“For drinking, meh.”

Waxy O'Connors on the Riverwalk
Ranked #7 of 138 Nightlife in San Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We randomly stopped here on our trip through Texas as we just wanted to see what the water walk was all about. We ate food at another place, but wanted to cap the night off by catching up on basketball scores and some beer. The staff was fairly attentive despite a night rush coming in. The place served food late and it looked amazing, but the beer selection was rather limited.

This is a tourist place, beers were $6.50 a piece, that is rather crazy when my wife was drinking domestic beers. The atmosphere is pretty nice with your typical Irish Pub paneling and use of wood. The back area has an excellent private area with a comfortable leather bench to sit and play darts around.

The food seemed rather affordable on the menu and I heard plenty of customers rave about it. I would definitely come back for dinner, but probably venture elsewhere for some alcoholic beverages.

Had great fun at Waxy O'Connor"s over St. Patrick's Day weekend! Good Food, Good drink, great music and although it was very busy the service was good too. Nice way to spend a evening or just stop for some libation on the Riverwalk. It is worth the stop!

We stopped in one evening around 9:30 and Joe was playing his guitar and singing! He is awesome!!! He plays a huge variety. He's Irish but played Johnny Cash really well too :)

He totally caused us to end up staying for the whole night.
We ended up having the chicken tender appetizer. It says 3 tenders, it's 3 HUGE tenders more like chicken breast size. The breading was nice and crunchy. The two of us shared it. It was good and filling. Joe was awesome. Staff was good overall.
We sat at the bar near the riverwalk patio so we could enjoy the music. The patio looked nice as well had heaters (January) but we wanted to enjoy the live music so we opted for the bar inside.
Fun place worth stopping in!
