Group-Friendly Restaurants in San Antonio from Fine Dining to Outdoor Festivities

San Antonio is truly the epitome of a family town and that's certainly reflected in the restaurants you'll find here. No worries if you're travelling or meeting a big group of friends or family. San Antonio's got you covered!

For just a great place with fantastic food in a fun atmosphere, The Well offers a true Texas experience, from comfort food to cocktails. This place is so big you may lose someone, so stay close. The best part is, no need to bar hop after dinner, as they have a stunning beer garden. Enjoy live music and dancing at this one-stop San Antonio restaurant. 

If casual is what you're looking for, The Luxury is another wonderful choice. Sit on their picnic benches with a few brews and some scratch-made but sinfully delicious grub. With beautiful views of the riverwalk, this joint is hard to pass up. Oh, and you can't leave without trying the fries! 

For fine dining options, Botika is one of the newest restaurants to open its doors in San Antonio. Also a large venue, they serve up some delicious Peruvian-Asian fare that's unlike anything else you'll find in town.
