Made reservations for brunch with the outdoor seating option but was able to sit indoors. The meal was excellent and the seating was well spaced.

They set up rose petals on the table and a nice card and comped dessert for our anniversary. The staff was super nice about my gluten free restriction too. Thanks Salty’s :)

We have been to Salty’s the last 2 weekends in a row! We were craving the seafood trio and being we are both on diets, this was an awesome option to have. We had Kim as our waitress (again) and she was excellent. Although COVID has changed the way we dine out, I feel like the people in the restaurant business are much nicer and more grateful for their jobs. I hope when things go back to “normal”, they stay this way - and same with diners!

A gentleman who had too much to drink came in and sat out on the covered patio. The manager did an awesome job of chatting with him, bringing him bread for free and treating him with respect. The man was a little obnoxious but the manager did a great job handling the difficult situation and keeping him occupied so he didn't bother the other patrons.

Quiet is good! We will be coming back, definitely.
One small thing: On the reservation page, there was no option for inside dining, although in the event we did dine inside. I realize that this is because of the covid lockdown, but you might revise that choice with "inside dining preferred". And point out that if it's really crowded, folks might need to wait a bit. Yeah, I know, it's tricky. So do what you have to do.

Our server Brody was fantastic. Very friendly even though she had several tables all at once in the outside dining area.
She got us everything we wanted in a short period of time.
Food was fantastic and worth the higher price tag.

It was great, I mean the only thing I would be picky about would be that the portion sizes are a lil on the small side, but I’m a big guy so I’m into big portions. Then the waitresses perfume was SO strong, we kept hoping she wouldn’t come back to the table, she was very nice though and the food did taste AMAZING.

The view was unreal, so beautiful to see the sunset reflection off of downtown’s skyline. Go at 5pm, and you won’t be disappointed, if the sun gets through the clouds.

The outdoor heated tents are amazing with a wonderful view. Chrissy was a wonderful server and took my birthday lunch over the top. Absolutely exceeded my expectations. $2 oysters were fresh and delicious and so was the steamed clams. The poke was also a good dish. We loved the oysters so much we had 2 dozen! They even gave us a complimentary cake. So wonderful! 100% recommend making a reservation and going there. Next time we go we need to try their brunch menu, it seems like everyone was ordering from there.
