We stopped by on a Saturday at 5;30. The lady at the door said we couldn't enter without a reservation. I said, "I understand, but 75% of the tables are empty." Her response shocked me. "Probably more than that, but we're supposed to say we...More

We are always looking for a good restaurant in Galveston. Most are chains, and we keep looking. But Saltwater changed that! Great food. Fresh seafood, moderate prices. Very fairly priced wine list. Service was good and friendly. Appetizers very good.

We spent a coupon of days in Galveston prior to our cruise. One of our days happen to fall on mother's day. Saltwater Grill was friendly and accommodating to our large party and our celebration.

One of my favorite after-work spots with great happy hour menu options and prices! Staff are always friendly and helpful! And the salt water taffy on the way out is a plus!

We have eaten there twice in the last three nights. The prices aren't bad and they have a nice menu. The service is good. The salads are huge so split one with your date.

What a disappointment. Our server, when asked her fish preference, said she'd never tasted grouper, didn't like redfish and hated scallops. Oh. Okay. Lackluster slow service, very mediocre food...small fish portion served at room temp and pretty pricey. So many wonderful Galveston dining options -...More
