Our dining experience was positively comparable to any other high-end steakhouse in regard to service, cost, and portion. However, be sure to try the lump crab stuffed avocado. And they have the best Red Sangria I've ever had. In fact, I typically don't care too...More

This was an evening meal with all in our group of 14 people. The outside seating area is three levels stepping down towards the river walk area. The main menu is nicely aged steaks, though other options are available. We sat outside, watched the boats...More

For those of you that didn’t have Lewis as your waiter, I’m sorry. He made the entire night for us. The food was good, but his service was impeccable. We sat outside and enjoyed the holiday lights and amazing weather. God bless Texas. 😊 The...More

In good weather, we really enjoyed sitting outside, next to the Riverwalk. It was a quiet Tuesday night, so we weren't hearing Mariachi or the sounds of the very nearby outdoor theatre. It was quiet and comfortable. An occasional falling leaf didn't ruin anyone's margarita,...More

Being from Chicago, we've been to many excellent steakhouses. We were visiting San Antonio for our anniversary and our hosts recommended this restaurant. We had a great time and the food was very good. We don't go to a steakhouse for appetizers so I can't...More

Was able to get a table just walking in, no reservations needed on a Saturday night. That was the best part of meal. Steak cooked wrong, lobster over cooked, au gratin potatoes were raw. Waitress did not care nor help to fix these issues. Creme...More

No everyone looked casually dressed. I saw some men in suits but I also some wearing tee shirts and jeans. I would assume that all types of dress would be fine as long as you don't go in wearing tank tops, shorts, and flip... More

The Little Rhein Steak House is housed in the Bombach House in historic La Villita. The Coahuiltecan Indians founded a settlement here in the 1500s, and in the early 18th century Spanish soldiers and Canary Islanders established a village on the site. The Mexican General Santa Anna encamped here during the battle of the Alamo. During the 19th century, German immigrants designated this area as the Little Rhein district, hence the name Little Rhein Steak House. In 1847, Otto Bombach, a carpenter, built the first two-story structure here for his family. The Bombach House was thereafter utilized as an early Texas home, a boarding house, a grocery store and bar, a private school, and a hangout for desperados. Old photos, posters, beverage trays and other San Antonio collectibles adorn the limestone walls of the Main Dining Room. Antique accents including brass lights from the Federal Courthouse and wooden benches from the Katy Train Depot help to create a comfortable rustic atmosphere
