I had reserved a seat upstairs on deck but they said there was a mixup and put us downstairs. It worked out fine. Also one of my guests was told that the chicken came with the lettuce wraps at no extra cost but when the bill came that was not the case. All the food was very good and the service was good too

Food came out fast, as ordered and at correct temperature. Everything tasted good. We ordered drinks to start and then another round to be served with our main courses. The initial drinks came out fast and correct, the round with our mains arrived after we had eaten 1/3 of the food and my husbands drink was incorrect. Server friendly and knew the menu well. Unfortunately her cloth mask was too big and kept sliding down to expose her nose. Restaurant well set up for physical distancing with pleasant smelling hand sanitizer.

The service and quality of food were fantastic! The tuna nachos were a definite highlight. The tartar sauce was quite tangy but we liked it. The chocolate ball did not disappoint. Will definitely recommend and will stop by again when we are next in town.

Heard such good things about this popular local restaurant. Service was excellent but the food was disappointing. My rasta pasta was cold. Several people in our group had the salmon, which was small but tasty. However the side of green beans were tough and unpleasant. The one dish of butter chicken was delicious though.

Loved this place but probably won’t be back. Was there for Valentine’s Day, we received our starters and neither one of us got our mains because the server forgot to ring it in and we didn’t notice until it was too late and there was no one left in the kitchen. We left hungry.

We booked at Saltys because of the great experiences we have had there before. The 26 Of January was our wedding anniversary and we wanted it to be a special night. Our evening did not really go as planned.
I made the reservation with Open Table requesting a specific table so we could have an intimate evening.
When we got there the server?manager?hostess? sat us in the “Bar” area. I was hoping to be seated in the “dining” area. I asked to be moved which they did. Overall the atmosphere seemed lacking. The food was pretty good. Some staff were sitting at the computer at one table, another took beverage/food order and eventually someone else brought us the wine and dinner. It felt really unorganized. During our meal we noticed how dirty some of the hanging decor was (especially the fishing nets) and made us wonder of the overall hygiene of the entire restaurant. We didn’t even finish our wine and left somewhat disappointed.
I would highly suggest closing down the restaurant one night and giving the above eye level decor a good cleaning. Or replace with new items if existing ones can’t be cleaned.
I will return because l have had many other great experiences there at the restaurant and l know the potential it can have.

I choose Saltys for my Birthday Lunch. Great service! Nice themed decor with fish nets and oil paintings on the wall. We had jerk chicken and insanity burger - Double Yum!! We will be back in the summer for the patio looking at the lake :)

I would recommend but only during warm weather so we could be outside or up top. We were seated inside downstairs, not upstairs as requested. The table beside us was very noisy & irritating. The server at times seemed to ignore us. The food was good but our experience was not great. I have dined then before & it was a good time. I guess it was just one of those days ☹️

Make sure to make a reservation as it gets busy. Food was good. Upstairs is a more bar like atmosphere. Ask for the lower floor if you want more formal seating.

The food was great. I had fisherman’s pot !! Best seafood but be aware it’s spicyyyyy. I had the sweats for sure. But well worth the taste. My friend had pistachio mahi mahi and she also loved it.
The only thing is that we asked to be moved to a different table since we are short and we were sitting on high chairs. They couldn’t accommodate us, but there were a lot of empty tables.
So a bit confusing.

We’ve been coming to Salty’s for years.

The restaurant looks great, staff were all very friendly, we do miss the value for money Salty’s used to be. Expect an average cost per person to be $45-$50 when you add a drink.

The crab cakes are our favorite. Fries were cold, sub out for the soup or salad, you will not be disappointed.

Several tables were leaving at the same time causing a delay in paying or bill arrival.

We had a few of the newly added cocktails. Very yummy!

Overall pretty good. Service was a bit slow after the meal. We watched two tables who came in after us get served and bills before we did. We asked for the bills after declining the dessert menu to have the server return 10 minutes later and ask if we needed anything else or if we were going to lounge for a while (so the bills took longer to be delivered). We would have "lounged" but it was too loud for anyone to visit with anyone not sitting right next to them. The food was good and the reservation system from booking online to sitting at the table was seamless. OpenTable worked really well.

I read the reviews and was truly looking forward to the dining experience. The food was just a total disappointment. It was lacklustre and overdone. We had the lettuce wrap where the 5 spice sauce with the Chinese sweet & sauce just overwhelmed the whole dish. The salmon entree arrived with asparagus that’s so stringy & could not cut it. The fish tacos fared a little better.

Save your money and don’t eat here. The service though was very good and for that I tipped well.

Good variety on the menu and we had a large group of 12 and the food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal. For a large group I found the service was very good. I called a few hours prior to add 3 more people to our reservation and they were so accommodating even though it was a busy night for them. Highly recommend and we will be back again.

We were looking for a foodie experience in Penticton, so when we arrived and saw the pirate logo on the front of the restaurant, we thought, "Uh, oh!". Boy, were we surprised. Kylie, our server was absolutely delightful, helpful and thoughtful. Her fellow staff, especially Aaron (who pointed us to some excellent wine!) were interested and engaged in making the dining experience a great one. The food was outstanding - from the calamari, to the bourbon salmon and kale Caesar, to the ultimate dessert. A dark chocolate bombe filled with walnut gelato, topped off by piping hot salted caramel. Outstanding! Definitely recommend.

Salty’s is a must-do when we are in Penticton and it didn’t disappoint this time. Our server was super friendly and quick, and was very nice to our kids, which was really appreciated. The mussels with that addictive remoulade sauce was great, and so was the ahi + avo appetizer. The pad Thai is second to none. They have an upstairs patio for adults only, so there is a place for everyone at Salty’s.

There was too much sauce on my pad thai, it was overpowering. The other people at the table enjoyed their meals.
