Wait not long for table. Atmosphere was nice and our waiter Keith was enthusiastic. Had calamari appetizer nice presentation and delicious followed by scallops entree which was rich and delicious. Steak was other entree came way under cooked for med had to be removed and...grilled. This is always disappointing when ones eating and the others waiting. Otherwise this was a good choice.More

Dined her on a Thursday night. I had the Grouper Imperial and my wife had the Macadamia Mahi. Both were excellent. We also had a Caesar salad and it was very tasty. Would not hesitate recommending friends visit Saltwater Grill.

We visited the Saltwater Grill on a Sunday night. The tables were physically distant and all the waitresses wore masks or face shields. We started with the fried calamari with an Asian twist which was great. My son had his usual seafood pasta which was...great. I had Macadamia nut Mahi which was good, but the lobster bisque was amazing. My husband had the mixed grill which was wonderful with a steak that melt in your mouth! Our meal was finished with a bananas foster cheesecake which was absolutely wonderful! This meal was the highlight of our holiday weekend and we cannot wait to return!More

One of the best dinners we’ve had in PCB in a long time. Crab cakes, Lobster Bisque, and Lobster Eggs rolls were all very good. For entres, The ladies got the Double Lobster Tails, Rob has Surf and Turf and I got the Snapper Special....All Lobsters were cook very well and had good flavor, steak was a perfect Medium Filet done right the Snapper was listed as golden pan seared, but was more blackened and served over a fried grit cake all topped with a dark roux crawfish étouffée. They don’t take reservation, wait was only 15-20 mins, seating was spacious and service was excellent. Not the cheapest place in PCB, but well worth the price!More

We enjoyed our meal here. Firecracker shrimp is delicious and has a kick to it. Grouper imperial and grilled mahi (early bird menu) were both delicious. Guests and servers were wearing masks and social distancing.

Excellent food and service! Went following the Covid 19 reopening and everything was clean and plenty of space between tables. Staff wore their masks and food handlers bringing food out had on gloves and masks. Beside that I had scallops that were amazing and my...friend had the macadamia nut Mahi . Please give them your business and eat local!More

Tried this one based on reviews and was disappointed. I love shrimp and grits and while the shrimp were delicious, the grits were just ok. Best I've ever had were in Savannah, not here. The Ahi-tuna was also a disappointment ... Once you have Sister's...of the Sea Hot Tuna, no one else's will do. The lobster rolls as well as the bang-bang shrimp off the appetizer menu were good. My mom returned her salad. We won't be back.More

Our first visit to Saltwater Grill did not disappoint! Food and drinks were all outstanding. Filet was cooked correctly, and the raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing was amazing. The firecracker shrimp appetizer was a tender, sweet-and-spicy blend of MMmmm!! And what a treat to enjoy twice-baked...potatoes! The Key Lime Martini was wonderful. Our server, Mandy, was friendly & attentive and took good care of us. They take the virus precautions VERY seriously here... in fact it almost felt unwelcoming to encounter SO many signs all over the place. But once we were seated, everything else more than made up for it. Will definitely be back!More

Fabulous restaurant, the food was spot on as well as our lovely server Erin. I had the steak Oscar, cooked perfectly and my fiancé had the Grouper Imperial which blew us both away. Highly recommend!!

I would highly recommend this restaurant. We went for an early dinner around 4:30 and they had amazing early bird specials. I am gluten-free and I was so impressed with all the gluten-free options on their menu. I had the Mahi, rice, and asparagus and...everything was delicious and cooked perfectly. My boyfriend had the prime rib, mashed potatoes and green beans. It was the best prime rib we ever had and was so tender that you could cut it with a fork. The service was excellent and we will definitely be back in the future!More

While seafood and steak are certainly favorites at this restaurant there are pasta dishes for those not into meat.
