“snow crab heaven”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

First night in Clearwater Beach and I wanted snow crab. Chose Saltwater Café because of location. Loved it for the service and great food. We ate near the bar as it was inside and it was a cool night. I ordered 2 lbs. of snow crab and ate every bit. Yum!

“Informal goodness - not for when you're rushed”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Really excellent grilled and Cajun grouper sandwiches. She-crab soup was a bit of heaven! The order of fries could have been a meal in itself, and the cole slaw was fresh and crisp. This isn't fast food, though - it took a while to come out of the kitchen on a moderately busy weekday lunch hour.

“Casual and Fun”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Nice outdoorsy atmosphere on Clearwater Beach. I like the old Key West style of the place. The menu rated the baked stuffed grouper as excellent, and indeed it was. A pint of domestic draft will set you back only 3 bucks, most anything on the menu is under $15. The kids got a frisbee with their meals, everyone had a good time.

“Husbands BDay”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Went for my husband's BDay had the all you can eat flounder and Crab legs. He loved it and the price was great. Also the shots of tequila were huge and perfect for him, The weather was very cold out so the restaurant was slow. Which was perfect for us. The staff was nice and very attentive without smothering. We will return
