Fool me twice, shame on me.

We had 2 bad experiences here, about 8 months apart

August '21 Server was dismissive of my communication that I'm gluten free and was very condescending. (Should note that my husband and I have been servers for many years ourselves & are very gracious when interacting at food service establishments) I ordered rattlesnake tails off of the gluten free menu and they came out deep fried! I specifically reminded him GF when ordering, as well. When I told the server that I clearly will get sick if I eat this, he was VERY snippy and asked if I just wanted the manager to walk me through every single item on the menu. I never did see the manager. About 10 minutes after he insisted that it was fine and was so rude to me, he returned with a new plate, where they were grilled. He did not collect the contaminated plate from us and we had to ask someone else to clear it. Salad came out with croutons, I never got my soup. Margarita did not arrive until the bill did. Chalked it up to one terrible server.

April '22 The gluten free menu was gone & no one was knowledgeable about gluten. I ordered what I usually would - grilled salmon with green beans & salad. I learned afterward that the green bean recipe has changed and they are NO longer gluten free, and I was assured that they were. My salmon came out totally bare and overdone. (Not even salt!) Clearly the move of an undertrained cook who is being extra cautious - which I appreciate to a point, but it does not make me feel safe.

Spoke to management who was apologetic but did not offer to fix it or seem to have any knowledge of menu items either. We left without eating.

I will never return to this Saltgrass again.

Saltgrass is a reliably good steakhouse, reasonably priced, and offers a GF menu. So many steakhouses in Houston are very expensive, this is a good option with full meals available under $20. As for atmosphere, think more longhorn cattle than white tablecloth.

Saltgrass is a great meal! You can get gluten free bread (ask for it on a plate) and butter while others have regular bread before the meal. Managers and usually extremely knowledgeable

The kitchen manager approached the table after I requested a gluten free menu from the server and clarified whether it was an intolerance or Celiac and explained how they would cook the dish separately in a frying pan and finish it off in the oven. Then he went over which sides would be safest and measures to avoid cross contamination which made my experience there such a relief. Not to mention the steak was cooked to perfection-medium-and exceptionally juicy and well seasoned!

Visited Saltgrass Steakhouse on our Anniversary. The Ribeye steaks, sweet potatoes and shrimp cocktail was delicious. The waiter was very helpful.

Wouldn’t recommend. They do have a GF menu but do not acknowledge all of the items on the menu. I ordered a “Hickory Burger” from the GF menu and was served a brisket burger (not on gf menu). The server said “oh we don’t have a hickory burger so I assumed you wanted this one.” So I re-ordered a plain cheeseburger (no bun) & they put it in a to-go box (I felt rushed out the door at this point), I check the box and it has a bun!! Not a gf bun either. Not a good dining or good experience.
