Parking is difficult for this restaurant. Not a nice part of town to have to walk several blocks after dinner. The food was good but not as special as the price would indicate. Wine was expensive for house wine. It does have a nice ambiance once you get inside.

Dishes we had: FIRST: Steamed mussels, in a white wine cream sauce. Mussels were mushy and had a strong fishy taste, several not open. So tells you they were not very fresh. The wine & cream broth was very bland. So we ask for fresh lemon, we added it and salt, which helped the broth. The bread was excellent! Ended... More

The ambiance is a delightful, yet classy ocean theme. The menu is upscale and diverse surf & turf dishes. Our food was amazing, but the crowning jewel was the Hot Chocolate Truffle Cake... Absolutely decadent!

Really difficult to find place to park near, best after 6 pm, free then. Place was nice, food was good, service was good, one of the pricier places to eat.

We went to Saltwater grill last Friday night and were surprised at all the new menu items. Standby favorites are all still there with new appetizers, salads, and lots of new fish entrees. We had the lobster egg rolls (delicious) and dumplings to start. New beet salad is a nice addition to my favorite saltwater salad option. Sea bass with... More

This was our second time to eat dinner here. Both experiences were great. The seafood was very fresh and one of the people in our party had a steak that was awesome. Casual to semi dressy attire- we saw Hawaiian shirts and flip flops and prom dresses at tables right next to each other so really anything goes.

The new menu at saltwater grill is top notch! We had reservations this past Saturday, though they were busy, the service never failed. From the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out, we felt special. The salad, salmon, and oysters were amazing. Thank you so much to the staff for such an amazing evening.

Excellent service and fresh seafood combine to garner an above average dining experience. I had shrimp and grits (I recommend a bit more andouille sausage) which was good enough for a clean plate. The etouffee was mediocre at best. I would recommend Saltwater and likely go back.

So glad I chose this restaurant for dinner our first night in Galveston. What a delicious way to start our few days stay. We were promptly acknowledged and seated, and had an excellent waitress by the name of Molly. She explained the new menu they have along with the specials of the day. Their new menu is apparently more diversified.... More
