From LA and was excited to see Pat O's. Was not disappointed. Have to try the sampler if you're not sure what you in the mood for. Had a great time with the waiter and later in the piano bar.

This is fashioned after the Pat O'Brien's in New Orleans. The food is good and the drinks are better:). It is just off of the Riverwalk and has live music in the evenings.

I'm sure in its day this place was a cool spot and I'd love to see the owners put some money into fixing / cleaning the place up. Just outside the river walk, Pat O'Brien's has the potential to be great again. A good entertainment/band and dance spot. The food and drinks are suspect: I literally watched the ceiling above...

We went to Pat O'brien's twice while on vacation in San Antonio. If you want a good, strong drink the Hurricane is your choice. We also got the drink sampler, which was fun but not a great deal. There were 4 of us, and each glass had enough in it for a small sip each. Would have been better if... More

We love going to Pat O'Briens. Every time we come to San Antonio this is a definite spot. The crawfish nachos are a MUST have.

We came to this place to get out of the heat and get a few cool drinks. It's not a huge place but it was definitely fun. They had a wide selection of alcohol drinks and we took turns sampling each others drinks. They also had a live bank that was playing oldies. Before we knew it we had spend... More

The enclosed patio/dining area is secluded from the activity on the street and they played great music. The food was a bit spicy, not Irish like I expected from the name of the restaurant. It was good though. Our service was not great since the waitress didn't seem too friendly or interested in her customers. There are help wanted signs... More

The food was good but not as good as the restaurant in New Orleans. Prices with in local rates. Friendly staff. We had wings, jambalaya and a chicken sandwich. Plenty of food. I would return. Needs a good cleaning.
