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.

An average restaurant but great fresh seafood. Grouper and oysters along with this great coleslaw were wonderful. Make sure you select the fish that is local. I think they have live bands as well but not sure if they are any good.

We arrived in Treasure Island on Friday afternoon before a Saturday stand up paddleboard race. We spotted the Salty Rim and decided to give its intercoastal dining patio a shot. Upon the waitress' recommendation we risked the waffles and chicken breast with mango salsa. We were delighted with the way the flavors mixed, the quantity of food and the unique... More
