    A family of four day at a table probably meant for two. Also had people pushing on us just to squeeze by service in the walk ways.

    Perfect choice for Easter lunch. We had a reservation, but don’t think it was needed. We had great table in a quiet corner. Our waiter was friendly and service was great! My husband had porterhouse steak and I had grilled shrimp. Both are always consistently good at Saltgrass. We brought home boxes as the portions were large. Recommend upgrade to sweet potato. It was really good! And, the chocolate cake was to die for! Thanks for great service, good and overall experience.

    The food is always super awesome however the service was just so so. The server was little to friendly I like to enjoy my food with the person I came with not speaking to the service while I eat. The reataura t was so cold I could not enjoy myself. Mostikely won't go back.

    Server was probably brand new. Spilled water on one of our people at the table. Didn’t bring bread plates. Entrees came while we were still eating our salads. (Even after telling the NEW manager we didn’t want them until we were finished. Waited for probably 20 minutes for a bill.

    The local My Gym offered a parents night out, so we dropped off the kids and hit up the local Salt Grass steakhouse for a date night. The hostess tried to seat us at a table in the aisle near the kitchen, so I requested a swap, and we got a booth instead. But I don’t think there was a waiter assigned to that table, so we waited about 15 minutes before we asked someone what the deal was. The waiter that adopted us was great. Very friendly. Great service. The bar was slow. It took a long time to get our wine. We were through the bread, appetizer and a cup a soup before it arrived. The bottle was great, though. We had the Earthquake Zin out of Lodi, CA. All the food was good. The center cut filets were a touch over done but tender. They were seasoned nicely but could’ve benefited from a nice salt crust. Cheesecake was great. The building sits overlooking a lovely pond with an aerator fountain and nice lighting, but there didn’t seem to be any tables that benefited from that view but maybe I’m wrong. If there are, that’s where I’d like to sit next time instead. Otherwise, the ambience is so-so for a nice date night. All that said, we had a nice time. The food came out at a perfect pace once ordered and the waiter was great, which makes all the difference.

    The waiter convinced The Princess to order one of their lesser cuts of cow despite my desires for the him to SHUT T. F. Up but this boy wonder became motor mouthed amidst subdued royalty ! Oh well. At least the mens room provided ZERO hot water to wash up prior to dinner. Life has it’s moments.

    Excellent food and service for a Christmas lunch. We had reservations and were seated immediately. It was crowded, which made us skeptical. But, we received first rate service from our server. The food was perfect and served with little waiting between courses. We had steak and grilled shrimp with cheesecake for dessert. It was all tasty, fresh, and cooked to our requests. Great job Salt Grass for providing a perfect dining experience despite being very busy. We will be back!

    Went there for Thanksgiving dinner. Our reservation was for 1 PM, and we were seated promptly. Bit, we were then told that they had sold out of the traditional thanksgiving fare: turkey and dressing, etc. Service was good, and the food we ordered was also good.

    Even though I made reservations for 3 over a week ago I arrived by the designated time although after the other 2 members in my party only to be told that they had run out of the Thanksgiving meal. Luckily the other 2 members had received theirs. Apparently they were the last to receive theirs.

    We walked in to a relatively quiet restaurant. There was a couple ahead of us and no one at the hostess stand. We saw the bar had customers, but no one was tending to them. We could see employees walking around, but no management was visible. After waiting about 10 minutes someone finally appeared and greeted the couple already waiting. They didn't even acknowledge us, but seated the other couple. We expected the server to at least come back and seat us, but he never did. Instead he preceded to take greet the table he just sat, take their drink order, return with the drinks and then get their order. He looked directly at us multiple times, but never once approached us. We also saw other servers walking around that noticed us, but never approached us. After waiting another 15 minutes we decided to leave and go somewhere else. We understand short staffing with COVID, but I worked in the restaurant industry for over 15 years and never experienced such a lack of concern for possible customers before. I would not recommend going back to anyone, unless I got word the staffing issues were corrected. What concerned me the most was not seeing a manager at anytime during the 25-30 minutes we waited.

    A was delightfully surprised at how good the whole dining experience was. Seating was good, my “old fashion” cocktail was the best I’ve had in any bar, the waiter Justin was knowledgeable, courteous and just attentive enough. My filet was tender and cooked perfectly and even the green beans were fresh but tender and well seasoned. You don’t expect this in a chain restaurant.

    Friendly staff, attentive server. Our steaks were well prepared, food overall was very good and a fair price. Two minor items that could use attention: fruit flies - persistent throughout the meal, and wait staff having a loud (personal) conversation right behind our booth. We did get up and ask them to move the convo elsewhere and they obliged, though maybe a bit miffed at the request. Will definitely return.

    My food was over cooked and I had to send it back. First time that has ever happened because usually everything is cooked perfectly. The good news is that Management handled it in the right way so all was good. This is a good restaurant - a good value and consistently good food and service.
