Sea Salt Minnehaha Falls

Great food, cool atmosphere, beautiful scenery. Felt like I was on vacation in my own city. Wish there were more of these.

Nice place for sea food in a great setting. Check the menu board and then get in line. We got there at around 11:15 AM and waited in line for about 15 minutes before we ordered. At ordering time we got a number to post at our selected table. Then we waited and waited, about 25 minutes before being served.... More

After exploring the sites of Minnehaha Park and the great Mississippi River, this place really delivered an amazing meal. Very hipster, the wait for my food was lengthy, but worth the wait. I enjoyed fish tacos.

There is a long line for food at this place for a reason - the food is superb and moderately priced. Go with a friend and it will be worth the wait. This is a casual outdoor cafe. You order at the counter and then servers do bring the food to your table. Beer and wine is available. Nearly everything... More

disclaimer: I do not like seafood. I got the basic fried fish, which was actually very good. Prices are decent. Went with 5 other friends, who like seafood, and they all thought it was amazing. It is fresh, with lots of choices. If you don't like seafood, there aren't many options. I think there were 3 vegetarian/non-fish options. All seating... More

This mostly seafood casual dining restaurant in Minnehaha Falls park in Minneapolis is delicious and reasonable. Specializing in fish, shrimp, calamari and scallop tacos and sandwiches they also have some good vegan items (Veggie curry, grilled veggie tacos and walnut burger) and their crab cakes are all crab with seasonings. You sometimes have to wait in a long line to... More

The prices are reasonable and the food is good, eating out in the park is a great experience. A great place to get some drinks and food and chill out while in minnehaha. The fries and the shrimps are very recommended. You can also find some musicians and artists performing. To what i know its open only during the summers.

Can't beat sitting outside near Minnihaha Falls for lunch. Having excellent seafood at good prices makes it even better. I recently had the Mahi Mahi taco and was amazed at all the fish that was stuffed in there! Others in my group had scallops, shrimp, and fried fish. Everyone enjoyed and we hope to return again when in the area.
