The famous San Antonio River Walk is an urban waterway located one story below street level, but it feels like worlds away from the San Antonio city center. Here, you can dine right up against the river while boats putter by, not unlike the canals of Venice. Find out what the restaurants of the River Walk have to offer: 

Top Restaurants on the San Antonio River Walk

1. Casa Rio

Casa Rio was the first restaurant to open on the River Walk, and the first restaurant to offer riverside seating. The restaurant itself is steeped in history, sitting on land first granted title in 1777 by the King of Spain and next to the first bridge built to cross the river.

Casa Rio boasts a menu of San Antonio-style Mexican, and its colorful array of riverside umbrellas makes it one of the most photographed spots on the river.
