We ate here on Christmas Day! The service was awful! We waited 20 minutes before even being acknowledged by our server, Christopher. When he did notice us, we were told he needed to tend to another table first. Our drinks never got refiled. He did ask if we wanted more bread, but it never came. He also never checked back... More

We went to the Kemah Boardwalk for dinner and fireworks. Both were great. One hour wait for a table so we ate at the bar where there was not a wait. Bar service team were outstanding. Our glasses were never empty and meal was very satifying. Definitely would go back.

It was VERY crowded on the night we were there, so we say at the bar. Food was good, could use a little more seasoning, but good nonetheless. Service was excellent. This is a beautifully decorated restaurant with a relaxed & casual atmosphere.

We had dinner here after an afternoon of sailing. The restaurant was pretty full when we arrived, but we were seated immediately. Our server, Ian, was polite and efficient. Although we only ordered salads, service was prompt and attentive, as if we had ordered the best in the house. Very pleased with our visit.

This place is always mid to upper great! I have never had a bad experience here. Service is good, not great, especially during evening rush. Food freshness and plenty of tea delivered

I ate at this restaurant on Oct 17th. It was a little pricy, but my NY strip was absolutely one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. Cooked perfectly medium rare, and so tender and delicious. Wonderful place to eat.

My wife and I had lunch at the Saltgrass while on vacation in the Houston area. Being late September and just at the start of lunch time, the restaurant wasn't crowded in the least. We were met at the front door and taken to a table up front overlooking the water; the view was beautiful. Our server was so friendly... More

Doesn't hurt that the venue is full of other attractions... nice place to stop for a pretty fair steak dinner while enjoying the boardwalk. Good service, dinner is prepared as requested (and both tasty & filling), and the overall experience is a good value. Have been here several times, never left disappointed.
