“Terrible Bathrooms!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Canada Day lunch at Salty's was beyond disappointing! It started with the bathrooms where the toilet didn't flush. Then there was no paper for wiping hands. Never mind the confusion in determining which bathroom is the ladies and which is the men's! What ridiculou signage they have! Turns out the men's was flooded as well. Makes you wonder what the kitchen cleanliness is like when you see the bathrooms! I couldn't order food after the bathroom experience so just ended up having a drink! We watched a patron leave the restaurant with a drink in his hand and hop into a truck, all the while the 3 young hostess gals stood there and giggled! Hopefully there were no liquor inspectors around to view that clear violation. What a gong show that place is!

“Another great experience at Saltys!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Every year, a group of us go to Saltys at the end of a week-long stay in Penticton. It's always great, and this year was no exception. The staff always try to accommodate and special requests, and they outdid themselves with the salad with blueberries! Delicious!
We had a scrumptious bottle of Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc to top it all off.
The service was perfect for our needs, and everyone (large group) got fed at once.

“Don't order the steak.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have been to Salty's many times over the years with small groups and larger groups at different times of the year. Last night I was there with a large group and was very disappointed. We had reservations so it should not have been a surprise to the staff and management. The service was very slow. We waited a very long time to order drinks and a longer time yet to receive them. The food was delivered around the table inconsistently with some people not receiving food until others were done.

But the worst part was the steak. No one that ordered the steak was satisfied. Mine was so tough I stopped eating it after two bites. No one's was cooked as it was ordered. in fact a few of the steaks looked as if they had not been flipped in the cooking process: Top half rare, bottom half well-done.

The people who did not order steak seemed pleased with their food.

I hope that Salty's can get their act together as the restaurant is in a beautiful location on the beach.

“Food is OK, Service Could be Better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I find that over the years, the prices have gone up, but the quality, flavour and service levels have gone down. It's not as awesome as it used to be.
