Owner description: This 750-foot tower built for the 1968 HemisFair has unbeatable panoramic views, especially if you're in the tower's revolving restaurant.

The food is average. The decor reminds me of the 60s and 70s.
The best is to be able to see San Antonio, El Alamo, The Mission, while having dinner. I like this type of restaurant, turning slowly to see all around, over the city.

This place is a little pricey but access for a ticket if for the full day, so we went twice (one for day views and one for night). The have a pricey fine dining restaurant and a separate lounge as well as the observation deck. Awesome photo opportunities.

We went for happy hour and food and drinks were great. Nice service and fantastic views. We went to the observation deck for a 360 view of San Antonio and then did the short 4D movie. The grounds are unbelievably beautiful. Highly recommend a visit here.

There is also a 4D movie offered but the quality is terrible. The sets move when there is no reason to and water spray in your face to "enhance" the experience but it's about 20 yr past up to date. I'd would pay for it or wait for it.

Went on a Saturday, decided to eat at Chart house, but unfortunately didn't make a reservation had to wait 2 hours for a table but was able to wait In the bar area which is located on top of the revolving restaurant, it still has fantastic views. We went around 730pm and we were able to catch the sunset from 750ft up it was just beautiful! Many prom dates there, maybe the reason we had to wait 2 hours. But worth the wait!
