Ran out of chicken and drink ingredients at 7PM????? Overpriced and the food was bland. Our server was great though.

We enjoyed the meal. I was disappointed in the menu and the new look. Hadn't been there in more than 20 years. I liked the old family style and the old west decor.

We had never been to the Stagecoach so we went on Valentine's Day. It was OK, but not what we were hoping it would be. We both ordered the Surf & Turf and it was OK, but not fantastic. The check was over $120, and that's not too much to pay for a nice dinner. However, based on the food, the service, and the ambience, we felt like the check should've been more like $60. We would try it again, just not on a busy night like Valentines Day.

The staff and atmosphere are great. We were worried when the new owners took over, but they have done a fantastic job with everything!

Wine was excellent. Friend didn’t think the chicken fried steak was as good as last time.

While in Texas traveled to Salado to eat at Stagecoach Inn. Food was excellent and enjoyed, drink, dinner and dessert. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon, so the not very busy. But the food and atmosphere is something I would travel to Texas to enjoy again.

3 of my friends and I ate dinner at the Stagecoach Inn on Friday night. Business was slow as it was a cloudy, gray weekend. The renovations to the dining room were very well done preserving the historic nature of the room but updating it for modern tastes and repairing safety issues, our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable but some of the food was disappointing. We started with the hush puppies (of course!) and although different than before, enjoyed them. I got the grilled pimiento cheese and enjoyed it. Two friends got the prime rib special and one got the chicken fried steak. Although they enjoyed their sides, their common comment after looking at each other "sawing away" was that the meat was "tough". The prime rib ladies got theirs served medium rare and said they didn't know if it was the meat itself or if the kitchen had tried to cook it too quickly or what, but that it was uncommonly "tough" for prime rib. The chicken fried steak lady had the same issue. There was debate about how to handle it. Finally they decided to mention it to the waiter, but not ask for it to be taken back. The feeling was if 3 beef dishes were all tough there was either a prep issue or a beef quality issue and nothing would be solved by asking for a replacement. So they mentioned to the server that their meat was "tough" and that he might want to pass that on to the kitchen, making it obvious they were not going to throw a fit, didn't blame him, but felt there was an issue. He apologized, said he would pass the message along, etc. The restaurant was almost empty. My past experience would have been that the manager on duty would have come to talk to the table, the one dessert that we all split would have been comped or some gesture made to acknowledge the fact that we had paid big $ for drinks, wine, appetizers, entrees and dessert and had not been satisfied with the meat quality. Nothing... if this was a typical meal, I doubt the "new" Stagecoach Inn restaurant will survive.

We enjoyed the update of the restaurant! Food and value was good; enjoyed the ambiance but would have preferred to sit in the room with the bar / fireplace. Loved the seared salmon and specialty margarita, as well as the Arugula and Strawberry Salad. We'll be back!

We were in a quiet room, which was great. Allison took very good care of us. Food was good. No complaints.

My wife and I have been going to the Stagecoach Inn for over 45 years. It has recently changed ownership. The food was mediocre, at best, and the prices were exorbitant for what you got. The ambience has changed, nice, but not like the "old Stagecoach Inn". Staples" of the menu include hushpuppies, which, in the past would be part of the meal and a basket would contain about 8-10 hushpuppies, but now a serving is only two, and the "strawberry kiss" dessert, which came with only 3 half strawberries and the sauce was atrocious. My prime rib was not a prime rib, but some cheaper cut of steak. My inlaws, who absolutely love the traditional Stagecoach Inn, are probably rolling over in their graves. My wife and I will NEVER, NEVER return.

Our tab for 4 was $225.00. The service was great. The cocktails and appetizers were great. The food was average. I know one of the owners and am so disappointed for him.

Good to see the Stagecoach Inn restaurant open again with a fresh new appearance.

Enjoyed our dinner on Friday, very nice prime rib (although their cuts are a bit thin) and nice appetizers. We enjoyed the Pimento Cheese Queso and the Deviled Eggs. Cocktails are great! We plan to make the Stagecoach a regular dining spot!

We were concerned about the service after reading other reviews, but we were seated promptly in a semi-private area and the waitress gave us immediate attention. She didn’t disappear after the drinks, coming back to give us the off menu special and suggest an appetizer. Only drawback was that the prime rib was a bit tough.

A number of years ago we experienced a wonderful meal of prime rib that was delicious and the steak was so tender you could cut it with your fork.
This time we selected a thin cut flank steak, the meat was seasoned well.... However even the medium cooked steak was very tough. Vegetables were good....waitress was pleasant , but the food was not something we want to repeat.

Great atmosphere for a nice meal. Both the traditional 4-course and a la carte menus have something for virtually everyone, and their signature dishes and drinks did not disappoint.

Great brunch! Can’t wait to come back for dinner! You might consider putting the French 75 on the brunch menu.

The food was very good. We all got the prime rib and it was cooked perfectly. I always loved their tomato aspic and would have loved a larger piece like they use to serve but it was excellent. Our waiter was great. The new decor and rooms were lovely. A very pleasant experience. We will return again.
