Great food and fun atmosphere – My son and I went to Pat O'Briens on a recent visit to SA and really enjoyed it. The alligator bites appetizer was just 'okay' but the shrimp creole and red bean and rice were excellent. The hurricanes were pretty good as well. Nice atmosphere and live music when we went. If I lived in SA I could see going there often.
Best Piano Bar In San Antonio – A group of people and myself were at the San Antonio Pat O'Briens last Saturday night. We spent the evening in the piano bar and what a great time we had. The staff were friendly and accomodating, especially our waitress Kate, what a hard worker. She was right on top of replenishing our drinks.The piano show was really fun. Go and see Summer and Brad perform. They were hilarious, especially Brad and had our table in stiches watching them batlle guy and girl songs. The other two players were ok, but the real draw are these two. They work really well together. Summer has an awesome voice and Brad kept the audience singing along and their duets rock. We couldnt wait for their hour breaks between stage time for them to come back. They even got the audience to stand up and sing the national anthem.The only drawback we could think of was the five dollar cover but even still it was an enjoyable evening.
Poor Service/Does not accommodate groups – After attending a wedding in San Antonio, we decided to venture to the Riverwalk for a post wedding celebration. The entire wedding party was there, and we thought what better way to celebrate than to go to Pat O Brien's...BIG MISTAKE. Upon arrival we were treated very rudely by the doorman, and then requested to speak to the manager on duty. The manager on duty arrived and was also arrogant and non-accomodating to our group. We had over 15 people with us, along with a bride and groom. We all paid the door charge for a whopping one hour of service( or lack there of) and experienced nothing but rude bar staff, non-air conditioned facilities, and an over-crowded mix of drunken tourists! Needless to say, we will not be stoppin back at this bar on our next trip to the Alamo City. If you want the real experience, I would recommend Pat O"Briens in New Orleans. Don't waste your time with this Mc Donald's of a franchise. If you are in San Antonio, try one of the other hundreds of bars featuring music/entertainment, that are actually nice while taking your money. There are too many bars (and piano bars) on the Riverwalk to experience, to waste your time at this establishment!!
Second best bar I know of. – Go here. This bar is by far one of my favorite bars in the world - as long as it's a weekend. Pat O's has a few bars really. One of them is set up with patio style seating and with the nighttime weather here in San Antonio it's a wonderful place to sit and drink a New Orleans style hurricane. The other bar is a piano bar which is always packed friday and saturday night. Pcked. you have to get there before 10:30 to get a good seat and I recommend getting a good seat. Everyone writes their song requests on napkins and gets to hear them played on dueling pianos for a reasonable tip. The piano players, as a whole, are friendly, extremely talented and a lot of fun. All of them really, except for the fat one. The fat male piano player is a surly, money grubbing, tip monger who pretty much ruins his performance by inserting miserable ploys to get paid. The fat ruins the show. But all the others are wonderful.
This is a great place to come to if your visiting from out of town, tourists or conventioneers. It's also a wonderful place to take your friends for their birthdays.
What else...you should get the hurricanes. it's an overpriced rum based drink but they taste fantastic and two or three of them get you good and boozed up. Kepp an eye on the waitresses and your tab however. I've been in a couple situations where the waitresses have tried to fudge my tab by a good fifty dollars. But it's right down town and if you don't like it try another bar down the street.
Surprisingly good lunch – We've been to Pat O'Briens in both New Orleans and Memphis but only for drinks and maybe an appetizer. We tried lunch here and it was very good and very reasonable. The muffalatta sandwich was good and the shrimp were excellent and very fresh and the portions were very nice for a lunch. So if you want a fancy drink or beer and a reasonable lunch with a New Orleans flair try the San Antonio Pat Obrien's.
Awesome place to down some drinks! – I live in Houston and frequently visit Pat Obrien's- i love it there the people are down to earth and it seems to be there is always a handful or handsome guys ladies- not just one or two but a whole bunch! i love it there try the Hurricane's it seems to be their specialty even though im a beer drinker i still say they are preety damn good!
excellent brunch atmosphere with live jazz band. the only drawback was that they did not offer mimosa pitchers.
