What RiverWalk Restaurant has a summer time happy hour? Biga!


What RiverWalk Restaurant has a daily happy hour? Biga!  (Ends Sept. 5th ’18)

Now that summer is upon us, you may be asking yourself “what Riverwalk restaurant has a daily happy hour?”

50% off select appetizers and wine by the glass daily until 6:30

Well, if you’re a “Super Privileged Foodie” than you already know that 50% pricing is a perfect way to end a work day or kick off a night out on the town!

Every day from 5pm-6:30 the Biga Bar is offering most appetizers and wine by the glass at half-price!
Even better, we’ll have some featured cocktails for $6!

SPF 50 Happy Hour will be all summer long at the Biga Bar 5pm-6:30.  Prefer seating in the dining room?  Well,

no problem!  The same SPF 50 promotion can be enjoyed 5:30-6:30 at a table in the dining room or seated on the patio.

Bar opens at 5pm and seating is on a first come first serve basis.  Dining room opens at 5:30 and reservations are encouraged (walk-ins usually easily accommodated, the earlier, the better!).  Promotions ends at 6:30, discount only applies to select items ordered no later than 6:30.

If you find yourself comfortable at the bar and decide to have a full-on dinner look to our 3 Course Summer Prix Fix Menu.  Available all night at the bar, this menu offers a choice of soup or salad for the first course followed with 2 entrees and desserts from which to select. 

..Think that 3 course seems like a lot of food, especially after snacking during happy hour?  Most of our entrees are available in half portions when seated at the bar.

Looking for a Restaurant Nearby With Great Reviews? Try Biga!

Thank you for your wonderful review.   We know there must be a lot of restaurants nearby .  We appreciate choosing ours.  Thanks for the 5 stars on Google!

“If there was a way for me to give 6 or 7 stars, I would! First, the restaurant’s ambience is nice… elegant but not stuffy. But the food was out of this world! Every item we ordered looked like it was out of a magazine and the special ingredients made the flavors of the dishes so memorable and delicious. Each course was a new, exciting and wonderful experience. I’ve never eaten a meal I have enjoyed more. Last, what made the experience was the service from our waiter, Rob. He was knowledgeable and was very helpful with suggestions. He seemed to be right there before we even knew we needed him. It’s not often you get that level of service. His goal was to ensure we had the best dining experience possible. None of the attitude you can sometimes get with high-end restaurants. Now, with all that being said, if you enjoy the full experience with a cocktail, salad/appetizer, wine, entree, dessert, and coffee, you can expect to pay a pretty penny. But – for me – it was totally worth it. There is no way I’ll return to San Antonio without coming back to Biga.”
