We have been here before and are aware of their Sunday happy hour meals and drinks from noon to 5:30 and have seen how busy it is. Fortunately their website advises you to call for reservations, which I did and we got in at 4:45. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and promptly seated. Our waiter brought us water... More

We frequent the Salt Rock several times a year. Unfortunately, the food quality and portion size has declined. The cocktails outside bar are outstanding and the service staff are just great. Appetizers are generally very good. The fish portions ie. snapper and or grouper are inconsistent and generally overcooked. Prices are fair, but again, the original quality and consistency needs...

Love this place! Great atmosphere and outstanding service. The Salt Rock has a very diverse menu, nightly specials, and a deep wine and drink list. We come for the seafood which is always excellent but also enjoy the sides, salad, and bread. The waiter was very accomodating to our every wish. Finished the meal with a 30 year old Tawny... More

I ate here while I was on vacation visiting my local friends. They had some gift certificates to use. We had a really tasty fried Tuna appetite (and their sourdough bread and oil is super delicious). We all ate steaks for dinner. They were really great and the sides were tasty too. We had the creme Brûlée for dessert and... More

We went there early one evening. The service was great, he has helpful and quick. The food was erratic. My friend had the meatloaf and it was not very good. I have the grouper but the portion was actually small as compared to the others who had fish. The vegetable stack was not worth it and I would try something... More

Went there for thanksgiving dinner where we were told they would only have a limited menu; however, Nicole was so nice she said order whatever you want and brought us the full menu. This is a place you can go to time and time again and never eat the same thing twice. The menu is extensive, the food well prepared,... More

I would make reservations if you are planning on dining here. Food was excellent. The four of us had the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Good wine list. If you are going to be in the area be sure to have dinner here.

We have been to this venue in the past but I always check trip advisor for any new thoughts. We ordered the red and mangrove snapper specials. Grilled with baked potato. The fish came out over cooked rather than flaky. I asked a floor manager about the portion I was served. Did not get his name but I believe was... More

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"
