The two RV Gypsies enjoyed a couple of restaurants
plus The Tower of the Americas
in San Antonio, Texas
May 6, 2015

Restaurants the two RV Gypsies enjoyed while in San Antonio.

Below: The Tower of the Americas is a 750-foot observation tower/restaurant located at HemisFair Park on the southeastern portion of Downtown San Antonio, Texas. The Tower is located in the middle of HemisFair Park and has an observation deck that is accessible by elevator for a fee. In addition, there is also a lounge and revolving restaurant at the top of the tower that provides panoramic views of the city. A bit more about The Tower of The Americas can be found in the San Antonio sub-menu below.

history bookIn 2004, Landry's Restaurants, Inc. won the bid for a 15-year lease to manage and operate the property for its owner, the City of San Antonio. Landry's undertook an extensive $8 million renovation of the existing restaurant and lounge and observation deck and added a 4-D film "ride" called "Skies Over Texas," that gives the history of Texas in a film format. Additionally, Landry's spent another $4 million to add approximately 200% more space for ground level attractions such as a gift shop and cafe. Renovations were completed and the tower re-opened with the new Eyes Over Texas Restaurant, Bar 601 and the Flags Over Texas Observation Deck on June 21, 2006. The restaurant rotates slowly, and observation deck entry was included in the cost of the tower tickets for the two RV Gypsies.

In September 2007, Landry's converted the Eyes Over Texas Restaurant into one of its Chart House Outlets.

Prior to Landry's, Frontier Enterprises (owner of San Antonio-based Jim's Restaurants) operated the Tower of the Americas' restaurant for more than three decades.
