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

If you like different and unique, this is your place. Minnehaha Falls provides a great backdrop and the food is amazing. Umma soft shell crab aficionado and Sea Salt was one of the best I've ever had including the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. A little more in the expensive side for outside eating, but well worth it!!! Love this... More

All fresh seafood in a wonderfully calm setting; service super; others have made the case for this eatery and place. Get the fish sandwich...it ain't a MCD's fishwich by any stretch.....fish portion is 10" long....dwarfs the bun.....ridiculous and wonderful

This place is my favorite restaurant in Minnesota. Some people complain about the line, but it's worth it. I love Sea Salt and go there every time I'm home in the Twin Cities. I also make a point of bringing every visitor there and they are always pleasantly surprised. 0) Order a nice glass of white wine 1) Start with... More
