About the Restaurant

Growing up in Texas, captivated by the fragrance of mesquite smoke and beef on an open grill, Mark Bohanan harbored a dream to some day open a classic steakhouse that served the best beef in the state. And that’s what he did in 2002, renovating the second floor of a fine old building on a downtown street in San Antonio, a block from the city’s famous Riverwalk.

“The first day I walked the space that is now Bohanan’s, I resolved to preserve the original floor during renovation. The heart pine floorboards are quarter-sawn in eighteen-foot lengths… you just can’t find flooring like that any more. There it was, a solid foundation of quality and tradition for a steakhouse based on the same principles.” — Mark Bohanan

Built in the late 1800s, our building has housed a gentlemen’s haberdashery, shoe store, millinery shop, ladies fine clothier and an architecture firm.

Today, Executive Chef/Owner Mark Bohanan has written a new chapter in the storied history of Texas steakhouses at Bohanan’s Prime Steaks & Seafood. Please join us for mesquite-grilled center cuts of prime aged beef, Japanese Akaushi steaks, seafood flown in fresh, an award-winning wine list and flawless service.
