Lots of very good restaurants in Beaufort, but Saltus is our favorite. Nice atmosphere, great views of the waterfront, wonderful service. But, it's the food that stands out. My wife's crab bisque was the best she has ever tasted, my oysters (local) were fresh. My blackened dorado main dish was superb. Wonderful presentation and complex tastes. Our waitress told us...

Definitely on the pricey side but the food is really good - but not awesome. We heard from some of the locals that it is maybe resting a bit on its laurels! We started with fresh and wood fired oysters and really enjoyed them. I had the caramelized sea scallops with ricotta gnocchi and the presentation was beautiful and I... More

We really enjoyed our evening here. The view of the waterfront was lovely, the servers attentive and knowledgable, and the food and wine were really, really good. We had a sushi roll (flounder) as an appetizer, my partner had perfectly cooked and seasoned scallops and gnocchi, and I had an excellent blackened dorado on a potato, crab, leek scramble that...

On a 90 degree evening by the inter coastal waterway in Beaufort, I decided to try Saltus for the first time. Although I've walked past the restaurant for years, this evening they were one of the few restaurants in town without a huge wait. The outdoor patio is beautiful and the live music was good and the characters singing were... More

We stayed in Beaufort the last night on a trip to Charleston and Savannah. I had wanted a nice seafood dinner for our last night and Saltus River Grill was perfect! It was a lovely evening and we caught a table on the patio with a view of the river. We started with some local oysters that were very tasty.... More

Don't eat there. Save your money and go somewhere else. If you don't have a reservation the robotic girl at the front will turn you away and tell you to come back until 9. She knows you're not going to come back. Meanwhile you're seeing all types of empty tables on the patio and inside the restaurant. Tons and tons... More

I had read all the articles and good reviews of Saltus River Grill so was hoping for a really special meal. Unfortunately it was just ok. The outside dining area has a wonderful ambiance but inside was very crowded and loud. The hostess and wait staff were not very friendly and the food was just ok, nothing particularly outstanding. I... More
