The fish tacos and seafood chowder were delicious.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Customer ServiceOur experience at Salty's on the Columbia was great. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, very personable and friendly. She up graded my dessert when she found out we were celebrating my birthday. Sweet! The Huckleberry Lemon drop I had was 110% delicious! The only "not so bright spot" was that the Citrus Salmon my hubby had and the ravioli I had were a bit on the dry side. That being said, I would still recommend Salty's to others and will go back and try something new.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FoodWe really enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Salty's. It was our first visit to Salty's and we expected tiny portions for large prices. We were very pleasantly suprised by the portion sizes. The food quality was outstanding. My husband's steak was the most tender steak we had ever eaten. We will definitely visit Salty's in the future.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved Salty's the foodWe loved Salty's the food was amazing as was the service, very attentive but not suffocating. The coconut prawns were so yummy, all the food was so beautiful and delicious too. The view is so amazing.

We will be recommending and returning to Salty's again!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Salmon on the PatioThe ambiance at Salty's, whether indoors or out, was casually elegant. The staff were excellent and the manager stopped by to see if we were comfortable on the patio and brought us an umbrella for the sun.
The fresh Salmon could not have been cooked more perfect. The meal from chowder to cheese cake was excellent. A very good bar and an extensive wine list. I will take my family there again. The only down side is it is a little out of the way, but so worth the drive. They had self parking or a wonderful valet.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience, again.Excellent experience, again. We will continue to dine at Saltys forever!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view on a beautiful day2 couples enjoyed a fantastic dinner on the patio on a Friday evening.

I couldn't hear our waitress explaining specials.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our AniveraryTrevor was our server and he did a fabulous job. Our appetizer Calamari and steak and lobster order were spaced beautifully. We loved that we were able to sit outside. The food was fantastic, but will say that the lobster did seem just a tad bit under-cooked. I'm not complaining everything really was delicious and im sure we will be back! :)

THIS is the difference between a cook and a chef!!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMService At It's BestWe were seated immediately and given our menus. The wait person was attentive but did not "hover" nor was she too friendly. Her explanation of the wines and her recommendation was superb.

The wait staff was attentive, particularly our Jonathon. Worth every penny!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood SeafoodGreat paella, colorfully presented by attentive, but not intrusive servers.
