First trip to a Saltgrass! Loved the view of the river. Great waiter who was very informative and eager to help. Best steak I think I have ever eaten.

We've been to Saltgrass in San Marcos on a previous trip and it was a great experience. This time they didn't put their best foot forward. We started the night off badly when we walked in on a Sunday night at 5:30 (yes, geriatric early) and I asked if we could get a table by the window (since the place... More
