    Food marginal at best. My husband the oysters were okay. Shrimp cocktail was not fresh. House salad with chicken - chicken breast very dry. Still we thought it was okay. Then they turned off misters at 8 pm and we began to roast in the 95 degree weather. Music was great! Have a drink, listen to jazz and eat elsewhere.

    Decided to give this place a try for my birthday and it did not disappoint. The oysters and peel and eat shrimp and gumbo were phenomenal. I wished they would have a bigger selection of entrées and a better selection of craft beer but overall I would definitely go back again. If you like oysters you’ll definitely want to give this place a try.

    Food was ok at best and took an hour to get our appetizer. Never ordered our main because we ran out of time. Restaurant was not busy and seemed adequately staffed. Not the worst I’ve ever had, but won’t be back.

    Mother's Day lunch/brunch would be busy so I made reservations @onthebendsa. Dad loves oysters so we thought to try it out. My husband and I initially had the Raspberry Mojito but it tasted like Raspberry soda. We switched to Mango Jalapeno Margarita and Raspberry Mule which were so much better. The East Coast Oysters were good when they finally came. It took 45 minutes. We wanted to try the mango ceviche and wagyu shortribs but neither were being served. My husband had the house salad with shrimp and that looked great. We added the Blackened Ahi Tuna sandwich but ended up taking it home. Definitely was a leisurely paced lunch.

    Best part about this place was the service. Our server was amazing, she came by every few minutes the entire time we were there. We had the seafood appetizer. Everything was great except for the Peel and eat shrimp. They were over cooked and did not peel very easily. Will come back for their oysters every time I’m in San Antonio.

    On the bend is a nice spot located inside the Hyatt Regency on the riverwalk. if you want to be in the thick of the tourist are of the Riverwalk. The outdoor seating is right next to band which is loud but If you like a lively evening it’s perfect. The upstairs cigar deck is nice for smokers and you are above the music which makes for a nice evening. The summer breeze and view of the river walk is perfect. It’s okay for an evening out with friends

    Food was bad unfortunately. Oysters were hot, old, had a bad odor. The ribs was over cooked to the point that the knife couldn't cut through the meat. The rice that came with the salmon was cold and had old meat in it. Its just not a great spot for food. The service was on point though no complaint there.

    Poor wait staff. Meal served before appetizer, food served with no utensils or napkins with a 5 minute wait to get some, Very loud music too close to seating, ordered oysters Rockefeller ($32) and not sure there were many oysters hidden in the filler.

    I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and attentiveness of the staff. The waiter suggested a twist to my Jalapeño Margarita by adding cucumber, order this drink immediately 😮‍💨 We didn’t stay for the live jazz music but I’m sure I’ll be back soon to hear what the fuss is all about 😊

    The shrimp cocktail was so bad. The table next to us sent theirs back twice. The cocktail sauce tasted like ketchup. We asked for horseradish to add to it. But the shrimp were boiled in some funky broth that taste could not be covered by the lemon or sauce. The margarita flatbread was raw in the middle and also had a funky taste. The staff was great and I loved the 2nd story seating. But they needed more umbrellas.

    Had reservations for outside unfortunately the table was right in front of music band playing. They offered upstairs outside but everything open was in the sun. So we sat inside. We ended up having the bartender be our server. We ordered oysters they were fine. It would take awhile to get any refill because he was busy helping all the staff. While there they started seating more tables and they had servers. There was a few times we were unsuccessful at getting anyone's attention to order our mains so we decided to just pay and leave. We were checked on at thr beginning by the Manger but at that point everything was good. Can't say I'd go out of my way to go back.

    This was our first time here. Wanting to enjoy a cigar along the riverwalk, this is the best bet. The wait staff works hard to get your drinks and food up the stairs, to extra love and dollars for them. Great cocktails, and we also had a few dozen oysters. There is a drink special most days. Reservations taken, I would suggest that on a Friday or Saturday. It got bust after 7:30. We will be back there on the next trip to San Antonio. Cheers

    The food was fresh and the service was professional and attentive. Being on the River Walk you experienced the vibe from the people passing by which only contributed to a great experience. They had a fabulous saxophone player name Billy Ray Sheppard he was mainly Jazz (our favorite), he was pleased the crowd with requests for other jaundras.

    Went there for oysters and they were out at dinner time, so we decided to have an appetizer and they were out of have their app menu. We finally decided on a couple of beers and a salad, the beers were not cold and the salad had a dead fly in it. We didn’t stay long after that, very disappointed. Understanding the current supply issues they could have told us before we sat down. Unfortunate!

    Reserved a table, staff argued about technology and pay in front of us before being seated (super odd interaction). Food was fine. Ordered a mojito, tasted like chapstick. Ambiance on the river was cool if you like people watching. All in all, if you’re just hungry and looking for a particular thing off their menu, it’s fine. If it’s an event (birthday, anniversary, Important client meeting) you may want to look somewhere else.

    For a New Years Eve dinner- I was extremely disappointed we choose to come here out of every other restaurant on our to-try list. Most of all because the service was terrible! And they were out of the special entree.. Ribs! When a restaurant takes online reservations, they should know an estimate of how many people to prepare for, per hour. And when In doubt of this- always over buy and over prepare/plan. Our entrees came out at the same time the appetizer did- I HATE that! And the rice and broccoli served with the entrees was awful on both plates (I could have made better sides than what was served to us). The salmon was… ok. Just ok though. And to be honest- our waiter did not have very good hygiene. His odor was very strong and made for a very unappetizing experience when he did come to the table. For a $200 tab between 4 people… I will never return here. I would highly recommend not going there for any special occasion either. All around bad experience, bad food and bad service.

    Great spot if you’re looking to just smoke cigars with a cocktail in hand but not worth it for an actual meal. Bad service, bad food. All our shrimp were not deveined and it took almost an hour just for one dish (fruta da mare).
