The food was amazing, we started with the seared Oysters and then moved onto the Cod and Duck entrees. Everything was great and the service was wonderful. The place was busy and we were placed in the bar area, so the noise was a little bit of a nuisance. But overall it was a great experience.

I had a business dinner that I scheduled here, they sat us in a corner near a restroom, and also surrounded by their beverage stock which was sitting on shelves, waiting to be used. The atmosphere, was more like a place you would go if you were going out bar hopping for the evening, and the food was mediocre at best. Not really the atmosphere or food I was going for. They did have a nice wine menu however.

Have dined at the Boiler House many times before events or just to have a special meal in one of the restaurants in the old Brewery, so the decor is appropriately "a Boiler House" along with those acoustics. It still provides an enjoyable meal and hands down the best poached eggs at brunch!

Service was lacking on our visit. We ordered cocktails that didn't arrive before our lunch and even then we had to ask. We were seated with no cutlery or napkins and again had to ask for those once our lunch was served. The manager did make things right by picking up our drinks and offering us a dessert on the house. We would give them a second chance. Their burger saved the day, as it was one of the best I've ever had!!

We had brunch at the Boiler House this past Fathers Day. We got to sit on the 2nd floor and had an awesome waitress. She was friendly, attentive and helped us make wonderful choices for brunch, mimosa and dessert. The food was delicious, atmosphere great, they had good options for kids too and that's always a win. Only feedback we had was that my egg Benedict was hard and not runny. But, would def go back, really enjoyed our experience.

My fiancé and I can't stop talking about this restaurant. The food, drinks, service, and environment were incredible. The char-grilled octopus with watermelon and smoked yogurt absolutely blew us away. We ate there late on a Saturday night so the kitchen was a bit behind getting our food out, but our server gave us a round of drinks and dessert on the house. If you love whiskey, definitely get their Old Fashioned. We can't wait to eat here again the next time we're in San Antonio.
Impressive atmosphere, extremely unimpressive food
My fiancé and I went there for a date night expecting delicious food since it is located in the pearl. He got the Kobe burger, which had pretty good flavor, but it came with pork rinds that were awful. I got a salad and pork belly and I couldn't even finish the pork belly because the taste was awful and was 3/4 fat. We did love the atmosphere and maybe suggest going there for a drink (we got Moscow mules and they were great!) and maybe an appetizer, but the food was not worth the price at all and we left disappointed.

Wow, Jeff White can really cook! We started with the clams casino and the bone marrow. My wife had the lobster & shrimp roll and I had the double patty burger & fresh cut fries... all wonderful! Huge beer selection and the décor and atmosphere were great. The menu changes often so you can and should go often.
Food was decent, but not exceptional. Bar and wait service was ok. Biggest issue was with hostess/seating. Arrived at 1:45 on Mothers Day for a 2:00 reservation. When I arrived, advised the hostess of this and her response was a not overly-friendly 'We'll be more than happy to seat your at your reservation time". Well, when I went back to the hostess stand from the bar right at 2pm, guess what?: my table wasn't ready... had to wait another 15min's. Would certainly give them another chance - as this wasn't a huge deal - but will go back at dinner to sample their regular menu.

Delicious Mother's Day meal! We were greeted warmly by the ladies up front and given a variety of choices in seating. We opted to eat inside since it looked like it was going to rain. Our reservation was for 10 am and the place filled up quickly. Our server, Matt did a fantastic job explaining all the different brunch items. Husband and I started with the Boiler House Bloody Mary's, they had just the right amount of spice. We opted for the chicken liver and focus gras mousse with red onion marmalade and grilled bread. Very tasty and rich! Husband ordered the Lobster Pot Pie, very rich with a wonderful puffed pastry. It was like a deconstructed pot pie. I ordered the Jumbo Shrimp and grits. Nice and spicy and the boudin sausage added a nice layer. Would definitely recommend this place. PS Happy hour menu an prices looked good too, we will be back!
The service was very slow. It took almost 5 min for the server to come to our table. Then an additional 10 min to get 2 juices. The server was frequently hanging out at the bar and when he would walk by he wouldn't even acknowledge our table. I love the food at this place but they really need to work at their service.
Love not like
WE will definitely be going back to the Boiler House. Loved the industrial look, loooong bar and our server was amazing! His recommendations were on point and we were very pleased with how everything came out of the kitchen! Cocktails and wine list did not disappoint!
The Bolier House is the perfect place for that special moment with that special someone. Whether it is a drink with a significant other or a meal with a long lost friend, the Boiler House's food and drink menu will help you make the memory perfect.
