“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.

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.

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.

not the best place on the river walk to eat, I’m not one to complain so I’m not going to but there are other restaurants on the river walk that top this.

Excellent service. Our reservation was for 6:00 and we arrived at 5:30, and were seated immediately. My only complaint is the parking and I had to pay $25.00 for parking. The restaurant itself was awesome and my burger was cooked to perfection! I will definitely be back.

We had a 7pm reservation for a party of 13 but no room at river level for our party so initially we had to split up however, the manager moved us up stairs and we were all seated together. Art our server was exceptional, as was the food and atmosphere. Only disappointed we could not sit at "river level" as per my reservation but in the end, we had a GREAT time!

We made a reservation for 7 pm on a Saturday night. The river walk was packed as it is prime time for tourists. We got there a little early but the hostess accommodated us and gave us a table outdoor as we had requested. The scenery was beautiful and perfect for viewing the river walk and the Christmas lights. The food was delicious! We had the $20 jumbo appetizer platter to share and a Dos Equis on draft. Our server, Stephen, was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back and recommend to all our friends. Thank you!

Never sat. Early for reservation and host stated they would clean tables to get us seated. 30 minutes later and there were plenty of dirty tables that they were not in a hurry to fill. We left without eating. Reservation was a waste of time.
