An informal place with a wide variety of seafood and daily specials. Quality of food is very good, chips served with drinks are addictive. Coffee and desert were just Ok. Service is good.

The place is small but big on taste.First they give u some homemade fried potato chips and were very good..Then my main dish was shrimp and oysters, the hush puppies the oysters and the coleslaw were awesome. But the fries were the only thing that was average, but would definitely recommend and come back again. Service was also Great.

We were in a group of 20 which was a bit large, but they accommodated us quite well. Food was out of this world. Would definitely consider returning if we are in the Corpus Christi area again.

Had lunch at Saltwater last week and food was excellent as was the service and appearance of the restaurant. Very friendly staff and service could not have been better. We ordered fried fish and shrimp combo and grilled Mahi with lump crab/avocado on top. Both were excellent. Homemade potato chips with dipping sauce are served before your meal arrives. We... More

This place has everything you would want when it comes to variety. Steaks, pasta dishes, chicken items and great seafood. Their fried fish is flounder rather than tilapia or some cheap white fish. They chef features are delicious and priced very fairly. In short, this is where the locals go to get great food without the tourist trap prices.

For seafood, this is my consistent favorite. That is saying something in a seafood town. Others might be on the water and have more ambiance, but for quality cuisine you cannot go wrong here. Especially the grilled items with various sauces, and other daily specials. Go at lunch and get the specials and really get a bargain! Very gourmet-ish! These... More

The Saltwater Grill came recommended by a frequent visitor. Your server brings house kettle-cooked potato chips to whet your appetite. We started with a dozen oysters on the half-shell, which were tasty and, of course, fresh. The pecan crusted red snapper was delicious with the right amount of toasted pecan flavor. Accompanying Sauvignon Blanc was reasonably priced. No room for... More

Even with our GPS we had a bit of difficulty finding this. It is located near a fork in the road and set back a bit. So we drove past it once trying to find it. But it was worth it. I highly recommend the crab stuffed flounder. Their bread pudding is good, but a bit too many raisins for... More

We had the flounder stuffed with crab stuffing topped with lemon butter and capers and a fried seafood platter with flounder, shrimp, oysters and crab cake. The batter on the fried platter was light and crisp and the flavor of both dishes was excellent. Our waiter, Timothy, was attentive and offered us lots of extra information about the area and...
