Great food and atmosphere!

Great waterfront restaurant with a great bar and ambiance... even has outside seating if you want it. Reasonably price food and wine. Get the Blackened Dorado! Best fish I have had in a very long time!

On a recommendation from the hotel clerk we visited this restaurant. Probably one of the best ways to summarize my visit is to say simply, "I'll be back!" The food is wonderful and the wait staff superb.

Three of us ate dinner at the Saltus River Grill, we had made online reservations and a very nice table had been held for us. The service was immediate and impeccable but rather on the the frosty side. We had sushi for appetizers it was fresh but certainly not remarkable. The first entree ordered was short ribs, polenta with roasted... More

The Saltus River Grille has been around a while; at least ten years. They never disappoint. This review covers two meals within one week. Friday past, we cam with my son down from NY. I started with a kale caesar salad. SRG has a slightly unusual way of presenting salads. All the ingredients are on the plate but not tossed.... More

First, the positives: The wait staff was extremely competent and helpful, the menu is interesting, the food well-prepared and the wine list varied. The negative. There was an extended family several tables from us that had children that were extremely ill-mannered. The adults made absolutely no effort to discipline them. The entire time we were there these children were noisy... More

I thought the food was mediocre. Dorado had no taste, husband said wahoo was "okay". Caeser salad was good, grits were tasty, Bloody Mary was good, bread was good, flan was good. But the entrees were blah.

The Saltus River Grill was highly recommended by the manager of my inn, but was disappointing. The food was tasty, but not outstanding. The server was both inattentive and overly friendly, intrusive, almost aggressive. The heat had not been turned on early enough, and the place was uncomfortably cool.
