It is always an extraordinary time at Salty's! It is a favorite of my family and me. The food is spectacular, the wine recommended was delicious, and the staff is always amazing. The view is devastatingly beautiful in the summertime.

About the restaurant
King Tide Fish & Shell, led by Executive Chef Alexander Diestra, is a riverfront seafood restaurant and bar inspired by the laid-back fishing lodges of family vacations gone by. With sparkling waterfront views of the Willamette, a welcoming energy and a menu that ranges from no-fuss to fancy, here at King Tide we serve fresh, inventive seafood dishes with local ingredients that are uniquely Portland.

There aren't many places that command the vantage point we enjoy here at King Tide, so we like to make sure it lives up to Portland. We do that with a blend of the traditional and the non, the comfortable and the slightly twisted, the satisfying food and the swinging drink.

As we like to say, King Tide is where food & drink & people always complement each other, and everything goes with the view.

They were very busy and understaffed. We had to ask for a waiter several times. They were very nice at all times, even though they were understaffed.
