Description: This beach landmark is legendary, and it’s still on fire with a burning passion for delectable food, enticing drink and pleasurable surroundings. For an evening of fine dining, elegant atmosphere, superior service and genuine hospitality, Salt Rock Grill is your destination.Come by land or sea and enjoy the finest dining location in Tampa Bay.St. Petersburg Times–"The first modern surf and turf joint on the beaches still packs them in with red-hot, straight-ahead cooking. Steaks are first-rate, lobsters monstrous, wine cellar deep, seafood and fish souped up in spicy broth. The unexpected treats are root vegetables, lentils and smart spicing"

Salt Rock Grill must be one of the best restaurants on the Gulf Blvd. Great place, great service, and great food (excellent Curry Salmon!). If you come before 6pm, great pricing as well.
The only thing I did not like was the bunch of political signs in front of the restaurant... I guess election season...

Easy to find and from the moment you pull into the drive you can tell the class of a restuarant, neat, tidy with vallet parking you really need a car to start the experience. Reception is a bit cold, but then they do not rely on tips but the waiters are proffessional and very customer orientated. Ask for a table that overlooks the intercoastal waterway as it will have a really nice view. The menu is amazing whether the fantastic value Early Bird, or the real thing. Now the important part, the Steaks, awesome in every which way they can provide them. I don't like fish but apparently they are equally as good. All together unpretentious good fine dining. The Keylime pie just about caps it off!! Be prepared and don't be embarrassed to ask for a box to relive the experience the next day. We have been every year since they opened and the pricing has always been very reasonable, and it is one of the few places that has had the continuity of management and staff. Looking forward to my next visit in December.

We have been vacationing in Indian Rocks beach for 9 years now and have drove past this restaurant a hundred times thinking by the "looks of this place" it was a very expensive place. Well........ after a friend told us about the early bird specials and the prices they paid we decided to give it a try this year ($25.00 for 2 persons).... WOW, was we wrong. They have great prices and very high class service. The inside is very clean and inviting. The food was awesome, the service was the best we have ever had. Waiter (wish I could remember his name) was great and made you feel like a "old" friend. We were seated by the window that overlooks the intercoastal waterway that had nice view. Even though we were there for that early bird special I looked over the menu and found the prices for the other meals very fair. Our meal was AWESOME. We look forward to returning next year for some more "Salt Rock" food and hospitality.

My husband and I were vacationing in Indian Shores Florida the week of October 6-12 2012. We had been told about the Salt Rock Grill by a co worker and decided to give it a try. We went for the early special, which included 2 meals, drinks and desserts for 25.00. The restaurant was airy and spacious with lots of seating room. There is a deck where you can dine outside on the waterfront if you desire. Our server was named Greg and he was so pleasant and attentive but not overbearing and annoying like some can be. He told us about the specials and brought some fresh bread to the table while we waited on our meal. People were starting to come in quickly after we arrived, and even though they seemed pretty busy, the service was great and the meal arrived quickly. I had the Filet Mignon K-Bobs and my husband had the Shrimp Pasta. Both dishes were cooked exactly as ordered and were delicious. Greg stayed very attentive and kept our drinks filled when needed. The small dessert cups of some apple crisp dessert was very good and just the right amount. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Indian Shores/Clearwater area.
