The most striking thing about this Salt Grass is the location on the San Marcos River. Great view of the swimming hole below. As for the food - it's a good choice for a steak. Prices aren't too high and the food is better than most of the other chain steak places like Outback or Montana Mikes. On par with... More

While at Regional Band the students chose to eat here again, apparently they are here last year. The wait staff was great and worked well with our two tables, one all students and a bit loud, the other hungry adults really well. Out food was hot, cooked to perfection and delicious. We will return.

I have been to this particular restaurant a couple of times and both times walked away feeling slightly disappointed. The positives are that there is a nice outdoor deck and a nice view of a waterway outside. I would warn people this is a double edged sword, great in cooler weather, terrible in hot weather. I was seated by the... More

I haven't been to one of these in a long time. Stopped in after Christmas shopping at the outlet because of the convenience. Their menu has a lot of items that I don't really eat, fried foods, blooming onion is wonderful but not so healthy, service was good, food was decent.

Our favorite restaurant. The staff is so supper friendly and always accommodating. If you are celebrating something special they go out of their way to help make the celebration much more memorable. The food is fantastic. And the scenery is fantastic. Whether watching the swimmers in the spring or summer or watching the water in the fall or winter it... More

I was anticipating writing a very positive review of Saltgrass based on our first two visits there...but the last visit kinda blew that idea out of the water. Excellent first two times, in all respects. But the third time was definitely not the charm. Let's see, so many problems. First, outsides temps were cold, and we were seated in a... More

Nice view of San Marcos River and good local taste food. Take into consideration that cooking will take time.
