Description: This beach landmark is legendary, and it’s still on fire with a burning passion for delectable food, enticing drink and pleasurable surroundings. For an evening of fine dining, elegant atmosphere, superior service and genuine hospitality, Salt Rock Grill is your destination.Come by land or sea and enjoy the finest dining location in Tampa Bay.St. Petersburg Times–"The first modern surf and turf joint on the beaches still packs them in with red-hot, straight-ahead cooking. Steaks are first-rate, lobsters monstrous, wine cellar deep, seafood and fish souped up in spicy broth. The unexpected treats are root vegetables, lentils and smart spicing"

“Sunday evening dinner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Very disappointing visit. First the restaurant. smells like mold. We ordered an arugula salad which came as a pile of arugula with viniger on it only. Was absolutely awful,,, the entree was a very small piece of fish which cost thirty dollars. Very overpriced for the cost. On top of that they up charge you for any sauce or vegetable. This place has gone down the tubes. They used to include a salad and vegetable with all their dinners. Not sure what happened to this place but I would NOT recommend

“About what we expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Took a large group of customers here last week. I called ahead and let them know that we were running a bit behind but that most of our group was there so could they please get them seated and comfortable, the girl on the phone told me no problem. When we arrived we were shocked to see that our group was still milling about out front. They were told they couldn't be seated without everyone there. Being that we spent around $1,000 I found this to be a bit tacky on a relatively slow week night.

Other than that snafu at the beginning things were good otherwise. Good service, great views, average food.

Get the hostess staff trained up a bit better.

“Our beach favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Had another great dinner at SRG. This was our 3rd time and we were not disappointed. There were 4 of us and everyone loved the food. Service was prompt and courteous. Alaskan crab legs, surf and turf and the sea bass special were all wonderful. My twice rocked potato was a little cold so I asked to have it warmed up and it came back dry and my friends baked potatoe was overdone but otherwise we enjoyed everything and had a great night. Will go again next time weare down there.

“They know how to cook”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Never been disappointed by their food. Casual yet with pride! Their signiture sourdough bread is a good stuff... Try at least once. Warning: you might have to wait more than one and a half hour with reservation on the busiest day such as Valentines' Day; Free parking on the right side gets full quickly, or valet on the left. "Two Early Dinner for $25" (no beverage) before 5 p.m. might be the best deal!!! If you choose to sit outside especially in summer, expect a few nats and humidity.
