The food here is good, but it is overpriced. The service is friendly and attentive, but slower than a seven-year itch. If you need to be someplace in less than two hours, go elsewhere for dinner. Another suggestion is to ask to be seated inside. The mosquitos and no-see-ums were brutal the night we were there.

On our visit to Saltus River Grill we enjoyed live jazz in the dining room. The food was well prepared and delicious. I do think it was overpriced for the quality-in the mid-thirties for a square of Mahi and a bowl of turnips without any other special presentation was disappointing, and $18 for six raw oysters was a bit high.

No nonsense high quality food served by friendly attentive staff. The setting on the river with an outside terrace makes this place well worth a visit if you are in Beaufort.

This was recommended to us by our inn keeper. She was right! The menu was great, the service was very good and the food was amazing! This is on the water and you can walk there from just about anywhere in town.

First, the food here is delicious, well prepared and well presented. The rest is a just a mess. We dined here on a Sunday. The servers were racing though the place inside and outdoors, it appeared that the servers were all over the place with no defined stations. The servers and kitchen were not in sync and our entrees arrived... More
