Salty's grill has been demolished and the lot has a chain link fence around it. Lost to developers I suspect.

Last Saturday January 18, 2014 Salty's burned to the ground. It was a total loss according to the local paper which also said that they had no sprinklers or alarms. No word as to whether they will rebuild.

I found this place on tripadvisor before we left home on our trip. I was looking for places that were low-priced with high reviews. This place did not disappoint. The food was excellent. I had the Mahi Mahi sandwich, blackened. My husband also loved his grilled. It is open air seating right on a dock with boats right there. Really... More

A terrific place, one of my favorites when visiting Marathon. Sadly, the restaurant burned to the ground this morning, along with a large part of the Seven Mile Marina and a couple of boats. Sure hope they are able to rebuild soon.

Salty's was a favorite water hole - Yes, someday's we thought the music was too loud too long - since we live next door but the beer was cold and the people fun. Hope you rebuild and come back strong!!! God bless.

As a tourist, I tend to listen to locals' suggestions. Good call here. The place was packed, but the service was good. Somebody already extolled the virtues of the fish tacos -- I concur. They were fabulous. Good cocktails and very good music. Nothing fancy, but well worth stopping.
