On the outside, looks kinda shabby. But inside, it's clean and nicely decorated. Small menu, but everything was delicious.

My husband and I had lunch here today due to a recommendation of some friends. Our server, Jerry, was personable and so helpful in explaining the items on the menu. I had the chicken/spinach wrap with honey lime sauce and homemade chips, which were delicious! My husband had the oyster po' boy with fries and a Bloody Mary. The drink... More

Service was fairly speedy and very attentive. Menu included appetizer items, salads, sandwiches, burgers, panini, and pizza. I had a shrimp salad . It included grilled shrimp which was very good. There were a lot of spinach greens and a lot of large leaves with very large stems. Other than the shrimp and spinach there were carrots, pineapple pieces, bacon... More

My wife and I, along with two of our friends, decided to give Salt Water a try for lunch. None of us had ever been there before, but always commented about the number of vehicles in their parking lot anytime we would drive by the place. The hostess seated us immediately and our server was right behind her. We all... More

We enjoyed a wonderful Saturday afternoon lunch sitting in the shade of a giant live oak. Service was quick and attentive. Food was wonderful. I had the flounder sandwich on ciabatta bread with fries. My husband had a burger that was cooked perfectly. Fries were great too. We definitely will be back to try their brunch!

We discovered this little gem last year from a local recommendation. It did not disappoint! Beautiful outside quaint dining under a enormous tree with Spanish moss creates a magical canopy to enjoy homemade bread, seafood bisque and lobster special on a Sat. Night. Music is also enjoyed sometimes in season. Even in cooler weather enjoy dinner inside and maybe there... More

Every time we're in the area, SWC is a must. We always take advantage of the early bird special, getting seated before 6:00 for lowered prices. Grit cakes with shrimp and gravy appetizer was wonderful, but ordered by only one of us, yet the waiter's plan was to hold off on delivering the salads to all four of us until... More
