Best meal all week!

I read about this chef and restaurant in a magazine I'd received at the SC visitor's center. I decided we should go there because we wanted food prepared by a native Beaufortonian! The restaurant was lovely, the staff all very friendly, and the highlight was the young chef, who came out to meet us... read more

This restaurant has a lovely, sophisticated interior and is located right on the beautiful riverfront. We sat in a comfortable booth in the bar area, but on a warmer night it would be wonderful to sit outdoors (and they supply a warm fire for cooler nights). Our party enjoyed delicious, creative sushi, shrimp and grits, she crab soup, and arugula... More

Very seldom do I give an excellent rating, but this place is over the top . From the bread to the dessert, it is fantastic. The shrimp and grits far exceeded any I have ever had. My husband and I have been on the road for five weeks. We have eaten at 5 star restaurants from Maryland to South Beach... More

Came here with my wife on a Saturday evening at the end of January. It was a last minute thing so had to eat early or no seatings available until very late - we thought that was a very good sign. Even so, arrived early and had drinks and appetizers at the bar. Bloody Mary - a little bit insipid,... More

A very good spot : On the water, the park, and comfortable by the fire with delicious food and drink. Doesn't get much better than that. Service was quite excellent and friendly. Fire, warm and inviting. Sampled several of the small bite plates and housemade pate is out of this world. Made for a perfect warm Southern evening, despite the... More

The restaurant was recommended to us and it was the perfect way to spend my birthday evening. The waitress was fantastic, as was the food. Great menu, beautiful decor. Right on the water and near our bed and breakfast. I would return any time I'm in Beaufort.

Recently we spent a lovely evening in Beaufort, SC. Saltus Grill offers an outside fireplace. We enjoy sitting by the fire, watching the sun set, having a drink with the river near by. Our dinner inside the restaurant was excellent. Our server top notch.

In addition to a wonderful menu choices and efficient and friendly servers, Nicholas the staff always make sure we have our favorite booth in the bar and are happy. And when I have a golf group in town, I know everything will be done correctly. My friends love coming here.

This restaurant has been around for quite a while. Normally you expect a place to get tired and begin to slide once established. Not the case here. Each time it gets better. We dined with visiting friends from DC area that were blown away. I had a platter of single ladies (local oysters) fresh and delicious. I had two appetizers... More
