I have eaten at other Saltgrass restaurants around the country and they never fail to provide an excellent meal. The steak and grilled shrimp was perfect. Steak melted in your mouth and the shrimp was seasoned just right. But in the end there was a surprise. We ordered the chocolate cake for dessert. Should have a just ordered one and... More

Sits right on the lake with Aquarena springs. We sat outside and loved it! The food is pretty much like any other Saltgrass which is pretty good. We had good service and enjoyed watching kids play in the waterfall coming over the dam.

We were from out of town so we were pleasantly surprised by the river views from the restaurant. The food was fresh and well prepared. Our server was friendly but food service was slow.

This is one of the nicer saltgrass. The location has a great view of the river. And the steaks were spot on. The BBQ shrimp is awesome. But!!! The service was very slow. Spent almost two and half hours in there. From the time I showed up. And the parking is limited. All in all it was OK.

We sat on the patio overlooking the water. Brandon was our waiter and he took care of every detail. He recommended the avocado crab stack as an appetizer and the perfect wine for dinner. The entire experience was great.

We had reservations for Mother's Day and when we got there 5 minutes early, our table was waiting on us. Our server, Parker, was very attentive and cordial, even though he had a couple of other large tables. The food and service were both excellent.

Great food ambience and service. Would definitely return. It overlooks the water and you can eat outside if you like and can walk down by the rivers edge

I stayed at the bar, so that limits my review a bit. The beer was real cold and the bartender was very social able. I order two meals, one for me and the other for my service dog. We both complimented the chef. Just a nice place for lunch.

Went here with a group that got "points" for coming here. Very nice location along ther river - but average food. I grew up in a rural area eating chicken fried steaks so tender that I easily could cut with a fork - not so here. My steak was so tough I could barely get a steak knife through it... More

Terrific service. Great waiter who didn't interrupt much. And the food was flavorful and plenty for the price.
