Saltus River Grill Ratings and Reviews
I misread menu thinking fried oysters and was step above raw. They gave me friend oysters even though not on menu. Also gave me a free dessert. Can't believe how accommodating they were. Had the most outstanding gal who served us. Thanks for going above and beyond to serve me.
One of our favorites, but tonight was a disappointment. Restaurant Week in Beaufort, but not busy at all. Server was not involved with her clients. We had a drink, ordered meals and wine. Food was room temperature and sent back. Not much warmer when returned. Never asked if we wanted more wine. Never asked if we wanted
D an after dinner drink. Just an off night at one of our favorite restaurants. We'll be back, but only because we've had so many excellent meals here.
Had visitors from out-of-state and took them to Saltus for dinner. As always, impeccable table service but was disappointed with the food itself. the bisque was watery; the salad had very little crab in it; and one dessert was actually returned as it was not at all good. Disappointing considering the relatively high prices. Have had very positive experiences in the past, but this one was a bummer and I was somewhat embarrassed that my guests were dissatisfied.
This was our second visit (in two nights)!
I just wanted to see if Saltus Grill was as good as my first impression. It was better!
Ordered lthe market fish whi ch was Carolina sole steamed with scallion and fennel in parchment over rice. I have enjoyed sole in many fine resturants, but I must say this was the very best hands down.
My thanks to Kathie the night before with her description and especially to Devon for confirming my choice.
This is a fine resturant for the discerning gourmet..

Our first visit was delightful. Tried the restaurant week menu and it was delightful. I love that they have a changing seasonal menu along with a few lowcountry standards. The soup du jour and crab bisque were outstanding. My favorite part of the meal was the country pate appetizer that I shared with my husband. House made to perfection and served with toast made from an artisanal bread also baked in house. The service was impeccable. The menu was creative, I look forward to returning. It is a bit pricey most entrees in the $35 range,
Food and service were very good although the restaurant is getting a bit tired esthetically. Bathrooms need a serious uplift with holes in wall in mens bathroom and stalls that are dirty. Would expect more from this establishment.
Management should walk around with staff and look for areas to improve, be it cleaning, carpets, walls...
We have been to Saltus River Grill several times in the past and were always extremely pleased with the food and the service. However, our visit on New Year's Eve was a disaster. A cocktail was served while being splashed all over the table, they ran out of certain items at 9 pm (on New Year's Eve), each time a plate was brought to the table it was presented to the wrong person, our wine glasses were refilled once with only one glass being filled, leaving the other two completely empty, the fish was fairly bland, the chicken was delicious, but the accompanying items in the dish were practically nonexistent ... and it was incredibly expensive. Having gone there in the past and having lovely experiences, this was a huge disappointment, especially considering the expense and the fact that we were celebrating New Year's Eve.
Very enjoyable. Decor is contemporary which isn't my overall taste but nicely done. Too cold to sit outside but loved the look of that space on the Bay. Food was very good. We had eaten at a couple restaurants in Charleston the 2 days before and Saltus wasnt quite as good but I'd go back any time. We both had seafood, well prepared and tasty. The chocolate pecan pie was exceptional. Service was very good. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Well, had to pay for parking in public lot next door, but other than that....... I'd recommend it. Probably not a better place in Beaufort.
We took a group of 10 friends to Beaufort for shopping, dinner and a performance at USC Performing Arts Center. Saltus was great in coordinating our reservation. The food was really tasty and there was a good variety so that everyone was able to find something they enjoyed. The only glitch was in getting our tickets so that we could get to the performance on time. Other than that, the service was good as well. We would return the next time we're in the area.
Saltus is always a good, reliable dining experience and tonight was no exception. All 4 meals were good but the turnip pureed soup was exceptional as was the Wreck fish special with pimento cheese grits. Colin served us for the first time and if anything was a little too overly attentive with frequent checks to see if we “needed anything” and asking how are meals were before having taken our first bite. Rather that than being ignored! We will return soon.
We have been trying to eat here since we moved to town a couple of months ago but it never worked out until now. The sushi is better than that other place in town that folks say has the best sushi, hands down, no comparison. The kids’ dinner made me jealous, their fried shrimp and French fries were perfection. My entree, shrimp and grits, was just as good as it was in top restaurants in Charleston and Savannah.
