This is a real shame. This classic southern lady deserves so much more. Not to mention the disrespect to pork belly. "Burnt ends" ain't supposed to really be burnt. It refers to the color of the exterior of the meat while the interior should be...More

There is an excellent selection of food including seafood and steaks. The atmosphere is great-overlooking the obile Bay. The service is very good. However, the food tends to be pricey.

Everyone was eating the 18$ hamburger due to lack of variety and over priced menu. The service was good and there was entertainment to enjoy. It is a beautiful indoor/outdoor restaurant bar with great atmosphere.More

Service was excellent. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly recommend the prime rib. We ordered the larger cut and shared. With an extra salad, the quantity was more than we could eat. Go there for dinner.

Sunday sunset from the Saltwater Grill is a treat for us. The filet of beef and the bass were both excellent preparations. The local oysters were fresh, and the wine was surprisingly good for the price.
