On a rainy Tues night it was not a surprise that the place wasn't very busy. A bonus for us older diners who like to hear each other speak. I had a blackened white fish, accessorized with carmelized onions, which I really enjoyed. Tom had a chicken roulade which he enjoyed. It was a lovely relaxing evening.

This was our 60th wedding anniversary dinner and we were warmly greeted with a "happy anniversary" by the hostess. Everything was superb; we had requested a window overlooking the bay and received such a table. This would definitely be a "must" on our next visit to Beaufort.

We loved our experience at Saltus last night! The restaurant is beautiful inside with a lively vib! We have also dined outside on their lovely patio in warmer weather.
Our server was attentive and gracious...our food was delicious!
My only complaint is that it is SO noisy, it is hard to talk....

We think Saltus is the go to place in Beaufort. We like to eat at the bar for a last minute bowl of soup, salad, steak tartar, or sushi. We also like to take friends for a fine dining celebration. They have wonderful fish entrees and can accommodate most foodies, even a low carb dieter. My favorites are the crab cakes, shrimp and grits, crab salad, and steak tartar. The bar mixes a good drink and the wine list is complete.

We have been to Saltus quite a few times over the years - the service and food this time was probably the best since we've ever been going there. Collin, (Fred as my wife called him :) ) our server, was very knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful.... The fried haddock that we had as a special was some of the best fried fish I've ever had.... My wife's sushi roll, which was also a special, was not only great to look at but delicious as well. It was a very nice evening out with my Mother in Law who enjoyed everything as well. We will definitely be back again!

Saltus has never disappointed in 7 years of traveling to Beaufort for business, I've eaten countless times there and it always has been a fantastic experience. In the times when weather allows, the outdoor seating is extremely pleasant and when necessary to eat inside, the restaurant is warm and inviting. Staff are fantastic and the food is at the top of the list of my favorite places to eat in any city where I go.

We went for New Year's Eve. Fixed price and menu with 4 choice for each of 4 courses. All options were very good to excellent in preparation. Service was prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. Have previously dined there and experience was likewise excellent on an ordinary evening.

Heartily recommend.

We have had dinner on New Year's Eve for a number of years.

This year (2018) I booked through Open Table.
The booking was confusing in that there were buttons for the Prix Fixe menu
as well as the regular dinner menu.

Alas, the regular dinner menu was NOT AVAILABLE. Confusing.

The cost of the dinner at $ 75 pp was not outrageous BUT I think that
next year will be different. The food was fine, the service very good but
the final bill of about $ 250 gave me pause: was the bottle of wine worth it?
Was the entire dinner worth it?

Again, next year will be different. Enough said.

We went on New Years Eve and made reservations through Open Table. Unfortunately we were not informed of a fixed price limited menu which was expensive and did not include our favorite dishes. Be aware of this downside of online reservations.

Absolutely great! Justin created AMAZING sushi for us. Our server (Kevin...I hope I got it right) was particularly awesome. It IS expensive, but the food is worth it. Great time! Every person that worked there that we came into contact with was great! Not often you find excellent service, all around attitude and great food in one place.
