I rarely get asked out on a Friday night in fact that hasn’t happened in a lot of years. So when my wonderful son asked if I would like to have a nice dinner with him – his treat how could I refuse! We decided to check out the Saltgrass steak house, how exciting! I know I’m not used to evening dinning so my perception may be a tad off, of course we expected a wait to be seated and surprisingly, it wasn’t long at all before we were seated for such a small dining capacity restaurant. Excellent! I thought. Unfortunately the building acoustics allowed for so much noise I couldn’t hear the waitress, had to yell across the table, and sadly I couldn’t hear my dining partner. In my opinion it was just too loud to enjoy my special night out. There are techniques to reduce noise reverberation and I hope management will check into ways to enhance the dining experience. I intentionally looked around and most people were not talking to each other, and they were certainly yelling in the bar area. Our waitress didn’t have on a name tag or I couldn’t see it, so I wasn’t sure of her name, she may have said it but I couldn’t hear it. Kind of a funny thing she wrote our order on a napkin, I ordered a 12 oz rib eye and didn’t ask how I preferred to have it cooked, she came back after our appetizers to ask. Anyway it came out a little too rare I sent it back, which really shouldn’t happen in a steak restaurant. The steak was really good and I enjoyed it very much! All the food was hot and delicious. I ordered butter on the side for my baked potato and had to use a spoon to scoop the delicious quarter pound of melted butter out of it. On the way home discussing our experience and the food, because we couldn’t have a conversation at the restaurant, because I couldn’t hear anything. Price was the first topic noting price was at the top of our budget, the extras and add ons seemed to be a little high. I had onions and mushrooms which added an extra 2.99.
Then I find they have a to go charge of 45cents! We got a piece of chocolate cake to go. I find this outrageous! Just saying. I was disappointed with my experience, even though the food was good, I will probably not go back anytime soon.
