Saltwater Grill Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
My friend had the Redfish Pontchartrain which he said was excellent. I had the crawfish etouffe that I have had many times before at thie restaurant - very sub par - over cooked and thick and tasteless - obviously been in the kettle too long. I can do much better that this at home. Very disappointing. Try to keep it fresh.
It was restaurant week, and Saltwater's menu reflected their regular offerings. The coconut shrimp were the best I have ever had, and my husband's red snapper was also delicious. Nice presentation of the salad as well as the entrees. Everything was just lovely.
We went for Restaurant Week, hoping to have the delicious cuisine for a better price. The meal we ended up choosing was from the regular menu as it was a better value, $26 instead of $34, for almost the same thing as the special. We split crab cakes for an appetizer, I love your crabcakes! Then we both had blackened redfish w/Ponchatrain topping. It was delicious! Our server was attentive and we timed it so there wasnt a crowd or unruly children. I will be back, I always recommend Saltwater Grill to my Airbnb guests and friends, saying the food is delish, the place is rather pricey and usually very noisy!
First night of Restaurant week and I had their speciality pot stickers. Red Fish Ponchitrain, and Bread pudding and my wive their house salad, Coconut Curry Shrimp with Asian vegetables, and bread pudding...all for $25 each. Portions were ample and all wonderful. Pleasant atmosphere and service...restaurant packed!
Came in on a cold rainy Saturday night. The restaurant wasn’t packed, and we had no trouble getting a table. Ambience and decor were adequate for the price point. Ordered the Bouillabaisse and the Redfish Ponchartrain. Both were delicious. Id say it’s some the best seafood dishes I have tried in Texas.
Although, our server was not as accomplished as she should have been, although, my main complaint may not have been her fault. I ordered baked oysters, my dinner companions ordered shrimp and fish. My oysters were brought out 5-10 minutes before the other plates. I tried to wait to eat my oysters thinking that the other plates would arrive soon, but, they didn't. I was finished with my meal before my companions received theirs.
And, the noise level was so bad, that we couldn't carry on any dinner conversation without raising our voices, which, we decided not to do, because, we would be adding to the noise.
I will probably not return, even though the food was acceptable, the conditions weren't.
