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.

Every time we come to San Antonio, we make it a point to dine at 18 Oaks. Great Sunday brunch selection with live entertainment. It’s such a treat!

The gentleman that checked us out this morning just argued when we tried to explain something to him. Wasn’t a fan of that.

First off, we had a crooked table that they kept promising they were going to fix but never did. We ended up having to shove napkins underneath the table to level it out. Second, being a steakhouse in Texas means to me they would have a quality piece of meat available on their menu. So, we ordered the $69 8 oz wagyu filet. I'm very familiar with wagyu beef. This wasn't waygu. If it was, the buyer should get their money back. It was substandard and not character characteristically tender as wagyu should be. The sides were okay, the wine selection was acceptable. The service was fine and fillet. Order a cheeseburger.

We were kept waiting for 25 minutes past our booking time - the hostess did not seem at all interested in helping us. The restaurant was not even full!

I have dined here before and enjoyed it very much. I had a reservation at 6:45 and did not get seated until 7:15, after I went and asked again about our table. The restaurant was less than crowded. The service was tremendously slow from ordering to serving. The restaurant was not crowded so I do not understand the delay. The food was marginal. the last few times I have eaten at 18 Oaks, it was great, this time, it was a very disappointing experience. I hosted dinner guests, and it was not very pleasant.

JW Marriott completely sold out, thousands of people with plenty of money. Cabanas that cost $1000.00 for the day which isn’t a problem. Water park is amazing. I was stunned that it was so easy to get into their signature 18 Oaks restaurant . I don’t mind spending upwards of $100 per person for fine food. Truly disappointed with food, the most bland food I think I have ever had in my life. Filet Mignon that tasted like they cut it from the cow and threw it on an electric burner in a pan with no hint of flavoring at all. I know now why the resort was completely sold out but walk in’s were no problem at 18 oaks. $400 down the drain. Live and learn!!!! P.S. resort is amazing though

Took my family here for dinner and had a great meal. Our waitress (Melissa?) was awesome, recognized a special situation with our group and managed it like a total pro. We had a great time, thanks to everyone on the team at 18 Oaks!

The quality of the food was exceptional. Very expensive but it was a splurge for our family when staying at the hotel. My family was dressed nicely as were a few other people but several people were in shorts. Perhaps there could be some type of dress code??

We had a wonderful time. Slightly under construction in the room we dined but was still beautiful. The bread was fantastic. I almost snuck some home! We ate seafood and my husbands stuffed lobster won. Such a nice dinner.

Family Sunday Brunch - 2 adults and a 10 and 9 year old. Excellent experience: beautiful restaurant, great food (buffet and made to order), good drinks and exceptional service. Highly recommend if you are staying at the JW - we will brave the Saturday madhouse for the Sunday brunch! Allergy friendly - son is allergic to nuts, sesame and shellfish and doesn’t eat eggs and STILL had a great selection!

Every time we stay at the JW, we come to this place because it is fantastic. They even offer you a nice spread of cheeses before you sit down. Casey was our waiter and he was very friendly, attentive, and provided exceptional service. Their steaks are some of the best but the greatest thing on the menu is their truffle cream corn. Overall just an excellent restaurant that I would go to more often if I lived closer.

After 3 months of not being able to visit the Brunch due to illness - we are back.....I consider it the best brunch in or around the San Antonio metroplex. Fantastic variety of seafood, cheese, desserts along with a small custom order menu that comes with the brunch.....serve staff is always fantastic

I would say that the steak was well cooked. Perfectly pink in the middle just as we requested. The service was great too. My biggest disappointment was the veggie sides. They were not good. Not even ok. Pretty disappointing considering how great everything else was.

I was disappointed with the behavior of the Server (female, I don't remember her name). She wasn't especially nice or friendly. The food was amazing, although insanely expensive. It was really loud. That's about it.
