Seafood
Salmon Dave’s Pacific Grille has been pleasing diners with Guaranteed Seafood since 1993. The menu features a fusion of Pacific Rim cuisine with all-American favorites. Staples such as the award-winning Lobster Bisque, Sushi-grade Ahi Sashimi or our signature Salmon never go out of style.

Seasonal culinary celebrations such as the Maine Event Lobster feast and the Taste of N’awlins in February give Salmon Dave’s an energetic pulse you’ll want to be a part of. Located in the Old River District of Rocky River, the comfortable trappings provide the perfect setting for a light bite or a fabulous dinner.

    My husband and I had two cups of the Lobster Bisque, which is the best in Cleveland, to start. Then we had two orders of the Tail and Clam Bakes. The Lobster was phenomenal- the best we have had in a while. Our server was attentive without being annoying. All in all a dinner at Salmon Dave’s is always fabulous.

    So good every time at Salmon Dave’s!! we got the clambake with oysters, clams, lobster chicken, potatoes, and corn. It was outstanding and a great value for what was included. The drinks were great. The service was great. We got Keylime pie for dessert as well which was amazing. Basically everything was perfectly fabulous.

    Exceptional evening out with great food and outstanding service. I enjoyed the pan roasted salmon cooked perfectly with lobster risotto (which did get a little rich) and my husband had the simply prepared swordfish. portions were ample and service was prompt and very friendly. Stars of the meal for me was the velvety lobster bisque with a little kick and the silky key lime pie with just the right tang.

    Clambake was good - sausage was not very good - red skins were roasted potato wedges. Chicken was not seasoned at all. Little things could have made a difference. Maybe sweet potato instead of sausage.

    The lobster tails were tasteless and stringy, with drawn butter that tasted like no other butter I've ever eaten. At $58, a major disappointment. The accompanying asparagus looked like it had been sitting around for a few days; it was almost gray and eating it was like chewing rope. The whipped cream on top of the key lime pie -- too sweet, by the way -- was out of a can. I will not be going back.

    Disappointed in our experience this time! We have been here several times and been pleased. Tonight we waited for over an hour for our food and during that time didn’t see our waitress for over 30 minutes. We had to ask for our check from the receptionist and had no apology from our waitress. We were there for over 2 hours with a reservation and they were not busy. At no time while we were there was there anyone waiting to be seated. Food was good.

    The food was delicious as always. The place was packed, extremely loud, and a few hustling servers taking care of the entire place. We waited easily 30 min between salads and entree. We were not in a rush so it was fine.

    This was our third time this month to come and eat Lobster at SD. Tracy waited on us. She was very nice and friendly but I guess she is not a full time server and works in the office. It kind of showed. We asked for lemons for our water 3 times and still never got them. We took them off our lobster dinner and put them in our ice water. Then we never got a steak knife, we had to cut our lobster with our butter knife which worked ok. We got our lobster then had to ask for a butter warmer for the 3 of us. Usually it comes out way ahead of time so the butter is nice and warm for our lobster. My candle in the warmer wasn't even lit. I needed more water and two of us needed another drink when our meal was served. The meal was delicious and thankfully Jeremy was there to help out. So, the service wasn't as great at is the past like what we got from Sarah and Mac. We will still come back but you asked our opinion so I am giving it to you. Just a little disappointing.

    Lobster bisque was excellent. Service was excellent. Polenta was tasteless. Mushrooms were only average. Oysters were tasty but small. Cocktails were good. Had to request a new glass of Club Soda as the first one was flat. Bread was good. Butter excellent.

    We love to go to Salmon Daves for the Lobster Fest but since they are only offering $10. off the 3 specials (prior years it was $15,) we decided to go order off the regular menu. Both my husband and I got the twin lobster tails and they were outstanding!!! A little pricey for our budget but they were a special treat. We figure it's cheaper to eat fresh delicious lobster at Salmon Daves then drive to Maine for cheaper fresh lobsters. We did not like the sides that were offered so we asked about other sides we could sub. Jeremy told us about the options but neglected to tell us there was a $5 upcharge for getting spinach instead of aperagus. Then when my husband got the meal it had aparagus on it. They did give him his $5. additional spinach, a little later, which was not worth the extra money. Jeremy did make a delicious Cosmo! We will return there for a third week in a row. It would be nice if when someone wants to sub that they tell you exactly what additional price one has to pay. I do feel a little embarrased asking "how much" when we brought company with us for dinner. Not a real deal breaker, guess he's new to the staff.

    I wanted to share with my family a nice evening out and our main focus was to order clam bakes as we do at least one a year when in season. I never went to Salmon Dave's for a clam bake until last night. It was such a disappointment. The clam shells were the size of a quarter and the clams themselves were the size of a dime. There was half of a chicken, less than half of a piece of corn on the cob, some potatoes, a spicy piece of sausage, a small bowl of clam broth and a small container of melted butter, 39.95. My sister ordered the same thing however her chicken was bloody on the inside, sent it back and it came back still red. They did remove that bake from our check. We so looked forward to a great bake and left totally disappointed. I do like Salmon Dave's and we had great service. I will go back but never for a clam bake
