After spending the morning exploring the ghost town of Saint Elmo, my wife and I were ready for a casual lunch when we returned to Salida. We spotted the Currents sign and decided to try it for lunch. The World Cup championship game was starting, so all tables and bar seats filled quickly. My wife ordered a hamburger with French...

Thinking the night we had dinner there, the help wasn't happy to be there. The bar tender never smiled, just shuffled around and never smiled. We also noticed him doing shots with a customer. This sign says steak and seafood. The only seafood was fish and chips-there were out of the daily special seafood and it was early at dinner... More

We both chose the capellini with mussells, shrimp & scallops in the lightest cream sauce that was just right! What a good choice. The dish (we ordered 2 half-orders) was more than ample...a whole order would have been perhaps too much. In any case, I would recommend their seaffod as the preparation was extremely well done. the brew to go... More

Their sign says steak and seafood. There was only one choice for seafood and it was fish and chips. They had already run out of the seafood special which was salmon at 5:30. There were 2 steak choices. Service was ok to poor. The waiter kept asking us what we ordered. Write it down if you have a bad memory.

A place that draws plenty of locals as well as travelers, it combines a varied menu (with plenty of half portion options which I appreciate), good selection of beers and and a comfortable, welcoming feel.

Our family are loyal Currents customers. First, we like the atmosphere in the restaurant and that is very important. Like the staff, too, and the service. The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is for downgrading quality. Great restaurants do not try to save money by using less quality ingredients. They might have to charge more for certain... More

I like a small menu and Currents has that along with top notch engredients prepared simply. Mussels were very good, steak, which my girlfriend said we needed to order because of all the good looking cattle around, was tasty and the corn was some of the best. I will say our sides were not very warm. It was was steady... More

No wait too sit down. Pleased with everything at dinner except the charge of $3.50 for each side of corn on the cob. That's a little extravagant for corn. It was good but not that good.

Our host, Ira, at the Mountain Motel recommended Currents when I told him my hubby is a 'meat and potatoes guy'. We were seated right away (in spite of us being there on a Friday night) and the food was incredible. The beer and wines were written in chalk on the walls which made it so much easier to select....

Located near the Arkansas River, which is a hot spot of for rafting and kayaking, Currents provides the best balance of great food (sandwiches, full meals, sushi, a full bar with locally crafted beer and wine, and entertainment every evening.
