“Our favorite local "eating up" place”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

My lady usually wants to go here when we feel like having a very good meal in a very nice place, but don't want to go "all uptown" (read R&P's).
The steaks are really good, and there is a rich variety of other meals for your friends. They even have a few vegan dishes!
Occasionally they miss on cooking the steaks (well-done is not medium) but every time the waitstaff has been prompt to correct the error, and a manager has shown up to apologize. How often does that happen?
Service is very good, but it is a little dizzying to have one person take your drink order, another your food order, another deliver the food, and another bring the check. That's really overdoing it!
Atmosphere: just enough dark wood to make it comfortable but not oppressive. Recommended.

“Great prime rib”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Saltgrass, Galveston ....had a great meal here. Ordered the prime rib and added grilled shrimp. Wonderful. Good salad, hot bread and very attentive waitress. Sat by the window looking out over the ocean.

“An average meal but a ton of food”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

This was in walking distance from the Galvez hotel, so it was easy to get to. The service was Texas friendly and the food was abundant. Too bad it wasn't just a little tastier.

“Great Steaks”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

This is a great, relaxing place on the beach and the steaks are excellant, however, the prices are alittle high. But, overall, great quality, good service and an excellant view of the beach!

“Always the same”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

It's good staple steak house food at every one we've been to. The steaks aren't great, but other stuff is good. Not a great place by any means, but if you want a normal meal that you'll be sure to enjoy, this is a good place.
