“Yum!!!!!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

What a treat it was to eat at this restaurant. I started out with a warm caesar salad, Oh my goodness, amazing!!!! Complex flavors that blow your mind. The absolute best caesar salad I have EVER had the pleasure of eating. Then on to shrimp and grits, a low country staple. Again, the complexity of the flavors for such a simplistic dish, almost leaves me speechless. My husband had Triple tail, grits and collards and love it. There was not a lot of conversation at that meal. We were intent on enjoying the culinary experience. However, the ambiance of the restaurant was warm and cozy on a cool evening. A fire in the the firepit outside was a nice touch. Waiters were very attentive without being obstrusive. Did I mention the warm rolls...the best!! An all around delightful experience. We will make the 500 plus mile trip again and we will eat at Saltus River Grill. Additionally, the view would be beautiful at sunset. We were there late.

“Good service, great ambience”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Unlike some of the reviews here, we experienced good, reasonably quick service. Our waiter helped with interpreting the menu & was very patient in explaining what was what. The ambience is great, just our scene, with fire pits outside, & lights hanging in the trees, though we opted for an inside table.

We kept our dinner simple - clams & the fish dish of the day. Well presented. I do think at times that chefs should keep it simple & not try to mix so many flavours in order to "make it interesting". Good wine list.

“Meet your friends at Saltus”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Saltus is an upscale restaurant as far as Beaufort goes. Food is good, bar is fantastic and if your'e sitting outside, the view of the bridge and Bay is awesome. Haven't bee there for a while so not sure if the service has been kept up -was always good in my experience.

“Best Fried Shrimp Ever!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

My family went there because they love sushi. The shrimp were a complete surprise- they are the best fried shrimp! No breading, just some seasoning, so fresh! Selection of beers and wine were excellent. Favorite harbor view dining!
