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

Service was great. Fish and shrimp were fresh. Preparation was fast, and the quality showed it. Bland.

We were in Galveston visiting and decided to eat at Saltwater Grill for a LIGHT DINNER. I ordered the Gumbo and my wife has the Red Snapper. The Gumbo was huge, full of ingredients and just fresh as could be. I asked for no oysters and shrimp in its place and they did it. It was piping HOT, crackers were... More

I found the Saltwater Grill 4 years ago while visiting Galveston. This visit I had the crab cakes along with a large bowl of seafood gumbo. The crab cakes were nicely browned and topped with lumps of crab meat and were delicious. The gumbo here is some of the best I've had outside of south Louisiana.Made with a nice dark... More

Meal presentation was awesome and the drinks and wine selection is good. It is downtown and they have their own parking lot, a plus.
