Excellent steak. Lovely, rustic atmosphere. Terrific staff. The Blanco river runs past, so don't neglect some time outside as well as inside this wonderful restaurant which resides on the Texas State University campus boarder. Great photo opportunities!!! If you're looking for a weekend get-away between Austin and San Antonio, make sure you enjoy at least one meal here. . .... More

This is a great restaurant by any measure. The ambience is an A++. The view is an A++. The feel of the place is A++. The interior is awesome, the deck is breathless, and the place is too much fun too describe. We were a party of nine, ages 4-65, and we had great service, great drinks, great time. I... More

What a great place to eat and real good meal. We were on a tour of Texas. I recommend a window seat or outside it's located on the river with a waterfall. We both had steak and they were so tender and good.

Nothing bad about our experience, but nothing to brag about. There are better places to eat in San Marcos

Family of 7. Most of the food was just OK. We ended up sending chicken strips back to the kitchen because they tasted/smelled like fish. They were taken off our bill by management. prices are a little high for the food you get.

We have eaten at a lot of Salt Grass restaurants. The patio was nice with a beautiful view. We were seated promptly and received our drinks. It took a bit to order our food and have it served. ( it was early afternoon so the place was not busy ) Our steaks were fatty and tough. We asked for medium... More

Started out well, drinks came quite quickly, order appetizers they arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Then after taking the entree orders we proceeded to wait for over an hour for them. Waiter assured us... More

Been here several times, and have enjoyed it !! BUT this time, something was off. The service was slow and inconsistence. I ordered my filet steak as medium, and it came out medium well and dry. The waitress was sweet, but was too overwhelming with kind words, over and over. I will come back if in San Marcos again, but... More

The company I work for decided to have our Christmas dinner here. I enjoyed how we had a separate room to the side of the restaurant. There was about 40 total and we fit prefectly. Our server was awesome. Very patient with all of us. Two things I didn't enjoy too much. 1. The way the tables were set up.... More
