I have lived in New Braunfels for almost 6 years and never been to a Saltgrass. The food was surprisingly good and affordable. The service was quite nice and the view of the San Marcos rivwer is excellent!

Visited this restaurant (located in San Marcos) Friday January 29, 2016. I pointed to the restaurant in San Marcos as I use to visit the one in Pearland, TX with no problems (at this moment). What trigger this review is the fact the portion of food, specific for the Salmon grill plate, was terrible (I calculate less than 5 oz).... More

Everyone was very friendly. The salad and soup were great. Then came the steaks! Wow! They were awesome, and cooked to perfection. Bonus was sitting by the windows and looking at the water and the birds!

We had a great dinner here. Our salads were fresh and tasty and the steaks were flavorful and cooked perfectly. Our server was friendly and very efficient. We really enjoyed Saltgrass. And the beautiful view of the river was a nice bonus.

Went there with my family back in early 2015. When they came to visit in Dec. 2015 we met there for dinner. This time, we waited. My uncle looked at his watch and said "It's been 10 minutes and they haven't even taken our drink order yet. Is there another steak house we can go to?" Long story short, I... More

Most Salt Grass Steakhouses are the same, but this one has a wonderful view of the river. During summer, it would be a great people watching place. We had friendly and knowledgeable service and the food was very good as well.

This is the second time we had had our family there, daughters and son-in-laws and grandchildren. The food is good. Our service was well above the 20 percent level.

We went here with a large group of 19 and EVERY ONE LOVED it. Steaks were perfect...appetizers began the evening with the awesome Sampler Platter! The service was outstanding and led by Gus. The two servers met our every need and we had a truly wonderful dining experience! We will be back!

Situated on the site of the old ice house,restaurant and especially the deck area, sit atop the big water fall where the Aquarena springs flows over to create the San Marcos river.All the Saltgrass chain do a great job ,and this one is up to par.Great atmosphere for cocktails and a steak ,in a very unique and beautiful setting.

The Saltgrass is located right on a waterfall with a swimming hole beneath it. You can sit outside on the very nice deck, or inside by the glass wall, and watch the waterfall, the swimmers, and the people just lounging on the grass. The food is varied and good and the prices are reasonable. I don't like their wine selection... More
