Anniversary dinner. Had a hard time making a selection - everything sounded so good - and once we chose, it was great! Very nice downtown upscale eatery great for an evening out. Yes, the price reflected the "upscale."

Good food and service, especially at the bar. But, I was a little disappointed that it didn't have a very wide range of fresh seafood dishes. This reminded me more of an inland seafood restaurant than one on the coast. What they offered was very good and it's a pleasant place to eat. Maybe it was just me expecting more....

The place is so dark, but the attention over there was great, excellent service and also goodwill style. I suggest the almond crusted salmon which is a plenty meal.

We almost always have dinner at Saltwater Grill when we are in town. We have never been disappointed. This time we decided to try the "kettles" which are the various soups and chowders. Two of us had the cioppino and three had the bouilabaisse. Both were loaded with great seafood and topped with whole dungeness crab. We were all delighted.... More

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
