Based on the Saltwater Cafe website my wife and I drove 25 minutes to try it out. Within their website they advertised 3 German beers on tap which convinced me as I enjoy a good German beer. Upon arrival we were told that they didn't have any of the beers on draft and hadn't had them for several years. We... More

I stopped at this place because it was down the street from my hotel in Osprey. The only thing I liked was their local brewed beer on tap. The chef recommended meals were terrible, but our server was courteous and prompt. I would not recommend this place based on the quality of the food.

I had the veal wiener schnitzel with zucchini and asparagus. It tasted great and so did the homemade bread that was served before the meal. I was surprised that homemade ice cream is served after the meal for free. Our server was very attentive. The atmosphere was upscale, but you could get soup and sandwich for $5.99 if you didn't...

About 10 min drive north of Venice. My husband had a mixed seafood dish which was lovely with large portions of various fish and shellfish. I wasn't very hungry so I opted for a bowl of clam chowder and an appetizer size portion of coconut shrimp, they were both delicious.

Went on for the "all you can eat fish fry" I have reviewed this place before and the service was horrible, still the same problems, drinks never get refilled (unless you ask and ask and ask), and your waitress/waiter disappear for long periods of time. She did apologize and mumbled something about a waiter quitting and she had to take... More

Not edible ... smells and is just dirty. I have heard this from anyone in my neighborhood who has eaten there also. Don't do it!
