Always a good meal!

Ate an early lunch there on Sunday before heading back home. It does get quite busy on Sundays, so I got there before the lunch rush. I got there at 11:20 and they were seating people despite them not opening until 11:30, which I thought was very nice. This is on the pricier side for a meal... read more

Food and service was great! Sitting on the patio was nice but loud but duh there is a waterfall underneath you. So that is understandable :)

I know this is a steak place, but the views were just too pretty to pass up. We were able to snag an outside table and enjoy the view of the clear water spring for lunch. The service was good, the restaurant and bathrooms clean, the location was awesome but the food.... that's another story. I ordered chicken fingers with... More

Had not been there in years as this used to be another restaurant. Wait staff was excellent as we just went in for a cold one after hiking at a couple nearby parks. Sat on the impressive deck and was entertained by the water activities downstream from the waterfalls.

We dined at this restaurant twice during our stay in San Marcos. The food was tasty, great salad, cheesesteak sandwich, chicken, and hill country sausage. Staff was really friendly, efficient, and kept our tea glasses filled. Will definitely eat here again and recommend to friends. Oh, and did I mention the beautiful view of the San Marcos river from the... More

The service was great. The atmosphere is nice overlooking the river. The waitress was friendly. The food was another story! We ordered 2 steaks medium rare with butter on top. The steaks were not warm enough for the butter to melt! We ordered mixed vegetables and the broccoli was brown and smelled really bad! I can't believe this was allowed... More

Let me say that I was just impressed up and down with this venue. I was informed it was a chain and outside of some of the generic decor of a chain restaurant this place was run like a small family restaurant - a big plus for me. The service was great. The server knew his menu inside and out... More

I recently received a Saltgrass gift card and invited a couple of friends here for lunch. When the bill came (about $40) I presented the gift card only to be told that they are not accepting gift cards right now. Something about their Internet being down. The manager on duty came out and, in a rather brusque manner, demanded a... More

Steaks were cooked to perfection. Wait staff was very good. It's always relaxing to watch the river flow.
