Al fresco seating in a beautiful park

Be prepared for very long lines. Many choices on the menu. We enjoyed crab cakes and red beans and rice. The ice cream vendor on the side of the building makes great root beer floats. Outdoor patio has plenty of shade.

The way the service is provided (single long line that can go on for more than an hour) is a real barrier to the experience. The way beer is involved in that experience leaves something to be desired too-I've seen more than one person get beer poured down their backs by an inebraited customer wainting in line near them. Seems... More

I don't believe in many things - earth is flat, a to z word games (questionable), doctor's fees, and that I waited all this time to try Sea Salt Eatery! I do believe in feng shui and all my mom's lies to get me to do something when I was little however (scratch your private, rub your eyes, go blind... More

Our visit was on a poor weather weekday which removed the long line up issue however I could tell this was a busy place. A nice selection of beer on tap and a fantastic seafood menu was available. The service was good, the food was excellent. I would suggest it is not a kid friendly restaurant however.

The fried fish sandwich, PO' Boys, and fish tacos are all good. Nice beer and wine too. The line to order can be long, but hey you got the Falls.

Love me some Sea Salt! This restaurant is located in Minnehaha Park. It's a great place to make an afternoon or evening excursion to. Whether you bike there, walk there (extensive trails around here for both) or drive to come and see the Falls, add this stop to your day. The food is seafood focused with lots of great selections....

The best fried clams in town! In general the food is good. A little pricey, but not too bad. And, they have Sebastian Joe's ice cream, which is wonderful!

This is something I LOVE to do with friends/family that come to town. The food is awesome - I love all the various seafood and especially, the fish tacos. The beer selection is great - they have lots of local varieties and some interesting ones from the rest of the country too. And the setting is beautiful - right next... More

Walking back towards the parking lot from visiting Minnehaha Park, we arrived back out front the Sea Salt Eatery where there was a man singing and playing an acoustic guitar outside as part of the venue's scheduled entertainment. We went inside to look at the menu, but the line was too long. We also had wanted to eat on the... More
