    First trip to Beaufort and Saltus was referred to us by a Beaufort native. It was a delicious meal. The shrimp and grits my husband got were the best we’ve ever had. And my buttermilk fried chicken, collard and mashed potatoes were a Southern girls heaven. We sat outside and it was a beautiful view of the bay and a gorgeous evening.

    Crab cake seems like it had mayonnaise as the binder. Or, it wasn’t cooked thoroughly. Disappointed lobster roll no longer on menu. Bread not normally served. Shrimp rolls were tough. California roll was good. Wedge salad good. Sangria disappointing as limited variety of tastes

    Food was good but the menu seems a bit limited in choices. If you like sushi you’re in luck! Wish there were more seafood choices.

    Our favorite restaurant in Beaufort! Very nice atmosphere, excellent food, and great service. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and our neighbors' wedding anniversary and we were brought complimentary desserts to share to celebrate at the end of the meal, which were all delicious! A very enjoyable evening at a very special place! 😀

    Food was fair bit as I cutt my wedge salad a fly walked out from under the lettuce & just walked around the plate. (We were earing inside, not outside) Not sure if it was in the lettuce or on the plate when they put the food on it. Management made it right, though!

    Create outside, my great atmosphere. Would have been a little better and not been for the appy dog brought in by a customer in the next table, but that's not the restaurant's fault. My only real complaint was the oysters or very tiny. They got lost in the half shell besides that they were cooking up very good buttery garden garlic sauce food was overall excellent

    2nd night in a row. Great experience though I was somewhat ignored sitting outside. I don’t understand why everyone, not just my waiter, doesn’t make eye contact and say ‘hi’. And I’m not management intensive.

    We went to Saltis for our 24th anniversary. The server and staff were great, very attentive and helpful. The view of the river was great and the tuna roles were good. The only down point was my wife ordered the buttermilk fried chicken. The bredding was so salty that she could not eat it. She removed the bredding and even the chicken was very salty. Every thing else was great but I am a little reluctant to return.

    High end seafood establishment we looked forward to visiting . Disappointing. Hostess was young and cute but did not speak to or make any effort to welcome us, nor thank us on our exit. Bre, our server was good, but average. Wife’s salad was served warm rather than chilled. Her shrimp was good, margarita passabke. My blackened Mahi with Low Country Set was tasty as the pimento cheese grits and sautéed greens were stars, However the Mahi filet was skimpy for the 42.00 price and seasoning was lackluster. My beer was served just a notch above warm, not cold. Overall disappointing for the price and reviews on the place.
