Galveston Restaurant Group's Saltwater Grill is one of our favorites, so we chose to make reservations here Thursday night before our play at ETC. We found a parking space pretty much half way between the restaurant and the play house and sat out on our date night. We arrived promptly at 6:30 and only about two tables were taken, other than a large party in the party room. We were quickly greeted and seated with iced teas in front of us before we knew it. Jeff began his meal with Baked Oysters on The Half Shell with a Rockefeller topping. These were on the small side but had a delicious flavor, he said because I don't eat oysters. The Seared Shrimp and Jumbo Scallops with risotto, peas, shallots, and mushrooms had been on my mind all day. It did not disappoint, although I prefer a smidge firmer risotto. The peas and mushrooms add such a necessary flavor component. Great stuff! Jeff enjoyed the Shanghai Salmon. He described the sauce as amazing. We skipped dessert since we were stuffed and not going right home. If they stayed open late, we would definitely be by for dessert following the play.
And, our guests Bennie & Patrice celebrated their 40th anniversary here Saturday night. They raved about the food and service that next morning during breakfast. Always good to have a positive experience for our guests!
