Housed in a structure built in 1847, this rustic restaurant was originally used as a residence and store by German immigrant Otto Bombach. It's a historically protected site, with antique brass lights, wooden booths, and a smattering of Old West antiques. Specialties include center-cut filet mignon, bone-in prime strip loin, and fresh Norwegian salmon. Terrace dining gives diners views of the San Antonio River, and a full bar reminds you that the spot once served as a saloon. Expect the same dedication to excellence as next-door sister restaurant the Fig Tree (they have the same owner).

Whenever we have filet mignon, we compare it to the filet at Mortons in Manhattan, our "gold standard." The filet mignon at the Little Rhein was better than that. Fantastic!
