Early group dinner within easy distance of Riverwalk (San Antonio)

I've done my homework, but still need some help:

I'm arranging dinner for about 20 close colleagues (may be a few kids) that are all staying in the RW area. We're looking for early dinner (5:30-7:30pm) for about $20 food per person. My boss wants seafood, so I bite my tongue and search. But, you can see, Boudro's and Sandbar are a bit out of our range. Most of us are from San Diego, so Acenar would be like eating local. I read Chowhound, so I prefer to steer clear of tourist traps. I can get this group to walk a fair distance, maybe even river taxi, to something special.

As an alternative, suggestions for cocktails with light plates, not too noisy.

  1. Lanfeare2, I'm from San Diego and currenly in SA. Had dinner on Sunday at Boudro's. Fish was perfectly cooked, great garlic mashers, but the sauce on the fish was so salty it was almost inedible. Safe pass on this one.

      Thanks DiningDiva. With such feedback, I hope to avoid peeving off 20 friends and coworkers. Any good dining experiences in SA so far?

    2. Sushi Zushi 203 st. mary's, San antonio, Tx, 78205. The freshest sushi that I have ever tasted. The best sushi place in San Antonio by far. Try the christina roll with fresh yellowtail, escolar, cilantro, jalipeno, and yuzu.

        I just tried Azuca for the first time last weekend. I'd definitely go back! Their menu is available online. You can type in your hotel's address and google map it with walking directions to see if it is within a suitable proximity for you. We found it to be an easy walk and I remember a nice big table in the center of the room that should accomodate your group.

        If you search by my name, you will quickly find where the recommendation was made.

        I would respectfully disagree with DiningDiva on Boudro's though. It remains my top pick of restaurants in SA.
