Bring the Whole Crew Along for Great Eats & Drinks

San Antonio is known for its hospitality and this includes its restaurants. If you're looking for a fabulous venue to celebrate a special occasion, enjoy a lunch with your business associates or simply kick back with some brews and some lobster rolls on picnic tables, we got you covered!

Dorrego's, located in the luxurious modern boutique hotel, Valencia, offers a superior dining experience. With an eye for elegant decor and authentic Argentinian cuisine, you'll be sure to impress the whole crew. Just make sure to start dinner out right with some yummy cocktails and their flamed Argentinian provolone!

A favorite tourist hot spot for their acclaimed Tex-Mex is Acenar, located downtown, conveniently right next to Valencia. This spacious restaurant offers an expansive patio overlooking the riverwalk and affordable cuisine in an upbeat atmosphere that sets the tone for a night of revelry. 

For something a little more chill that doesn't skimp on quality, check out the Shuck Shack for tasty seaside seafood eats at this largely outdoor eatery. From fish and chips to their world famous lobster rolls, you are guaranteed to leave full and happy!
