We have been going here every year for at least 10 years (except for Hurricane Ike year) and it pleases everyone every time. They get their seafood from Katie's off the docks and it's the freshest around. My mom is a professional cook and she only gets her seafood from Katie's. The tuna tower is delectable and for the turf... More

We had gotten tired of the same ole places on the strNd and tried this place. I am so glad we did. The atmosphere is more upscale but shorts are welcome. The lobster risotto is the best item on the menu!!

Went here for my birthday while in Galveston. The food was delicious (bouillabaisse, red fish ponchetrain, sea bass) and prices are very reasonable for the quality received. The desserts were also divine; we tried 4 different ones!

The best Seared Tuna in town! They always have high quality rare tuna for appetizers and dinner! Apple Cider Salad is delicious and so is the hot bread they bring out before your meal. Love this place!

I finally got to dine at Saltwater Grill over the 4th of July holiday weekend. I'd heard a lot about this place and it did not disappoint. I ordered the crawfish etoufee. It was delicious. I also ordered an apple strudel for dessert - also delicious. The atmosphere was really fun and nice. I think it's better for adults --... More

Lovely dinner at this restaurant. Our waitress was really helpful & knowledgable about all the specials they offer. My husband loves fish & seafood and was really impressed with his fish dish. Price was very reasonable too.

I went in on a week day btw 5-7pm. The had a list of fabulous appetizers for $7 a app. I ordered 3. Two would have been plenty for my pallet. Fried asparagus and jumbo lump crab meat, mussels & seared Ahi Tuna! All truly magnificent. Great place! Can't wait to go back!

Absolutely loved the service and meal. Ask for Byron, he was the most attentive and polite waiter I've ever had. Husband and I went in for lunch. Practically had the place to ourselves. Live lobster you can pick for your meal and free salt scrub samples in the bathrooms. Loved it!!!

Saltwater Grill is not only a local favorite but a family favorite when our out of town family come to visit. Asparagus with lump crab, seared tuna and dumplings are delicious starters. Saltwater salad not to be missed. Seafood all local and on this recent visit the snapper special was the best we've had. Other favs are the gumbo, shrimp... More
