This place is great! The food is innovative and fresh and the staff are super friendly when they are not being too cool for school hipsters. Everything was delicious that we tried: fish tacos, calamari, etc. The one thing that sucks and why it isn't 5 stars for me was because of the wait. Oh man, if you can survive... More

Admittedly, I avoid this place like the plague on nice weekends and opt for a long lunch or a day with light drizzle. The portions are huge and always, take the staff recommendations when you are unsure! My faves include: bay scallop tacos, seafood soup, and the amazing thai curry soup. (In fact, I usually buy an extra to take... More

My husband, two sons (14 and 2) and I visited the Sea Salt Eatery on a summer afternoon after we hiked the park area around the restaurant. We had dinner plans else where, but stopped for their gelato. The gelato was amazing, they offered many different options and it looked like they changed their selection often. Some flavors were gone... More

The wait was super long, and not enough staff to take orders. The food was great tho, had the fish tacos. Little overpriced. They need another food place there for competition. Dirty counters, loud music I didn't mind, but not much staff working outside or to clean.

The location is fabulous - in Minnehaha Park right near Minnehaha Falls. The fried fish poh boy sandwich had some of the best fried fish I've ever had, plus lots of tarter sauce and Sriracha sauce. Fabulous. The rest of what we got was okay to not so good: the fish soup - bland and without much fish; clam fries... More

This place feels like a great 'cantina' where you buy your food to go or sit on the benches around the park. Ok, so they are a bit disorganised and it takes a while when the lines are long to order. Part of this might be because the staff seem to have a good vibe and enjoy interacting with all... More

We decided to check this place out after hearing about it for several years. It is a seasonal restaurant, open spring, summer and fall. It is located in Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis and very easy to find. The food is not only good but fresh...and that is not easy to find in the upper Midwest. They say the seafood is... More
