Good food. Strip mall ambience.

My redfish, a daily special, was excellent. The sauce was lovely and the red potatoes and green beans were very good. It got a bit noisy as the evening passed. The ambience wasn't terrible,it just wasn't as special as the food.

Went there with a group of adults for some fresh seafood and I think some of the group seemed to like their food, while myself and others were fighting the overcooked shrimp and rubbery Flounder. So much so, that I have to request a second fork to hold it on the plate. I was terrified that the fish would bounce... More

Service was quick, and my shrimp (parmesan crusted) shrimp were good. But the waiter didn't get the order right (brought the wrong sides), the chips at the beginning were overcooked and tasteless (i would much rather have bread than chips to start...), and the sides of rice and vegetables were tasteless and lack luster. Received the wrong bill at the... More

Was OK. Tried the calamari, hush puppies, stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes, and gumbo. The gumbo and crab cakes were fine, just pretty meh. The calamari plate was generous, but tasteless. The only really outstanding dish were the crab stuffed mushrooms. The potato chips were pretty good.

I have only been here once, but I went with someone who had been before a few times. I ordered the grilled shrimp and they were bland and very rubbery. Not over coked rubbery, but like they had been frozen and possibly thawed and frozen again. That is completely not acceptable in a town that has as many shrimp boats... More

We've enjoyed Saltwater Grill since it opened and tonight was no exception. There were 9 of us (6 adults and 3 kiddos - ages 6, 4 & 2). My husband and I got there a bit early and got a great table. The service was excellent. Our wait person was on task and prompt - took our drink orders while... More

My husband wanted a quick seafood dinner so we used my Trip Advisor app to help us. Stumbled upon this place. Friendly hostess, we were served homestyle chips right away. Those were yummy. I ordered the shrimp and scallop ceviche off the appetizer menu. It was spicy, it wasn't great but not bad. I think the pico de gallo overpowered... More

Best family owned seafood restaurant in Corpus Christi. Everything is so fresh and deliciously prepared. Clean enjoyable atmosphere and have always had a nice knowledgeable server too. Good wine pairing to go with any dish as well as wonderful chef's daily specials. The grilled mahi tacos were the best I've had anywhere. If you've never been there it is a... More

Everyone thinks that living on the coast automatically gives you access to the freshest and best seafood restaurants, but that is hardly the case in Corpus Christi, Tx. However, Saltwater Grill is one of the best places to go for that. It has unique selections other than the typical fried fish and shrimp and always has wonderful service. It is... More

First time we have eaten at Saltwater Grill. Good menu (more complete than the name suggests) and good service. They gave us home-made chips to start with, which I couldn't stop eating. I had a pasta dish which was tasty. My son had the crab cakes, which were very good. We did have key lime pie which was good too.... More
