Great meal. Had a little trouble with the soda but it was replaced and all was fine. The cheese fries were a little over cooked but overall the food was great!

The food was cooked perfectly and tasted good, I just wish I had been able to eat it at a more relaxed pace. Dinner took less than an hour from seating to leaving. Salad and entree was brought at almost the same time.

There were hardly any people when we went at 7:30pm on a Friday. Took a while to get drinks but after that service was okay. Food tasted good. There was a fly on the railing next to me from the time we got there until we left.

Mother’s Day.

Mostly all women working there. I saw only two men. No black workers that I saw.

Meal was good. Salmon was cooked to perfection. O e of the steaks was a bit under done but I’d go again.

Food was good, although it seems to be a struggle for any restuarant to serve mashed potatoes hot (they were lukewarm) Salad was cold and crisp, Steak was OK, not a great cut (New York Strip) but prepared well. Wife's steak was ordered well done but served medium well. Social distancing was not enforced even though there were plenty of empty tables. They were very few people there but the noise level was annoying (and I HATE country music). I would compare them with Outback or Longhorn but below Texas Roadhouse (another country music hell) and not even in the vicinity of a Ruth's Chris (but not nearly as expensive. Saltgrass id overrated and Landry's would be wise to see what works and what doesn't, the potential for a good restuarant is there. Service was adequate.

We felt very rushed! We ordered and salads were delivered. We weren’t even halfway through with them when the entrees arrived. We were still eating when the waiter brought us our check. We were done & paid in under 30 minutes.
Food was good, with the exception of salty seasoning on the upcharged asparagus.
We wanted an enjoyable dinner date, but got a very rushed experience.
I don’t believe we will be aiming to head back there anytime soon, unless I am truly in a hurry.

Great food. (We went early one evening and it was quite empty.) Friendly staff but service and timing was lacking. Took almost 30 minutes to get our appetizer. Our entrée came before our salads and then the server asked if we still wanted bread because that had not been brought out at the proper time either. (We didn't know we were even supposed to get bread since it was our first time dining at Saltgrass.) Overall, it was a good enough experience and we will visit again.

It was a pleasant experience. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was good. The only issue we had was the mashed potatoes as a side for one the the people in our party was not brought out without the entree. We had to ask the waitress to bring them after were already eating.

Food was excellent and service very amiable. It was a little slow but the rush of guests at one time might ha e caused that. We were in the restaurant for 1,5 hours making us leave at 2:30, there were people still waiting to get in. The server kept us informed about the delays and did an excellent job catering to the 3.5 year old that was accustomed to waiting or a restaurant setting. So very pleased with the events that happened to our table.

We always enjoy Saltgrass. Saturday night before 8 pm they get packed and the wait can be over anchor long. Always book a reservation. Also their card if you sign up for it - it helps push you ahead in the line.

Waiters/Waitresses and chef/kitchen need to be trained. Food Very Salty, Burger burned and chewy. Coke machine removed which is a shame because it was one of the only reasons we put up with the average food.

Food was amazing from the appetizer to the cheesecake for desert. We ordered two bottles of wine, pinot grigio and symmetry, which was recommended by our waiter Nathan and the general manager. We loved the taste and it went well with the desert. Nathan did an amazing job as always. He is the best waiter we have ever had. We love this place and look forward to returning.

The service was excellent. Food was good; appetizer was excellent (fried mushrooms) crispy & hot! Martini had little taste & a bit pricey.
Mgr came to table to ask about our visit & I mentioned dissatisfaction with cocktail but no offer to take off bill.

We made our reservation through Open Table last Sunday, November 2, for our anniversary night on Monday, November 3. We showed up at Saltgrass and it was totally dark. As you know, it is very hard to find an open restaurant on a Monday night and we were so excited to go to Saltgrass. What a disappointment on our 47th anniversary. Please update your records if Saltgrass is closed on Mondays. Thank you!
