The Boiler House and Texas Grill & Wine Garden Ratings and Reviews
They have a very accommodating gluten free menu. All the food we saw pass by looked excellent and more importantly all the food we had was excellent.
The quail poppers and the pork belly were both fantastic . and large portions....
Had the best burger I've ever had in my entire life, and that's saying a lot ,Kobe beef burger with foie gras it was perfection!
We wanted a good Sunday Brunch - wow! We found the best in town. Starting with the Blood orange mimosas - right thru to our incredible main courses! The salmon benedict - I am still dreaming about! And my husband's Ultimate Steak and Egg - he loved! We will be back! Can we get Sunday Brunch say on Wednesday for dinner? Ha!
Visiting San Antonio for the first time as a visitor rather than a business destination, my friends and I chose The Boiler House and Texas Grill & Wine Garden for a dinner out in a new area. We were impressed with the area, the variety of restaurants and bars. We chose this place because of a recommendation as being Gluten Free Friendly, as one of our party members has a serious issue with gluten. That said, the meal was very good. We avoided the largest cuts and portions of meat because we were not going to be able to enjoy the leftovers, but feasted on a variety of starters, salads and specials. Excellent all the way around. We also enjoyed visiting with two couples at an outdoor table (what a great idea!) - just a big farmhouse table overlooking the square all by itself. (Their patio is adjacent) They had two large steaks with a full rib (like extending 8 inches off the cut of meat) like a brontosaurus rib. They were enjoying their meal and didn't mind us oohing and ahing over their meal. Next time I'll share a slab of meat with some friends for sure. Enjoyed my visit and will be back!
Great looking venue. Our order came out cold. Within a few minutes it came back out which made us suspicious. The presentation of the food did look appetising when they first brought it out but we sent it back as it was cold. When it came back out the second time they had just thrown it in a bowl and not made any effort. The sous chef came out and apologised but our experience at this restaurant had been tainted.
It was our first time there, and we were not disappointed. Beautiful location on the grounds of the historic Pearl Brewery. The hostess was nice and our waitress was efficient and knowledgeable. She answered all our questions and made recommendations. The food was very good. The spinach salad was delicious and big enough to share. The entrees were excellent. I had the oxtail with gnocchi. Wasn't too sure about the oxtail, but the dish was great.
The biggest surprise was, that they serve beer from Ranger Creek, and they also have a cocktail made with one of their whiskeys. Ranger Creek is our favorite local brewery. I tried the cocktail, and I loved it.
Not an a place I would recommend or ever consider going back to again. I don't think they will be in business within 6 months.
Servers had a terrible attitude which was only exemplified by management after we told them about our meals not prepared to our specifications. Quality of the food was "OK" but not to the expectation we were told by the server. Then again, trying to get our server or a Manager to our table seemed to a burden all together so no wonder they had no clue about the problems with our meals.
Prices were high, food preparation was low, service was low and management's response was awful.
This restaurant is not worthy of your money - whether your own or from an expense account.
