Seafood
Salt Rock Grill is a legendary beach landmark that has a burning passion for delectable food, enticing drink & pleasurable surroundings. Known for our hand cut U.S.D.A prime & choice grade beef, fresh dayboat caught seafood, raw bar & amazing wine cellar. Salt Rock Grill is the perfect choice for an evening of fine dining, superior service & genuine hospitality. Located in Indian Shores overlooking the intra-coastal waterway, Salt Rock Grill is your destination.
All of our Steaks are hand cut U.S.D.A. Prime or Choice Grade Beef from top midwestern feeders. We age them four to six weeks in our in-house temperature controlled aging room to develop maximum flavor and tenderness. Then we grill them over our natural oak and citrus wood pit fire. You won't find a better steak. Our chefs have developed partnerships with local fisherman and companies that provided us with fresh dayboat caught seafood selections from our gulf waters and beyond. Contact the restaurant for current menus.

Everything was great, as always. Our server was fantastic. The jumbo lobster tail and the lobster bisque are favorites.

Large groups in the main dining room that were so loud we couldn’t hear each other speak. Service was much slower and less attentive than usual because house was overpacked. Door to outside dining area kept swinging open for wait staff to go in and out and provided an unwelcome hot gust of wind every time. Been here many times before and have been pleased. Hope this visit was an anomaly and not an indication of things to come. Disappointed.

Filet skewer and lobster tail were delicious, as was the parmesan crusted grouper. Our server, Maggie, was attentive without being obtrusive, and was very friendly and informative. The view is amazing. Great date night to celebrate our anniversary!

From the sidewalk leading up to the door the experience started. The door was opened with a smile and welcome. Our service was wonderful and of course the food was fantastic.

Thank you all for such a great experience.

Ordered the jumbo ribeye steak and it was not up to the salt rock standards. No flavor at all and mostly fat and grissell.

Food was good, server was pleasant but seemed rushed. A lot of hustle and bustle all around the restaurant. At the price level they are charging the atmosphere should be a little less hectic.

Overall a good evening. Service was not up to par. Ordered house salad; never got it; didn’t pay for it so no harm. Just a drop off from other meals there. Food quality including freshness and preparation over the top as always.

Nice place with great seafood. Understandably since it's in a prime resort/vacation area it's sort of more or less informal restaurant atmosphere disguised as a high end place. Great views on the waterway, excellent food.

All steaks were tough and undercooked. They were out of smaller steaks, so had to pay more for larger steaks which made the quality even less palatable.

Salt Rock Grill superseded my expectations since my last visit a couple of years ago. The ambiance is always lovely, inside and out. The waiter (Austin) in the bar was very accommodating and pleasant. Our table server (Tanya) was delightful, professional and helpful.
Celebrating my husbands birthday was very pleasant and nice at Salt Rock Grill.
Our group of 4 adults enjoyed - Oysters Bienville, New York Strip steak, salmon, baked potatoes, a fish plate that looked great, I so enjoyed the escargot (very hot, be careful), Caprese (should be offered in small and large), and I also had the steak sliders, which I won't order again, as they steak tasted as if it been fried on a grill used for fish! All the other dishes were delightful! Will be going back.
