We enjoyed oysters from PEI, Rhode Island and Virginia which were served with butter, horseradish, hot sauce and homemade cocktail sauce. Delicious! We also had the sous vide tenderloin and blackened grouper. The flavors were complemented extremely well. The outdoor patio has a beautiful view of the park and the sound. Taylor was an excellent waitress!

Met with a number of High School Classmates (51 years ago) for dinner with wives. The atmosphere was as good as it gets and the crowd pretty nice. I wasn't real hungry so ordered a Caesar salad and what they called a small plate, I was thinking tapas size like other local restaurants. The salad ($10.00) was the worse one... More

Very high-end, patio dining and lovely restaurant inside. Dress-up. A bit pricey but always worth it. There is also a sushi bar.

I have eaten there many times, and have never been disappointed. Excellent seafood, especially, but they also have sushi, which is popular, and very good steaks. I try to go most often during oyster season, as they usually have an interesting assortment- including our wonderful local oysters, On nights when it is not too hot or too cold, the outdoor... More

First off, Beaufort, SC is a fabulous little city on the river. If you've never been to Beaufort, SC you should go. We stayed at the Best Western Seaside Inn (very nice) and the desk clerk recommended Saltus. It is a good restaurant right on the river in the little downtown of Beaufort. We had excellent fried shrimp (crispy, hot,... More

The chef is one of SC Chef Ambassadors and puts locally sourced food together with a flair! This upscale restaurant has been consistently great for many years.

We visited Saltus River Grill tonight after having it highly recommended. The food was good but the service was terrible. We dine out often at fine dining type restaurants and unfortunately this was the worse service we have ever had. Service must match the quality of food or you still end up with a bad experience. The manager was completely... More

A very nice bistro atmosphere, always very good service and consistently delicious fare. A nicely varied menu to include great sushi/sashame selections. Fresh oysters always available from other waters when not in season here. In our eight years of living in Beaufort probably dined there fifty times. Can't go wrong.

Wow! We were there on a Friday night in July. Our table was on their patio overlooking the park and the bay. We were under the trees, the breeze blowing. It was an excellent location. Taylor was our server and she couldn't have been nicer. I have special dietary needs and she was gracious in helping me to have a... More

What a delightful meal. Very upscale for Beaufort. Atmosphere was chic. My best fried had the Scottish salmon and said if he was on death row, that would be his last meal. Deanna was our waitress and her service was like none other. You won't be be disappointed!
