San Antonio's River Walk Showcases Some of the City's Best Restaurants!

You won't have to stray far from San Antonio's popular river walk to find the best restaurants this city has to offer! With so many new, exciting restaurants popping up all over town, your biggest challenge will be deciding which one to try first. 

Supper, located inside the stunning Hotel Emma, is a must if you're visiting San Antonio for the first time. It's the new star of the Pearl Brewery Complex and a premier culinary destination, to be sure. With locally-sourced veggies on the menu, cooked to perfection and a variety of simple yet perfectly-executed dishes, you can't go wrong here. Did we mention they have an exceptional view of the river walk from their patio? 

If views are what you're looking for, Biga on the Banks, Las Ramblas and Acenar also have fantastic views. Biga and Las Ramblas are go-to's for upscale dining, while Acenar is a great place to take a large group of friends for a fun, festive atmosphere.... oh, and of course, the margaritas!

If you're looking for something a little different, a little special, but utterly delicious, go to the Pearl on the weekends and grab a plate from Humble House at the farmers market and take it down to the river, just a few steps away. They make everything from scratch with the highest quality, local ingredients. You can even buy some of their pestos or hummus to-go. You may have to wait in line, but it's worth it!
