Loved it !!! My boyfriend and I went for Restaurant week. The food was amazing. Only thing is it was outside dining which would have been fine but it was so cold outside. I should have layered up. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves.

The lobster Mac is where it’s at. The peel and shrimp are a little too messy for my taste, but the sauce is yummy. Also, the marg slush pops are a secret death trap, in a good way.

Quick outdoor lunch. Sidewalk was busy so lots of people passing while we ate. There was also a street performer across the street belting out some tunes a cappella. Great for people watching. Menu was limited but food was good.

Very good food. Service was outstanding. My wife sandwich was to spicy for her. They made her a new one just the way she wanted it. It was no problem. I had a great experience.

What an amazing experience!! Starting with Mike the server who was excellent with both his attitude, professionalism, positive energy and consistent food recommendations that exceeding each step of the meal from appetizer to dessert. The salad is not any other salad with the taste, flavor and size is all perfect. To the clams and shrimp (OMG) the flavor will keep you wanting more. Then to the plant based burger and the scallops 100.% spot on! Then to conclude the dessert caramel, cookie crunch pudding and drinks outstanding too! My I can’t wait for Larry and I to return but also with kids and other friends/family too! Keep it up and WE LOVE you all. Shonta

Nashville Hot Fish Sandwich was bomb! Fish was cooked perfectly and all of the flavors blended perfectly. Lobster Mac was great, peel and eat shrimp were perfect, and the corn is great too. Waitress was amazing and so nice! We went on a Saturday night and seating is in the street / sidewalk so lots of people and a little noisy. But the meal made us forget all about it.

The food is just absolutely delicious. And the service and staff are so nice 😁 With the challenges of outdoor dining, I am extremely impressed. And I’m not an easily impressed individual.

Food was good. Service was excellent! Do yourself a favor and order the Limoncello! Outside seating would not have been my first choice but they are making due how they can considering we are in a pandemic!

Fish had a bit too much oil on it, and calamari was a bit too over fried. Otherwise very good.

Went for a date night with my husband and I. The service was amazing. The food, undercooked. I ordered the shrimp and calamari skewers. Both undercooked, the veggies were slightly slimy..we would go back, I will order something different.

Food was relatively tasty overall. Calamari was nicely cooked, just a little salty. The seafood linguine was perfect. Also thoroughly enjoyed the garlic bread and red sangria. Perfect for a summer night out!

Salty's has delicious food - we were there this week for their seafood pasta special. We received garlic bread and a really wonderful salad for the table of 2 to share. Then ordered seafood linguine and lobster Mac n cheese - they didn't skimp on the lobster. Also got a pitcher of sangria and man it was good. Being on the sidewalk is a little eh for me but they are doing their very best! Service was great and prompt, we had a wonderfully delicious time!

Other than being seated by an alley with trash juice running down the sidewalk and the faint smell, the food was pretty good. Will be back just will sit somewhere else.

I really loved The salad and the protein addition options. I recommend it with the lobster salad. The salad has a hint of baby mint and dill that brings it all together and crispy onion rings are genius.
Only knock i can say is the soggy paper plate to eat off of but it’s a pandemic so I get it. There are a few dishes that contain corn so be smart about how you order unless you love corn as much as I do !! Over all fantastic summer restaurant and with the location being on 13th with that being restaurant row, it’s quieter there and less traffic. Hope to return before summer ends to try the Nashville hot fish!!!

Was doing HH nearby so made res for dinner, not knowing all of 13th Street would be closed for dining. Was a very nice experience, great weather that night. Food was good, about what we expected, service was OK. I would definitely recommend to others.
