The Old San Francisco Steakhouse has been a fixture in the San Antonio, Texas restaurant scene since 1968. It was one of San Antonio’s very first Steakhouses, and has provided local residents, visitors, and dignitaries from around the world a dining experience so special it has become legendary. Throughout its forty year history, the Old San Francisco has been a regular recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, including “#1 Steakhouse” and “Best Steak” in San Antonio, and “Texas’ Top 10 Steakhouses”. From the moment you enter the restaurant, your visual senses will be overloaded. When you see our Barbary Coast architecture, the décor, which includes historical pieces, impressive artwork, and items of lore and legend, you'll realize that something special is at hand. In fact, there's a LOT of history at the Old San Francisco Steakhouse. Many of our showpieces are of museum quality. Be sure to ask to see the western display, which features authentic cowboy and Native American artifacts from that bygone era. The original Western Display is now on permanent display at the Witte Museum of Natural History, here in San Antonio. Also, be sure to ask to see the original photo, taken so long ago, of Gussie Lee.
