Took the family here 2/11/17. Two of the five meals were great. The other three were ok. The prime rib and pork lions were great. Filet, strip, and steak and fries were ok. If your from Houston as I am this place reminds me very much of Houston"s on 59 and Kirby. The carrot cake was also great.

By the way, I heard other customer's talking about this and... More

In the evening the restaurant is somewhat dark with lights over the tables, which is very nice. I have never had a bad meal here. The Steak Maui and Ribs are exceptional, as are the fish dishes, soups and salads. There... More

The restaurant is located at The Quarry on the north side of San Antonio, but south of the airport. It's exterior appearance was very attractive, and the interior likewise. The hostess was very friendly and seated us promptly. (This was... More
