My dad and I wanted seafood today so we drove around the beach to like 4 different restaurants and ended up at Saltwater Grill.
I guess this is how you make butter look fancy.
The Calamari wasn’t the best. It actually tasted too.. squiddy. Disappointment! I expected better. And they didn’t fry it extra crispy like my momma asked them too.
The crab cakes were decent. I enjoy crab cakes that are more crabby than bready. It’s more bang for your buck?
The crab stuffed mushrooms were the best appetizers we ordered! They were goooood.
My dad’s Red Fish Étouffée. I tried some of this and thought it was really good. He said it was cajun food. I didn’t realize ’til this picture that there was craw fish in it too!
I almost ordered this Grouper w/ Mango Salsa. Then my sister said she was thinking about so I told her to so I could get something else and we could share. Their mango salsa isn’t that great actually. It was just pieces of fruit thrown together.. not really sauce like.
My younger brother ordered Penne a la Vodka because he liked the name. Silly boy. He liked the dish though (I thought it tasted a little too creamy for me). Now sometimes he randomly texts me saying “shrimp and scallop penne a la vodka!” What a dork.
My plate! I got the Grouper Macadamia. Nuts on fish is goood! Note this is only the second time I’ve had nuts and fish on the same plate. The macadamia added nuttiness to the fish of course, and the sauce was sweet and savory. I can ONLY eat fish when it’s fresh and doesn’t have that fishy smell. Luckily, all our dishes here passed that test!
Crème brûlée for dessert. It would’ve been better if there was a bit more fruit on it. But it was still mmmm nonetheless.

Conclusion: Decent restaurant. Too pricey. The beach offers better seafood restaurants at better prices with a wider selection, they were just closed at the time.
I forgot to mention.. they have an aquarium! I saw Dory and tweeted Ellen DeGeneres about it, but she didn’t respond. =x
