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.

Took our family there for a birthday dinner nervous. We had a good server who was knowledgeable and prompt. We got the strip steaks and ride year. They were prepared as we asked. The salads and sides were very good. We sat by the window so we could watch the waterfall and river. It was a very pleasant experience.

Always entertaining watching the river rats in the San Marcos river. Food is pretty good but the staff is better. Location could not be better and have never had to wait for a table, inside or out.

Good restaurant for family outing. Food good. We asked to be re-seated to a different table with no problem. Being a college town and right off campus, could cause problem on weekends. Get there early and stay late.
