“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.

Went with my family...party of 9. So glad we used OpenTable to make a reservation 30 minutes before we left the house. When we go their the wait was over an hour.
Everyone had burgers and they were delicious!!!!

I’ve been to the one in NY and was expecting the fun show type atmosphere. This one seemed a loud, overpriced pub/bar type place. Not the fun celebration of music like I experienced before.

Not on a festive day like valentines weekend, it was a long wait and my steak was not to order and it was a bit pricey for what I paid I expected my steak to be cooked to my liking!

I had a reservation for 6:15pm but they didn’t seat us until 6:30pm. What’s the point of a reservation if you have to wait?

We booked here because it was Valentine’s Day and we knew every restaurant would be slammed. Our booking time was 6:30. We waited about 20 minutes and then stood at the hostess stand so we wouldn’t be forgotten. We were sat around 7:00.
We both had the cob salads. They were not very good. The cauliflower buffalo wings were pretty good though. Hard Rock is not a place I would return to eat.

Restaurant was a lot of fun and food was good. However our waitress dropped an entire tray of drinks on my husband and myself. One hitting my husband in the back of the head. Glass crashing down, soaking wet. It was cleaned up and we moved down to another table. However a manager NEVER came by to check, apologize, or even offer anything. In addition, a wet floor sign was not put up either leaving risk for other diners.

My boyfriend and I visited for a date during PAX South and the food was fantastic. We were one table from the river and the outdoor seating was great. The best burger I've ever had. We definitely understand the hype behind this restaurant.

Another tourist trap. Mediocre food, way overpriced, too loud to talk, terrible service. But, I did get to teach my nine year old daughter about good music.

We are eternally grateful for Hard Rock for accommodating our big group and welcoming us graciously when we were late. We had to make three different reservations in order to make our big group work and it miraculously worked out. This was our team dinner for the gymnastics team and it was perfect with the tables and stage. The staff were friendly, professional, patient and efficient. We will definitely be back when our team competes in San Antonio! Thank you thank you!

Hostess acted like she was high and let us follow her around the dining room to a table right next to the hostess station. My seat was soaking wet. The waitress was over worked and not familiar with the menu. The food took forever but was good. We asked for chocolate ice cream for dessert and the waitress said they did not serve chocolate ice cream. We said your menu says you have chocolate and vanilla ice cream and then she checked the menu. I guess to see if we were telling the truth. My brother was in from out of town. Not a good experience and embarrassing. Plus the bathroom was filthy.

Server was rude, got everyone’s order incorrect, and then acted mad at us for asking for a new server. She gave attitude to my mother and was short with everyone at the table. Food came out wrong and we waited atleast 45 min for drink refills. The restaurant wasn’t busy and it was supposed to be our Christmas Dinner. Terrible experience overall and a huge disappointment for our holiday vacation.

Made a reservation for 8pm, checked in early and told it’ll be an hour to two hours with 12 guests ahead of me. Wasn’t done eating until after 10 pm and they were still behind. Totally surprised as why be able to make a reservation if can’t get in anywhere near that time? I suggest reducing the amount of available reservations on holiday weeks so it’s only walk up service as we would have found a place to eat prior to returning to the Riverwalk area from Sea World had we known how overcrowded it was on Christmas Eve. Even McDonalds had to have someone at the door controlling the amount of guests at 9 pm. Not sure why Christmas Eve was so busy but all restaurants were unprepared for the hotels to be sold out even with the holiday and Alamobowl game. Our waiter however, was awesome and he was very friendly and patient despite the overwhelming and sometimes rude crowd!! Good job to him!!

Although we had a reservation for 7:30, we were not seated until 8:45 despite arriving at 7:05. We were advised that we could “stand at the bar and elbow people and tell them to move” if we wanted to be seated earlier.
