The line wait to order was about half an hour or so, but the food did not arrive for almost an hour after we ordered. (We got in line about 1:00 on a Wednesday afternoon.) Most of the items were average at best, although the chips that came with the watermelon gazpacho were good. Perhaps they should have some ready... More

While I think the setting was perfect with the Falls behind us, the great weather, entertainment providied, I'm not sure I'd return to eat. We waited in line for an hour and then another 20 minutes to get our food. One person taking orders, one person taking money, lots of cooks, lots of runner, one person serving ice cream cones....

I'm sure your food is delicious, but I'm not going to wait for 45 minutes in line to order it. Your total lack of any kind of customer service says volumes about you. I was there yesterday afternoon and there was 1 person taking orders and then she would slowly write it down. Prettty pathetic!

We visited Minnehaha Falls and were so surprised to find Sea Salt, an outdoor eatery. It couldn't have been a more perfect evening with fresh seafood. YUM!

Headed down here during my culinary travels through Minneapolis, a local favourite for seafood, I had the fish tacos which tasted divine. My friend had some calamari and the bowl was huge, great value for money, awesome range of craft beers available and beautiful outdoor seating in the park.

We didn't realize that it would be so busy on a Friday afternoon, but are glad we waited in line. My husband and I shared the scallop tacos, shrimp po'boy and the clam fries. The tacos were very fresh and flavorful and I will definitely order them again. Generally, I am not a fried food person, but would make an... More

i'd highly recommend the calamari tacos. you get a ton of fresh, perfectly flash fried calamari in 2 tacos with a great salsa (corn style). Can't say enough about how delicious these are

This place is unbelievable! Unbelievably excellent! Be prepared to wait in line to order. We waited about 25 minutes and the line never went down! The food came fast and was excellent. Fish basket was made to perfection. Calamari "appetizer" was a meal in itself. We go at least 2+ times each year during their season and the Sea Salt... More

This place is busy, but the line moves fairly fast. You can also send someone to get beer from the separate drinks counter and enjoy a local brew while you wait. Veggie tacos are great, and there are a few other vegetarian choices. Once you place your order, grab a patio seat and they will bring your food to you.... More

I went on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The line was long so it took a while to order. The wait for my food was not bad. I had a nice cold beer to hold me over. This is a great place, outdoor seating near Minnehaha Falls, fun people watching. I ordered the fried crawfish Poboy. It is what it is....fried.... More
