The restaurant was nice and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our waiter, Alex, was personable. We had gone for dinner, first time at Salt Water Creek and the had varying view on the food. I had the Pork Chops with Mac and Cheese, 2 other people had the Mahi. All three of us were disappointed with our food.... More

My apologizes about the food not being to your liking! I have since checked to make sure of the quality of each item listed in your review and talked with our chefs on making sure each dish is prepared the same way each time. I sincerely hope this rectifies any errors we might have made that day! Hope to see... More

Busy night, so we sat in the bar area. The service was still fast and friendly. The crab cake sandwich was delicious, as was the burger. Loved the sweet potato fries! And the bill with three drinks was less than $50. Will go back!

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

Thank you for the great review! One thing I've begun to notice when looking at reviews for other restaurants nearby that have live music, is that they play it waaaaaay to loud. To the point that you can't hear the person at your table talking lol. Volume control is a wonderful thing :) Again, thank you for the wonderful review!... 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

Thank you for the detailed review! Always appreciate feedback from our customers so we know how were doing here. I think you make a great point about the ratio on the grilled shrimp salad. I will be talking with the chefs about it so that we can better equalize everything on the plate. Look forward to seeing you all again... More
