Ok, we always come back , but from year to year , the issues are the same. Great location, especially if you sit outside by the water, but service starts off great and then falters really badly. Tonight oysters, coconut shrimp and calamari are great and arrive lickedly split but then it is an agonizing wait for mains and a... More

A number of years ago I was brought to this establishment by a work colleague; My memories were of good food, good drinks and fun time. I happened t be back in town with my parents and thought I would share the experience and hope to repeat my past memories. Just as I had hoped all was very good. They... More

You have to go here if you are in the area. Early bird dinners were huge and wonderful. Beautiful restaurant actually, in side and out. Many different sections with different feels to them all. The grill is fired by wood, so the place smells wonderful ! Intercoastal patio is exceptional. Can't wait to go back !

Have been here multiple times and the food is always excellent. Had an 8pm reservation and was taken on time. The restaurant was completely packed. There was even a celebrity dining there that evening. Steak and seafood is fresh. Yes, it is a bit expensive, but worth it. The view is beautiful right on the Intercoastal and there is a... More

Our party of ten all felt that the staff are not happy there....they never crack a smile or a joke...is this a management issue or something else? Other places we... More

I have been to Salt Rock many times and can honestly say it Rocks. I have never been disappointed. The intercoastal view is awesome. The fish is always always fresh. If you want to impress anyone, come here. Do be aware, make that reservation. Waiting for a table can be painful. Wait times over an hour or eating at 9-10... More

We had reservations for a table on waterfront for six. Great spot and view. We were served drinks promptly, appetizers a while later but our entrees took a very long time. We have a feeling there was some tension between server and kitchen. When the delay was brought to the attention of management, we were well looked after. I must... More

For the second year in a row we have been lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic dinner at the Salt Rock Grill. On our latest visit we enjoyed Ceasar salads, roasted Brussels sprouts and an entree of shrimp, lobster and pasta in a cream sauce and crab cakes with garlic mash, besides the fantastic food the view is incomparable.

$29 for a 3oz filet with crab meat and bernaise sauce only problem they forgot the crab and bernaise sauce and by the time they got it back to the table with the cold crab and sauce everything was cold. Never again! All diners were small and expensive.
