SeaSalt Woodfire Grill is not your average grill by a long shot.  I’ve been to a lot of steak and bbq restaurants all over the country and I can honestly say that the flavors they bring to their grilled meats is unlike any other I’ve had.   After speaking with the team at SeaSalt Woodfire Grill, I now understand why.  I have never experienced Santa Maria Valley style bbq which originated along California’s Central Coast.  This style of grilling gets its one of kind flavor by barbecuing meat seasoned with unique sea salt blends over hot coals of native red oak.  I absolutely loved it.

SeaSalt Woodfire Grill is where the wood fires of Santa Maria meet the fire pits of Huntington Beach.  It’s located on Beach Boulevard just a mile or so away from the Pacific.  Another great foodie destination for the city!

The bar serves crafted cocktails, wines and a good variety of locally crafted draft beers.  I start of the night with their Penicillin which is a mix of Scotch, Lemon and Ginger.   We also tried their Salted Carmel is a mix of Vodka, Coffee Liquor and Carmel.

Their Cowboy Caviar is a nice light way to start off the evening.  A mix of corn, onion, beans, avocado and tomato, served with chips.

One bite of their savory Smoked Pork Belly and Mac and Cheese will leave you wondering why macaroni would be served any other way.

How do you take a vegetable that many perceive as boring and bland and turn it on it’s head.  Well, like this!  Smoky Grilled Cauliflower with Manchego Cheese Fondue.

Tender, juicy and with that Santa Maria style bbq flavor, their Smoked Tri Tip Sandwich with Fries is something that will definitely be part of my future lunch plans.

Round 2 of drinks and our adventurous side tells us to try their Lunch Box Cocktail.  That’s Local Whisky served with a Pickle Juice chaser.  Let’s just say that curiosity can sometimes be a bad thing.

If I had to pick 1 thing I would come back for, it’s this.  Their Santa Maria Tri Tip and Linguisa.  This plate is so incredibly delicious and that Linguisa (Portuguese Pork Sausage) is unbelievable.

SeaSalt Woodfire Grill isn’t just about meat.  They know how to prepare seafood that’s just as amazing.  Case in point, their Jumbo Tiger Prawns and Snow Crab.

Their Bone in Ribeye is what all steaks wish to be.   Beautiful char with just the right flavorful fat content that will have you swooning over your plate.  Just try to act civilized before tearing into this 28 oz beast!

In just a few months, SeaSalt Woodfire Grill is already one of the best restaurants in Huntington Beach.  I’m looking forward to coming back not only for that ridiculous Tri Tip and Linguisa plate but because there’s so much more I’ve yet to try like their Smoke Albacore Banh Mi, Jidori Chicken or their Grilled Lobster.  Can’t wait.
