  •  The bees knees is amazing!

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

    55555 by Gabe H.

  •  Everything is delish

    55555 by Wesley L.

  •  I'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

  •  SUPER HIPSTER. Bartenders are still great.

    55555 by Meghan W.

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

  •  Good Food a nd atmosphere

    55555 by Sandra A.

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

    55555 by Adrian K.

  •  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.

  •  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.

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

    55555 by Brian U.

  •  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.

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

    55555 by Katherine R.

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

    22222 by Jason N.

  •  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.

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

    55555 by Abel A.

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

    55555 by Josh R.

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

    11111 by 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.

  •  Moscow mule my favorite!

    55555 by Curtis M.

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

    55555 by Andrew M.

  •  Jalapeño Bean Burger is worth trying

    55555 by Andrew M.

  •  Nice; doesn't feel tourist-y

    55555 by Don S.

  •  Si no puedes tomar bebidas alcohólicas pide el strawberry collins, la hamburguesa bbq esta de-li-ció-sa!! Buen servicio :)!!

    55555 by Guadalupe O.

  •  Try a medical cocktail

    55555 by Mike T.

  •  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.

  •  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.

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

    55555 by Ilya B.

  •  Fresh take on caucasians. Must order.

    55555 by Ben G.

  •  ภายในผับบรรยากาศสบายๆ .....

    55555 by Somchai R.

  •  Total dive. Still on the fence.

    22222 by Michelle J.

  •  My mouth is on fire (in a good way!) after the Tacos Con Papas. Only $6 to boot. Yum.

    55555 by Brent K.

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

    55555 by Brent K.

  •  Waited 30 minutes to get a drink. Great place to sit in the cool air conditioning as long as your not hungry or thirsty :|

    33333 by Amy A.

  •  Definitely ask the bartender what he recommends! I had the French 75 and could not have been happier. The shrimp cocktail appetizer is amazing as well as the Texas French Onion Dip!! WILL Return!!!

    55555 by Nichelle B.

  •  Tacos con Papas and a Moscow Mule are a solid choice.

    55555 by Joseph P.

  •  Love the atmosphere! Reminds me of Philadelphia.

    55555 by Paul L.

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

    55555 by Marla H.

  •  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.

  •  Can't say enough good things about this bar. Perfectly balanced drinks, stellar food and atmosphere that can't be faked.

    55555 by David B.

  •  Great bar, great beer, even better cocktails. A must-do!

    55555 by Sherry W.

  •  Bring gummy bears for the cute bartender!

    33333 by D-Rock

  •  Great location from the Drury Hotel. Also the exit for the water taxi

    33333 by Doug M.

  •  Busy and a little difficult to get served, but comfortable and nice drinks.

    55555 by Shyamali C.

  •  The Tomcat Miller String Trio plays American roots music (rockabilly/blues/jazz) every Tuesday from 8-11! Sounds great w/ a bacon cheeseburger & Pecan Porter.

    55555 by Jenn O.

  •  Love the Pimento Grilled Cheese!

    55555 by Patrick M.

  •  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.

  •  A 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

  •  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.

    55555 by Gerry R.

  •  Try the Pickled Beet Salad (via @Foodspotting)
