“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.

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!

The service here was incredible. Our server was very helpful with menu items and came in to see how everything was. We never had to ask for refills. The manager came to the tables to see how everyone was doing. Food is definitely worth the price.

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.

We missed our reservation due to parking and being from out of town. The hostess understand and still got us in as soon as a table was open. There were 7 of us and we didnt think she'd do it being a busy Saturday night on the riverwalk, but she did. Our server was awesome, we had a great time

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.”

We have to check in with the hostess twice. Apparently she didn’t hear me say I preferred a booth when asked because the lady that went to seat us seem a little put out when she took us to a table and I requested a booth. You were out of the purée needed to make the drink I requested so I had to order something different and I’m guessing the waitress didn’t hear me ask for water when we ordered our drinks cause I had to ask a few times. my husband had to eat his burger with a fork because it wasn’t put together very well. My burger just tasted plain I ended up having to drown in it ketchup to be able to finish it. The thing is this was suppose to be our visit to give you a second chance but our experience was worse this time and gift card or no gift card I don’t care to return.

Too many birds and duck dive bombing over and service seemed to be off. Received dirty plates without appetizers, no straw for cocktails and no spoons with desserts. We eat at hard rocks worldwide so we will leave it at an off day for them. Disappointing since it was St. Patrick’s Day and they were on the riverwalk.

Server was not polite and did not return to provide refills or check the table often. We went without drinks for over 20 minutes. Food was alright, at best. The appetizer I ordered took the longest to come out, and was incorrect so it was sent back along with a burger my daughter ordered. We got the appetizer back, but didn't get the burger back until the end of the meal. I blame the lack of attention on the server's part. We asked for drinks to go and the server tossed them onto the table at us. We spoke with the manager and he took care of us. He was the best part of the visit. I would go back just because he assured us he would take care of the problem!

While sitting outside for atmospheric purposes SOUNDS fun, it’s not. We had a table on the very edge of the patio, and having people walking down the Riverwalk constantly passing your table while you’re eating & bumping your chair, is rather annoying. Service was awesome though - I’d just suggest sitting inside...

Our appetizer included chicken strips and when my fiancé bit into it he said he almost felt like he cracked his tooth on a big chunk of bone. Then after the server charged us for our meal, I looked at the receipt and was charged for two drinks when I received water. My fiancé got an ice tea. Overcharged and server really didn’t care.
