Wonderful staff and excellent service. You can not beat the location on the Riverwalk and the campy attitude. Amber's Service was excellent. Margaritas were less expensive than we expected, food was about average but the combo of all three will bring us back again. As a matter of fact we were back yesterday for Tuesday Karoke. We will definitely return... More

Such friendly and rapid service! Great view of river walk and nice ambiance. Food was mediocre. Fries were not fresh. Side of veggies not fresh (frozen). I wanted to like this more due to the great service, but not impressed with food quality.

We had a super time during the River Parade. The food and service were great, plan on doing it again in the future.

Service was good, but the BBQ was nothing to right home about the Cole slaw was bland & the brisket was dry.

We stopped here for breakfast before heading to the Alamodome for the Notre Dame/Army football game. It was around 10am or so, and there were a decent amount of people there but nothing overwhelming. We got our drinks and ordered quickly but then we had the longest wait for breakfast food I have ever had. I was beginning to question... More

I ordered beef brisket-n-sausage combo and a draft beer. The combo is $18.99 and not worth $9.99. The combo was a platter with 2 "thin" slices of beef brisket with a few teaspoons of BBQ sauce, 3 small slices of sausage, potato salad, baked beans, and coleslaw. The sides were good but I was not happy with the meat portion,... More

Average food quality. Poorly staffed for a busy Monday evening. Chicken fried steak was mostly the batter.

A restaurant voor burger of sandwich. Good but nothing special. Service is good. We had pulled pork and the chili burger. Pulled pork a little dry but not bad. Chiliburger was good. Temperature of the food a bit lukewarm. Since they have big fans blowing at your table, this means the food getal cold fast. Some work to do in... More

This is the 2nd time we have eaten here and I must say there are better places on the River Walk but for the money and the crowds, this is a pretty good alternative. Their steaks are good quality and the seafood is also quite good. If you are there on a weekend and everything is packed, give them a... More

It took forever for our server to show, and then another long wait for our food and drink. The nachos and margarita were great. But I think it took almost two hours to have an afternoon snack!
