Steakhouse
18 Oaks focuses on outstanding quality of meats and seafood prepared with style and expertise. Food is masterfully prepared showing a sensibility of season leveraging the best products in Texas. The Menu gracefully flows from a modern breakfast to a lunch menu of American flair with a splattering of steakhouse favorites to a classic steakhouse in the evenings. Entrees feature skillfully prepared premium steaks and seafood with your choice of sauces...located within the majestic grounds of the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa. 18 Oaks not only is the center of activity in the TPC San Antonio Club House, but we represent the highest level of commitment to locally produced, organic ingredients in the area, leveraging the strong relationships developed with local farmers, ranchers, winemakers and brewers. The design is a delicate balance of warm tones and cool textures that reflect a lively, refined and inviting space.

The food was excellent and our waiter (Luis) was excellent as well. The staff was very friendly. The cocktails were reasonable but the food was kind of pricey. The restaurant has a nice ambience. I would highly recommend this restaurant to our friends.

All was good except for the 3rd time the payment system did not work well. I use Marriott gift cards and the system had trouble processing. A little disconcerting at the end to the meal to pay, leave a tip and the system does not work well.

The service was great. One of us got a fillet & it was cooked perfectly. I had the halibut and it was over cooked. The sauce was heavy for the fish & the broccolini was swimming in the sauce.

Ok steak. Old and reheated chop. Good sides. Great service. There are better steak houses for the price.

The atmosphere and server was great however the steak didn't have any seasoning. It taste as if they just grilled the steak and served it. Mac and cheese was great!

The food, the service and the atmosphere were absolutely perfect. The 44 Farms steaks were some of the best I have ever had. Cooked to perfection with unbelievable flavor. The waiter recommended some sides to go with the meal, and they were all great. Very creamy mashed potato’s and the truffle creamed corn was one of a kind. We celebrated our 26th anniversary here, but I will definitely come back more than once a year.

This is a very elegant place to have a special dinner. The steaks were fantastic and cooked perfectly. We had three different cuts and cook temperatures and they were all delicious and correct. I ordered the heirloom tomatoes as a starter. My husband ordered a fine glass of pinot noir and I had a sip. We also ordered sides of brussel sprouts/spicey, and mac and cheese/creamy, the fellas shared a charcuterie board which they enjoyed. For dessert we shared the bread pudding (in the photo) and the 18 Oaks dessert coffee. The service was great. Early on a weeknight not crowded and we felt spoiled. Thank you to our kids for the Marriott gift card for Christmas♡ $$$$

Our Christmas dinner sponsored by the TPC San Antonio club was outstanding! We could not have been more pleased by our food or the menu items we picked out. The chef and wait staff came by to ask how our dining experiences was and were most helpful in making our selections including the best wine to accompany our menu selections.

Salmon, steak, and crabcakes were all good but way overpriced. Unique $17 Honey Bager cocktail was good, but overpriced for size and content. Knowing this, I would recommend to anyone looking to spend way too much on some good food.

I was SO excited to dine at 18 Oaks for my anniversary. My husband and I scoped out the menu ahead of time and we knew exactly what we wanted. My husband ordered some fancy $65 steak and was sorely disappointed. He asked for rare and it was closer to medium. I ended up ordering an off the menu fish special. The sides with it were great, but the fish itself tasted old. The group next to us was very loud (and drunk). We though it was kind of odd that we were placed directly next to another occupied table when there were tons of open tables. Our server took our order, delivered our food and refilled our glasses. The service was good, but certainly nothing exceptional. I have much higher expectations for service at that price point ($150 for dinned for two with no alcohol, we drank water, no dessert, one side to share). I shared my experience with a neighbor of mine and he said after going here for his anniversary for 5 years, he was also disappointed by his most recent visit and would not return.

The steaks are absolutely tasty. Yum! And the salmon.....Undeniably the best EVER!!! The food we give 4 stars. Only because there were a few items that were below par, particularly for a restaurant like 18 Oaks. Noise level was about normal. Service was excellent!!!!! Overall, you will want to go back. The service and the food will encourage a return no doubt. And if you haven't been to 18 Oaks yet, you'd be remiss if you don't try it.

Terrible experience and we have been frequenting 18 Oaks for years. Service was slow and sparse. Steaks were either burned or wayyyyy under cooked.

If you’re paying $65 for steak it needs to be cooked perfectly. It wasn’t and covered in butter

The food abs service were excellent. Typical pricing for a resort steakhouse. We were celebrating our 25th anniversary which was noted on our reservation. So disappointed there was no acknowledgement of our special day.

Fortunately we also celebrated in Houston the next night and received this lovely treat. 18 Oaks should consider something similar for guests celebrating a special occasion.
