There are so many good options to choose from. The seafood tower, a must get if you're a seafood lover. Crabcakes, calamari, seabass, seafood risotto are my favorite. I always get when ever I'm there. You can't go wrong with anything on that menu.

This was my first visit to Salt Seafood and Oyster Bar and was recommended by a friend of mine who dined there twice before. The food was absolutely amazing! I had the red snapper as an entree and the octopus as an appetizer. The fish was very fresh and tasty, cooked to perfection. The entire staff was great - friendly, energetic and welcoming. The restrooms were very clean and I enjoyed the salt scrub that was available - an added treat!

Favorite Seafood place yet. Great ambiance, service and food. Raw bar selections were excellent. Scallop dish presentation was off the charts. Fish prepared and presented impeccably. Our server was amazing and took time to explain and answer any question we had. I would highly recommended Salt Seafood and Oyster Bar.

Made reservations for New Year’s Eve and we were glad we did. Delicious fresh oysters and the best Black Sea bass I ever had. My only complaint would be the drinks prices for what you get. Overall great

From the minute we arrived it was a wonderful evening. The oysters were plucked from the ocean fresh the Tuna and Avocado was melt in your mouth delicious. Potato Crusted Halibut was Flakey and moist with aromatic flavors and a 16oz Strip Steak Smothered in a French Onion Topping cooked to a perfect Rare with a Grilled Rock Lobster Tail served with crystal clear butter to dip in and homemade Parmesan Fries made for two excellent entrees. Cappuccino accompanied delectable desserts Coconut Creme cake for the lady an Flourless Chocolate Tort with Vanilla Cream and Blueberry Sauce for me. The service was excellent friendly and made us feel at home. Salt is beautiful inside and has all bases covered with its team and its amazing food.

Always delighted with our evening at Salt. Food is exceptional. Tonight I had the Grouper special while my wife had the Snapper. Service is first rate. Tonight we left room for dessert. We each enjoyed our choices, tiramisu and warm apple crumb cake with vanilla ice cream. Javier is great attending to your needs and making solid recommendations.

Love this place! They have a solid COVID prevention process which includes taking your temp before you enter, hand sanitizer at the table, and all of the tables were at least 7 feet apart. All of these details kept my COVID nerves at bay and made my dinner even more enjoyable. The martini with the blue cheese and bacon olives were perfect, the oysters are always fresh and the head on prawns are AMAZING!You cannot go wrong here.

A birthday dinner here and everyone came to give DH good wishes. We had excellent service by Scott, who has taken care of us before. We started with a crab meat cocktail. The sauce was nicely hot! Entrees were the seared tuna and a coconut crusted grouper, both on the specials list. In fact, we don’t think we have ever eaten from the regular menu. All washed down with an unfamiliar but pleasing California Sauvignon Blanc. It was a perfect celebration.
