After a concert and nice walk along the river (the weather was absolutely amazing) we stopped here to get some cold beer and an appetizer. Spurs basketball on multiple TV's, family friendly atmosphere and good shrimp, avocado and tomato salsa. YUM

Texas Nachos with brisket were enough for me! Delicious. Happy hour noon to six frozen margarita special pretty tasty and strong. Sliders very good. Service a bit slow but who cares with a terrific relaxing spot on the river. It's vacation time, no rush, no hurried.

We wanted dinner on the river walk before the Spurs game and this place seemed to have good reviews. We were seated outside and the weather was perfect.

I meet friends here all the time for lunch or just a coffee so I can enjoy sitting outside with the gorgeous river, its so pretty and enjoyable. The salads are delicious and pretty big and the waitresses are always very nice. It will continue to be my favorite lunch place!

I hated it but my guests thoroughly enjoyed the chicken and grits. They so enjoyed the restaurant we went there twice. The next time for me was better but I am sure that my oversized margarita helped.
