We have eaten here several times. We've never been disappointed. They have an outdoor dining area and on a warm summer afternoon, you can't do much better. Everything we've tried is good so I don't think you can go wrong.

Several years ago we tried Currents and were disappointed in the food and service. We hadn't been back until this year. We dined here in May (sat at the bar) and again on our recent August trip (front patio). On both occasions the staff was friendly and knowledgeable of the food they served. The menu has just the right mix... More

Looking for somewhere new to eat and stumbled into Currents. Service was great. Extended beer menu. Food was very good. Husband and son were so impressed with green chili that they went back the next day!

Near the Arkansas River on the main street in Salina this popular bar has great outdoor seating in good pub food for lunch. The fried calamari with sweet sour sauce were perfectly prepared as was the French dip sandwich. The cease salad was average and could have used some anchovies. Good beer and great service.

Currents in Salida is full of locals whose personality shines enlivens this cool eatery. With a decent happy hour from 3-5 pm and an assortments of beers and wines at decent prices. Pictured is the salmon wrap with a smokey taste and crack fries which were crunchy but not oily. Strongly recommend as a good chill place when either staying... More

There are MANY restaurants to choose from in Salida and I'm glad we chose this one. Fun assortment of local and standard beers to start off. Waitress was FANTASTIC in bringing samples of beer to taste. Small but varied menu. I had the beef stroganoff, which was the best meal I had on vacation. Hubby had a delicious rib eye... More

One night we went over to have dinner with some 15 other BMW riders, lead by one of the locals. Service is very friendly, but all a bit pricey for the noisy environment. When getting older the gearing goes. Younger people will like this 'bar' better I presume. Not bad, but not great either.
