About the restaurant
"Where craft meets quality. An evening at Sidecar, located in the heart of New Braunfels at the historic Prince Solms Inn, is like stepping back in time. The ambiently lit speakeasy features an extensive whiskey selection, live jazz and fantastic tapas. Whether you're enjoying the live music downstairs or imbibing in one of the private party rooms upstairs, the beauty of the building does not disappoint."

We tried almost everything on the menu. The food was a good value and creative. Out of the samosas, deviled eggs, crudo, and jerk shrimp we liked the crudo the least but mostly because the rest of the ingredients overwhelmed the fish. For the price point of that dish 5 tiny slivers of hamachi were just not enough to overcome the orange segments and coconut milk. The atmosphere was very nice, particularly after dark when the lights were dimmed. It created a great vibe. We will be back for one of the monthly tastings or classes along with more date nights.

About the restaurant
Comming Soon-

Fiume - in English meaning river - is a restaurant concept that merges the authentic flavors of Italy with traditional Texas ingredients. The artisan, Texas-crafted pizza incorporates local flavors that highlight Neapolitan-style pizza in what we define as Texapoletana.
Fiume - also once a city in Italy - was known as a cultural melting pot in the height of its existence. Similarly, the San Antonio River is the core of our dynamic and culturally diverse city of San Antonio. Our vision and menu are exemplary of an elevated dining experience revered for its deep local roots and hyperlocal culinary craftsmanship

About the restaurant
Historic Texas Country Icehouse & Premium River Walk Patio

Nestled on the edge of the historic La Villita Village is a very special place, the oldest two story rock building in Bexar county built by Otto Bombach in the mid-19th century. A pleasant surprise to behold! The Prost Haus, German by design but Texas country by application. Admire the museum like spectacle of the interior restaurant and bar architecture and slide outside to the most beautiful patio on the San Antonio River Walk. Live country music radiates as guests indulge in cool Texas brews or hand-crafted colorful cocktails. The menu items are made from scratch daily and offer delicious delicacies from hand pulled giant pretzels, Texas corned beef Reubens, and mouthwatering USDA steaks.

This is the best patio on The San Antonio River Walk to wind down, enjoy Texas country music, and watch the best sunsets in the southern USA.

Prost Y’all!

Great food and fun atmosphere. Not saying I am getting old but the live music was a little loud for me but those younger than me were having a great time with it. Oveall very enjoyable experience with good food, reasonable RiverWalk pricing, and a great view for people watching the Walk
