I have been to Pat O's many times for lunch and hurricanes and always have had a great time. Lately I have not been going out because San Antonio Bars are all the same. Meat markets with guys trying to grab you in places they should'nt. Tonight I was downtown with my girls and we ended up on the patio listening to an acoustic band jamming and drinking Yup you guessed it Hurricanes. I went to the ladies room and discovered a stairwell going up with people making their way up there. I followed a couple and ended up in a bar that reminded me of a place I went last winter in Berlin. OMG. it was amazing! I totally forgot about my friends and got lost in the middle of a packed sweaty dancefloor. The Dj was playing the most amazing techno I have ever heard in San Antonio much less the United States and the Bass just grabbed a hold of me and moved me all night. My girls ended up finding me and we had the time of our life! Forget all the other clubs in the city and go there. I promise you will have a blast!

We were there on a Friday night. There were about 10 of us. The waiter was hard to find but in general very nice. The outdoor are was amazing and the all female band sounded great. However, the troubles began when we went to pay. The waiter couldn't properly divide the check and ended up charging my husband and I $85 when our tab should have been $35. We agreed to pay the tab (which included our friends drinks). Then they declined my husbands card (which was a lie). The charge showed up on his account. Then they ran my card and said it was declined. Which was a lie that charge showed on my account! The manager got involved and said he would reverse the charges and asked us to pay $7 the price of two drinks!! Well they reversed my husbands and not mine! After calling several times and them constantly saying they would reverse it.... it is still charged to my account! THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!!!

This isn't Pat O'Brian's. Even the Universal Studios City Walk in Orlando does 10 times better at replicating the New Orleans. The food was unrecognizable from the parent restaurant. The tiny slice of pecan pie was served cold and coldly. The etufee was tiny, cold, and void of flavor. If only I had looked at the City Search reviews I would not have gone. Avoid this place. There are so many restaurants nearby that actually try.

My wife and I went to NOLA and the bar was great so when we went to the one in SATX we expected the same....The bald piano guy was absolutely terrible because he was so drunk he could not hold a tune... When my wife gave him a song written on a napkin to sing, he wanted us to buy him a shot just to sing it!!! I couldn't freakin' believe it!!! The country sounding guy was O K, at least he tried to be funny..... The girl singer was worth the price of admission! I couldn't believe they charged me for going in to see this crap!!!!! Next time we will spend the extra $15 us and go to the Howl at the Moon bar! When we left, we went to Dirty Nelly's and the one piano player they had there was better than the three at Pat O'Brien's, which is sad cause i have been to the original in NOLA and the piano players there were awesome~!!!!!!!

SEATED AND IGNORED. WHEN GOT UP LEAVE 20 MINS LATER THE HOST PRETENDED NOT TO SEE US AND TURNED AWAY AS IF WE WERE NOT THERE. WE WERE THE SECOND PARTY TO LEAVE IN THAT 20 MINS. THEY WERE NOT BUSY AND WE SEEN TWO SERVERS COME AND WALK AROUND, THEN LEAVE!!

Avoid this place. Staff is rude and the piano guys are horrible. One screeches his way through the songs (at least he is nice looking) and the other one thinks hes a country singer but hasnt found the key he sings in and can't keep in tune (and is nothing to look at).\n\nIts a shame this place carries the Pat OBriens name.

This place stinks! The service was terrible and the food was just as bad. Our waitress got our drink/food orders and then split. After eating half of the poor tasting food we waited 20 minutes before we finally spotted her duck in the kitchen. My husband had to go into the kitchen to tell her we needed our check. We lived in New Orleans for three years and this place does no justice to the original Pat O's.
