Sarah is a terrific bartender! Not only does she make great drinks but her personality and welcoming manners make you feel like a regular on your first visit. I'm in the wines and spirits business, and I very much appreciate the work Holly has done here with the wine list. Ask her for a recommendation with your meal, and TRUST... More

The food here is fantastic, and the mixed drinks are amazing! I have never had a mojito I liked and I tried my mom's coconut mojito (I didn't order it because I thought I hate them), and it was absolutely delicious! All of the ingredients in the food and drinks taste very fresh. Service was great, the people who work... More

Between the coast road and Higg's Beach where volleyball players float midair, is a welcoming restaurant, wide like grandma's arms, named Salute. The roof is a broad blue canopy and does not impede the remarkable view.

The Host is hilarious and most accommodating. The food is delicious and the service a 10. I tried other restaurants and wish I went to Salute every time. To top it off you overlook the beautiful beach and sunrise.

One of the most exceptional spinach salads with fish I have ever eaten; found at a little beach restaurant! OMG, Brian, the lunch host, is an absolute hoot and a doll!

We had lunch here and the food was ok. I really wanted a burger as I was eating seafood all week and the burger was not great. My wife had seafood and she liked it But hey also did not have fries so another Big problem for me. The location is great, right on the beach.

We went here for dinner because it was near our hotel. Certainly nothing wrong with the food but payed the same price at other restaurants that we of higher quality. Yet it was a good place for food and drinks. If you're in the area try it for yourself. A person who I assume is the owner is on the... More
