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.

Food is overpriced for what you get. Very very noisy...entrees only come with one side. Salad and a veggie are extra. Steak was overcooked twice!

Great food & service! The parking on the other hand is horrible. They let anyone park in the lot & its a huge inconvenience to diners who have to find parking elsewhere.

As expected, the food was terrific! However, the service was a bit slow compared to our other visits. The waitress was extremely apologetic but appreciative of our understanding of her situation. Since she knew it would be a longer wait than usual for the appetizer we ordered, she offered to bring our salads before the appetizer, which we understood and agreed to.

Came for the early dinner specials - FANTASTIC VALUE and super high quality. Appetizer, salad, main course and dessert $15 and $5 drink specials. The fish is fresh off their boats and the wait staff is amazing. Sit outside for the best ambiance - inside gets a little loud.

We all had wood fired dishes.... salmon (dry), grouper (dry) and 2 entries were steak kabobs, both dry. (Flavor nice) The side dishes were nice and the waiter, Jef was great. (One person mentioned their grouper was dry, Jef took that off their bill which was nice as it wasn’t expected, the rest of us stayed quiet until the car ride home. We had a reservation, asked to be seated outside but only if our table would be in the shade ... got there and half table in the sun. We hadn’t talked to a waiter out there yet but a guy walked by and told us to make up our mind . We guessed that would be our potential waiter so we moved inside... he told us to pick up our menus etc.and go see the hostess.
It was a special Mother’s Day lunch on Saturday and this guy almost made us want to leave entirely but we stayed and enjoyed Jef . Bottom line , been there done that and not probably going back. Too loud for the fact it wasn’t even full yet as it was 2:30 pm.
Nice wine list and some areas of the restaurant were very attractive; a few more noise canceling ceiling applications would help.
It’s that kind of place when you reflect on it the day after ,you decide that you don’t need to go back.

Dylan our server- THE best, attentive, patient, and kind! $15 early bird special was a great value! Raw Oysters on the half shell super fresh and delicious. They honored my online request to sit outside with the fantastic view, however my dad wanted a seat inside and the booth was clean and comfy! Love this restaurant!!!

Salt Rock Grill is a must dining experience for anyone in the area. It was very busy when we were there, but the service was excellent, and our server was very knowledgeable regarding the menu items. We ordered the salmon with garlic mashed potatoes as our main course. The food was delicious. Dessert was just as delicious, but was the topping of a wonderful meal. Highly recommend Salt Rock Grill for its food, service and ambiance.

We stayed 7 days at Indian Shores. We had dinner 2 times at the Salt Rock! We enjoyed the food so much the first time we had to go back. The staff is friendly and helpful. The early bird specials are well worth the price!

It was our first time here - 4 adults. Very busy restaurant with good service, food and drinks! Black grouper was delicious but you should pass on the shrimp seafood topping. The apple crisp desert was excellent. Nice views of the water and a pleasant time overall. We will be back.

Ordered medium rare steaks, all were done well well. Lobster and vegetables were cold. Stuffed grouper was excellent. Our server was nice and accommodating, and had the manager come to us about our steaks - they did take them off our bill.

Restaurant came highly recommended; however, our food was overcooked (sent it back) and not as described on menu. We would give it poor marks. Music did not pair well with the type restaurant. Outside bar area was the most appealing part of restaurant. Overall, poor value, disappointing, and do not recommend! except to have a drink at the bar.

Food was great. Had the specials for $15. Only complaints was our server. On the rather gruff side. Very formal but lacked any sort of table manners you would expect from a server, lacked warmth and didn’t seem to fit the role. Sorry.. I think he would make a better bartender or bouncer. Lastly, when I presented my hard earned Open Table gift card, the server had no clue, wasn’t helpful and returned saying they don’t take them !!! What? It’s a Master Card Debit. See, not a very helpful server. He couldn’t wait for us to leave so he could turn the table over again. I even gave him a 30% cash tip. What a fool was I? We were with friends we haven’t seen in 20 years so I was not in the mood to made a scene or stink, but I will on Monday with Open table and the restaurant manager. In summary, GO there! Food was very good. Don’t be cheap and enjoy the atmosphere as we did. We would come again.

Austin, our server was amazing! He was attentive and had excellent suggestions. The atmosphere is clean and I love the art that is around but not overwhelming. The grill had us salivating as soon as we walked in the door. Everything tasted phenomenal. We will be definitely returning
