“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 are from out of town and wanted to explore the riverwalk with our friends. We made reservation at hard rock cafe and was seated right away on a busy night. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable and made our experience memorable.

Started off by being seated then had 1 waitress take drink orders, drinks came out and were to strong. Had to drink some and add water to dilute it some.

Ordered dinner (with second waitress) wife had a beet salad that she said was good and I ordered chicken tenders and fries. No silverware or napkins on the table asked and it was received, no salt or pepper to alter the taste of the food because there was absolutely no flavor to it whatsoever to no avail. Has to drown the chicken and fries in the little bit of ketchup that was in the bottle they gave me.

NOPE! Will not go back.

We had breakfast at the Hard Rock Cafe on the Riverwalk. Service was great, food was good, but we didn't have the live music outdoors as the guitar player was inside.

Server was attentive, but not overly so, his name was Brandon. The bar was busy, so the drinks took a little longer, but gave us a heads up, so it was fine. This is a more low key Hard Rock, than other one’s we’ve been too as far as being decked out wall to wall with memorabilia, but it was fine. The noise got to be a bit much as the night went on, but this is to be expected on a Friday night at Hard Rock

The local legendary burger is like a taco with great seasonings, toppings, guacamole sauce and crunchy tortilla chips. I always try the local legendary burger when I go to a new Hard Rock Cafe, and I thought this was the best one. Great stuff.

It has changed SOOOO much in the past few years... There is certainly NOT a huge selection. I understand inflation but for the price the food seems to have deflated!!! Granted we were a little indecisive because we were there with our kids and unsure of what to get but instead of suggesting things, our server seemed annoyed that we might have took a little longer... we will NEVER go back again and to think it was a part of my husband and I first dates... So disappointed!

We were place upstairs by the kitchen. There were only 2 sets of utensils and 4 of at the table. We were brought the appetizer before we had the utensils, drinks, and plates. The food came out and the burger was over cooked, the chicken was raw. They were out of onion rings. Our server had been working 10 hours and had 3 to go. We have dined at almost all the restaurants on the Riverwalk and this was by far the worst.

The food was ok and the atmosphere was nice. We sat on the balcony looking over the river. The service was extremely slow though.. it took nearly 2 hours from the time we sat down to the time I signed the check.

I took a group of teenagers. Well behaved group. There were five of them and me. I guess the server assumed she wasn’t getting a good tip. The service was horrible. We didn’t see her from the time we ordered until it was time to pay. The food was decent but not great. Not good enough to make up for the service. Music was good and it was clean.

We were a group of 5 high school students and a teacher celebrating a competition. We felt like we were someplace unique and special for San Antonio. We love the combo FBLA/Hard Rock Merchandise. Hard Rock gave us a great booth to enjoy the fun of the restaurant and still be able to talk. Our food was great - the burgers and the salmon were delicious. Our server was attentive and everything came out as ordered - special requests and all. Thanks Hard Rock!

We showed up at 10:40 and the hostess said she wouldn’t seat us until 11:00 when they start serving lunch because they were still serving breakfast so our large group had to stand in the lobby until 11:00. They only had 4 groups eating breakfast in the entire place. I would have left but the kids wanted to eat there. Poor, poor, poor customer service. The food took one hour to come. The waiter wouldn’t refill our waters without us getting his attention. Will not be back.

Service was terrible. Our waitress disappeared after taking the food order, once the drinks from the bar were dropped off it's like she ran away. No straws were given, so the thick milkshake like mixed drink sat and melted while we waited. We finally just got up and went to find another server. Salad came out with no dressing, fries were for sure frozen French fries as they were not cooked all the way and frozen on the inside. Manager came to the table and took a repeat drink order..... which he got absurdly wrong. I ordered a mixed cocktail, he brought me a beer. My husband ordered a beer and he brought him a milkshake.... like, what? Even if he had mixed my husband and I up, he ordered a Dos XX and a dark beer came out. I'm not sure what was going on, but service was just plain horrible, the food was subpar at best. The ambiance is cool because it's hard Rock but sincerely just save your money.

All in all we had a really good time. It was my SO's first time to ever dine at the Hard Rock and our waitress was good however he felt a little rushed. My SO wanted to order an appetizer and felt like he didn't get a chance. We also were not offer a dessert. The food was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. The staff was very hospitable and friendly we were even seated early for our reservation at 7. I would 100% recommend all of my friends and family to stop by and visit the Hard Rock. Just make sure the wait staff is feeling out tables and offering each course.
