By breathing new life into a true piece of Texas history, Boiler House Texas Grill and Wine Garden is a beautiful fusion of past and present-day charm. Located in the revitalized Pearl District, Boiler House provides a taste of artfully prepared, gourmet Texas Hill Country fare partnered with an ever-evolving wine list of more than 120 labels, and a robust list of 25 craft beers from all over Texas. Our craft cocktail menu boasts local whiskeys, traditional bourbons, Scotches, añejo tequilas, and mezcals all created with Texas in mind. Our Executive Chef Jarrad Gwaltney forged a menu inspired by seasonal ingredients from local farms and markets, thus creating brunch, lunch, and dinner menus that form a unique niche in the culinary scene of San Antonio.
No more than five to ten minutes from the San Antonio Riverwalk, the Alamo, and downtown San Antonio, Boiler House sits just next door to the Culinary Institute of America.
Housed in the 130-year-old building of what was once the original boiler house of the Pearl Brewery Complex, Boiler House’s space is 6,200 square feet of living, breathing San Antonio history. The bulk of the original architecture remains intact, with our kitchen built right into the original brewery’s boilers.
Original fixtures are positioned throughout the main dining room, set amongst a mix of industrial-styled cast iron and exposed brick. If you care to indulge in a beautiful San Antonio sunset, we also have our outdoor patios and balconies just overour wine garden for those rare, and perfect Texas evenings.
Chef Gwaltney has been in the kitchen at Boiler House since 2014 and today he leads the kitchen as they prepare everything from scratch—his team does not even have a walk-in cooler. At one of the busiest restaurants in San Antonio, Chef conceives and executes lunch, dinner and weekend brunches in the restaurant on and for off-site events of up to 500 people. Chef Gwaltney’s signature dishes include duck mole with chorizo corn pudding and espresso-braised brisket. His style of cuisine is rooted in South Texas comfort food with wild game and northern Mexican influences. Chef Gwaltney is an industry veteran, as he’s been in a kitchen for more than 26 years.
