Description: For everyone who loves redemptive powers of the sea and the sensual tastes of the very freshest foods and great drinks, the cure is indeed here: St. Pete Beach’s most festive dining experience, The Salty Rim Grill. The Salty Rim is something from the imagination of an old Florida dreamer or Buffet song. the fresh food is influenced by the great tastes of the Caribbean, Florida Keys and places that rim the Gulf of Mexico. But it’s even more than that, The Salty Rim is a state of mind; the nearest faraway place that the fun loving people of Tampa Bay can escape to… and please when you enter, be sure to check your worries at the door.

Wow! It's been a while since I've been to this restaurant but had a living social deal to use, so decided to give it another try. The food was incredible! Some items on the menu were still there from a year ago, but looked very different....in a very good way! Other items were new to me and were incredible! A... More

We had a coupon for 50 percent off one meal and a free app, well we didn't get either. I guess the coupon book we had ran their coupons from the year before without asking, but we drove all the way down there and they gave us 20 percent off, which barely gave us anything. The food was great, and... More

We decided to visit this restaurant and bar on our last evening. The food was amazing and the service excellent. It was quite noisy as there was a bar crawl trip in but it was entertaining watching them. I had the spicy grouper and it was really tasty. Also tried the appetiser mussels and coconut shrimp which were delicious. Definitely... More

We go a lot to Salty Rim and they have a new app and entre called "Atlantic Volcano Roll". It's not really a roll but the combo of Tuna Poke with the bong bong shrimp with Wasabi and mango salsa are super. Another of our favorites is the wings, not fried is one of my favs

first time for all of us....some new to St. Petersburg and some not. We went around 6pm or so on a Friday and got right in on the patio. Nice view of the water and nearby park. Music was nice - single guy/guitar. Food and service were great! I'm sure we'll eat there again!

We had a greek salad, a caesar salad and fiesta calamari. A $10 Groupon bought us $20 in food. The good: We had a great server. A young, fresh-faced woman who appeared to love her job. Bright and friendly. A pint of Yuengling is $2.50. The large outdoor deck was clean and breezy. The bad: The romaine lettuce in the... More

I've been here many times and have had excellent food. Today I had the fish and chips which was outstanding. The seafood ceviche is also very good, on the spicy side. My favorites are the Bong Bing Shrimp and Piña Colada Shrimp appetizers. With a great deck on the water with live entertainment it's also a good place to hang... More

BEST margaritas on the island and the food is made with love by the wonderful chef George that stopped by our table tonight to say hello. The junk seafood dish is by far the most amazing thing I've had!!

What a great beach dinner! We had a yummy dinner, with lots of options, and our service was spectacular! The waitress was very sweet and the head chef visited our table to further explain the menu. We were very pleased and will definitely return when we come back to St. Pete's Beach.
