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.

We went to 18 Oaks for our 30th Wedding Anniversary Dinner. We were staying at the JW Marriott Hill Country resort so it was conveniently located at the resort. The dinner was amazing. Our server (Casey) was outstanding and helped walk us through the menu with great descriptions of the food options. This is not an inexpensive place...but the experience was one of luxury and it felt like it was worth the money. Although its a steak house and I am not a big "steak guy", I did order a Filet Mignon and it was easily the best piece of meat I have ever eaten. Our dinner for two was nearly $200 with a $70 bottle of red wine ... but it was our 30 anniversary so didn't think too much about it. Certainly not a place the average (or even above average) couple would go on a regular basis, but for a special occasion or if you're staying at the hotel and want a REALLY NICE dinner, its the place to go.

I mistakenly made a reservation for a different night than when I showed up with a customer - but they were very gracious and found us a table outside and dinner was fabulous. Didn't have the crab legs, but they looked good!

Having eaten some of the best steakhouses in the US we would definitely rank 18 Oaks right up there with the best. Food and service were on point. Some of the unique twist such as Duck Fat french fries and smoked tomato soup were a big hit.

Our server was fantastic, took great care of us without being intrusive. We were there for Easter brunch and my entire party enjoyed everything they had. Good variety and excellent staff. Exactly what you would expect at a JW facility. The property itself made a great backdrop for Easter pictures.

Service and food were great, ambiance not so much. For the prices it was very regular Saturday night restaurant loud, like going to Chili’s. No real dress code, people dining in torn t-shirts and flip flops.

Absolutely fabulous brunch on Sundays. Everything is labeled, well spaced, immense variety. Prime rib, Turkey, pork hash, bacon, sausage, sweet rolls, biscuits, fruit, cheeses, desserts, and the order menu! The lobster omelet is perfection. Best eggs you will find. Subtle flavors. Service is top notch. Mimosas, champagne, coffee, tea and soda are included. Don’t miss this brunch

Went for Sunday Brunch. Lots of choices and loved the complimentary mimosas. Very nice that they do with other than orange juice. Too yucky to sit on patio but that is a nice option. I was surprised to see all the shrimp, oysters and crab claws! Smoked duck was delicious. Many kinds of dessert options with nice explanation on what they were and if gluten free, etc.

Due to the fact that the 6 of us were enjoying brunch, there will always be plenty of dirty plates. Problem is that they were not being picked up. Courtney was a great waitress with the exception of that, and unfortunately that is a bit of a big deal. No one wants to continue to eat with dirty dishes in front of them. We will be back again, so please inform the waitstaff to pick up guests plates as soon as they are done with them. Thank you!

We have been to 18 Oaks numerous times. Always enjoy the food, ambiance, etc. It seems like I have the same complaint every time. The service starts out really good and peters out after food is served. The waiter's assistant brought water at the beginning and stated he will be assisting the main waiter, but according to him only assists when asked. He needs to be a bigger part of the team to assist in bringing to go boxes, etc. We were waiting way too long for several things at the end.

Incredibly Disappointed. We went on a surprisingly slow Saturday evening and service was very slow. The ambiance was stuffy and felt like it was straight out of a 70's knock off of The Standard Club. Food was unimpressive and overpriced. I get that this is at a resort and part of the club, but I am from Chicago and have dined in NY, Vegas, LA, and Houston regularly and while the pricing tries to compete with those destinations, the quality does not come close. The crab cakes were "good" but nothing special. The charcuterie board was much smaller than we had expected. The presentation and plating of the food was some of the worst we had seen. My boneless ribeye looked like it was dropped on a plate with a 1/4 over roasted onion as garnish. The cauliflower with gruyere cheese was literally 1/2 a head of cauliflower uncut and looked like queso poured over it. The duck fat cooked brussel sprouts were probably the best thing we had and I want to tell you they were amazing, but that would be a significant overstatement. I don't want to forget to mention that while we asked for our 4 y/o son's grilled cheese to come out before the meal, it arrived 15 minutes after everyone else's meal (I mean come on, it's grilled cheese and 15 minutes???). The "wild game" of the night was Lamb shank. I don't know where Lamb is wild game, but I was told it was just "alright" by my friend who loves lamb. The evening ended with desserts and it took surprisingly long (almost 30 minutes) for them to come out. My wife and I split the creme brûlée while the other couple had the apple crisp or something like that, I guess that is why it took so long to make that. The next night we all got together again for NYE and our feelings were the shared by both couples that we will not return. If you are going to drop this much money, Bohanan's, Perry's or The Palm are much better options.

Christian remains an excellent waiter!
Disappointed that online menu was not updated, as choices I was planning to order were no longer available (spicy crab with avocado, smashed fingerling potatoes with creamy horseradish) or have been removed in the past (braised kale with bacon). However, Wagyu Filet remains my top choice and worth returning for.
