  • Gabe H.Moscow Mule: Great. Oaxaca Mule: Best. Especially if you like Mezcal.

    55555 by Gabe H.


  • Wesley L.Everything is delish

    55555 by Wesley L.


  • JasonI'm seeing complaints on timing. Reserved a table via Opentable and had great, timely service. Remember, Mixologists take their time with crafty drinks so be patient, it's worth it!

    55555 by Jason


  • Meghan W.SUPER HIPSTER. Bartenders are still great.

    55555 by Meghan W.


  • Nancy R.Demand a drink or you won't get served. Pretentious bartenders. We left after being ignored.

  • Sandra A.Good Food a nd atmosphere

    55555 by Sandra A.


  • Adrian K.Don't expect to be served quickly here - even if it's quiet.

    55555 by Adrian K.


  • Tiffany L.Service is so slow... Don't expect to find flavored rums or vodkas, but the Moscow mule is an oldie but a goodie

    55555 by Tiffany L.


  • J R.Ok these bartenders know what they are doing try the Midnight in Mexico Smokey flavorful but only if you like Mezcal

    55555 by J R.


  • Brian U.Been in this town one night and so far best place I have been.

    55555 by Brian U.


  • Brett C.Good beer selection and awesome specialty cocktails. Atmosphere makes me feel like I am out of San Antonio, which is always a plus.

    55555 by Brett C.


  • Katherine R.Try the chile sale and pulled pork sandwich - pretty awesome, even for someone who doesn't like pork!

    55555 by Katherine R.


  • Jason N.Waited for 15 minutes at the bar and was ignored. Moved on.

    22222 by Jason N.


  • Roberto B.Nice view of the River, awesome selection of single malts, great food! Definitely worth trying to get a break from Mexican Food.

    55555 by Roberto B.


  • Abel A.They make their own pickles and condiments. GREAT food served late into the night.

    55555 by Abel A.


  • Josh R.The jalapeno bean burger was awesome! If I lived here, Esquire would be a staple in my bar / restaurant rotation.

    55555 by Josh R.


  • Jennifer R.Continuing: the staff was rude and done with us after that! Sad! Bad impression!

    11111 by Jennifer R.


  • Jennifer R.Was nice and quiet and relaxing. However, they are a little full of themselves! Waiter recommended a drink for me, I have it a chance and had about 4 sips and knew it wasn't for me!

    55555 by Jennifer R.


  • Curtis M.Moscow mule my favorite!

    55555 by Curtis M.


  • Andrew M.Capone's Revolver is a delicious rye whiskey cocktail with a tiny bit of spicy bitter. So good.

    55555 by Andrew M.


  • Andrew M.Jalapeño Bean Burger is worth trying

    55555 by Andrew M.


  • Don S.Nice; doesn't feel tourist-y

    55555 by Don S.

    55555 by Guadalupe O.


  • Mike T.Try a medical cocktail

    55555 by Mike T.


  • Aaron H.Love the bar. But it took 20 minutes to get someone to take our order and the place isn't 1/2 full. Plan on a loooong wait for a drink.

    22222 by Aaron H.


  • Monica H.Food is amazing. Cocktails are as good as my favorite bar in NYC. Everything is a fraction of what I would pay in NYC. Cannot recommend enough. Try the stormy high!

    55555 by Monica H.


  • Ilya B.Book in advance if you plan to come here during some humongous conference.

    55555 by Ilya B.

  • Brent K.The Inner Peace (bourbon and orange bitters)... is very.

    55555 by Brent K.

    33333 by Amy A.

    55555 by Nichelle B.

  • Marla H.The chili relleno is a MUST!!!!! This thing is huge and off the charts good.

    55555 by Marla H.


  • Jim U.At Esquire Tavern, cocktails are a craft. The oranges in a screwdriver are fresh squeezed directly into the glass. Old fashioned was made with love too. Well worth a visit!

    55555 by Jim U.

    55555 by David B.

    55555 by Patrick M.


  • charlie h.The fried pickles were really bad. The onion rings were absolutely tasteless but the bison burger was really good. I won't be back here

    33333 by charlie h.


  • SpikeA bar for San Antonio visitors who want a taste of the local life. They say everything's big in Texas, but this is the largest bar in the Lone Star State.

    55555 by Spike


  • Gerry R.On the Riverwalk, but out of the way so there isn't a constant stream of people passing by. Relaxing balcony. Classic tavern with old elegance. Good beers and cocktails.

  • matthew h.Best Moscow Mule that i have had in Texas.

    55555 by matthew h.


  • Anna O.They started not letting people in because of "fire codes," but I think it's because they were on Top Chef and are trying to be exclusive now. So sad that they do that in an unsafe location.

    22222 by Anna O.

    55555 by Karina A.
