went with family. very busy meaning a long wait for a table. We opted to sit at the bar which was fine. We enjoyed apps and salads. Everything was excellent. The fresh oyster sampler was wonderful. Steak tartare was as well. I recommended the kale caesar salad very delish!

On a recent visit I ordered the Coconut Shrimp. This is something I have ordered for years at various restaurants. The Coconut Shrimp at Salt Rock were by far the worst I ever had. They were cooked in OLD oil/grease that spoiled the taste of the shrimp. The sauce accompanying the shrimp lacked flavor too. This dish caused indigestion for... More

My wife and i are snowbirds and we usually dine here 3-4 times per year, usually with friends. The service is still very good, the atmosphere outdoors is excellent, but the food has gone downhill, while the prices have risen. We won't stop going to Salt Rock, but it will be less frequent.

The cuisine is adequate. The service was hit or miss. The costs outweigh the benefit. We merely had some wine, steak with potato, grouper with potato and a 6 piece oyster dish... when it was all said and done, it was over 129 dollars. We believe it is way overpriced. It's time to part ways and find a more suitable... More

Perspective. The higher the prices, the higher my expectations. Up front I confess we did NOT purchase a $2995.00 per bottle of vino. There were over one hundred offerings of wine. There were several draft beers, however the menu failed to explain their pedigree; i.e., pilsner, lager etc. One server did not know, the 2nd had to leave to check.... More

What an awesome restaurant. Our server, Kaitlyn, was absolutely delightful. Our meals were delicious, with an impressive presentation. We have friends visiting us this week, and will be bringing them here for dinner.

Date night for Valentines Day. Great cocktails, appetizers, entrees and deserts! A very busy night and a full house, And still the food was perfectly cooked and delicious. Our waiter was very attentive every though he was extremely busy. Would highly recommend the Salt Rock Grill.

We went to this restaurant after our wedding on the beach. It was just 8 of us and the service and food were excellent! We had various menu items and the only disappointment were the crab cakes.

Salt Rock Grill is a step above the other local seafood restaurants. Friendly and competent staff. The main offering is local seafood and shellfish, which are fresh and very good quality. There is also a couple of options for steaks and pork chops for those needing a change. Full service bar. Lovely seating on outside patio. Outside bar as well... More

We dined while staying at St. Pete Beach. This was recommended to us for dinner one night. Reservations are MUST! Upscale, sets on the water and enjoy the beautiful sunset. The food and drinks were outstanding. Tried to go back another night and they were booked solid. Valet parking. You have to try this place if you are in the... More
