Description: For everyone who loves redemptive powers of the sea and the sensual tastes of the very freshest foods and great drinks, the cure is indeed here: St. Pete Beach’s most festive dining experience, The Salty Rim Grill. The Salty Rim is something from the imagination of an old Florida dreamer or Buffet song. the fresh food is influenced by the great tastes of the Caribbean, Florida Keys and places that rim the Gulf of Mexico. But it’s even more than that, The Salty Rim is a state of mind; the nearest faraway place that the fun loving people of Tampa Bay can escape to… and please when you enter, be sure to check your worries at the door.

We had been to this establishment a number of years ago and could not wait to return.Since our previous visit it had changed ownership twice and did not know what to expect. Sadly our revisit was not as memorable as our first. The place looks a little run down, the food was very average and our wine was served to us in plastic cups because they had run out of wine glasses. Taking into account they had a unplanned coach party arrive, I still felt some improvement in the service acknowledgement could have been made.

It's been less than a year since we've been back to the Salty Rim and once again, our visit was excellent. The service was fast and friendly and the food was really good. Be sure to try one of their watermelon/basil drinks. Yeah, sounds weird, but it works. The blueberry lemonade was pretty good too. The Gulf Breeze burger was fantastic. My daughter's grouper sandwich was amazingly good. But what we enjoyed the most was the "junk" or whatever they call it. Scallops, fish, shrimp, etc in some sort of sauce. Ya gotta try it. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and they had very pleasant live music. Sitting out back in the warm sun, good food, good music, good service...... ahh...... that's a good day.

“They even have live entertainment!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We had a very large group of us and they accommodated us very easily for dinner. They had live entertainment that was great. I definitely recommend this place.

“Everything was great!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We pulled up by boat and easily docked. Walked into the restaurant and immediately were helped by a waiter who got us a table outside for 7. It was a beautiful day and they were busy outside. Our server came to take the drink order and kept them coming. The food was great. Wedge salad, carribean wings, tuna sashimi, burger and the kids mac and cheese with bacon was out of this world! Homemade!! The owner greeted us and made us feel very welcome. The live music was fun too! Next time I will be sure to sit inside just because they did an amazing job remodeling it. BEAUTIFUL! This is also a great place to bring your kids as there is a park right next door and you can watch them through the window!

“Nice outside water front seating - food and service - ok”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We went there shortly after the new owners took over. The food and service were okay. There are so many places to eat in the area on the water. We may give it another try after we have checked out many of the other places to see if they have gotten any better.
