“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.

The street level was closed, so I only got to see the River Walk level. It was very small, with little music memorabilia compared to other Hard Rocks I've been to. The service wasn't great, and the food was mediocre at best. I expected better for the price.

The wait was long, even with a reservation. However, we waited 45 minutes while others were waiting 2 hours. Once seated, service was speedy and food good.

I love to go to HRC, have been in many all over the world.
Sadly I have to say, that the service we got in San Antonio, was very bad. I think our server was Kenny. Not only had other server, had to take over drinks order but also give us sharing plates. The manager check on us, more about the food was good.
As we wanted to pay, we was waiting 10 minutes before Kenny pick up our check a other 10 minutes before we got it back. HRC was not busy that night 02/12
Yes I will return to HRC , it is just the place I love

They did not tell me that the restaurant was under construction. While the riverwalk part of the place was open the inside area was not decorated in their usual way. All of this could have been overlooked since the food was good but when we arrived, the person taking our name and seating us didn't act like they knew what she was doing. Later the manager I talked to said it was her first day. The end result was that they told OpenTable that we never showed up. We spent almost $100 for the 2 meals they said we didn't show up for. When I got a message from OpenTable that I didn't show up, I called the restaurant and talked to what they told me was a manager. They assured me that they would immediately notify OpenTable and correct the matter. Apparently OpenTable hasn't corrected the mistake yet.

In addition, I do not appreciate OpenTable lecturing me in an email about not showing up. The restaurants should be held responsible too. I have been with OpenTable for almost 10 years and have never missed or not showed up for my reservations. The same can't be said for the times that restaurants have lost my reservation until I showed them the confirmation and the multiple times I have been made to wait beyond my reservation time as they seated walk ins.

Unfortunately, the restaurant is undergoing remodeling so the displays were practically nonexistent, the general decor/furniture was very basic and looked sparse and cheap, and the menu had minimal choices compared to the past. This was my niece's first time at a Hard Rock so we were disappointed. The Hard Rock experience just wasn't there.

Overall the food and service were fantastic. The restaurant was quiet at the time of our visit which was nice since we were there for a team luncheon for work so we were actually able to hear one another. The only negative I would say would be that the host that greeted most of us when we arrived was not that friendly and to some appeared rude. It had been a number of years since I had been there, but after this event I will definitely return.

We were very disappointed. Although we had made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner, it seemed they were seating people first come first served from the Riverwalk, street level, and with or without reservations. The whole restaurant is under renovation, so it had an overall feel of a construction site. Downstairs, there is no decor on the walls, just drywall in various stages of being finished. It took about 5 minutes for a server to acknowledge our presence and another few minutes to order a drink. The server then told us they were out of vegetables and only had potatoes--mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, or french fries to go with the turkey dinner. For $26.95/person for the Thanksgiving special (which would have been turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and more potatoes), and even more for a steak dinner, it seemed ridiculous that there were so few side choices. There were smashed french fries all over the floor around out table (although there were no little kids there at the time). We decided to go somewhere else for dinner.

Surprisingly excellent service on Thanksgiving Day. Expected large crowds and controlled chaos but waiter was attentive with a positive attitude. Salmon was excellent, cooked perfectly. Dessert-ridiculously large and scrumptious. Well done Hard Rock!

Music was too loud.
At first, they couldn’t find our reservation. Eventually after 3 people looked for it, it was found hidden somewhere among other reservations.
