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!

Our first time on vacation and one of our stops was saltwater cafe. My husband and I both had seafood, it was absolutely delicious! The service was phenomenal and they really made us feel welcome. Both the chef himself and the manager came to our table to check on us and to make sure we were enjoying our time. We... More
