My first visit to Saltgrass after living in Texas over 10 years. This restaurant is good. It's just not great. The atmosphere is stellar. The steak (Ribeye anyway) flavorful beyond the seasonings. All else fell a little below target. It was a Wednesday and it was busy. They need more help on the... read more

Great staff, fast service, good food. Have been here 3 times on out of town trips in 2015 and have always had a great experience both from a service standpoint and great food.

Loved sitting on the gorgeous patio near the waterfall. Not a typical SG. Old icehouse/gristmill. We ordered off lunch menu. For $11.50 I got a house salad (small) and a tiny piece of dried up grilled chicken. My husband got an even smaller piece of chicken because it came with two miniscule pieces of sausages and instead of doing an... More

Went there for my birthday due to the LOCATION, and the steak.....what makes this Saltgrass Steakhouse unique is the location; at the site of the old gristmill next to the historic dam that formed Aquarena Springs. I just love sitting out in the patio watching, and listening to the water roll over the dam. We had great service...the young lady... More

Stopped for a snack after the glass bottom boat tour. Neat place by the water. Excellent service. Waiter was extremely courteous. Enjoyed.

We thought we'd give this place a try and were very pleased with both the food and service. We have actually eaten here 3 of the 5 nights we were in town. Each night was as good as the first. Prices are good too. We will be back here again when we are in town.

We have eaten at this location several times. Also have eaten at other Saltgrass Steakhouses and they are very consistent with above average food. Great place for parties and groups.

Love going here. Great atmosphere and ambience. Right on the San Marcos River. Great food and yummy drinks. Try the quest and chips and tacos if not a steak.

I've visited Saltgrass Steakhouse locations everywhere and the management at this location is definitely trying to step up the level of service. While not 5-star service, the staff was definitely stepping up the game and showing little nuances of attempting to move this direction. As with most Landry chain locations, the food is usually good and the overall experience is... More
