Very nice variety of food to choose from. There were several menu items that we each could easily have chosen and been happy with. My husband got a chicken dish that was quite gristly. He told the waitress and they allowed him to pick a different meal without charging for both. The restaurant was very busy as it was two... More

Good location, it was chilly, but were given a poncho/blanket which helped quite a bit. Food was pretty good. Price was slightly higher than normal, but you're right on the River Walk.

Our table was just inside but with a great view of the Riverwalk, it was a bit chilly outside this evening. Our waitstaff was friendly and helpful. Our enchiladas were very good, also great salsa. Good music with live musicians added to the atmosphere. Had a great time with our son here.

The food itself was ok, I had the Texas catfish.... it was HUGE, but the flavor was just ok. The service was ok until the end when the waiter wasn't happy with a 15% tip and went on a rant as I why his tip was so low. The food was ok for the price but the waiter ruined the... More

Ate here because the wait was shorter then in other places, glad we did, Had excellent service, with only 1 small snafu - waiter never got our appy order to kitchen. Turned out OK, because the main courses were so huge, we barely finished them! Wife had the Fiesta Chicken sandwich - she says it was the best chic breast... More

Republic of Texas is in a prime spot on the Riverwalk. They have indoor and outdoor dining with views of the river. Friendly wait staff, good margaritas, and great atmosphere.

We were planning to eat dinner there. It was happy hour so we ordered beer and guacamole. Waitress brought the wrong beer. Then the wrong appetizer. We got to keep the wrong appetizer and got the guacamole. Both were bad. The beer wasn't that good either. We were afraid to order dinner because the appetizers had been so bad. So... More

Stopped in on a busy Saturday night. Got a good seat for people watching by one of the open doors. The beer was a good as well as the steak. A neat old building.
