Wonderful views of the River walk in the evening, the staff were very good, and the steaks were cooked to perfection. It was by far the most expensive meal we had on the river walk, but you have to treat yourself sometimes.

This is a steak house. There is a chicken dish on the menu, but most of the menu offerings are beef. Good beef. We ordered a beef filet and a "fall special." The fall special was a 4 oz beef filet and a lobster tail....More

My wife and I had the best and most tender steaks we have ever had - topped with their wonderful Bordelaise sauce. Our adult daughter loved the Scottish salmon with crab meat. The au gratin potatoes were good, but the steak was the star. Deserts...More

We ate indoors since it was very very hot outside. The place is upscale compared to other restaurants on the River Walk with real table cloths and cloth napkins. The steaks were excellent, the salads were ok and the baked potato was very good. Typical...More

The Little Rhein Steak House is housed in the Bombach House in historic La Villita. The Coahuiltecan Indians founded a settlement here in the 1500s, and in the early 18th century Spanish soldiers and Canary Islanders established a village on the site. The Mexican General Santa Anna encamped here during the battle of the Alamo. During the 19th century, German immigrants designated this area as the Little Rhein district, hence the name Little Rhein Steak House. In 1847, Otto Bombach, a carpenter, built the first two-story structure here for his family. The Bombach House was thereafter utilized as an early Texas home, a boarding house, a grocery store and bar, a private school, and a hangout for desperados. Old photos, posters, beverage trays and other San Antonio collectibles adorn the limestone walls of the Main Dining Room. Antique accents including brass lights from the Federal Courthouse and wooden benches from the Katy Train Depot help to create a comfortable rustic atmosphere
