    I like the restaurant like catering, I dont even have to get out of my seat to order. If you get there late enough there will be no one manning the entrance so you can practically enter for free.😄

    Love the salted caramel milkshake! Fried potato/cheese balls w/sour cream are also delicious! Seats are very comfy and staff is unobtrusive during movies which is a big detractor for me usually.

    This theatre is awesome. The preshow are clips, quips, and cartoons pertaining to the movie. No annoying advertisements. Staff are friendly and food is tasty w/ good portions. Pricey, but worth it.

    This place is legit. The beer is expensive so either go big and get the Drafthouse ESB or become a hipster and get the 2.50 Blue Ribbon. Not sure how that beer got an award. But anyway order a pizza.

    Remember if you work at H-E-B show them your H-E-B partner perk card at the ticket outlet and get a free large popcorn coupon when you buy a movie ticket and that's all alamo drafthouses in san anto!!

    Call ahead for show times. They never match their own website, let alone Google, Yahoo, etc. Seems like its intentional to get you to spend more at the bar before the movie starts. Smart, but lame.

    Use the parking garage! It's underground parking, around the left of the theater. Elevator right up to box office level. Sad I didn't know about this the previous dozen times I've been here.

    Show up before even the previews start, otherwise the food won't show up until half way through the movie and will be cold. (this happened to me for cowboys & aliens at 7 pm August 12)

    Nice to see ADH making a stronger presence in the San Antonio market. Keep an eye out for special features that don't fall into the your "normal" release category of hollywood blockbusters..super fun!

    The Philly cheese steak is delicious. Try it as a wrap! Also, the popcorn is awesome with bottomless refills! Get there early for a good seat for popular new releases.

    My usual go to place for movies! Great draft beer selection and they kick out talkers, chatters and anyone not interested in having a great movie experience.

    THE BEST movie theater in town. :) Show up a little early to see the previews that are either the same subject/genre as the movie you're seeing, or have the same actors.

    Food and beer is as expected for drafthouse but the theatres are disgusting. Went to go see star wars and it smelt like a dive bar. Skip this one and go to the stone oak location

    The cheese plate is legit, but could use a few more pieces of toasted bread and a knife for goodness sakes..it was delicious, but kind of a mess!!! Lol

    This location is the newest of the San Antonio locations. In case you feel like changing up the scene from the more "rustic looking" ones in town.

    Have a pizza & a beer with your movie, but be sure to check-in before your movie starts... The Drafthouse is a true "no texting" theater!

    Ask your server/usher about specials that may not be on the menu, you'll be pleasantly surprised about what they may have to offer!!

    The entertainment before the movie is awesome. This theater is preferable because it's a bit newer than the Westlakes location.

    Apparently, if you purchase your tickets online you can just bring your printed order slip instead of picking up ticket slips at the counter!

    Try the "wild mushroom burger" and substitute the cheese for Swiss and add bacon. Your taste buds will thank you.

    Best place to watch movies, get your grub and drink on and not having screaming kids or people on their phones all the time. Strict no phone policy.

    Great service! Nice, fast, and very conscious of ducking to get out of the way. 👍🏼

    There is a very good reason for the low temperature with the A/C, it prevents the food odor to be overwhelming

    Excellent midnight special showings of the big pop culture movies like Harry Potter, Twilight, etc. The waiters dress up and they decorate the theaters.

    If your a beer drinker, you need to buy a Growler! Save some $$$ and keep your beer cold.

    They have Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA on tap. Get that if you love your taste buds at all.

    Invest in a Growler. Holds 2 liters and can be refilled for the cost of a pitcher.
