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.

I originally reviewed the Salty Rim in April 2012 and we loved it! We especially loved dessert. We went back this past April and had a terrible experience. The restaurant seemed very dirty (my shirt stuck to the table) and the staff seemed uninterested in working. I ordered a cheese burger that tasted like a dirty fryer - it was... More

The crew from Our Shore Life spent an afternoon at Ft. DeSoto park last Sunday. After a long hot day at the beach, we spotted The Salty Rim Grill on our way home. Tucked in the corner of a small complex, we found a beautiful outdoor seating area surrounded by the waterfront. We sampled a Rum Punch and a Margarita,... More

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.

I felt a little guilty because I gave the Salty Rim such a bad review after I ate there the first time, so I decided to try it again. I read that they had a new menu and a new chef so I thought they deserved a second chance. WRONG !! I had the fish tacos and I could not... More
