Description: This beach landmark is legendary, and it’s still on fire with a burning passion for delectable food, enticing drink and pleasurable surroundings. For an evening of fine dining, elegant atmosphere, superior service and genuine hospitality, Salt Rock Grill is your destination.Come by land or sea and enjoy the finest dining location in Tampa Bay.St. Petersburg Times–"The first modern surf and turf joint on the beaches still packs them in with red-hot, straight-ahead cooking. Steaks are first-rate, lobsters monstrous, wine cellar deep, seafood and fish souped up in spicy broth. The unexpected treats are root vegetables, lentils and smart spicing"

We've loved it each time, view, service, management & oh yeah, the food. Easter reservations made, we sat immediately & Josh came right over. Superb service whole time.
Menu blew us away, had it whittled down to 5-6 faves, hard to choose from so many KINDS of fish. Ended up w/parmesan encrusted whitefish (can't remember which one, lol), & the BEST mashed potatoes w/bacon we've ever had. Now that's sayin' something when you've eaten for decades.Appetizer was delish portobella mushroom w/cheese & light bread underneath. Hubby had filet & lobster & the desserts were wonderful too. I had my hot apple crisp pie w/ice cream, sooo good, he had banana foster cheesecake.

I told the manager Garret (or Garrick, hard to hear), all the wonderful things we love, & how important the staffing is on a big day. They prepare!! So organized! Repeated Big Arnie like last time, we'll be back!!

While the area offers many places to go for seafood, no place balances good steaks and seafood better than Salt Rock. The staff is friendly and very professional. There is a good variety of seafood on the menu and you can also have a great meal while sitting on the back deck on the inter coastal

This place was always packed while we were in the area and local friends wanted to go so we made a reservation. Seated immediately but found the food disappointing. How can a seafood restaurant overcook the fish so badly? Grouper was not only rubbery, but tasteless. Scallop appetizer was good but fish was poor. At least they took it off the bill. View was lovely.

I took my wife of 45 years here for our anniversary dinner and was not disappointed.. The service and food were excellent as well as the fantastic view of the water. We went for the early bird specials but ordered other specials off the menu and they were wonderful. Our server was Keleigh and we were both so impressed by her positive attitude and great service. I would highly recommend this place for a special dinner or just any time. We will be back if we can get a reservation as they are always busy and I can see why..
