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.

Our server Stevie made a mean Washington apple shot. They had live entertainment. A man and his guitar. Very talented. The pain killer is a treat

“Friendly”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

Yvonne was awsome! Great personality and awesome bartender. Love that they muddle their drinks with fresh fruit. The bong bong shrimp is very similar to that other place.

Reviewed November 11, 2013

Our first time at the Salty Rim was so enjoyable! Our server, Chelsea was just great. We had fish tacos and pulled pork sliders. We sat outside overlooking the bay, watching the boats go by. Service was great. Atmosphere great. Really good food!!!

“New menu was awful, and so was the drink”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

I used to love this place and I have been recommending it to visitors. And then I went there! It started out with a mojito that was really bitter, this place used to have great drinks. Then we had the fish tacos...let's be clear - salsa for fish tacos should not have rosemary. Rosemary is a very strong herb that would never be expected in a fish taco - it was gross. A side dish of green beans was LOADED with garlic, another thing you would not expect at a beach bar. The 'new menu' is not a tropical beach bar menu and the food does not match the description. This place has so much potential but the new menu and chef have got to go.

“Best beach spot”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

My experience at the Salty Rim was very pleasant. The restaurant had that warm beach feel and looked very modernized. I was immediately greeted as I came in the doors and had a beer in my hand by the time I sat down. I ordered the southwestern crab cakes and they just hit the spot. The sunset was phenomenal that evening, while the band played in the background. This was an experience that will definitely not be my last.
