Went for appetizers and made a meal of it. Oysters on the half shell were good-sized and fresh. 1/2 price during happy hour, which runs until 8pm during the week. The hot pimento cheese dip was an interesting choice. Like con queso, but with a different taste. All-you-can-eat crab legs for only $29 was a deal I couldn't pass up.... More

ok - it's in a publix strip mall - so ambience it's not. But for $12 I got a huge piece of Mahi, pineapple salsa, and asparagus. It was seriously - as good as Mahi as I've ever had. I also had the crab soup - pretty good. It's not a - really nice, lux place - it's just plain,... More

My absolute favorite place to have Sunday Brunch! There are so many things to choose from on the menu that I have a hard time deciding what to order!

This was our first trip to this restaurant, we saw that it had some good ratings on some different site. We stopped in and it was as good as the ratings had reviewed it. We had the oysters appetizer in the shrimp and crab quesadilla. They were both incredible. We also had the chicken crab provolone on a pretzel bun... More

Salty Waters Rawbar & Grill is our "new" favorite place for brunch! The food is exceptional but hey...the owner is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University! There was a recent restaurant fire in downtown Charleston and the owners offered a free three course meal to the employes that lost their jobs because of that fire!

The food was pretty good bar type food. We didn't get seafood. The service was outstanding, but we were the only ones there when we left at 230pm. There 3 others when we got there. I didn't properly read the menu and we ended up with 6$ plus tax for a tea and soft drinks. It would have been cheaper... More

We recently had two meals at Salty Waters- one for dinner on a Friday night and one for Lunch on Saturday before leaving town. We had to go back because of the exceptional quality of the food. We had the crabcake/fried green tomato combo as well as an awesome array of oysters- some local some from the gulf and some... More

For an owner who has been in the restaurant business before, it is not well reflected in their own enterprise. The space was nice and cozy when it was the Starfish (and the 1000 other iterations before that didn't make it) but is now too wide open and offers little personality. The colors are muted to the point of being... More

There was something for everyone's palate. I had the seafood trio with grilled shrimp, pan seared scallops and fried oysters. Great.
