This was our second visit here and once again loved it. Service was great, food was great and desserts were awesome. We think the atmosphere could be a little better since the place is a fine dining establishment but the place is REALLY loud with everyone having to talk really loudly over the table next to them. All in all,... More

Post Office Street over by the Strand is less crowded with tourists and very quaint. Loved the mixed media sea life art on the walls! The food was very good. My husband had a bone in ribeye special with an bacon onion jam on it. It was huge and delicious. My sea bass was very delicious as well although kind... More

Enjoyed an evening meal before going to the Opera house. Make sure you make reservations. The food was very good, staff was friendly, prices were fair for what you got. Even the Pino Grigio was a decent price.

Went mid-afternoon (Thurs), with Hubs, sat at the bar. I "almost" gave them 4 stars, because the service was impeccable. The food & drink, however, were not up to par... We were just walking around, having a drink & an app at each place. Here, we had the Pesto Mussels. The sauce was fantastic, the garlic ciabatta was Lick The... More

We walked in the Saltwater Grill after leaving Willie G's because they had no live lobster, king crab, prickly pear margarita mix and they gave us stale saltine crackers with our appetizer. We had eaten at the Saltwater Grill a few days earlier and had a great experience and knew they had large live lobsters so we decided to go... More

Our server Travis was wonderfull, food tasted really good, I had the almond crusted salmon and my boyfriend had BBQ red fish. Sauces were really tasty and was not a long wait. I work at the Tremont House and everyone always recommends going here so I was due to come figure out what all the excitement is about. I heard... More

Quick and pleasant service, but mediocre food. My meal arrived so quickly and was luke warm. I guess they had started without me. Neighborhood is a bit iffy even in broad daylight as we were accosted by a bum when parking. Real shame that I could not saying something nicer.

The grilled shrimp was terrific, the asparagus with crab appetizer was tasty and the wedge salad was very fresh and crisp, the bacon cooked to perfection and the homemade blue cheese dressing was fantastic. Two people in our party had the chicken caesar salad and said it was the best they have ever had. We highly recommend Saltwater Grill.

We hosted our wedding party in the back room. The service was impeccable. If we even looked like we wanted something, it was there. The portions are huge...unless your starving, sharing might be a good idea. The menu is well planned and everyone raved about their dishes.

After trying the Olympia at the pier the night before, this place was a let down. It was ok, but nothing special. Small portions. Bland. Not quite as warm as the food should have been. Ordered two desserts to top off the meal, thinking that the desserts looked good and must be better than the seafood... Wrong, the creme brulee... More
