Took the family here 2/11/17. Two of the five meals were great. The other three were ok. The prime rib and pork lions were great. Filet, strip, and steak and fries were ok. If your from Houston as I am this place reminds me very much of Houston"s on 59 and Kirby. The carrot cake was also great.

Upon check-in and giving my cell phone number, I was sent a text that continuously gave me an update on the wait time. Excellent service. By the way, I heard other customer's talking about this and... More

This restaurant has been here awhile and continues to offer great food and great service in a wonderful atmosphere. In the evening the restaurant is somewhat dark with lights over the tables, which is very nice. I have never had a bad meal here. The Steak Maui and Ribs are exceptional, as are the fish dishes, soups and salads. There... More

On a trip to San Antonio recently, my wife and I dined at this restaurant because of recommendations from friends. The restaurant is located at The Quarry on the north side of San Antonio, but south of the airport. It's exterior appearance was very attractive, and the interior likewise. The hostess was very friendly and seated us promptly. (This was... More

Very good service. Steaks and tuna steak were all done to perfection. Smashed potatoes were tasty but the mound was excessively large! Wine selection by the glass is small, but very reasonably priced.

This is one of our favorite San Antonio restaurants. The menu is small but they always have daily menu additions and everything they prepare is well executed. The kitchen and grill area are open so you can see the effort they put into everything they prepare. This is one of a handful of places in San Antonio that uses real... More
