Salt Rock Grill
The menu is amazing, just for starters. Incredible wine list. The service is outstanding. The setting is GORGEOUS. The food is the star attraction, however. The grouper is AMAZING. The lobster bisque is the best IN THE WORLD. I’ve had it on 4 continents, pretty sure I’m right. The bread and pesto is delightful, and we were too full for the unbelievable key lime pie.
Island Way Grill
Twenty business leaders had dinner here in January. Service was great, food was wonderful, drinks were perfect, and the sunset was amazing! There was a large diversity in the appetizers (raw oysters, calamari, crab fritters, etc) and everything was polished off. Entrees ranged from grilled fish (Grouper with coconut rice!) to steaks and everyone was more than pleased with their choices. Could not have asked for a better place for great food, comraderie, and a perfect view.
The food was great and the view of the marina was awesome. They have gas fire pits all around the sitting area with comfortable couches. After we ate dinner we sat there for probably another 45 minutes just enjoying the view and scenery. The food is all fresh catch daily.
