Very casual. Just good basic food. I’d call it comfort food. Root beer is fabulous. If you want healthy low calorie food don’t eat here. Usually packed at lunch. Wait staff is Effecient and quick.

This was an unexpected surprise. We only had a little more time left before we needed to head to the airport. Had planned on eating at one of the cafes on the river walk since it was such a pretty day. When we asked a...More

We came here for lunch based on TA reviews. While it was a solid stop, it was nothing spectacular. We started with a bowl of split pea soup, which was ok. We then had the meatloaf and reuben sandwich. Both were good, but not great....More

Went to Schilos tonight after reading glowing reviews and because of friends recommendations. This may be one of my biggest Trip Advisor let downs ever. Promoting itself as the oldest restaurant in San Antonio with schnitzels, reubens, sausage and other wonders, I was hopeful for...More

We stop in one morning for breakfast. This is a German restaurant one of the oldest in San Antonio. It still has that old work feel and is worth the visit just for the ambience. The breakfast was good but nothing special. I think it...More

Our first visit here will have us coming back again. Breakfast was excellent. We ordered a build your own omelet, breakfast tacos and biscuits and gravy. Can’t wait to go back.

Walking down the side walk to a conference we stopped in just on a whim to try Schilo’s for lunch and wow...excellent food. The atmosphere is awesome with the old flooring and tall ceilings with the tin, but enough about architecture. The root beer is...More

The Riverwalk is so convenient and enjoyable that any hotel is a pleasant walk to get there. I don't remember which would be the closest, if walking is difficult for you, but if not, it's no more than a ten or fifteen minute... More
