“Salty Dunes Coastal Kitchen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This dine-in/take-out restaurant is next door to the Hampton Inn (nice hotel)!!! My husband and I decided to eat there our third night there and I'm glad we did!! From the lobby of the hotel we were only steps away from the restaurant and 10 mins. walk to the beach. For an appetizer you have to order the onion rings!!!! My husband swear they're the best!!!
This is just the one thing to do in New Smyrna, so many other things to do,stop by the visitor center to see. Take advantage of everything they have to offer there even the Lighthouse. We went during Reggae Festival Weekend and we enjoyed it!!!!

“Good location... aveage food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I was excited to try Salty Dunes based on the reviews here, but unfortunately we found the selections hit-or-miss.

Miss: The shrimp quesadillo and the shrimp and crab salad lacked pizzazz. Beers were barely chilled.

Hit: The mahi salad... delicious and perfectly seasoned. A joy.

Great little location for lunch or easy dinner. Hope they figure it all out.

“The Big Fish Sandwich has me hooked!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Salty Dunes Mahi sandwich whether fried, blackened or grilled is always wonderful! My favorite side is the steamed broccoli. BUT, everything I have tried at Salty's has been exceptional! My best friend loves the ribs. Burgers are great too! Simple menu, all great!

“The best darn chicken strips ever!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Conveniently located next to the Hampton Inn. Great outside sitting area under tiki umbrellas and friendly and caring staff and owners and then you get this huge serving of "the best darn chicken strips ever;" WOW!!!!!!!! The chicken strips were very lightly battered and not overly crispy, nor too greasy. The size of the chicken platter is just unbelievable; I could finish the whole platter and had to take leftovers home!!!!!!! It was the best-tasting leftovers ever!!!!!!! Great job Salty Dunes Coastal Kitchen!!!!!!!!! Hands down to an overall great experience!!!!!!!!!!
