|THE REVOLVING TOWER RESTAURANT
In 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 is included in the cost of a tower ticket.
In September 2007, Landry's converted the Eyes Over Texas Restaurant into one of its Chart House outlets.
