Fried chicken was awesome. Others had the fish special which also got rave reviews, as did the French Onion soup. Good beer, wine, and spirits selection. Great atmosphere. Tuesday nights' entertainment was a guy playing a Chapmans Stick (look it up).

We have been to Currents many times and the food is consistently amazing. The service is top notch and the drinks delicious, with a great beer menu. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant!

The food and service were good. We were disappointed that more fish items were not on the menu. We liked our wine selection and they had a nice selection of brews. The brownie with ice cream, whipped cream and caramel was fantastic and easily shared by two.

We ate at Currents on a Sunday evening in late September. The Salida historic district was only moderately crowded on this evening, being a Sunday and a bit late in the season, but Currents had a lively looking crowd along with drink specials and food specials. One of the bartenders was standing near the door and his friendly demeanor prompted... More

This will be a neutral review. We didn't take ill from the food, but it definitely wasn't one we'll talk about for months to come. Probably because the memories of our mind blowing dining at The Rabbit Hole and Edelweiss in Colorado Springs the day before were still fresh (see separate reviews for each). In summary: We were hungry. We... More

My husband and I ate here while on a visit in Salida last week. The waitress was friendly enough (not overly) and my husband loved his meal - fried chicken on mash potatoes with gravy. He said the gravy was amazing. My salmon salad was very strong for salmon and I did not enjoy it at all. What bothered me... More

We picked this restaurant due to it's rating unfortunately it didn't live up to it's reviews. Service was inadequate from the moment we walked in. We had a group of five and they wanted to put us in a booth in back. I asked for a table outside and was told they couldn't accommodate us so we pulled two tables... More

A lovely place that's clearly popular. Great service and good was terrific. My maguro poke came quickly and the waiter was solicitous throughout.

Good vibe. Nice to sit outside on the sidewalk. Good beer/wine and Colorado liquor selection. Fried chicken is really good but the gravy is awesome! Could drink shots of that gravy! Staff always friendly and helpful.

Thank Bruce S
