Both brands are owned by Landry’s, Inc., which purchased the Saltgrass Steakhouse concept in 2002. Saltgrass describes itself as an “authentic Texas steakhouse” serving Certified Angus Beef® steaks, chicken, and seafood. “Steaks are char-grilled on an open flame Saltgrass style,” according to the company’s promotional materials. “Each steak is topped with fresh garlic butter and seasoned with Saltgrass-7 steak spice for mouthwatering flavor. All breads, dressings, soups and desserts are made from scratch daily.”

The Pensacola Saltgrass will be the chain’s 56th location and its first east of the Mississippi River.

Mike Treadway Architects of Houston submitted plans for the renovation to the city last week. The plans must be approved by the city’s Gateway Review Board, which is set to meet on January 12.

Representatives for Landry’s issued the following statement on Wednesday:

Landry’s, Inc. is proud to announce the Gulf Coast expansion of its Saltgrass Steak House brand.  With over 50 restaurants throughout Texas and the southwest, the authentic Texas steakhouse concept offers a charming rustic décor and inviting interior that welcomes hungry diners to enjoy both legendary, Southern hospitality and a great cut of char-grilled beef. The Saltgrass Steak House menu features favorites including CERTIFIED ANGUS BEEF® steaks, BBQ Baby Back Ribs and a dynamic seafood selection.

The prime location for the Saltgrass Steak House expansion into the Florida Gulf Coast is the company owned Landry’s Seafood restaurant located at 805 E. Gregory St. in Pensacola, FL. According to Terry Turney, COO of Saltgrass Steak House, “We are excited to open our first Florida location at this marquee property and look forward to continuing to serve the community as Landry’s Seafood has for the past 20 years. All of our employees, as part of the re-concept of the location, will transition to the Saltgrass Steak House concept.
