Early Sunday evening visit. Food was mediocre. Music was only loud. Musicians were less than adequate this round. Disappointing visit.

Staff at Pat O'Brien's are friendly, which makes me wish I could post a better review. Gumbo was thin, served over undercooked rice. The caesar salad was tasty, though it would have been nice to have bread with it rather than packaged crackers. There are no draft beers. They have a nice range of drinks and offer a really cute...

This is a great place to hang out with friends and have some drinks. Food is good also. Great music either out on patio or in piano bar. It's good time all around. Funnest place we visited while here. Tree was a great waitress.

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
