Terrific eatery in a gorgeous outside setting. Don't let the long lines deter you. It's worth the wait, and they move you along. Delicious seafood, great craft beer and wine. Just wish there more tables outside, although you can set up a picnic anywhere in the park...though I am not sure you can take alcohol off the grounds. Best thing... More

Sea Salt is a seasonal restaurant, usually open mid-April through mid-October. I have stood in line for over 30 minutes to place an order here. It is worth every minute of the wait. My son likes the shrimp po' boy. I love the clam basket with a side of red beans and rice. A cold beer finishes off the meal.

Sea Salt is located feet from the overlook to Minnehaha waterfall. They have good variety of seafood and beers, with a lot of outdoor seating. Their fish tacos are especially tasty! Some of the better seafood I've had in Minnesota. Definitely worth trying on a nice day. The line can get pretty long, extending the length of the building, but... More

We had to wait in line, but it was worth every bite! Crab cakes- awesome! Corn & crab chowder- perfect! Fried fish tacos- great. Today was the last day they were open for the season, so glad we made the trip!! Servers were friendly and very helpful! Yummy! Oh... and the beer & cider was pretty amazing, too!!

It seemed busy when we were there but, the time it took for our food to arrive was reasonable. I had the Po Boy Fish on a bun. There was so much fish I couldn't hardly see the bun. There also was a huge selection of hot sauces. Over all a good experience.

Located in the heart of Minnehaha Park just south east of downtown Minneapolis this seafood establishment has consistently delivered fresh and flavorful seafood items since its opening. Tucked in the Pavilion by Minnehaha Falls this restaurant continues to offer up very tasty items including oysters on the half shell, clams, po boy sandwiches, shrimp, fish, and the like. I have...

Arrived at the park with the purpose of meeting friends and eating here but parking was atrocious. Debated leaving but heard such good things we decided to stay. The line is ridiculous and the place would be better with wait staff instead. We grabbed beers and chatted while in line instead of viewing the park. We ordered and found a... More
