Second best is the food! This Saltgrass Steakhouse is located immediately next to the second oldest dam in the State of Texas. It was created by General Edward Burleson in 1848 when he dammed up the headwaters of the San Marcos River and thereby formed Spring Lake. So the view of the water fall is spectacular along with the sound... More

Restaurant smelled musty. Food was overly salted. Everyone in the group had indigestion after the meal.

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.
