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.

Everything about it was excellent except for the noise level. For a fine dinning experience seemed like there were a lot of big groups and everyone was talking over each other. I had to repeat myself to my wife several times and she was sitting across from me on a two person table.

Best steak ever! Everyone at the table that ordered steak agreed that it was the best they've had. Our server was available at just the right times and made us feel at ease.

Great steaks, martini’s and service. The ambience was lacking as there was a lot of people dining in an open, huge room. There are no tablecloths, silverware setup and the like which would have been nice for a high-end, high-cost steakhouse. Not an intimate environment by any stretch of the imagination. Saying that, however, the food was outstanding as was an attentive staff.

My requested time was not available so I took a later time. I got there early. Not only were they able to seat me immediately, but there were plenty of tables available. Wish I would have called instead of using Open Table for reservations.

I was expecting a nice restaurant experience. But people were in shorts, and it was louder than any sports bar I've ever been to. Food was good (and expensive), and service was great.

We requested an outside table because it was very loud inside. We were very happy with our table which overlooked the golf course. The service was outstanding and the food even better. Best filet I’ve had in San Antonio. It was expensive, but worth every penny. Will definitely go back!

Everything about this experience should be great but when you get a 6 ounce pour at 22 dollars a glass of Louis Martini you know you are in for a needlessly expensive night. 9 ounch pour of same 36 bucks. Not for that wine. Yes, this is a 4 star resort on a world class golf course but this is not 5 star dining.

Food was great, service was decent. Lots of children being loud even though it was after 10pm, but that’s to be expected at a family resort. Will definitely come back.

Our waiter was fantastic. We were there with our kids (not the target audience of the restaurant - we ate there early before the main crowd). The waiter was very proactive to help with basics (e.g. bringing French fries as an appetizer before the meal itself). Food was very nicely prepared (if a bit on the pricey side). Will definitely be back next time we stay at the JW again.

It was okay. No one thought the food was spectacular and the price is too high for what they serve. The golf course view and location is good if you are staying at the JW. I had crab cakes that were dry. They have a good wine list.

Food is always amazing and new seasonal menu selections launch this week! I have not found a better steak anywhere in SA and my husband, a seafood lover loves the fresh seafood.

Mike makes the best blueberry mojito as a martini!

Good times always assured!

We arrived at the restaurant excited for a great meal. There was only one other group there when we arrived. They tried to seat us along the back wall right by where all the wait staff would be passing by constantly. Basically the worst table. When I asked if we could sit by the window and have a nice view man showing us to our table said that he was not sure, they had a lot of reservations that night. The manager overheard our conversation and said yes of course sit by the window. I should not have to fight to have a nice table. I noticed that they seemed to put people at "bad tables" and hold the good view tables.
The food was good but not excellent. I had the fish special and got a tiny thin piece of snapper that was overcooked. The crab on top was great though. I felt that they were charging too much for the quality. will skip this place next time.
