A word from Salmon River
A very pleasing culinary catch can be had at the bright new Salmon River. Contemporary restaurant has a lean clean look with menu to match. Warm and inviting Salmon River has proven to be a magnet for seafood lovers.

    although the menu was nice and the food very well prepared, my husband and I left the restaurant hungry (and we're not the biggest eaters). I would rather pay a little more and receive a portion where the entree including the side dishes didn't all fit on an 8 inch plate!

    I have been to this restaurant on many occasions and have not been disappointed in the past and this was no exception. I choose Salmon River because my associate requested seafood. My dish was a mixed seafood grill which consisted of salmon, shrimp & scallops over rice and asparagus and my associate had salmon. We both enjoyed our lunches very much and I will continue to patronize this establishment.

    As the name implies, there is a multitude of salmon dishes available at Salmon River. There is also enough choices for those who prefer something else but you're missing something if you don't have one of their namesake dishes. Service is excellent, the food and the wine list are very good and you're not rushed or bothered so you can dine leisurely or have a business lunch without interruption.

    It was too quite. Appetizer options are too few, and don't fit the theme of the restaurant, i.e Salmon or even sea food.

    The salmon was wonderful - maybe the best. The prix fixe seemed like a value until you saw that the cheese cake was about 1/8" thick - about two bites. The sounds from the bar grew louder and louder until it was intolerable by the end. It appeared to be one loud group but we recalled that the same thing happened on our previous visit.

    I have typically gone to Salmon River for lunch and it has been consistently good. This time, I had dinner with three other people and all of our meals were very good. It was pretty empty (Wednesday evening) so noise was not an issue. All in all a very good dinner and I wouldn't hesitate to dine there again.
