Cowboys Salt Water
Cowboys interior is reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century fish camp with handmade willow twig furniture, old wooden floors, rusted tin ceilings with gator and snake skins hanging on the walls. Perched above wildlife laden salt marshes flanking the Inter coastal Waterway.
We just ate there three weeks ago and the food and service were excellent. We were seated outside and had a 2-1/2 hour dinner and the staff did not have a problem with that, even though they were very busy. We highly recommend them, plus they also own the Creekside Restaurant which is excellent.
Not as good as in years past. Small house salad swamped in dressing, tasty though. Frog legs totally bland; deviled crab a bit overcooked. Key Lime Pie was tart enough to pucker my jaws til Monday (we ate on Sat) but I rather liked it. Margarita was great as was the coffee - even for decaf! Hard to beat for atmosphere. Good service.
The family went 2 years ago and it was very good, a little pricey, but good. This year when we went the food was very bland and it was still pricey. It cost over $60 for myself and two children and like I said the food was bland tasting this time around. The wait staff were very good though and did like the atmosphere of the restaurant.
The food and service was not worth the cost of the meal. The location was unique and nice but that was it. This place came recommended and we were really looking forward to good food. The restaurant did not meet our expectations. The only positive note was that the waitress took the charge for my husband's meal off our bill because he didn't like it (his stomach hurt for hours after we left the place). I do not recommend this place to anyone.
We loved the ambiance of the restaurant, found the service to be good, but thought the food was mediocre at best. My order of BBQ shrimp on a stick was supposed to be grilled on an open pit. Instead, they seem to have been steamed and then seasoned with Open Pit. My wife's fried oysters were thickly coated in a bland breading and barely distinguishable from the hush puppies served with the order. My wife's clam chowder was barely warm enough to eat. Overall, we were very disappointed and won't be going back.
We started going here when I was a kid more than 25 years ago. Back then, it wasn't quite as posh, but the food was just as good. I haven't been in a oouple of years, but my mouth waters thinking of their starter salad with the apple slices and apple-y vinaigrette. And of course -- fried shrimp.
Don't complain about the wait -- with a view of the Intracoastal, it's all part of the charm that makes an evening out an event. Watch the sunset and enjoy a cocktail and get a Shirley Temple for the kids...
If you love seafood, you have to go to Saltwater Cowboys Restaurant. Everything was wonderful from the dinner salad to the entree and desserts.
Everyone in our party commented on how wonderful the house salad was. Even my son who isn't the biggest salad fan loved it. The salad was made with lettuce, spinach, onions, apples ad walnuts topped with the most wonderful apple vinagrette dressing.
Clam chowder in on the meu and i a must have as well. I would dare say there is nothing bad on the menu and I plan on sampling it all before I am done.
It is easy to find nd worth the trip if you are not a local. The menuand service will not disappoint.
