Our home away from home. Been going here for years and there are other similar style steak houses in San Antonio. It has a family feel and we have an autistic grandson, and they are always accommodating for our needs. The rolls are hands down the best yeast smelling and flavored rolls I have ever had! I love the ribeye... More

The Barn Door has been a celebration place all of my life!! It was getting a bit tired & dark by today's standards. We revisited on a Thursday evening and chose to sit in the bar to watch the basketball semifinals. Our steaks were outstanding!! So was everything else--& especially the attentive service. We are planning more routine "celebration" visits... More

Food was of excellent quality and so was the service. Old-style ranch decor I suppose. Apparently a big hit with locals. Try the queso sirloin. Plenty of parking. Accessible to much of the city in mere minutes.

This place is wonderful. Steaks so juicy and tender you could cut them with a butter knife. Dinner rolls that melt in your... More

Truly delightful! Our waiter was exactly attentive. My half sweet/unsweet tea was never questioned and always full. The ladies cut Steak sliced beautifully and tasted wonderful(first time I've never asked for Heinz 57 sauce). The creamed spinach was amazing and my baked potato was perfect. I am so happy my husband heard of this restaurant on the Golf Channel. Turned... More

Looked for a local non chain steak house - finally found it. Staff was friendly, steak was huge and delicious - as was everything we ordered! Popovers with butter and jam, green salads, stuffed, fried jalapeños, and twice baked potatoes. Oh right - apple pie and peach cobbler!

Food was prefect. Steaks cooked to perfection. Waitstaff very attentive. Went to the bar, well that's where they need training. Ordered a beer and asked for a cold mug, handed me the can and the mug. Went back for a second, they never even look at bar guest until they finish server orders. Need real bartenders, not drink mixers.

The Barn Door is a very local steakhouse with a take out meat market. The steaks are on display and are very good. Huge portions. Start out the friend mushrooms. Meals come with soup or salad, main course and a potato. Try the hone fried potatoes with onions. 10 minute drive from central San Antonio.

Came to the barn door on vacation with a large group of family. The service was very good. The building/setup was nice. I ordered a New York Strip, which, for whatever reason was the best I've ever had!

It had been a while since we had a chance to come back - and wow - NOW we remember what we loved about this place! We had the Chateau Briand for two, along with mashed potatoes and mac 'n cheese.....we were in heaven! The steak was PERFECTLY cooked, and MORE than enough for us! The sides were delicious -...
