  • "We had a lovely meal.! I don't remember it being as expensive though. I think it should be between 2 and 3 $$$-$$"

  • "Last year, we discovered Saltus while on a two-night stay in Beaufort. When we planned another overnight stay in Beaufort, this was our immediate choice. We had the special (black grouper over pasta). It was outstanding. We topped it off with the blueberry cheese cake. Although the weather was a little iffy, we sat outside. We finished just before sunset and had a very interesting sunset to observe from river's edge."

  • "We've been to Saltus many times, and it is always outstanding--one of Beaufort's best of the best. It never disappoints. The food is fabulous and the menu has a nice variety. The grilled steaks and seafood are outstanding, and the produces is local and in season. This time, the chef offered an appetizer soup--red curry with a ceviche garnish that was exquisite--just the right amount of tanginess from the ceviche to complement the spiciness of the curry. We've also had the sushi and it is made right there and very fresh. The concrete bar, dark wood and high ceilings create a sophisticated, inviting atmosphere. We love to sit in a bar booth--great ambiance. The staff had our reservation when we got there--and our request for a booth."

  • "Saltus is the perfect restaurant to enjoy a lovely evening on the Beaufort Waterfront eating delicious local seafood."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Nice looking restaurant, but the food and service did not meet the expectations of the prices; perhaps a case of this restaurant being located in a tourist town. Their dishes could do much better with the loads of fresh local summer ingredients available to the Beaufort area."

    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Took a group of five, including two twenty year old boys, to dinner and we all left very satisfied. The great variety allowed sushi appetizers to filet dinners, as well as nice fish options. A great upscale place to go without feeling like you should have worn a suit. Good drink and food options."

  • "Overall very nice dining experience . Very good food and very friendly service . The only issue I would have is the dining chairs were old , somewhat wobbly from people trying to slide the chairs on the carpeted floor. Also the chairs were stained and the large overhead mirrors on the wall had not been cleaned for some time ."

  • "Dined with my husband, 93 yr old mother + her 98 yr old friend. Service was slow but polite. Were told the specials for the evening included swordfish which I ordered. 5 min later the waiter came + said the chef wouldn`t cook swordfish because he had 3 portions of another fish that had not yet sold. I thought I heard wrong so asked him to repeat. He did + I asked for the manager. I told the manager my problem. He left, came back + said the same thing. I reminded him that swordfish was on the specials + that was what I wanted. He left, came back + said OK you can have swordfish. Apparently as punishment for ordering swordfish, dinner took over an hour to be served + the place was not full. Will not be back - need a new chef with a brain!"

    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "The food is always terrific. I had the blackened dorado and substituted the creamy grits with stewed tomatoes for the potato side dish. The grits are to die for---they add a bit of mascarpone to make them creamy, then top it with stewed tomatoes. We ate on the gorgeous riverfront porch and were moved with no fuss when an inconsiderate diner at the next table lit up a cigarette....they comped our dessert to apologize for the inconvenience. My favorite restaurant in Beaufort, and as good as many in Charleston."

  • "Impeccable service, outstanding menue. Reservations are advised."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Excellent atmosphere, on the river, reasonably priced drinks and nice wine list. Blackened Dorado was outstanding as were other entrees. Only thing not excellent was the Caesar salad which was lacking something, but this should not hold you back. Highly recommended."

  • "The food was simply amazing very fresh and artful. I highly recommend the carmelized sea scallops! The view was beautiful, we would have dined outdoor but it was rainy."

  • "We were fortunate to be able to snag the last outside table.. it was cool outside but freezing inside with the a/c.. the service was every bit as good as the food.. This is just a wonderful spot to enjoy a lovely evening with a spectacular view."

  • "This was a great dining experience. We all enjoyed our meals and I really enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits. The welcome was friendly and service was impeccable. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "food service was slow on this visit, long delay from order to service. When food came out it was not hot. Did not mind the extended wait because we were with friends and enjoying a drink. Was disapointed when food came out less than warm which made me think it had been ready for sometime and just not brought to table by waitress. My wifes and sons steaks were both not cooked to order, one over rare the other over cooked. Have dined here many times and usually a very good experience for the price. Not this time."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Met for dinner with another couple, also from out of town. Shrimp and grits were excellent, ahi tuna splendid and salads surprisingly good. Special soft shell crab was not up to par, but it is a little late for them. Atmosphere was nearly perfect, except a little noisy for two couples trying to catch up on old times. Quartet played softly, but sound carried throughout dining room. Rain drove everyone in, or we would have eaten outside, also."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "The food was quite good, although two main courses arrived cold. The noise level made it difficult to talk. It appears there was no attempt in the architecture/engineering design to muffle sound. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "My wife and I were looking for a nice place on the water. The weather was perfect and the food and wine at Saltus was great. I had blackened Dorado with the crab bisque. The preparation was the best. This was a great dinner. I would highly recommend this restaurant and setting for any type of occasion."

  • "Visiting from Europe, we were searching for really fresh fish and great veggies. What we got was an amazingly delicious fish we had never tasted, superbly prepared wilted spinach and, oh, did i forget to mention the wonderful Massachusetts oysters and clams...?"
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "I ate dinner at Saltus on Saturday, May 17 with a bachelorette party. We originally requested outdoor seating...but when it was chilly that night, we requested to move inside. They accommodated our initial request and to move inside...no problem at all! All 7 of us loved everything we ordered...from the filet (cooked perfectly per our requests), sushi, fried flounder, scallops, and the market fish of the day: tile. It was the best fish I've ever had. The server was very attentive and even brought me another glass of wine (on the house) when one of us knocked my original over. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone. What a great dining experience!!!"
