Bong-bong shrimp, conch fritters, Buffalo Chicken between the buns, and fresh grouper were all great. And the service was very good, Joel took great care of us

we both ended up ordering this and they were very good. they did char the outside of the burger which wasn't the best, but overall with the bacon and onion straws they were really good. we were there early on Sunday and enjoyed sitting outside. server was friendly. we will likely return and try seafood.

Popped in for lunch. After our second round of drinks and about an hour, our waitress told us that they were out of fries and slaw and the only other sides they had remaining for our meals were corn bread and bread. Seriously? Very disappointed. Would not recommend. It's also in a kind of crummy location overlooks a bunch of... More

A nice place to go on the water. Food is hit or miss. Had the Bong Bong shrimp, excellent. The fish and chips, fries excellent, fish soggy and batter on inside soggy. Service is good, but kitchen is slow, but your there to enjoy the view and have a relaxing drink. All in all a good visit. Would go back... More

We have been to this area on the gulf many times over the years and don’t know how we ever missed this waterfront gem. Stopped in for lunch on this busy Sunday afternoon. We were greeted at the door and took a seat at the bar until a waterfront table became available. Good selection of beers and spirits. Staff was... More

There are many waterside restaurants in the area to choose from. This waterside restaurant that looks just like your typical Florida beach bar - but is so much more. We arrived for lunch, sat at comfortable outdoor table with most attentive service. We ordered the grouper which was cooked to perfection. Ordered it blackened, it was delicious, spicy but not...

From our greeting at the door by their super friendly and hard working manager Luke, to our helpful knowledgeable friendly server Amanda, our experience was memorable. The food presentation, taste generous portions were perfect. A deliciously prepared Caribbean style dish "Macadamia Crusted Grouper " made me (a native of Barbados) say, "This is a taste of home." For desert, try... More

This is a big place with lots of indoor and outdoor seating. It was cool so we ate inside and listened to the live music which started around 1 p m. The young man played the guitar and sang, and it was not to loud. My husband enjoyed fresh oysters, and a fish sandwich. My salad with chicken breast was... More

For everyone who loves redemptive powers of the sea and the sensual tastes of the very freshest foods and great drinks, the cure is indeed here: St. Pete Beach’s most festive dining experience, The Salty Rim Grill. The Salty Rim is something from the imagination of an old Florida dreamer or Buffet song. the fresh food is influenced by the great tastes of the Caribbean, Florida Keys and places that rim the Gulf of Mexico. But it’s even more than that, The Salty Rim is a state of mind; the nearest faraway place that the fun loving people of Tampa Bay can escape to… and please when you enter, be sure to check your worries at the door.
