Always wonderful with great covered outdoor seating for a cold rainy day. Heaters are a wonderful touch.
Seafood Tower was delicious! Amy was outstanding in taking care of us. We truly enjoyed everything. Thank you!
Excellent cocktails and food. The poached halibut was outstanding.
Best burger in DC!
It was our wedding anniversary and I requested a nice table with a view of the river. They only have outside tables but with j n I’ve weather it was good to sit outside. Know it was our anniversary they still put us opposite a large and loud group celebrating a 30th birthday. So much for have some intimacy. For drinks my wife ordered a habanero margarita. They instead used jalapeños and it was very weak I ordered a martini which they served in a cocktail glass. We orders oysters since they promoted that in their marketing and yet had a very limited selection and we tried them all. None were that good. My wife ordered the beef tips for her entree and we sent it back. It wasn’t steak tips as we thought. It was pot roast which was way over cooked and dry. I ordered the crispy rock fish. The fish was “ok” but only about two inches long. For our anniversary they gave us two Whoopi pies. I think they had Ben frozen because they stil very hard and the piece I tried was also very dry. Best I can say is it’s a pub at fine dining prices.
Food was subpar for the pricing. Would not go back for a second time. I would rather settle for Red Lobster.
Superb meal with brilliant service. Busy but the servers worked hard. The heaters mean eating outdoors in the evenings is absolutely fine.
Great outside dining venue with lights, heaters, even fire places. You can bring your dog (I didn’t realise but will next time). Good food and service. Took off a star as many tables have stools not chairs (we asked to be moved and were accommodated) and originally the waiter forgot the rolls we ordered. Will definitely go there again, nice setting, vibe and atmosphere.
We ate outside where the tables are well spaced and they are doing a good job of keeping people safe. They also have added heaters. The drink and food was very tasty and the service was great. Definitely plan on going back.
Food was phenomenal, highly recommend.
We had a great dinner at The Salt Line! We went for a special occasion and their attention to detail was amazing - they went out of their way to acknowledge our special occasion and even saved us a table with a beautiful view of the harbor! The food and service was great and everything was sanitized and clean complying with COVID safety protocols. Overall great experience!
I went to Salt Line in October during the pandemic but at the point when we were adapting to a new normal. It was a rainy day and I was concerned about sitting inside the restaurant but a friend was visiting from out of town and the unexpected rain and cold weather forced us to chose an inside table. I found the staff at the restaurant to be very conscientious as it relates to the cleanliness, table spacing, masks and enforcement of the restaurant policies designed to keep everyone safe. Our waiter was fantastic, the service was prompt, the waiter was well informed about the food and wine, he appeared at the right times and also disappeared for the right amount of time. The food was outstanding, I had the halibut and my friend had the rockfish and we both thoroughly enjoyed our dishes, we started with Oysters, a great selection, two of each, recommended by the waiter, the wine he recommended was great as well. It was overall a wonderful evening out when we really are limited in terms of going out during the pandemic and also concerned about being healthy. I highly recommend the Salt Line.
Our waiter was EXCELLENT! Knew the bev menu extremely well - we were very impressed! Kudos to him!
Delicious food, wonderful service and scenic outdoor venue to make for a memorable and safe birthday gathering! Will definitely be back!
I enjoyed every part of my experience from service to food and drink. Best view of Navy Yard too
What a great atmosphere, especially in this season of covid. The outdoor seating area was full of energy, but tables were spaced apart and host, greeters and servers were careful. Lobster roll was pricey but definitely well worth the splurge.
Outstanding can’t wait to go back
Very good option. Both inside and outside dining available. Fodd and service wre very good.
The Salt Line never fails to disappoint!
Dining outdoors at The Salt Line at 5pm on a Wednesday evening felt safe, yet relaxed. Their friendly and knowledgeable staff wore masks and followed safe COVID protocols. The oysters, beer, and cocktails were delicious!
Great food and service....outdoor seating available.
Great ambience! They took social distancing very seriously, which was great. The oysters were delicious, as were the fries.
It was great. Thank you!
Great outside dining. Food and service are always the best
Great outdoor dining atmosphere, but was disappointed by the lobster rolls and the drinks. There wasn’t much meat in either of our lobsters rolls and the drinks were sub par. Expensive meal for what we got.
Oysters here are SO fresh, great lobster roll too.
Great bartender/server knew exactly how to explain the menu in detail and offer suggestions
Anyone who doesn't appreciate the level of safety and service they are offering during these crazy times, while serving great food in a wonderful outdoor environment, should just stay home. Truly a great restaurant.
Great experience eating outside on the covered patio; restaurant was very organized about reservations and seating.
This is my 6th trip to Salt Line. It is always excellent.
Great ambience, service and food. We really enjoyed a night out
Clam chowder was not good
Recommend to anyone who has trepidations about eating out during COVID. They do a terrific job of making you feel comfortable and safe. Food is exceptional as is service. A great establishment to support so we can be sure it is here after COVID.
Love this spot on the water. The food never disappoints and I always have a tough time deciding which item on the menu to get. Our table devoured the scallops, beef tips and Halibut. The wine selection is fantastic and the cocktails are all wonderful. The patio ambiance was cozy with tons of fresh air thanks to the water front view. There are even heat lamps at night to ensure you stay warm. I can’t recommend this place enough and brought some DC newbies to this spot who already plan on making it a regular restaurant.
We really enjoyed our experience yet again. The cocktails were great and the stuffed clams were some of the best we've ever had (and we are from New England).
Loved celebrating my birthday at Salt line! And thanks to the host, I had an extra special seat to celebrate!!!
Always amazing and patio fantastic
Great food. It was a little chilly but they had propane heaters and blankets to give out. Very cute ambiance.
Thanks for your visit and review- so glad you enjoyed your Salt Line experience and we were able to keep you cozy and warm. Hope you can join us again soon!
