Saltwater Grill, which boasts a uniquely upbeat and casual environment, serves the freshest local seafood in creative and inspiring dishes. Two of their acclaimed dishes took home the titles of “Best Seafood” and “Best Pasta Dish” from the legendary event.

The “Best Seafood” award was won with Saltwater’s signature lump crab cakes. Made with fresh local crab, these famous crab cakes are known for the succulent blend of flavors and textures.

The Jubilee Seafood Pasta, which is overflowing with an array of scrumptious seafood, is known around the city for its decadence and delight.
