A Tad Disappointing

We visited on a night when the outdoor deck was unavailable, but we had a water view from our table. The short rib entree turned out to be a half rack (or less). I was most disappointed in the flounder entree--the fillets had been trimmed to fish stick size, and although the texture seemed to... read more

I took my Mom for a traditional shrimp and grits dinner. She loved the richness and complex flavors. I chose the less calorie grilled salmon. Both were excellent along with the service. Outdoor seating is available with beautiful views of the Beaufort River. This was our second dining experience at Saltus and we enjoyed it even more the second time.

It is very nice to find a restaurant in this area that openly describes some menu items as "vegan options". I had the vegan sushi roll and the vegan tofu and faro main dish. Both were excellent, but the tofu and faro dish was outstanding. The tofu was seared over a wood grill. It had been marinated in olive oil... More

We are in search of "the best ever" crab cakes, and found nothing nearly as good as those served at "Legal Seafood" until Saltus.........lump crab held together by magic, lightly skillet browned w/chow-chow, buerre blanc, chives and mustard seeds....unbelievable, just delicious... Server Danielle was very friendly patient and helpful discussing the menu and area exemplifying the great Southern charm we... More

My Bride and I had dinner here on our cross country RV tour. It was off season however the Resturant was busy. I had the Shrimp & Grits and it was delicious, creamy grits and home made bacon !

Enjoyed the atmosphere, the attentive staff, and a very nice dinner. Were able to be seated without a reservation. Although quite pricey, our meals were very good. The crab cake from the small plate menu was delicious. The fish special was excellent.

Swanky bar for people watching and for being seen. An upscale restaurant with a city atmosphere. Makes you feel like you're in a posh city. Delicious food, spacious, gorgeous atmosphere and located downtown on the water. A must for a lovely dinner or just drinks.

I'm a local and this is one of the top restaurants in the area. Service always good, good menu. Food always great. Have been there dozens of times, nothing but great experiences.

Very nice vibe to this restaurant. Grilled lobster tail, which you can add to any menu item, was delicious. We also appreciated you can order a glass of Veuve Ciiquot by the glass

Living in Beaufort, SC we have some favorite restaurants and Saltus is definitely one of them. We had friends visiting for 4 nights and they wanted to take us to dinner. We chose Saltus for a delicious meal on a Thursday evening. We started with wine - my husband had the Hahn Meritage and I had the Simple Life Chardonnay.... More
