Asked a year 'round resident where to find a good place to eat and she asked if we had tried Salt Water Creek. Fantastic suggestion! We never got past the appetizers! We ordered four of the appetizers and made a meal of that. Really great food! Ate outside on the patio (while it's not too hot!) and they had live... More

Have been here on several occasions in the past, last evening was with a large group of thirteen adults...all talking at once! We were seated at one long table as we had requested and had one server, I didn't catch his name, but he handled us with ease. Again, we were very noisy and I can only address my experience... More

My husband and I went on Saturday, April 8, 2017. We went during the Early Bird hours (4-6pm). The restaurant reminded us of the old beach restaurants, but with a touch of class. We ordered The oyster shooters, fried vegetables and the grouper francaise. Everything was cooked perfectly and was delicious! our server, Kaylyn, was so great at her job... More

This is one place the locals go for great food. They have specials each night and the locals know when to come. We have tried everything from the pizzas to the seafood. The portions are just right, but make sure to leave room for desserts. They are very good!

There were 6 of us celebrating our anniversary. We started with oyster shooters, mussels, and fried oysters. We all had great dinners, great service, and a great time. For entrees, a few had the liver, I had grit cakes and shrimp, mussels, quesadilla, etc. All had good things to say about their meals.

As usual, the food was excellent an everyone thought this was a great choice. The $3.00 drink specials are great, and we had "Oyster Shooters" along... More

Nice food, good prices. Wait person awful. Not personable, curt and not nearly as good as the food would have been if she was what you would expect as a server. Rate the service as terrible. Wouldn't eat in her section if it was free

Very sorry to hear one of my employees gave bad service! Wish I knew who it was, as that's absolutely unacceptable. You have my sincere apologizes about the service provided. I have since starting a new training class for all servers in my employ to work on providing top notch service. Hope to see you again soon! More

Ate here on a Friday, with a large group. The restaurant worked us in, no problem. Great service. I recommend the fish tacos -- I had them grilled. I think the large crowd here tells the story. There is a beautiful old oak tree in front of this restaurant.
