Delicious meal. Had the red snapper with mushroom risotto. My husband red snapper pontchartrain. Fabulous. Will return on our next trip.
Unbelievably RUDE - Never got to the food
My girls and I booked a 9:15 PM reservation through Open Table at Saltwater Grill on Sunday February 18, 2018. We Ubered downtown, and on arrival at the restaurant noticed there were no other customers . The waiter was irratated. I told him we have reservations. He scowled and said, "yeah, well you here. We were about to close. We are waiting on you. We close at 9:00!" I apologized and said we booked through Open Table. He rolled his eyes. The kitchen staff was staring at us through the kitchen service opening. I said, well I guess we will go somewhere else. We are tourists and going by the information provided. The waiter said nothing, but AS WE WERE EXITING THE ENTIRE KITCHEN STAFF AND WAITER CLAPPED! We were mortified and embarrassed!
We went a block a way to a steak and sushi place who were more than happy to serve us even though we didn't have a reservation. The food was great and the service was welcome balm to the infliction from Saltwater Grill.
Nice location and we were given a small room away from the crowd. The waiter did everything to make it a pleasurable evening, however the rest was about average.
Awesome food...fantastic service...BUT-too loud to even talk. Couldn't carry on a conversation or even hear server. Disappointing...
Encourage them to improve acoustics and explore ways to soften sound level!
Disappointed! We are local on the Island and have been going to the Saltwater Grill for over 15 years.
The grouper etouffee was not good. It was overpriced. Small filet that did not taste very well.
We had friends visiting from South Carolina and we had bragged about the Saltwater Grill.
PS: We hope TJ is doing better.
Four friends getting together for first dinner out in long time. I ordered dry grouper atop spinach instead of potatoes/green beans and asked for as little fat as possible. When my plate came, food was covered with a white drizzled sauce of some kind - maybe sour cream? Anyway, didn’t want to make a scene, as we were out with friends, but it probably wasn’t Weight Watchers friendly!
Fantastic restaurant. Nice private room for a group of 13 year olds!
It's my favourite place to go WHEN someone says, I'm paying, where do you want to go. The food is always a winner!
The food was fabulous! Seafood or steak, you can't go wrong. The service was good, but not out of this world. The waiter seemed a bit new and not comfortable in her role, but the food made up for it.
The Lobster egg rolls were amazing! Julie was very attentive and friendly and recommended some terrific choices for entrees. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to any one looking for a special evening while in Galveston.
