This was the best seafood I have had. I had the coconut shrimp and lobster eggrolls. I would love to go again. We were there for a special occasion, my daughter got engaged.

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.

Lackluster slow service, very mediocre food...small fish portion served at room temp and pretty pricey. So many wonderful Galveston dining options -...More
