Great view, small portions

This was by far the best outdoor seating arrangement in Beaufort overlooking the waterfront park . The service was amazing and the meal was fabulous. The portions were very small, very European . You won't be disappointed. A must do in Beaufort. Make reservations.

We had not been to Saltus in years, but went this Memorial Day evening because it was one of a few restaurants open. My husband had the spicy roll and loved it. Justin, the sushi chef was wonderful. I had a small plate--a new item--chicken and dumplings with gnocchi pasta and fresh peas and carrots. What a great small plate... More

We had stayed in Beaufort a few years ago and had eaten there and this was stop was just as pleasurable. This fine dining restaurant has good food, value and service. I had the chicken and dumplings and... More

The menu has meals for almost all taste preferences. Please try the crab bisque - it is the best we have ever tasted.

We had a lovely time sitting on the deck for dinner one night in May. I decided I had to try the shrimp and grits - they were very creamy and good - not grainy like grits sometimes are. Sitting outside on the deck watching the people go by on the beach makes for a nice relaxing evening. Service was... More

From the moment my husband and I walked in, we were impressed with the staff and atmosphere of the restaurant. We were seated at a window overlooking the marina under dim lights. Our waitress was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about their menu items - she even made wonderful recommendations that did not disappoint. Our entire dinner was delicious - a... More

Dinners were OK, not anything memorable. I had the lobster tails. They were broiled but over cooked. The meat was tough.

We happened upon this place as we were walking the pier/park in downtown Beaufort. We stopped for an adult beverage and ended up staying for a light dinner. I chose the twice baked potato with lobster bits and it was scrumptious. My husband had the pork belly dish and loved it. It is an upscale bar/restaurant with outdoor seating. We... More
