“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.

Steak was overcooked, sent it back and it was the same steak but even more overcooked. Server was overworked but was awesome. The cauliflower buffalo wings were the amazing.

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.

Went for my anniversary and loved it! The only reason it was loud was because it was st Patrick’s day weekend and we sat outside.

Server was non-existent. Food taste and quality was average. Not something I’d avoid in the future, but definitely not something I’d seek out, or go out of my way to eat at again.

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...

Made a reservation early in the day and by the time we got there right at our reservation time our table was already ready and I was surprised they didn’t give it away because it was so busy. Food got out fast and it was soooo good! And our waitress was awesome!! Definitely will go back!

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.

Walked in at 8:40 pm and was told that we would have to wait 1 hour and 45 minutes to be seated. I decided to go on open table and booked a reservation at 9 pm. The blue haired host on the top floor was absolutely awful!! When we walked back in, with a reservation booked, she proceeded to tell us we would still have to wait but that we can try to get seated downstairs. So we did go downstairs and at right away. Our server (Joy, I believe) was fantastic!! We really enjoyed her and made sure we tipped her great. We will be back but I really hope that the seating situation is better and that host understands how to do her job correctly

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.

Had a reservation at 8 got there the host said we would have to wait 10-15 min because there was not enough tables so I said that was fine she said I would get a text when our table was ready. I decided to walk down the river and wait for the text. Than 1 hour later no text so I went inside and the host said my reservation was not on the list I showed her my phone and she laughed and said ok I’ll seat you now

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.
