This was our first visit to the Silver Salmon and we were very pleased with everything. Good food, very good service, and a delightful interesting atmosphere to dine in. We went after the rush at lunchtime and both of us had excellent food.
My wife had a salad and halibut. Both were attractive to the eye and the fish was cooked perfectly--moist and flaky. Cheese was part of this dish and added a welcome layer of flavor. i tried their award winning clam chowder and asked for a combination of the halibut and salmon fingers and chips (both are listed, but not in combination). The waiter said they often do that when requested and it was no problem. Wow. This was a real winner! Nicely breaded, crispy on the outside, hot and flaky on the inside. Excellent thickly sliced chips that stayed hot.
Silver Salmon runs ads in the free newspaper that is available for tourists offering 15% off on your meal. We also found their business card at an antique shop nearby that offered 15% off. So, save yourself some money on the bill and apply it to the tip for your server. Win/win!
They understand gluten free and took special care with my wife's food. Absolutely no issues with food or attitude. Our server was terrific!
While waiting for our food to arrive, we strolled around the interior of the restaurant, enjoying the murals and all the fishing based touches. The cherry wood bar in the adjoining pub was especially interesting to see.
Silver Salmon will see our repeat business next time we come to Astoria. Great food at very reasonable prices (even before the 15% discount). This place is a gem!
