We had walked here and decided to sit awhile so we took the free elevator here instead of paying $10 for the observation deck. It is a bit pricey but we just had wine and the Shrimp & Crab Fondue with Oaxaca cheese & garlic crostini appetizer which was absolutely delicious!

We always enjoy this restaurant. The elevator takes you up, I think, 900ft above San Antonio. It makes a complete revolution about once per hour. We like to go at sundown and watch the sunset and the lights of San Antonio coming on. It's really beautiful. However, don't expect to trade good food for scenery because the food is very... More

This place is worth the hype. The food was phenomenal. The fondue. Amazing. The steak. Perfection. They even gave us a keep sake for our anniversary visit. We had a great time.

I expected a tourist trap steak house. Not so. Great seafood, beautifully prepared.And yet you can still get your steak. We stuck with seafood but the steaks looked great

We had no intentions to go up in the Tower of the Americas. We received the dinner promotion for a timeshare presentation. The menu was somewhat limited and the wait staff seemed untrained and inexperienced. The meals were okay but not spectacular. The revolving restaurant did not revolve due to mechanical issues and we left feeling underwhelmed. The night sky... More

Went to Bar 610 during happy hour, great view, 1/2 price drinks and appetizers, then up to observation deck for free. What a deal. Monarch Margarita and prime rib sliders yummy.

As locals we wanted to visit for some time but finding a reservation had been difficult. We finally decided to plan in advance and made a reservation a month out. We arrived early and planned to have a drink at the bar. Unfortunately the bar area was understaffed and one group of 15 dominated the servers attention. We sat for... More

We are locals that haven't been to Chart House and thought it would be fun to celebrate my husband's birthday. We made a reservation and we promptly seated to a great view! Unfortunately the food was pretty mediocre. I had the dry stuffed flounder with more filling than crab meat and a side of potatoes that was rock hard and... More

After a short wait we were seated next to the window which offered great views of San Antonio. Many of these type places survive solely on the views but dinner was above average, and the calamari appetizer was excellent. Reservations recommended and be sure to request window seating if you're after the view.

We've loved this restaurant in the past but what a disappointment when the 6 of us visited last Thursday evening. First, we waited for 40 minutes for the elevator, then were seated where we could not see and absolutely froze during dinner. (We weren't the only diners who were cold. Others were wrapped in table linens while eating.) We spoke... More
