Great all round. Visiting Beaufort for our anniversary and Saltus was highly recommended. We happened to be there during restaurant week and it was great.

Food was good for Restaurant Week. However, the Caesar Salad consisted of lettuce and a tablespoon of watered down dressing. Definitely not up to their standards.

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..

We decided to give it a try, the waiter was great actually the best part. We had a table of people even older than us and they were extremely loud. The food was good, but I hoped for great. I would still recommend trying it for yourself.

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.

The Saltus is a great place to dine. We had a group of eight and everyone was pleased with their meal. I ordered the Halibut special and it was divine. The only negative is the noise level.

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.
