Decent food and drink

This restaurant is in a strip shopping center, so there is no view except the parking lot. But inside there is a nice drink bar, a raw bar area. I've never used either of those, but have had several dinner meals there in the last 3 months and all were very good to excellent. Service was a little... read more

My husband and i visited here on a Tuesday evening just in time for happy hour... the steamed oysters were good.. we both had the seafood platters, which i must say is the best thus far for seasoning and batter! Our server Shanna is a sweetheart she kept checking on us and conversed with us as well.. The cocktails were... More

my wife and I took a chance with this place, and I am glad we did, it was a diamond in the ruff. We had oysters on the half shell, excellent! We also had the buffalo shrimp and the crab cake tower, the shrimp were a little over done but the crab cake was wonderful. We will be back!

This restaurant space has been occupied by dozens of different places over the years. Nothing seems to last that long. Unfortunately, Salty may join the list relatively soon. My wife and I came to Salty Waters when it first opened up (maybe a month or so afterwards) and it was great! We were impressed and left spending a lot of... More

The food was good and portions were ample. The tea was like colored water . Prices were kinda high but you are a few miles to the beach so that was expected .

We are in town on vacation and thrilled about the many seafood options around. We tried a number of excellent places thus far and were excited about trying a new place with much fewer reviews in the hope of discovering another gem. Unfortunately, this is not one. While we would prefer to forget the experience, we thought it might be... More

The best shrimp and grits Charleston. Comparable to some of the best restaurants in Charleston- including SNOB, Fish, Muse... etc. We couldn't have been more pleased with the service, the food, and the drink specials. This is a GEM on James Island!

My friend raved about this place. I didn't have any expectation so I wasn't too disappointed, just irritated by the end of the evening. I don't eat anything from a "raw bar" in a strip mall, my issue I admit. The sign out front advertised "1/2 price burger night". Hmmm… So we started with the crab dip. It was a... More
