I have gone to Saltwater many times and it doesn't matter if you love seafood, salads, or beef, there are great options for you! I love the steak as it is outstanding and my wife loves their seafood. Something great for everyone!

We have eaten here on and for about ten years now.The Mussels Diablo are one our favorites.The food is pretty good.The wait times can be very long.The place gets packed.The noise level can be outrageous at times.And in the hot summer months the A/C can't keep up.Add all that up for the prices they charge.....If it's crowded.Take it from me.Skip...

We live in Gtown and this is always one of our favorites. Not to be missed is the asparagus with lump crab, rare tuna, saltwater salad and lobster bisque. This time they had several off the menu specials so we tried the lobster egg rolls instead of the tuna. Delicious! My husband had the shrimp appetizer special as his dinner.... More

This restaurant serves excellent food, and the service was great! If I could give half point ratings, it would be a 4.5, but.....we shared a romaine wedge, crab cakes and bouillabaisse--just the right amount for two (60's) people. And our cocktails were well mixed. Would go back in a heartbeat.

My daughter and I had dinner there before a show. You need to make reservations because they book up quickly on show nights. We shared several appetizers and an Apple Cider Salad. Everything was amazing! I hope to go back very soon.

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.
