                                                                For my graduation dinner I saw this restaurant had the best reviews so I was really excited to book. From the time we sat down, our waitress had a TERRIBLE attitude, like she didn't want to be there. Elaine G was the absolute worst. When my mother asked her about the oysters, her response was snippy and said it's in the menu right there. She didn't have any desire to help us whatsoever. Parts of our order were cold, last round of drinks ordered weren't brought to us until the very end, the manager (we didn't summon) came over to rectify some of the errors that we experienced, and excused ELAINEs behavior by saying "oh her birthday is at midnight". I wish I understood why someone having a birthday at midnight gives them the right to be disgusting. The manager applied discounts due to the errors and when we watched her walk over to Elaine to inform her, Elaine rolled her eyes and had a bigger attitude. I suppose she thought we wouldn't leave a tip, which we would never ever do... and although it's customary to only add gratuity on parties of six or more our table of five had gratuity placed on the bill. The drinks were good, the lobster was good, the service was frankly horrible and ruined the night for me. This was an incredibly disappointing encounter, and we should've requested a different server from the beginning of the night. If you're ever here, make sure she doesn't wait on your table.

                                                                It had been a year or two since we were last at this restaurant. The menu had changed and I found fewer options to choose from. The vegetable selection was limited to ‘root’ vegetables except for one or two other items. I thought this was a bit unusual. When I asked to substitute the vegetables served with my entree, I was informed there was an additional $5 charge. I thought this was excessive on a $35 entree. Note: this was not stated on the menu. Unfortunately, the only other vegetable to choose from was potatoes which I rarely choose and would have preferred something else, if available. To be fair, my husband enjoyed his meal of she-crab soup and whole branzino ($46). Had we not had a $50 gift certificate, he likely would not have chosen that item. Even with the gift certificate, with only one drink and no desserts, the bill was still $100 which I thought was on the high side for the meal and, in general, for the area.

Looks like they have a pretty good happy hour that we missed. The food we ordered was really fresh and very delicious. Really enjoyed the bronze rockfish. Not really a huge complaint but the side items were not very hot. The place was full by the time we left and I would highly suggest a reservation. They do validate for two hours in the parking garage which was really nice. We would go back for a special occasion.

Shrimp & Grits were flavorful, although more grits would have been welcomed. Bread Pudding French Toast was yummy.

The food is always immaculate, the service and scenery is great and the fresh oysters are some of the best I’ve had in Virginia. It’s the perfect date spot or when you’re looking for a nice relaxing restaurant with the people you love. Plus, $2 mimosas for brunch is a great deal!

Another 10-15 to get our drink. Then when trying to order apps off the happy hour menu I noticed the price was the same as on the regular menu. She didn’t know the HH price and said she would go check it. Meanwhile the person I was with had a menu that had a duplicate page in her menu so she couldn’t even see the full menu. By the time the server came back she told us the HH price but that it had ended. The time she said ended and the time in the sign was an hour different as well. We order apps anyway and my friends fried shrimp came out quick. I ordered she crab soup and it took a good 20-25 minutes after the shrimp to arrive before it came out. A manager came and said it was coming and the server came as well. And I told the server I didn’t want it anymore. It came out anyway and there was literally no crab meat in it. I was also still charged even though I waited FOREVER and said I no longer wanted it. We did not want to eat dinner there so we left.

Soup special (fish chowder) was tasty. Lunch, however, was underwhelming. The battered fish sandwich was super greasy and covered in an enormous amount of batter. Fish was dry beneath the batter. Staff is friendly and welcoming. A convenient place to eat if staying at hotel.

There was a large group next to us from the same conference and we heard and saw the level of service she gave them compared to us. She didn’t tell us anything about the menu or specials, didn’t check in on us and we kept having to ask others walking by for drinks. My boss asked the server when she took our order for 3 oysters and to choose her favorites as she could not decide. When the oysters were brought out, server set the plate down and immediately walked away without telling her which oysters she chose or giving any background on the flavor. We had to ask multiple times for our drinks. I ordered the filet mignon medium rare. Cut into it and it was incredibly rare. I sent it back and instead of taking my plate, she thrust a small plate at me and told me to put the steak on it myself. When it was brought back the young man sat it down and immediately left, again not waiting for me to cut into it. When I did it was still very rare. The piece of meat was too thick to cook evenly. The manager finally stopped by because our server was walking past without even acknowledging us. I told her my steak still wasn’t cooked properly and would prefer to just have the plate taken and to have a salad instead. At that time, had to ask for my boss’s glass of wine that she ordered minimum 15 minutes prior. The food flavors were strange. Caesar salad dressing was extremely lemony, the bread and butter flavor combination was terrible. Honey butter with herbs (weird in itself) and then the bread had a pine taste to it. Steak not cooked properly. The potatoes that came with it were over seasoned. It’s as if they are trying to be inventive with flavors and dishes but don’t know what they are doing.

They pair their items exquisitely together and the taste is always phenomenal. We tried the ice cream with the chocolate shell that you drop on the table and that was SO FUN!!!! What a great way to end a perfect date night. Thanks Saltine!

When I did ask for help the woman was slightly rude and appeared annoyed. Food was good, but over priced for what you received. Waitress was very friendly and helpful. We did not get seated where I made the reservation for but I was just thankful we were seated.

                                                                The food was fantastic- lobster rolls, she crab soup, and raw oysters were excellent. My gripe- we made 2:45 reservations on a Saturday. We arrived early (2:30) after spending time at the rooftop Grain bar- definitely a worthwhile trip. At 2:30 I went to the host stand asking if we could be seated before our 2:45 reservation and was immediately greeted with “you know, we close at 3, so you have to get your order in before then as we close at 3.” It wasn’t my fault you offer reservations :15 minutes before you close. As a customer, we bought all of your high ticket items- but felt like we had to hurry and not enjoy it because we were warned that you close at 3. The waitress was as nice as could be…. The food was excellent, but I was immediately put off by the host making us feel like we did something wrong by making 2:45 reservations. Maybe the managers should stop reservations earlier to accommodate the host. I would love to come back for the dinner menu, but was really put off by that comment and being rushed. So not really sure if we will. Quality of food was excellent, just had a very bad first impression

                                                                Went here for the first time for our 30th wedding anniversary. From the minute we arrived the service was great from our greeting to sitting at our table for two. We decided on some Raw Oysters for our appetizer, three kinds, and they were all right up there with the best we've had. We decided to go with meat instead of seafood, although my wife had the she crab soup and said it was great (not quite Manninos), but great nonetheless. I had a Winter Salad which was nearly perfect, as salads go. I had the Filet and it was filling and wonderfully made. The sauce and sides were great. The short ribs were awesome and certainly we both made good choices. Our server was great and we had a great evening at Saltines. Would highly recommend. Yes, it's pricey. But worth it on a meaningful night!
