Great Food, Great Drinks and despite the COVID time limits our team of servers ensured we never felt rushed. Tables are super spaced out and there is a great outdoor space as well.
Excellent location. Server and bartender the best!!
Food quality did not meet expectations
Delicious food & drinks. Service was attentive & professional. Salt Line is handling COVID dining beautifully.
Awesome outdoor patio set up with plenty of fire heaters for each table, thoughtful covid-friendly protocols, and as always, incredible lobster rolls :)
Appreciated their outside seating set up. Even on a chilly, rainy afternoon we were warm and dry. The food and drinks were good, and our service was great.
My husband and I were meeting with a couple of friends we hadn’t seen in a while. We were able to dine outside in pouring rain very comfortably. We had a fire pit table and they also provided to additional heaters. We enjoyed great drinks and food with attentive service. This was my second time there and will definitely be back.
Good outdoor dining spot, heaters for each table that I saw. Plenty warm enough.
Menu looked great and we had high hopes for a cautious dinner out. Ordered the lobster pot pie. Pulled a long hair from inside the pie with the first slice. Kind server offered us a salad on the house while they made a new lobster pot pie. Halfway through the salad, we were shocked to find yet another large hair (shorter dark and curly). Hygiene concerns only grew when we realized servers were using the dining room mini fridge, which is intended to store the open mouthed bottles for table waters, to also store employees’ personal, opened-mouth beverages (Half drank McDonald’s coffees, etc.), all during COVID. Second pot pie was extremely salty and by then we barely had an appetite. Would not recommend unless and until this restaurant undergoes a deep cleaning and hygiene inspection.
Our server was amazing. The oysters were incredible, and you must try the pumpkin spice whoopie pie!
Fun Outdoor dining spot
The Pimento Cheese Crab Dip is absolutely the best!
This is my 7th or 8th trip to the Salt Line. As always, great food and service are the norm. This time, I tried the new Lobster Pot Pie. It was fantastic. It really took comfort food to a new level. I also ordered the baked clams which are probably the best baked clams I have ever had. They also have a great selection of local beers.
Just very underwhelming. The food was mediocre and the options were very limited. Wont be going again.
Was referred here by a coworker and really enjoyed my time to celebrate a birthday. Great oyster selection and the drinks get you just right. I’m sure in the warmer months it’s better being able to sit outside with that incredible view, but the dining room was quaint and sophisticated. And the staff is extremely friendly and suggestive when it comes to the menu. Will be back.
Limited bu excellent menu, well executed, one of our favorite restaurants in DC. Well designed outside and inside seating locations.
Great service and location. Easy reservations. Def check it out!
Had a reservation for 4 outside, but upon request at arrival, were seated inside. Highly recommended.
Enjoyed the Pumpkin soup and will be back to try some more of the menu.
Need more heaters outside, it was SO COLD!!! But otherwise it was so much fun. Great food, drinks, and service!
It’s a bar! The food is ok and extremely over priced but I get it. Oysters are good but nothing else tasted good. The service was prompt and friendly but not really helpful. I am sure it’s a great place before/after a game. I had hoped it would be as good as Rappahannock Oyster bar but it wasn’t even close! It’s COVID and I know nothing is going to be normal, I’ll go back after a baseball game once that comes back and maybe it’ll be better. I am sure the food beats ballpark food so that’s a plus. It’s like a better looking Clyde’s (pre-post Caps game bar) with a better bar but crappier food. Hope that helps!
We can’t say enough great things about the Salt Line, especially the heaters and patio throughout this long pandemic! Outstanding food, service and atmosphere.
Server was great and showed care and patience, myself just didn’t like the drink I ordered but that’s not on them overall I will be back
The food was amazingly good and paired with wine was like heaven!
Food Amazing, view amazing, Service amazing!
Our one Year Anniversary was a Amazing Experience with The Salt Line! My Husband and I had a great time !
It’s a fun atmosphere and great outdoor seating. Lots of heaters and fire tables
Great overall experience food was awesome and so was the service!!!
Great place for outdoor dining. Set-up is awesome, heaters are great and food is terrific. Love Salt Line!
They continue to do one of the best jobs in the city of providing an excellent dining experience during the pandemic that both makes diners feel comfortable and safe and allows enough of an escape to, for a few hours at least, feel like life is almost normal again!
Great dinner, followed Covid guidelines, will go back!
We sat outside on a cold day but stayed toasty thanks to the heaters. Our waiter was delightful. Couldn't love this place more!
Food, Drinks, Service 10/10. Awesome outdoor environment all things considered. Would absolutely be back. Appreciate the excellent experience!!!
Great service and the food was delicious. Will certainly go back.
We had a great meal on Sunday the 24 of January to celebrate a big birthday. We sat outside at a fire pit table and felt isolated and safe and as
Warm as we could be. Our servers and the woman who helped us choose our table were so wonderful and attentive. Couldn’t be better. We had a great time.
The seafood was cooked perfectly
Indoors was loud even with limited seating. But waiter was awesome!!!
Happy the dining room was open again at a favorite eating spot. As always it was first rate: great selection of beers, super burgers (mine), friends made other delicious choices. Cannot wait for warm weather, baseball and a crowded outdoor bar.
Such great people...
Had a great time and the outdoor situation with heaters is one of the best in DC! Cocktails on the menu right now are delicious and oysters were great, as always
I absolutely loved my first visit to the Salt Line. As a fan of fresh oysters, I've plotted on my visit for a while, however, the shutdown of indoor dinner put a pause on my plans to visit. I was so excited to finally get there. The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. The food was flawless. Will definitely be back!
Being able to dine outside in such cool, yet warm, location makes everything normal for a little while. Big tap of hat to staff who are working SO hard to make everyone welcome
Excellent lunch on the banks of the Anacostia. Half price oysters, delicious lobster roll packed with lobster. Very attentive server.
