You will need a camera so people will believe you you tall them. Every size, shape, and color of antlers...hundreds or maybe thousands of them. The gift shop is great also. A good range of inexpensive gifts and quite a few "nicer" gifts also.

The food is average bar fare, but the place has lots of character. It’s a must see in SanAntonio. Be sure to linger and take in the surroundings.

I thought this was a history place but it had very little actual history. The museum was filled with animal heads & just touristy stuff. Maybe it would entertain children. The food was average as well.

Enjoyed my visit to The Buckhorn, food was good but the best part was the Ranger Museum. It was very interesting to learn something of the history of the Texas Rangers.

we viewed the "saloon" but decided not to pay to see the museum part. we thought the price too high for what we might see. it seemed sort of run-of-the-mill to us. the staff was friendly.

I was a little disappointed with the museum. It is small but has a lot of information. Lots of animals. The best part was the carnival rooms. I would not have spent the money.

We visited the bar for a drink and some snacks while we were out exploring San Antonio. I never got to see an itemized receipt of what I was charged for the margaritas we order so no idea how much they were. However, two drinks...More
