creepy like some of them can be. Our son who never gives anyone but me a high five gave one to the bunny. They really tried to take care of the kids and make sure the adults enjoyed themselves too. We also loved being able to sit out on the patio overlooking the river. We recently moved to San Antonio from Chicago, so the nice weather and patio dining was a welcome change to the cold weather that Chicago still has another month or so of. Definitely recommend for Easter and we’ll be back next year!

I made a reservation for Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. Online it said that kids 2 & under were free. When I received my bill for myself and my daughter (who just turned 2 on 3/31) I was charged for her meal $12.95. It was a nice experience but I won’t be back based on this.

We came here on vacation and the food was very good. My husband said the ribs were the best he’s ever had in his life. One caveat, I would not recommend the Cobb salad unless you like kale. I didn’t like it at all.

it is always reassuring when a brand name, such as Hard Rock Café, maintains its level of excellence- which was the case in San Antonio. Although they had a small problem in honoring our reservation, it was quickly resolved. The food was quite tasty with excellent presentation. The ribs, salmon and flatbread were exceptional. Our desert, cheesecake, was rich, decadent and quite 'yummy.' Our wait-person, Jen, was exceptional, personable and quite the ambassador for the restaurant. All in all a great experience.

I enjoy Hard Rock cafe. This was our daughter's 16th birthday party request (we had 10 teenagers). I think the waitress did a phenomenal job considering they sat us alongside two other large parties and I watched her take care of about 90% of everything on her own. She ran her a$$ off! That said, we needed to exercise patience a few times, which we were happy to do as we literally watched beads of sweat accumulate on this poor girl's forehead. The place was loud and bustling, which is also expected for a Saturday night on the Riverwalk. The food is what you would expect from a place like this. All in all, we had a good experience and will certainly be back. My daughter enjoys this place.

Reserving with Open Table was great. The hostess and our waitress were great as well. Was expecting more from a meal that set this middle class family back 80 bucks though.

The flatbread appetizer was delicious, but my husband’s $18 impossible burger was messy and had old lettuce in it. The patty was great, but he had soggy bread and one piece of old lettuce.

Kid’s liked their shakes and pizza, but I asked for no seasoning on the broccoli and it ended up being too spicy for them due to too much pepper.

On the positive, we sat outside and had the “Riverwalk experience.”
