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.

As always great food and service. This is our 3rd time in a month to go to the Boiler House.

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.

Had a reservation and wanted a table but got a bar table with uncomfortable chairs. Not kid friendly as it pertains to food. Server was great! Needs more televisions or none at all.
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.
A bit overrated
I found the food good, but not nearly as amazing as others had bragged about. The atmosphere was great and so was the service.

Went on a business dinner and ordered the small plates to share. Everything was excellent. Favorites were the bison meatballs, tuna ceviche, and brussel sprouts.
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.
Boiler House has unique, well crafted eats. Hearty, delicious, and generous. We've been there twice and it's been great both times. It was super busy, as it was Mother's Day and they handled the crowd in stride.
Great for Brunch
As always the food was great and the variety was amazing. Service staff was outstanding even though it was Mother's Day.

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!

Atmosphere was so fun, food was EXCELLENT! Staff and as super helpful and waitress was excited and educated on the food selections.
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.
Amazing as always!!!
We had Sunday brunch with my in-laws and the food was amazing again, the service was great, tried new plates and they were excellent.

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!

Krispy Kreme burger was amazing. All the food for that matter was tasty. Our server was awesome. Will come again for brunch.
Great Restaurant at Historic Pearl Brewery
This was our first visit to the Boiler House and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Everything about it was great -- food, presentation, wait staff, atmosphere. We highly recommend it and will definitely go back.
Great First Experience!
Reunited with great friends over brunch. Could not have been more pleased with the experience! Our server was phenomenal, as was the food and overall ambience. Will be back many times in the future.

Went for lunch and ate outside so much quieter than usual. $5 happy hour drinks were a nice surprise.
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.
Great restaurant in the Pearl district
Came here with a colleague to check out the venue as our company plans to have a private event here. There are a few private dining areas and a full bar upstairs for events. We decided to have dinner and ordered off their expansive menu and got a bunch of shared plates. The food was delivered in a timely fashion and we received very good service. Our wait staff was knowledgeable and made recommendations. We ordered a variety of food including the meatballs, brussel sprouts, the quail jalapeno poppers, the burrata cheese spread and the wedge salad. Food was amazing. Not just good - AMAZING. We both live in the Bay Area and are food snobs with our direct access to San Francisco restaurants but this place was really really impressive. The Pearl district boasts a lot of cool restaurants and this one is a gem. A bit dark inside but the ambiance is great. Noise level is moderate but not too bad. Expansive wine list and mixed drinks as well. We decided to host the event here. Looking forward to heading back in a few weeks!

Creative and delicious dishes! Mac and cheese blt is amazing!
I took my wife here for her birthday dinner as she had heard good things. The meal started out with good service. The appetizers were nothing short of AMAZING! We got the charcuterie plate and the quail poppers. After the appetizer was served the service slacked waaaay off and we waited for the server to refill my wife's drink twice. Not she finished her drink then we waited for another one to be brought, the glass sat on the table empty for over 10 minutes with no recognition and no waiter to be found. She got the tuna steak for dinner and was very happy with her dish. Unfortunately I ordered the rib eye. It wasn't complaint worthy, but for $46 I would expect a better steak. They top each steak with some butter and the butter on top of my steak wouldn't melt. You go to any steakhouse worth it's salt and you know that would never happen at say Ruth's Chris. I think they pay too much attention to their "signature" dishes and the steaks are an after thought. Shame because for $46 you would expect a decent steak. We probably won't be going back. This place may be great for wine, beer or the "bar scene", not really sure because we didn't drink too much nor are we interested in the "bar scene". If you want to go someplace for appetizers I could definitely recommend this place, but avoid the steak. Nothing really manager complaint worthy just disappointing.
My wife and I decided upon this based on the interesting menu. The prices were higher then we usually pay, but the money was well worth it. Everything we ordered was excellent and fully delicious. Their drink menu is full and Includes cocktails, wine and spirits. Would visit again ASAP !
Pretty good food but a bit steep
It's easy to spend a lot of money here, for food that is pretty good. The Cod I had was decent, though my wife's Pork Chops were quite good and plentiful. I'd still say that my overall experience was quite good because of the great customer service, great location, and generally good ambiance for romantic dinners. If you don't mind dropping some bucks, they have a very respectable wine list.
My wife and I had Boiler House for dinner on Valentines. It was not the most romantic spot in San Antonio but the venison was fantastic. They did a fantastic job. We would definitely return with friends.

Food was great, followed our server's recommendation.
Valentine's brunch was great!
Enjoyed walking thru the farmers market before our meal. The spinach salad and ultimate steak and eggs were also great ! best thing however were the prickly pear mimosas! Yummy!
Brunch is a separate menu, but the options and combinations are interesting. Bar service is a bit slow, but worth trying it out to see if the venue suits you. Decor is authentically Texan.
Didn't stay for our reservation.
We sat at the bar before our reservation time,since we were an hour early. The bartender that was making drinks was very helpful, but her area seemed to be a gathering place for all the waiters and waitresses to complain about customers. There was a lot of cursing, and they all seemed to very disgruntled. Needless to say it was off putting, so we left.
