Consequently, we are very disheartened to hear what happened to you on such a special occasion. We appreciate you taking the time to post a review on tripadvisor. Please get back to us with more details as we sincerely wish to make this right. What was the exact date and time of your visit to Salty's. Can you give us the name or description of the bartender?

“Food is great!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The wait is abysmal. We love the food, but not enough to wait an hour to be seated, and then the wait to receive your menu, plus the wait time to be served while your food is prepared. Please note we still give this place a top notch rating... but plan on waiting for your dish of wonderfulness.

Hello Patti S: thank you for taking the time to leave a review for Salty's Seafood & Spirits. We are sorry that you had to wait when you have dined at our restaurant, but we are pleased that you feel it is worth the wait. I don't know if you are aware, but in the Summer/Early Fall Months you can enjoy a beverage on our deck while you wait for a table. Hope to be able to serve you again soon.

“Tasty”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We were just in for a quick afternoon bite so we shared Crab and Shrimp Nachos and Bacon Wrapped Cajun Shrimp appetizers. Really tasty. The seem to have a vast dessert selection. We chose a chocolate peanut butter torte of some sort. Definitely sweet and yummy. Would love to see what their other offerings are like if we are back in town!

“A taste of Key West”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Love this place! After moving here from Florida I was disappointed to find there aren't many places in this area that serve seafood like back home. I found Salty's one day by accident and couldn't be happier! The food is wonderful, great atmosphere and we even have a favorite waitress Lorelei that absolutely rocks!!!!!!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Salty's. We love Key West and great seafood too and have strived to present Salty's as a little slice of Key West in the decor and the cuisine.
We think Lorelei rocks too!! Hope to serve you and friends again soon.

“Seafood near the lake”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Have been here several times. Food is expensive, and while some meals can be great, consistency is lacking. They do have a nice salad bar for the size of the place, including some pasta salads. Mainly a local hangout for middle-aged to senior.
