Was talked into the prime rib eye which was bland in taste. Server offered a couple of things and failed to bring them and took my plate before I was finished eating. Seriously??? For these prices service should be impeccable and taste should be better.

Thurman was an outstanding server and kept the time we spent there enjoyable, even after informing us that one of our meals had been dropped. They more than made up for the error and the meal with the family was enjoyable and delicious. I will...More

On the riverwalk the eating places go for the view not the food. This place differs: the food was ok, but in my opinion: overpriced for tiny portions. Paying 50 $ and getting two bites of meat and 3 shrimps... are you kidding me? Ribeye...More

The view to the Riverwalk is awesome and the food was special. The meat was tasty and soft enough, escargot incredible and a dessert with ice-cream and Oreo is different and wonderful.

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
