We just left after an unbelievable experience at Saltwater!! Our server was Leslie and she was awesome! It is rare that we can sit down and dictate the time we spend at a restaurant!! This experience was totally different! Leslie was not pushy, nor did she try to rush us out... we felt that we were in charge of our dining experience! We will not only return, (the food was fabulous), but we will recommend Saltwater to all of our friends!!! We will always ask for Leslie!!! Thank you so much for such a special time!!!

My daughter and I were returning to Sun City Center and wanted to stop someplace for lunch and a cocktail. We happened upon the Saltwater Cafe and what a wonderful treat. I had the crunchy grouper and could have probably eaten two o r three more orders. It's a bit far for me to drive, but on a nice day there's a lot to see and do along the way. And thanks to our wonderful server who waited on us so nicely. I'll be back.

Visit Venice, Fl for a month every year to visit family; Saltwater Café is our 2nd most favorite restaurant in the area! Donna treats us like royalty and guides us through the menu as though she were a psychic;, especially so, when it comes to our exact wants in a great meal. She aims to please. The Carpaccio is EXCELLENT! As for me, I have only eaten the fish: in soups, entrees, appetizers . . . . I am sure that you will not be disappointed in your experience.
Waren im November 2012 insgesamt dreimal zum Essen da und wir haben dreimal sehr gut gegessen. Liebe Grüsse aus dem Bernerland an Chef Rolf und Pavel.

Hello! I wanted to take a minute to say how awesome Doreen is. We had a very large rehearsal dinner and the entire staff was phenomenal! But, Doreen went over and beyond her duties for us. Even taking the time to make sure the kids were entertained! Thank you very much for the amazing experience and memory you helped make possible!

The mother/daughter hostess combination of Romy & Katharina were cordial, helpful and delightful as was the food and service. My new favorite restaurant.

Thank you Chef for the absolutely outstanding pasta seafood medley you created for me last night. My wife and I brought our daughter, who owns her own catering business, last night and she raved about her sea bass dinner. We always enjoy your food but the evening was made special by the personal touch that you bring to your customers. Thanks again.

Saltwater Cafe is a great restaurant for all ages! They have dinning for families with booths or high top tables by the fish tanks... and a bar that beats no other! With some of the best Bartenders in Sarasota County!! They also have some of the best Servers and cooks you can come across! Not to mention Live Music on the weekends! Happy hour and drink specials! Man... check out the Martini of the week! Superb! I'm a local and it's one of my favorite spots in town! Hope to see you next time!! :D 4-20-12
In FL for a couple of weeks and had dinner here 4 times.. Enjoyed every night but tonight with Justin as my waiter and his suggestion to try the Carpaccio appetizer after having 2 dozen oysters was a special dinning treat. It is the best value in Sarasota not to mention the beautiful presentation. Thank you Justin for a wonderful dinning experience..

6/11/11 our first time having dinner at Saltwater Cafe - what a treat! Because our waiter Jake made excellent recommendations, we were more than satisfied with our meal. Having experienced many restaurant meals during our long life, we have come to appreciate the fact that it is more than the ambiance, and the food that make the evening a success. The person serving us is the key to the experience. We want you to know that Jake is an asset to your establishment.

My family and I stopped in the Saltwater Cafe while on a mini vacation last week and our waiter Chuck was wonderful. The food was great, even the kids loved it. And the free ice cream after the meal was great too. We are thinking about having our after wedding dinner here when we come down in November. Thanks again, we will continue to eat here from now on.
We just happened to be at the right place at the right time and hungry. It was Sunday at the Saltwater Cafe .. Brunch.. Their omelet with amazing home fries was outstanding. My 5 year old daughter had the fish "sticks" which turned out to be 1/2 of a fish well battered and she enjoyed the whole thing.. this was a new adventure. We enjoyed it so much we went back to enjoy yet another meal for lunch during the week.Fried Osters on a salad for lunch was fantastic...to top it all off with homemade ice cream... Just excellent. Back north but looking to the site for wonderful recipes to bring me back to the Saltwater Cafe.
stopped infor lunch had never heard of the restaurant. Had a hamburger and have to say it was the absolutely best hanburger I have ever had. Our server Patrick was excellent. Kudos to him. Will definintely be back next time I am in the area. We have already mentioned your restaurant to other people we ran into. We were there on Sept 21

went to Saltwater cafe lastnight 5-2-10, with my husband, his aunt, mother-in-law and father-in-law Bob Alexander, we had a great time and an awsome dinner. I have been there a few times now and it is wonderful everytime I go. The angus sirloin is my favorite. I do not eat seafood but tried the crab cakes and the maui. Both were really good. And our waiter was great. If you have not experienced the Saltater Cafe, you are missing out. It is a must try. You will not be dissapointed.
