“Good Seafood”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Salty's is a very good restaurant--most of the time. They have a nice salad bar with a great hot bacon dressing. The sides are usually good but seldom great. What they do well is seafood. We have had many excellent cold water lobster tails there and most of their seafood is equally good so the seafood is highly recommended. Their steaks, not so much. I have yet to have a good steak at Salty's and hence have given up trying. Why they excel at seafood and then offer inferior/mediocre beef is mystery. Also overrated are their bacon wrapped shrimp which are usually overcooked. I'd like to give them a 3.5 rating but that is not an option.

“Inconsistent, but usually good”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We come here for lunches, dinners with friends and family, take-outs for on the boat or the beach, or just stop in for a few drinks. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. The service can be anywhere from poor to good, the food can be average to good, and the people are generally friendly.

“High price for mediocre food.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

High price for mediocre food. Had I known our dining experience would have been displeasing we would have sought another location to eat. Our wait staff weren't doing sufficient job & were social bunnies. We definitely won't be returning to this restaurant.

“Seafood Lover's Listen Up”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Salty's has the greatest variety of seafood of any restaurant in the area. They also have steaks and soups and sandwiches and a wonderful salad bar. There is a board with at least four or five specials listed every night. They have double bubble five nights a week.

“Real good seafood variety”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We go to Salty's every year on our annual trip to Airventure. We are never disappointed. We always have to wait but expect it.
I had a Salty's special with shrimp and cheese. It was real good. Everyone enjoyed all the food. The salad bar is always real good and tasty- I highly recommend it.
Others had clam chowder . Everyone in our group of 7 enjoyed the meal
