San Antonio Restaurants for Delicious After-Hours Eats

Unlike most metropolitan cities, San Antonio is a city that enjoys its sleep, which means there aren't a lot of restaurants open late at night. However, you can be sure that the restaurants that are open, at least on this list, will be sure to satisfy your after hours cravings! 

As new restaurants continue to pop-up and thrive in the Alamo city, so does the opportunities to eat out past 9 o'clock at night. Some of the most wonderful fine dining establishments in town are doing their best to cater to a more cultured crowd who likes to go out on the town on weekends as well as during the week.

At the top of the list is Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery. It's easily the talk of the town and reservations for dinner are still hard to come by, so you're highly encouraged to plan in advance for this one. You'll find there's little better after an evening out than sitting down to a scrumptious seafood meal here where it's always fresh and ingenious!

20 Nine Restaurant and Wine Bar has really put itself on the foodie radar in the past several months with the addition of culinary talent, Chef Jerry Toomey, who is inspired by the farm-to-table ingredients they procure from their own personal farmer.

For something a little more laid back, check out Barbaro for pizza and beer (or cocktails!) or Luther's, for a pile of guilty nachos after a bit of dancing!
