Knew to make reservations waaay in advance, & parking lot so crowded hubby had to park far up the road (no valet). Finally got seated, had to stand as we waited, no chairs. Brent came over quickly, huge specialty menu. Hubby had filet kabob &...these weird crusted scallops, sweet potatoes, green beans. His sis & I had turkey w/mashed & sweet potatoes, cranberry in a ramakin, but it was kinda cold. Funniest thing was it came 1-2 mins after the huge salad, & there wasn't even room on the table for all the plates. Much too fast, our nice waiter was even embarased when he saw the team bring them & we'd barely started salad & bread. Dessert was tiny pumpkin pie, nuthin special, much better was my apple pie. They were so crowded, everybody hustled, at least the view was pretty as ever, inside & out. right on the water. We'll try them again, I daresay. :)More

We can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was. 6 adults and 3 children. Our waiter, Adam, was attentive, fun, and took care of everything perfectly. The food, ambiance, service and location can't be beat. Highly recommend!

We were a group of 5. One of our guests has a severe food allergy. Not a food diet but a serious food allergy. One of the foods she is allergic to is butter. We asked if an order of rice could be cooked without...butter. The immediate answer was no as everything is prepared at once with the same ingredients and it sits until needed. Now I understand things are done this way for speed and accuracy. But seriously how long does it take to cook a small order of rice ? 10 minutes ? I’m sure we were not the first guests to have someone with a food allergy, and we won’t be the last. We felt they could have been a little more accommodating. If you go there with someone that has a food allergy be careful. The staff and manager were not very well educated on the subject. By the way, we go to Salt Rock about 2-3 times per month. It is still very good. Just be careful if you try to go outside the boundaries of what they do on a daily basisMore

Food and service is always good. Unfortunately without valet or some kind of parking attendant finding parking is virtually impossible. Can’t in good conscious return until the parking situation is mitigated. Actual Salt Rock customers shouldn’t be competing with “beach goers” for parking.

2nd time in 6 months that we've tried to get there, this time with a reservation. If this is such an "upscale" place, have a valet out front. There were NO parking spots at 5pm, and limited handicap spots. Sorry Salt Rock, I had fond...memories, but won't be back.More

Nice table on patio, nice server. We started with the fried snapper bites which were quite good. Our last 2 bites were claimed by a fearless gull, however. The wood grilled Mahi Mahi was not outstanding and the small filet was good but overcooked (ordered...med rare received med well). The server replaced with one properly cooked but this one did not taste good. I was very hesitant to eat it so didn't. The jalapeño au gratin potato side was delicious, the grilled asparagus side was perfectly cooked. Bread and oil brought to table was very good. Overall disappointed and won't go back but hopefully this was a one off and the other reviews are the norm.More

I just hate walking away from what I’d call a fancy restaurant feeling disappointed! You pay a lot of money, only to come out feeling like you’d have been happier at one of the less pricey local dives!! While we liked the stone crabs, that’s...kinda where it ended. You walk in and can feel the heat from their grill, but then your meal shows up luke warm? While it’s nice inside, the acoustics in there are terrible and you have to shout to talk to your wife across the table. Maybe we hit it on a bad night, but I’d have loved to have this night back!!More

Salt Rock Grill is an excellent restaurant with a great menu, terrific ambiance and an outstanding wait staff. Located on the intercoastal waters, this restaurant has a great bar and both indoor and outdoor seating. All dishes are presented very well, and the food is...always brought out at the correct temperature and amount. There are daily "early bird" specials that are a great bargain, and come with bread, salad and a small dessert to round out the meal. We have come here for years when visiting the area, and Salt Rock never disappoints! The wait staff is always very good, however, we had Ben as a server, and he was one of the best we have ever had at any restaurant! Attentive, friendly and shared information about the menu in a very objective and helpful way.More

We went for our 41st anniversary while staying in Indian Shores. Our waitress, Taylor, was excellent, so friendly and very informative about the menu and choices. We enjoyed it so much that we returned the next night for the early bird. Can’t beat the food,...service, or price! We can’t wait to return with our family this summer!More

A great early bird menu, well worth the price. Delicious fresh bread with oil, followed by ceaser salad, which was pretty basic (appreciate there isn’t much to a ceaser salad) but plenty of parmesan shavings. Mains were red snapper on skewer and mash with an...additional side order of roasted veg. Rock the Boat, which was delicious, similar to a fish pie and a choice of mash or baked potato. Baked potato ordered with sour cream. Sweet was ice cream which we didnt have as we were full up. Great selection of early bird drinks. Recommend this venueMore
