Best steak in town!

Great food all around and the staff makes it a great experience every time. If you ever had a problem with anything there is always an owner/operator nearby to make your dining experience a real pleasure.

If you find yourself in Salida, CO, do yourself a favor by eating at Currents--steakhouse and seafood and the fullest glasses of wine I have ever had outside a friend's house! Their portions of premium wine were excellent. Our fish was amazing-so tender and prepared ust right. I felt a little sad when the meal was over. The staff and... More

Went to dinner with my family on New Years Day. Food was terrific. My 11 year old says that Currents has the best burger he's ever had. The food is terrific but what really stands out is the service. Whether it's the bartender, server, cooks in the open kitchen or the owners who are always around - these are the... More

We've been to Currents for lunch, but this was our first time for dinner, and it was even better than remembered. The beer selection was great, and the selection of Colorado distilled spirits was very interesting. The rum was strong and tasty making a Cuba Libre seem like something new. The fish is always wonderfully prepared whether in tacos, fish... More

Kids and Grandkids and friends visiting our little town. Tonight's menu was terrific, service was great and Brad, Chris, Diamond and the rest of the gang at Currents were gracious, friendly (as always) and served another round of fantastic meals. 12-year-old grandson said, "this burger ("growth the flow") is cooked exactly right" and we all agreed. Make this a must... More

We drove from Colorado Springs to see the "old" stomping grounds. We had googled various eateries and chose Currents. We were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. One of us ordered the ham/cheese wrap with fries. The fries were outstanding! The wrap was delicious with pesto spread on the tortilla. The other folks had salads: salmon and... More

Walked in off the street from a recommendation - was a bit confusing to find but it's right down next to the expensive hotel in Salida. The atmosphere was comforting, the service was great. I had the french onion soup which was delish. I would have had the bloody mary had I read some reviews before going in - darn!... More

A girlfriend and I went to Salida to do some shopping and were hungry when we arrived. We chose Currents for it's location and reviews. We arrived right after opening at 11:00. We were greeted promptly and chose to sit at the bar. We were offered several choices of specials as well as the full menu. The bar was very... More

This is a cute little hometown restaurant, the atmosphere is very pleasant and the food is grand! Everything on the menu is good, but our favorites are Bangers and Mash and Stroganoff. The Mussels for an appetizer are perfect every time. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Salida.
