“Fish, fish and booze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Salmon Dave's is a go to place for sea food or steaks. Vibrant bar scene, especially on Friday nights. Cozy comfort feeling inside. Service can be slow at times but always pleasant. Fish prepared to your liking. Specials throughout the year. Good family place to eat.

“Over!!!!rated!!!!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Only thing good about this place was our service and the atmosphere. Food absolutely sucked!!!!!! Heard good things about this place but guess the cooks took the night off while we were there!! Paid 12 bucks for three crappy scallops!!!! Ordered 6 oyster shells with nothing in the shell!! And for the main course we got the champagne surf n turf which was a rubbery lobster tail and 2 peices of meat that looked like steak that were very small and over cooked like they just came out of the microwave. It was our first time there and I really feel like I got robbed!!! Horrible food never gonna go back !!!!!

“From Favorite to Ordinary!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

From the moment we moved to the USA, Salmon Dave's has been our favorite restaurant! I had even given it a 5star review a few months ago! What changed?
First, service was more then ordinary (our waiter looked surprise when I asked for the price of the crab dinner?) and gave us dirty wine glasses! (Can the restaurant staff check glasses before handing them out - one had lipstick rims!). Then the meat (filet mignon) was overcooked, the mashed potatoes (which are usually so good) were lumpy. Overall - disappointing! The total bill was slightly under $150.00 for 2 including a wine bottle. What should have been a nice dinner turned out to feel like a fast food dinner - with an overprice tag!

“Fabulous Mother's Day Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

My family took me to Salmon Dave's for Mother's Day Dinner and what a special treat it was! The service was fanstastic even though it was a busy holiday, our server allowed us to take our time when making choices and didn't make us feel rushed. The lobster bisque really was incredibly rich and delicious as the menu described and the seasonal cheesecake was "to die for." We had the specials of the day which were beautifully presented and delicious as well. The decor was interesting and comfortable and the table setting lovely. All in all a wonderful experience and I can't wait to try the restaurant for lunch as well as a return dinner trip!

“One of the best restaurant around Cleveland!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This restaurant is by far one of my favorite around Cleveland! Seafood or steaks are always delicious; service is impeccable. Do reserve; it gets busy on weekends! We had a large business dinner and the restaurant reserved an area for our party - everyone raved about the food and service! Prices on the high end but worth it!
