They will rip you off!. We were there on a Friday night. There were about 10 of us. The waiter was hard to find but in general very nice. The outdoor are was amazing and the all female band sounded great. However, the troubles began when we went to pay. The waiter couldn't properly divide the check and ended up charging my husband and I $85 when our tab should have been $35. We agreed to pay the tab (which included our friends drinks). Then they declined my husbands card (which was a lie). The charge showed up on his account. Then they ran my card and said it was declined. Which was a lie that charge showed on my account! The manager got involved and said he would reverse the charges and asked us to pay $7 the price of two drinks!! Well they reversed my husbands and not mine! After calling several times and them constantly saying they would reverse it.... it is still charged to my account! THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!!!
The flaming fountain can't rescue this crap. This isn't Pat O'Brian's. Even the Universal Studios City Walk in Orlando does 10 times better at replicating the New Orleans. The food was unrecognizable from the parent restaurant. The tiny slice of pecan pie was served cold and coldly. The etufee was tiny, cold, and void of flavor. If only I had looked at the City Search reviews I would not have gone. Avoid this place. There are so many restaurants nearby that actually try.
Great place to leave!!!!. My wife and I went to NOLA and the bar was great so when we went to the one in SATX we expected the same....The bald piano guy was absolutely terrible because he was so drunk he could not hold a tune... When my wife gave him a song written on a napkin to sing, he wanted us to buy him a shot just to sing it!!! I couldn't freakin' believe it!!! The country sounding guy was O K, at least he tried to be funny..... The girl singer was worth the price of admission! I couldn't believe they charged me for going in to see this crap!!!!! Next time we will spend the extra $15 us and go to the Howl at the Moon bar! When we left, we went to Dirty Nelly's and the one piano player they had there was better than the three at Pat O'Brien's, which is sad cause i have been to the original in NOLA and the piano players there were awesome~!!!!!!!
Let me begin by saying how terribly shocked I was to read some of these last few posts. While I knew I was advertising on this site, I was certainly unaware of any of the reviews, be it good or bad, until I visited with my account representative. I assure you we at Pat O'Brien's San Antonio are committed to providing exceptional food, service and entertainment and will settle for nothing less.
RESPONSE IS LIMITED IN CHARACTERS PLEASE READ NEXT REVIEW
So very disappointed!!. SEATED AND IGNORED. WHEN GOT UP LEAVE 20 MINS LATER THE HOST PRETENDED NOT TO SEE US AND TURNED AWAY AS IF WE WERE NOT THERE. WE WERE THE SECOND PARTY TO LEAVE IN THAT 20 MINS. THEY WERE NOT BUSY AND WE SEEN TWO SERVERS COME AND WALK AROUND, THEN LEAVE!!
Our food is made fresh, in house, by a proud Chef from New Orleans. Our staff is equally committed to providing quick, friendly and energetic service. We are constantly looking to improve our entertainment, from our in house DJ's to our nightly bands. I assure all potential visitors to Pat O'Brien's that these reviews will be taken seriously and dealt with accordingly.
RESPONSE LIMITED IN CHARACTERS, PLEASE READ NEXT REVIEW
Walked in and Walked right out!!. The general manager should hire secret shoppers to keep tabs on how employee's treat the customers! What a wastSad
I encourage everyone who is looking to "Have Fun" and enjoy a great setting, to stop by for a world famous hurricane. Feel free to contact me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org with any feedback, positive or constructive, about your visit. We understand our guests have choices on where to spend their hard earned money and will continue to strive to live up to the New Orlean's Pat O'Brien's proud legacy.

Horrible, Horrible, Horrible.
Avoid this place. Staff is rude and the piano guys are horrible. One screeches his way through the songs (at least he is nice looking) and the other one thinks hes a country singer but hasnt found the key he sings in and can't keep in tune (and is nothing to look at).
Its a shame this place carries the Pat OBriens name.
HORRIBLE!!!. This place stinks! The service was terrible and the food was just as bad. Our waitress got our drink/food orders and then split. After eating half of the poor tasting food we waited 20 minutes before we finally spotted her duck in the kitchen. My husband had to go into the kitchen to tell her we needed our check. We lived in New Orleans for three years and this place does no justice to the original Pat O's.
POOR POOR AND WORST. I Dont recomend this place at all. Went here to have a good time after NCAA celebration, and were greeted RUDELY at the door. Paid cover charge to be there not but an hr. The bouncers inside think they can grab and assult people just because they work there and once the police come..they are no whrere to be found..hmmmm. My husb and I went with a small group , were cursed at by an employee and asked to leave after an accidental bump even tho we apologized. They werent going to allow us to even close our tab, when we refused to leave without OUR CREDITCARD, the biggest bouncer there slammed my husband and choked him repeatedly and no one even helped that worked there..they jus said they couldnt get him off. My husband is left with 2 black eyes and bruises on his neck. We are filing assult charges, this was just uncalled for. I will NEVER go there again. And I dont recomend it at all. To top it off they overcharged my card 50.00 more than what we had agreed.
Editorial Review. This restaurant is perfect for romantic evenings under the stars, nights out with friends, and afternoon meals with the kids.
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.
