Stopped here on our way through the area looking more for a water view than good food and we were very happy! We had appetizers at the outdoor bar. Service was excellent and I had the best crabcakes ever! Hubby had the Grouper bites and loved them. Both appetizers were generously portioned so we didn't need any more. Plan on... More

We had burgers and fries and malibu cocktails. All very tasty and acceptable. But the tables were sticky and every surface was grimy and dusty and in need of a very thorough spring clean. Won't return.

Although much of a bar scene, the food was delicious. We had the rubs and the macadamia grouper - both were amazing! Our server was very knowledgeable, and helpful with suggestions, and the water view was nice. Thoroughly enjoyed this meal.

The food was excellent. The service lacked everything it possibly could. It took 25 minutes after we were seated for anyone to even acknowledge us. The staff seemed lost and very inattentive. The food was great but I would never return. the music was rather hillbilly country and it is a very casual atmosphere not very clean appearing

This was our second visit, and The Salty Rim did not disappoint. Jacob, our server did a great job seeing to our needs, answering questions and offering suggestions. Lots of what you might call typical beach bar food, plus more interesting dishes as well, such as shrimp & grits with andouille sausage. Grouper bites were great. Pet friendly waterside patio...

We have had three or four great meals here recently and tonight was no different ... icy cold margaritas and rum runners, Santa Fe grilled chicken, and garlic roasted potatoes filled our bellies and satisfied the need for some local beach comfort food and beverages. Thanks to Bobby for knowledgeable and friendly service - we'll be back!🌞

My friends and I had a wonderful time at The Salty Rim Grill....appetizers and adult beverages were on point...and our server/bartender, Jacob C. was the absolute best--he mixes a pretty mean cocktail and was very attentive. Good times :)

Our table was sticky and our cutlery was dirty. When our food came we were disappointed too. The cheese dip and nachos were over salted, the wings were floating in grease, and things just tasted "off". Our first and LAST visit!

Thank svia1111

For everyone who loves redemptive powers of the sea and the sensual tastes of the very freshest foods and great drinks, the cure is indeed here: St. Pete Beach’s most festive dining experience, The Salty Rim Grill. The Salty Rim is something from the imagination of an old Florida dreamer or Buffet song. the fresh food is influenced by the great tastes of the Caribbean, Florida Keys and places that rim the Gulf of Mexico. But it’s even more than that, The Salty Rim is a state of mind; the nearest faraway place that the fun loving people of Tampa Bay can escape to… and please when you enter, be sure to check your worries at the door.
