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.

Everything we ordered was delicious and in good portions (oysters tasted fresh, blackened taco were spicy!, kids chicken was hand breaded, etc). Service was fast. Prices were very fair--better than most places. Also, the setting is... More

The food was great. We sat outside on the marina, and there was live music (Sunday early afternoon). Large portions. Try the barbecue sliders!

I was expecting much better food at this restaurant than what we got. I ordered seafood and it was one of the smallest, and least tasteful seafood meals I had while away for two weeks. I would not return.

We had a pleasant time here. The food was actually very good. I had the Seafood Capri (shrimp, clams, scallops & calamari over linguini), which was delicious! My husband had the tuna fajitas, also delicious. We both ordered tropical drinks before dinner. His margarita was fine, but the Salty Dog I ordered tasted terrible to me. I told our adorable... More

There is a fantastic book out by Danny Meyer on the art of hospitality. The management here needs to read this book. There is currently a coupon out there in one of those large coupon books that this restaurant has decided they no longer honor even though the coupon does not expire until sometime in 2014. Our family decided to... More
