We came back to this restaurant on the water for the view and a later night meal. We will now be bringing back family and friends for the food and friendliness. We have traveled "a lot" and eaten at some great places, but the location and the reputation are not what brings us back to our favorite places...it is always the food. I am so glad that we have found a new favorite restaurant where the fresh food prepared from recipes that 'Chef' has acquired from around the world fits our definition of a simply great meal. Ask about the specials of the day, come back for Sunday brunch ( which we have already done), and be prepared to be impressed. ( Did I mention at a very reasonable price). Chef David is a delight and we are sooo glad we have found him and his new home at Saltwater Grill.

After changing hands more often than I can count, the Saltwater Grill has - hopefully - found it's niche. It would be really nice if it stays around for a while. The Saltwater Grill has become my favorite Swansboro restaurant, with my family eating there frequently when we are in the area. The food has really been ramped up. It's fun and exciting and the presentation and creativity are spot on. The atmosphere is open, but the views are great. The outdoor seating is lovely. The staff seems a little more open and friendly as of late and that's much appreciate. The prices are about average for this type and quality of restaurant. The Sunday brunch is really worth taking in.

We decided to return to this restaurant after many years.
We sat on the enclosed upper deck where the view is the best and there was also live music being played.
We ordered calamari as appetizer which was delicious. For main course we had shrimp and grits with creole souce which was delicious and grilled tuna which was good but lacked some kind of souce to enrich its flavor.
Nevertheless, the experience was very good and we intend to come back another day.

I came in and had lunch at Saltwater Grill last week and i must say I enjoyed the entire experience. The waitress was great and very attentive. She recommended the grilled shrimp tacos and they were delicious! The food came quick and was hot. I will definitely be back again with my family!

Great location on the water, sat on the patio to watch the sunset and it was amazing. Catch of the day was awesome as was the crab cakes. Dessert was amazing too!
