Food at The Pearl

The Pearl is a multi-use complex created from the abandoned Pearl Brewery and now full of locals and tourists at all times of the day/evening. There are many great restaurants in the complex. These are a few of our personal favorites.

Farm-to-table American food with great atmosphere. Their fried chicken is amazing, and if you take the kids along, they will be able to make their own pretzel at the table and then eat it after it's baked.

While it's not the best Asian food in San Antonio, it is probably the best Asian restaurant atmosphere in San Antonio - and the food is good. Also, it's in the old Pearl Brewery complex, making it a sightseeing excursion as well as a meal.

Local brewpub with multiple rotating house beers, wide menu, and a great location – it is on River Road and overlooks the ducks and the Boerne river. Many people buy bread and feed the ducks on the way to dinner. Note that it gets pretty crowded, can have a long wait, and the service isn’t very fast. It’s worth it, but make sure you allow enough time.

Don’t let the location fool you. This place is in a modest shopping center, but we think it’s the best food in Boerne. Fine dining and $$$ price point, but worth every penny.
