SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS 78205
San Antonio-style Mexican food. Serving on the banks of the River Walk since 1946.
The restaurant founded in 1946 by Alfred F. Beyer, sits on land first granted title in 1777 by the King of Spain. The Spanish Colonial period hacienda became the core of the new business. The cedar door and window lintels, the fireplace, and thick rock walls, are still evident inside the building.
Casa Rio was the first San Antonio business to open its doors to the River and take advantage of the River's setting. Canoes, gondolas, and paddle boats, evolving into tour and dinner boats, began here and helped create the Riverwalk of today.
Our picturesque location combined with our authentic Mexican food menu offer the perfect setting for your next dinner party, banquet, reception, family gathering or celebration.
Casa Rio offers lunch, dinner and cocktail boat service. Casa Rio makes arrangements with the private boat operator on behalf of the party’s host. Casa Rio provides all the necessary food and beverage services on board the boat. Reservations are made based upon availability of boats. The standard riverboat-dining cruise takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes and can accommodate up to a maximum of 20 people per boat for meal service (lunch and dinner) and up to 30 people per boat for cocktail cruises. Prices are based on a minimum of 10 adults per boat for food and beverage service.
For over 50 years Casa Rio has been serving San Antonio and those who visit our great city. Visit us today!

When Col. Travis drew his famous line in the sand, the lone person not to cross was Moses Rose. After 10 days of fighting, Moses had enough and left...but where did he go? He needed a Hideout! And he found one! Right smack in the heart of the tourist district, just off the corner of Alamo St. and Houston St., Moses Rose's Hideout feels like it has been here since ol' Moses first wandered in 175 years ago! The building is a beautiful old structure with old brick construction and antique tin ceilings dating to the early 1900's.
We've livened the place up with a full bar, Live Music, 10 TV's with lots of sports, a full menu with Mose's favorite Texas foods, along with Santa Anna's favorite Mexican foods: Texican food! One last thing- how good would this Hideout be without a password entry? All guest will be required to know the password to enter, but NO WORRIES if you don't know the password! All “Texas Worthy” guests will be allowed inside! We look forward to seeing you at Moses Rose's Hideout soon!
