    Great food. They asked if we were celebrating anything. It was my husband’s birthday. They had confetti and a card on the table. So thoughtful! 💕

    Our family celebrated my daughter's 23rd birthday at Salty's on Thursday (5/23/24). They had discounted oysters that night, which was a pleasant surprise. I had made reservations and requested a table with a view for the celebration. We had a wonderful table, already decorated cheerfully with an incredible view of the river and the sailboats out for a sunset sail. My daughter enjoyed herself immensely and commented that this is one birthday she will always remember. Thank you to all the staff that made this come together so nicely. You are so appreciated. I want my birthday there in October!

    Food was amazing! Service needs work. Took 10 minutes for waitress to greet us and take our drink order. After ordering our food we didn't see our server again until we finished eating. Finally it took over 10 minutes to receive our To Go dessert and the check.

    Spectacular views, excellent food, a friendly wait staff and buzzing with energy. What a great dining experience. Hands down the seafood chowder was the best we’ve ever had.
