Platters include steaks, crabby cakes, salmon, and even salads for the wimpy eater. Lunch includes sandwiches, salads and buckets of good food. The wait staff is irreverent by design, and the decor is local garage-sale stuff. Seventy-four kinds of beer. No cover, no dress code and definitely no class. Billed as "The Rowdy of the River".

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.
