We went to celebrate our 27th anniversary for a special dinner.
The staff did not disappoint on any level. The food, cocktails, service and setting was superb!
We always enjoy dining at Salty’s!
Andrew was a fantastic server as always. The food was great. We sat outside. The weather was perfect.
Salty's continues to be our favorite lunch spot!
Food and service was awesome!!! Great view of the sail boats that were out sailing.
service was great , so was the steak, grilled halibut and crab cakes. nice to be outside and see all of the sailboats and the sunset.
Great place. Good food and excellent service. Will be back soon
Tomi, thank you so much for joining us. We appreciate this review and look forward to your next visit.
We have been coming to Salty’s for years. The quality of food seems to have slipped a notch. The coconut shrimp was tuff. The fish taco’s we’re average, not exceptional
The service was outstanding and the ambiance right in the river was so beautiful. We all ordered Crab Louis salad. It was good, but quite ordinary, both in presentation and taste. The chowder was delicious. We also ordered key lime pie, which we all agreed was some of the best we had ever had. . I would like to come back and try a fish dish.
Great table, great service and, as always, amazing food!
Salty's is a very nice place the food and service is top notch. there dinner menu is great always fresh they have an appetizer deal during happy hour which is fun and there Sunday brunch can not be topped. a bit spendy but a very good value for a nice meal its a place i go to celebrate an event or whenever out of town guest come in. they have a full bar with a wide selection of drink selections and a wine list as you would expect at a high end restaurant. high end food and drink and a friendly helpful staff.
I forgot just how awesome Salty’s was. Absolutely perfect lunch! We enjoyed our steelhead, garlic prawns, calamari, seafood chowder (thick and full of goodies), fresh raw oysters (small and tender), and a huge piece of carrot cake that was not too sweet.
Our waiter, Michael was very knowledgeable and helped us make our choices.
It was a perfect day to sit outside in a shady area.
Amazing Fish & Chips ever! We flew here to celebrate a birthday from San Diego! Worth the trip and then on to the wine country!
Sat outside with heat lamps. Our three year old loved watching the boats and planes go by. The planes came times be loud but you can still hear over them. The service is the best I've had. They are very accommodating, helpful and available without being pushy or annoying. Excellent wine service. The food is a little pricey but for the most part it is excellent. Great seafood. You can easily spend over $80 or as little $30 depending on what you pick. Kid's menu is actually very reasonable and my child loved everything he got.
We had a great time at Salty’s for an early Mother’s Day celebration. The food was out of this world, plating was beautiful and our food was delicious. I don’t care to go out much because we are a family of great cooks - there is no way I could replicate our meals.
Save room for dessert, it’s worth it too!
Went there for mother’s Day brunch and had a wonderful time. The service was stellar and the food was fresh and wonderful. Will definitely go back again.
Great Food and view, too many refreshing choices! Great way to spend our 37th Wedding Anniversary.
We were surprised with a slice of birthday cake for our birthdays!
We have SO enjoyed dining at Salty's. We have a favorite server, Kyle. Greets us with
our drinks of choice and we always enjoy the food options. Of course, you can't beat the river views. Always a treat.
My server was very polite and very professional as he recognised my partner was not drinking when he offered us a celebration drink on the house for our anniversary which was very nice and thoughtful of restaurant. Food was delicious I would definitely come again!
We were seated outside because of Oregon’s new ruling due to an upsurge in Covid cases. The patio was noisy with the planes landing and taking off. It was a little hard to talk. Other than that, we had an excellent meal, with a wonderful waitress named Christian taking very good cate of us. We hope to return when we can be seated inside. We really miss Salty’s Sat & Sun Brunch.
totally excellent location on the river with a really good chef and well-trained staff that provides spot-on service.

Outdoor dining here isn't like other outdoor dining. You not only get that amazing view you get to be shielded from not only wind but rain. I was lucky enough to get in on a day with some rain outside and I was extremely happy with my visit.
Once again, a wonderful dinner was had. Salty’s is our special occasion restaurant. It never disappoints. Unfortunately we were told the day of our reservation that they were back to outdoor dining. It wasn’t an issue at all since the patio was covered and there were plenty of heaters to keep us warm. I have to use a walker and they couldn’t have been more helpful!
The three of us are so looking forward to our next celebration.
Waiter was excellent. Helped us make the right food selections. Thank you.
every thing was very well presented and the food wasvery tasty compliments all around.
Great breakfast spot awesome service
We celebrated our anniversary here and sat out on the patio due to covid. Staff made our night feel special and food and drinks were amazing. Even provided a complimentary dessert.
Great service! Attentive to the details. The fish was cooked perfectly.
Food is way overpriced and not enough bang for your buck
A must see stop in Portland. Right on the Columbia with great sunset views. Food is good. My wife made a meal of the Dungeness crab legs and I had the smoked steelhead. Both were great
Salty’s is always a great experience! We had a lovely time.
Please update the furniture in the restaurant. Other than that pretty good place.
Great way to spend 15th birthday dinner with the family
We sat outside and had an awesome meal plus the server was double awesome. THANKS
My husband and I celebrated our 41st anniversary at Salty’s. We enjoyed our lunch recieving a friendly service in a caring environment. Food is fantastic and e verthing was worth the value.
Was all good! Very nice place and people.
Shrimp cocktail was generous (5 or 6 very large shrimp) with spicy sauce. The fish and chips were hot and crispy while the fish itself was tender, moist and lightly flavored. I may split the F & C with my husband next time and then get one of more of their side dishes. The crab legs looked very tempting.
The food and our server were outstanding! Salmon and crab legs were delicious. My husband was amazed by the number of prawns in his prawn pasta. The front was a little less outstanding - hostess was okay, but not as professional as the rest of the staff.
Great experience friendly staff and the food was amazing!
Joe, thank you so much for joining us! We appreciate reading your feedback and are glad to hear you enjoyed the experience! We hope to see you again soon.
Easily one of the best dining experiences in Portland. Service and food, always amazing.
Natasha, thank you so much for leaving such wonderful feedback. We appreciate having you as our guest and look forward to your next visit!
We had excellent Pino noir and pino gri wines. My wife had an outstanding smoked steelhead. I had a superb hamburger with some of the best fries either of us had eaten. While the prices were a bit high, this was fine dining with high quality food. Service was very attentive (note: we were there for lunch). We plan to return.
Thank you so much for dining with us and leaving such kind, detailed feedback. We are so happy to hear the smoked steelhead and Salty's burger met expectations. We hope to see you again soon!
