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

Not your typical seafood selections. Sweet potato crusted catfish has unbelievable surprising blend of flavors! Nice bar, great appetizers and salads. Lively casual atmosphere, not recommended for kids. Nice to duck into if walking around Post Office area, across from the Grand Opera House. Get out of your comfort zone and try this off beat restaurant!

Went here for lunch after visiting the Opera House. Great service from Megan and Julie. Wonderful salads and sandwiches. Local beer (OK, you all know me by now.) And not a french fry in sight. Highly recommended.

The service was good, food was average, atmosphere was terrible. Understood that it was a stylish place, with well dressed clientele. Surprised that management put up with the loud noise, and sloppy dress. Would not recommend.

We went here to skip the typical fried seafood menu available at most places in Galveston and it was a great choice. Crab cakes were excellent and the lobster risotto was to die for. Diverse menu and service was outstanding. Fast , efficient and very attentive. Nice wine list with reasonable prices. Overall an excellent dining experience for a special... More

This restaurant had delicious food! The bread they serve before the meal was to die for. I ordered the Apple Cider salad and added grilled shrimp. Absolutely THE BEST salad I have ever had. Hands down. The atmosphere is very nice but also relaxed. My family and I came after a long day at Schlitterbahn and all we wanted was... More

Because of one thing, the lobster bisque, which is creamy and full of lumps of lobster. Although it may not be on the menu, it's almost always available. Tonight l had the lightest calamari I've ever had and it was a squidbilly massacre piled high with fresh fried eight legged creatures served with home made marinara sauce. And these were... More
