“A Gem”

Excellent service, food, atmosphere. Seating inside or on the patio, you can't go wrong.

“Fantastic venue, pretty good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Visited the Saltgrass for the first time for dinner. The food was definitely OK, but not great. The salad was maybe the best, the baked sweet potato was pretty good, and the salmon was average. We liked our waitress, who was fetchingly awkward and eager to please. Our friends definitely thought that the food was good, but also didn't think that it was tops. The view, however, was wonderful. We had a window seat overlooking the river.

“Salt Grass, San Marcos Lunch...yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

First of all the Salt Grass is right outside the San Marcos Campus. We ate there because our youngest had a recital on the campus and we decided that if it didn't look too busy we would eat there for lunch. Honestly, we almost walked away once we were inside because although there were apparently plenty of empty tables the hosting station was most inefficient. We stood around for 15 minutes before the hostess even approached us to get our names. She was able to seat us within 5 minutes of that but it was a strange experience in that we were never acknowledged or given any reason for being ignored. There were about 3 other groups behind us waiting for her, too. However, the food was good and the service was friendly and timely. It is right over the river and if you sit towards the back or on the patio you get a good view of everyone enjoying the river. I recommend the fried mushrooms. They are not the best I've ever had but they were still very tasty. The prices were about average and the salad was fresh and crisp. I give this a 4 in that there was no complaint about our food or our service and the prices are reasonable.

“Just Another Chain Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

But the view and atmosphere are amazing !!!
The service is good too.
The ribeye was ok...it just didn't seem to have a flavorfull taste. Like most chains, they seem to not know the difference between med-rare and rare.
Overall it is a great place to visit...the steaks though are not worth the price.
