Steps away from the scenic overlook for Minnehaha Fall sits Sea Salt. Food was great, we got there around 5:15pm on weeknight and had no line- but by the time we left it was out the door. Music on the patio, seating was ample. A bit pricey for Minneapolis-but food was actually delicious. Playground nearby for kids.

There was an extremely long line and it was hot outside. Seating at a table required a good planning. The food was good but informal. Great, lively atmosphere.

Love all the choices with seafood. There are some vegetarian options also available. I had the grilled veggie tacos the other day, yummy. I also had the salad, fresh lovely greens and veggies. The patio dining is a great option. There is also a large covered area if the sun is too hot, or it is drizzling.

Such tasty seafood in such a fun and beautiful location. Very casual. Traveled there along the bike trail from fort Snelling. Close to Minnehaha Falls.

Good food. Long lines result in longer times to get your food. Be patient and people watch while you wait. Lovely out door eating areas.

Decided to give this place a try after seeing how highly rated it was for the area. Good spot for outdoor eating but the menu is primarily seafood based and not particularly exciting. Decent but for what it costs there are better options around.

We went to the park to specifically eat here. Small line when we arrived right around lunch. Fish tacos were great and very reasonably priced. It's great to sit on the patio, hear the waterfall and enjoy your meal. Would definitely come back again.

Sea Salt is known best for it's fresh seafood. However, the craft brews, live music and of course, location at Minnehaha Falls all add up to a stellar summer dining experience. Expect long lines when the weather is fine. Also plan to have a partner who can be a placeholder in line so that you can grab a couple beers... More

The food at Sea Salt is good albeit a little expensive. My biggest gripe is the length of the lines whenever I go.

We had not been to Sea Salt for several years, still great seafood in a relaxing summer atmosphere. We stopped early afternoon on July 4th, the line was manageable at about one beer in length. Indeed brewing had their beers trailer parked outside, fast service great selection of good cold beer. Unfortunately they were out of oysters, but we enjoyed... More
