“Corporate service by the numbers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This restaurant was close to our hotel, and the parking lot was packed with cars, but it was a snare and a delusion.
We were greeted nicely at the door and brought to a nice table. From the beginning it was a little loud, with the people talking and the music playing. The menu has a lot of good food mentioned, but this is Texas, so you have to have steak, don't you?
We ordered the prime rib, which comes with soup or salad and Shiner Bock beer bread. We added macaroni and cheese, which is extra. Indeed, sides are extra and run the price up quickly. My husband's wine choice was good, with both body and complexity. The meat was good, but not memorable, the salad was ordinary, but the macaroni and cheese had this weird smoky taste, that was not something I would ever order again.
Our server was sweet, but a little overenthusiastic in making menu selections. At the end of the service, the corporate nature was apparent, as our waitress pressed us to join the Landry's "club".
We didn't have dessert, as we decide to go to our hotel later that evening for it.
This place is okay, but we probably won't be returning. It's a Landry chain, and compared to the local places we ate at on this trip it came off badly.

“late lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I stop at Saltgrass when I travel mainly because I can get a great meal late in afternoon and don't have to worry about anything setting around! A must have …are the onion strings OMG! Have been often tempted to just have them. Always a treat have never been disappointed.

“Great again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Visited Saltgrass 2 nights in a row. The second we brought friends. Steaks did not disappoint ! Had strip steaks, cowboy ribeye, filet and tilapia. Salads and dressings were great. Onion strings are tasty. The steaks were all wonderful. Seasoned and cooked to perfection. Friend thought his filet was as good as he had eaten anywhere. :) The tilapia on the other hand had too much breading. Would not order it again . I would not recommend ordering fish at a steak house:( We will look forward to visiting again.

“Oh my!! --yummmmm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

We had never been to Saltgrass before. - ( none local) saw the ratings. Thought we'd give it a try. I had the pork chop. Nice salad to start. Followed by a perfectly seasoned, cooked pork chop and fried onions. Probably the best grilled chop I've ever had. Spouse had the bone in ribeye. It was awesome. Friend had the sirloin. Was very pleased. Friendly service in a great atmosphere. We will be back:)
