Great place for a large group - and we had a party of 13 and a nice table outside with a view of the river and bridge. Nice menu selection that offered something for everyone. The kids loved the milkshakes!
I researched the menu in advance and upon arrival
Was notified that what I wanted to order was not available in addition to 3 other
Main courses that I would’ve chose. I am usually very satisfied with the food and service when dining at Salt Line but I was less than pleased with the managers response.
We enjoyed the service and the food was good, especially the oysters. Fairly noisy outside dining.
Excellent (fast, friendly, professional) and excellent food and drinks. My fiancé and I were gifted our meal by friends, but look forward to coming back with friends and family!
Lovely setting, great drinks, good food, attentive but not hovering service.
Thanks for review Maureen! So glad you enjoyed and hope you can join us again soon!
Loved sitting outside at this place, enjoying a Gin-Gin cocktail and the water view. Nashville Hot Soft Shell open-faced sandwich was spicy/sweet delicious. Attentive service. All around, just a fun place to relax.
Usually don’t write up the experience but really want to mention. As a party of two, we were outside and the table available did not have a great view. We asked about sitting at a larger table. Having been in the service industry I understood being a high volume time they needed to save the larger table for a larger group. The manager happily offered and moved the smaller table to the better view. It was a truly lovely way to help us. I so appreciated the effort. We had lots of oysters and shrimp and it was delicious. The fresh oysters came SUPER quickly!
That's great to read and appreciate you taking the time to submit a review. So glad you and your guest had a nice time and hope you can join us again soon.
The Salt Line is always a good time! How can you go wrong slurping oysters and beer by the water? The quality of the seafood here is excellent and they purchase from sustainable sources. The menu really shows off the seafood with your standards - seafood towers and lobster roles plus more creative crudo's and interesting entrees. The service is friendly and professional in a laid back atmosphere. Great beer and cocktail choices! Tip: if you want to go on nights when there's a baseball game, just reserve your table for after the game starts. We're big Nats fans, but had family in town who live in a rural place with not much seafood. So eating with family took precedent. There are 162 baseball games.
Birthday dinner celebration before the Nats game. As usual, the food was great! Fresh oysters, crudo, and love the rockfish appetizer.
The staff is welcoming and helpful. The cocktails are wonderful, the food is inventive and delicious.
We came after a Nationals game and it was great! Great atmosphere, drinks and food. We got the waterman’s platter and clam chowder. The clam chowder was so tasty! The Rosé spritz drink was also delicious. Plus you can overlook the water which is a nice touch and it’s in a very nice area.
Accommodated our late arrival due to unexpected traffic, excellent food, top notch service. Overall, a very good dining experience.
We took our friend for a surprise birthday dinner and it was awesome. This place never fails.
Our server was not very attentive at all. We had to seek people clearing tables for assistance several times. The environment is nice but the service left a lot to be desired.
Nice location near sporting venue.
Food was well prepared and served in a timely manner.
Can be very busy before and after baseball games.
The Salt Line is our "go to" restaurant before attending a NATS game! Service is always great and the food/beverage options are consistantly delicious! The entire staff is always friendly and attentive. We also enjoy going in the "off baseball season"...for same reasons!
Most competent service I’ve had since starting to go out again after COVID. Good food, tasty cocktails, and reasonable prices given the cuisine and location.
Great fish sandwich and lobster roll. Good service.
Nice outdoor setting on the river. Food was good but not exceptional.
Everything was great, Jason our server was extremely attentive, gracious and made my husband enjoy his birthday celebration with a scoop of ice cream a mountain of whipped cream and sprinkles. This was our 1st time dining at The Salt Line and totally enjoyed the experience. Will definitely return!
So nice and rewarding to read- Thank you! Thanks for choosing The Salt Line for your celebration and we do hope to see you again soon!
Will bring you right back to New England for an authentic seaside clamhouse. Everything was perfectly prepared, fresh and tasty! Good cocktail menu as well in perfect riverside setting. Fun place for a party or eating outside as well.
This restaurant was such a stunning gem to find at the Navy Yard. We will definitely return.
This place is nice and sweet. Located at a beautiful spot at Navy Yard. The food was great and the drinks were good. This is definitely a great summer spot!
We sat at 8pm and I felt a little rushed through the meal. But overall, loved my experience and will definitely return!
Food Tasty and fresh!
Service, food, and atmosphere were all amazing! I will definitely be returning!
Great place to enjoy oysters. Sandwiches are delicious and service is very professional.
The setting is beautiful on the river, the seafood is fresh, and the service was excellent today!
We loved our evening at The Salt Line. Oysters, wine and entrees were deliciously prepared and expertly served. We will come again!
Our server, “G” was excellent. He provided great service and checked on us often. The table was split with the food. Two of us had a great dish and the other two felt the dish was lacking.
Our server Sheryl was outstanding
Oysters were great. Rockfish Entrée didn’t have much flavor.
Seated quickly. Server was attentive without being overly so. Service was fast. Food was delicious. Will return.
The waiter was very nice… I love a nice booth area! The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. I am new to enjoying oysters so his opinions helped! My friends platter was warm tasty and fresh!!! I’ll definitely be back! I want to try a tower with some friends next time.
Our waiter, John, was knowledgeable and pleasant we thought he did a great job letting us know about certain dishes. The clam chowder was nice and light - we both thought it was superb. Lobster roll (with butter - the only way to appreciate it…) was excellent. Had the Rockfish…I’d give it a 6-7 out of 10…good but not outstanding. We ate inside…outside has a bit more ambiance - right on water - but can be warm and a little more noisy. This place is a must try!
For a special occasion seafood feast, we highly recommend The Kraken!
Oysters we very delayed in getting to the table....they came as did all entrees at the same time...
Setting is awesome. Service was great.
Food and drinks were delicious.
Went there to celebrate high school graduation! The set up is amazing and the food never disappoints. Loved it!
