This place was just OKAY, considering it was 90$ for a split salad and two plates (water to drink). First impressions are everything. When we arrived we asked for a table for two and the hostess said "can you come back in 10 mins, I have other tables to seat" (WHAT?!?) confused, I clarified asking if she would come get... More

We had lunch at Sally's. I came for the crab cakes and was not disappointed. A very nice lunch in a very nice setting along the shore.

We had the best time at this restaurant. The food and views were so good, and the service was attentive and friendly and professional. The lobster pot pie, bread, and chocolate ball dessert surprised and delighted us both. It wasn't just the taste but also the presentation!

Had a delightful meal overlooking the harbor. Extremely generous portions. All our meals were superb. Service was extremely good. I didn't have any luck making reservations through a Trip Advisor, which reported no available tables, but called the restaurant and had no problems.

We had a really good dinner at Sally's! For appetizers, we had crab cakes and the grilled octopus. Both were great! The sea bass was perfect and the lobster puff pastry was decadent with tons of lobster. The prices were not cheap, but given the quality were reasonable. We would definitely go back to Sally's again.

We came here on short notice after our reservation at Roys ended up being shifted to the outside patio where it was freezing. Sally's was accommodating and had great service as well as good seafood.

Dropped in for dinner on a Thursday evening. Staff was very attentive and the food was good. Outside seating is available and its a great place to people watch as the harbor walk is right next to the restaurant.

Nice surprise to find a good restaurant on the waterfront, great atmosphere at night. Light and airy with great bar area to have a drink before you eat. Great food, friendly and efficient staff. Can be a little noisy with general buzz, not a place to go for a quiet chat.

Highly recommend. From the sake to the appetizers to the meals you can't go wrong. We started with sushi, octopus and crab cake appetizers, them moved on to the sea bass, salmon, and paella. Outdoor dining was lovely with heat lamps to keep you warm on cold nights. Service was terrific.
