Great food & atmosphere!

This was my first time visiting Saltwater Grill. I absolutely loved it. I had the salmon and it was great - fresh and cooked perfectly. The aquarium was beautiful and the piano bar was pleasing. The staff were professional and personable. I definitely recommend.

First visit tonight and we left talking about when we will come back. The early bird specials were a really good value based on the great tasting food. The server and other employees all made us feel welcome and we were never rushed. This was a good find for us and we will return again.

Their Happy Hour drinks are excellent, a Cosmopolitan for $5....what more could you want? Well, actually, you can get a brilliant Margarita for $2.75!!The decent house red wine came in generous measures & the quality glasses & cutlery all added to the feel being in a fine dining establishment. The appetizer salads looked good but we opted for the soup,... More

Great place to have dinner. Can dine early or late even a very late lunch as they open at 3 pm in Jan and Feb. Best prime rib I've had and I know from past experience their sea food is wonderful. Excellent service was provided by Warren.

We appreciate your review! Our Prime Rib is always a great choice, and at just $14.99 during Early Dinner it's a great bargain too! But as you mentioned, we also feature a great selection of Gulf fresh seafood as well! A little something for everyone!

Three visits in 10 days, all with large groups. One visit was awful!! and very over-priced (Valentine's Day). Total confusion about the prices made it an expensive full-priced shock. Then, so disappointed in my "Chicken Alfredo' - dry slices of chicken on top of dried up pasta in a small amount of congealed sauce. Couldn't believe it!! So what happened?... More

Thank you for dining with us, and for your review. I do apologize for any confusion regarding our menu on Valentine's day. Our Early Dinner menu is not available just a few days a year, and Valentine's is one. We do, however, still offer our regular dinner menu to give our guests plenty of dining options!

The food was above average. The service was above average. The personality of the waiter saved the evening and made it enjoyable. I called two weeks agao and was told they did not take reservations. It was obvious while we were waiting...some people had reservations.

We appreciate you taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor! I do apologize if there was confusion regarding our reservation policy. We do accept call ahead seating. Although this does not guarantee immediate seating upon arrival, it will drastically reduce your wait time. Once we accept a certain number of "call aheads", we are only available by walk in...

I have lived in Panama City Beach 20 years. The Salt Water Grill has always been one of my favored upscale place to eat. Good cuisine and good service. The new aquarium sitting in the middle of the dining area is stunning. One of my favored experience is to watch the live groupers while eating the "Grouper Imperial".

Salt water grill is a great place to eat while at Panam City Beach. Make sure you go for the early bird special, the portions are smaller but the food tastes wonderful. Make sure you order the grilled Mahi with mango salsa. It is the best.

Trish S, General Manager at Saltwater Grill, responded to this review

Thank you for joining us! Our pineapple-mango salsa is made fresh in house daily, as are all of our sauces! It's a great choice with the Mahi, or any of our fresh fresh selections. And for just $14.99 during our Early Dinner specials, it's also a great deal! We truly appreciate you taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor!... More
