We dined here and were really pleased with the service, food, atmosphere and price of this place! It is right on the river walk and had wonderful outdoor seating with heat lamps if it is a chilly night. The waitress was friendly and efficient.

We recently visited La Gloria Ice House for lunch. We chose to sit outside to enjoy the sunny February day. The view of the San Antonio River was very nice. However, I would warn people that the outdoor seating has many, many large birds that constantly are looking for scraps. It doesn't bother us too much, but we have friends... More

The place is marginal at best, catering to suburban and tourist fashionistas. Couldn't believe that they serve guacamole without chips. Nobody in Texas does that! When I asked what happened to the chips they informed me that they are extra. Get a rope!

Right on the river walk, about 1 1/2 from downtown: great outside seating. Everything is ala carte, so we got the beef/cheese tacos(3) and also a chicken tamale... added Mexican corn! Everything was tasty. Ended with the coconut flan! Would definitely go back!!!

Stopped for a nice little working lunch. The atmosphere was great. It was also impressive to see the regional delicacies spelled out on the menu. However, the food lacked the flavor and spice I expected for a self-proclaimed authentic meal.

10 minutes from the air port - kids can stretch their legs, grown ups can have a great margarita & ceviche & everyone will be so happy to be here!
