Good value. Plentiful variety. Excellent service. Our waitress was Aracel. She was attentive but not hovering. Her service seemed genuine. The variety of food was very good and of good quality.

What a lovely location for breakfast! The room is so pretty and you feel like you are back in time! Great service and tons of choices on the buffet. Well worth the cost!

I enjoyed brunch on a Saturday morning in the peaceful Colonial Room Restaurant overlooking the garden courtyard of the Menger Hotel. The all-you-care-to-eat brunch ($16.50/person) included made-to-order eggs and waffles, as well as a buffet stocked with all sorts of breakfast foods (fruit, grits, muffins,...More

Luckily we only ordered appetizers so we only wasted a bit of money. We ordered crab cakes, shrimp and crab cocktail and French onion soup. The shrimp cocktail was rubbery and tasteless with no crab (we were told they had no crab) and the crab...More

The food was very good and the service was friendly. And, of course, since we were staying in the Menger Hotel, you could not ask for a more convenient location! We highly recommend this restaurant.

Hello. The Colonial Room does not serve American colonial food. I would categorize the menu as continental cuisine. I imagine the term "colonial" refers to the fact that Texas was colonized by Americans when it was still... More

Built as an addition to the original hotel and later remodeled by San Antonio architect Atlee B. Ayres in 1912, the Colonial Room Restaurant reflects the prevailing neoclassical style of its time. Decades of elaborate balls and parties have been hosted in this room.Among the celebrities who have dined here are Presidents Grant and McKinley, Robert E. Lee, and French actress Sarah Bernhardt. The Colonial Room Restaurant's famous mango ice cream was served at both of President Clinton’s inaugurations. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the Colonial Room Restaurant features a fabulous noontime brunch and traditional entrees such as prime rib au jus and lamb shank with linguini. Don't miss the popular Sunday brunch buffet, which tastes even better at a table in the garden courtyard.
