Its back, but will it live up to the hype ? – Well the place just re-opened, it looks great inside, very inviting and the drink menu looks interesting. Didnt care for the homemade ketchup or my puled pork sandwich, so lunch there again wont be happening. Saw the new owner on the way out, didnt even smile, say hello or thanks for coming..hopefully when I come back to try some drinks off the clock the rest of the staff is more friendly. You should try at least once.

Once was a nice bar – At one time it was a fun place to hang out out, that would have been in the late 80's to early 90'. Then time caught up to it and the people changed and found other places to go to and not a lot of people hanged out there. Now it has closed for a remolding but has yet to open. was suppose to open in the Summer of 2008, but still hasn't. maybe the economy hs also caught up with that idea of it ever reopening.

It's one of the longest & oldest bars in San Antonio. The atmosphere is casual, and the drinks are cheap. There's also a small patio that overlooks the RiverWalk. I love going here. Staff is always friendly.

best drink prices in town – Great bar for cheap drinks and entertainment. I had a blast, where in town can you get 2 dollar well drinks and 1.75 long neck miller lite. The 79 foot bar is a must see, just amazing, feel sorry for the bartenders on a busy night. The staff was not that friendly and some of them can not speak english. I know that me and my wife had a older man I could not understand a word he said, and he talked so loud that my wife wanted to leave. I observed him yelling at the bartenders, just hope you don't get him to wait on you. I think his name was George, not sure. No bar stools, was a draw back we wanted to sit at the bar. The place is a little run down, the bathrooms are real old and didn't appear to be ever cleaned. Rough crowd later at night. Mostly local hispanics frequent from my observations. We met the manager a guy named Earl what a nice man and very friendly. This could really be a hot spot if they could clean up the crowd and put a few dollars into the place. Just stop by and see the bar have a beer or a drink and move on unless you can speak fluent spanish.

User review by chizzuck – Only nefarious locals go here. Not recommended for northerners or passers-by.

This bar breaks all kinds of records. – The Bar This Riverwalk locale houses the longest wooden bar in Texas, and in a state that's known both for its bragging and its drinking, that's quite an accomplishment. At 79 feet, the Esquire Tavern's old-school stool counter is host to two other records, neither quite so official as the first. For women, the walk along the bar has the reputation of being the longest ogling gantlet of any bar in Texas. And, according to the Dallas Morning News, the bar can hold an astounding 5,973 longneck bottles of Lone Star, which, being the "National Beer of Texas," is sold in abundance. The Skinny While the historic Esquire may reside on the Riverwalk, expect only one major concession to tourist trappings: Mariachis stroll the interior, offering to serenade drinkers for a fee. Otherwise, this is no cushy spot to toss back a few. If you're looking for savvy and glamour on the river, try Swig. Esquire's crowds exhibit a trifle more local color.
