“another great meal”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Saltus is one of our fav's and since we had guests in town we decided to eat there. The menu is vast w/ choices for everyone - small plates, large plates, sushi, meat and seafood on the wood-fired grill - lots of choices. i had an Asian inspired meal - spicy fried shrimp roll and the pork-belly spring roll - both quite tasty and presented well. Two at our table enjoyed the tenderloin w/ truffle butter - yum yum - while the 4th member of our party had salad and sushi grade grilled tuna. All were quite satisfied. I must comment on the waitstaff, while we didn't notice the restaurant was quite busy for a monday, but our server, Mary, never missed a beat. Another satisfying dinner at Saltus.

“Excellent food and service in a noisy and crowded restaurant”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Both my wife and I enjoyed our meals despite the cafeteria like restaurant. My scallops were particularly good. We were very lucky with our service too. We thought that the chef and the staff deserved a better setting.

“Big Reputation, good food spoiled by Rotten Service”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

I joined the beautiful patio scene and ordered a glass of wine which had to be returned because of its dirty glass. Then, asking if there was a choice of oysters, I was told no but the table beside me had three options 5 minutes later. The oysters arrived with no fork, no horseradish and my request was met with disdain as if it was my fault. No bread or crackers were served with the oysters. Indicating I wishes to sample a couple of things I requested an appetizer portion of the shrimp/grits and a cup of soup. I was told the chef was unable to divide a dish so no go on that one. I was never asked if I wanted a second glass of wine; was presented with a "here's the bill, do you want anything else"? The whole experience was appalling, cost me $80 and although the food was good, the treatment was unforgivable. When I left, there was no one at the door to say good night or how was your evening. I might have let them know but courtesy is not their thing.

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

This restaurant has great food and wine from a good menu. The chosen main courses of salmon and blackened Dorado were perfect. We had excellent service from our friendly server, Belle. A very pleasant terrace atmosphere overlooking the Beaufort Marina.We would definitely return and thoroughly recommended.
