“Good local food”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We are long time locals that seem to always eat at the same places, because we know the food is consistently good. We had always skipped the silver salmon grille, as we did not want to try someplace new and be disappointed. This was a mistake.

This restaurant is delightful. A nice menu with a good selection of fish, steak and pasta. Nice ambiance, and a good bar, and prices were average for this kind of meal.

Started with shrimp cocktail and drinks, probably one of the best shrimp cocktails I have had in recent memory.

I had the blackened ribeye, cooked to perfection, and the vegetables and baked potato were good. The wife had tortellini Alfredo with salmon, also very good.

We were too full for dessert, so brought home a tart that looks wonderful.

The only down side for both of us was the Cesar salad with dinner. It was more like a pile of Parmesan cheese with a little bit of romaine under it. For the premium price you pay to upgrade from a standard dinner salad, it was a letdown.

“good food”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We are locals & have eaten both lunch & dinners here. Sometimes not the best service at lunch time but that can be the same anywhere. We have had good food here at an ok price. Had a slight problem with one order but it was taken care of immediately. It is an older restaurant building so it is not fancy & they advertise casual fancy dining. Perfect for those who want to sight see and drop in. We usually don't order seafood when we dine out but we did here and it was good. Ask questions for example: " Is the fish fresh or fresh frozen?". Seafood has seasons when it can be harvested, people!!

“Recommendation Was a Good One”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We were driving thru Astoria and had gone up to see the Astoria Column. The parking attendant who gave us our pass showed us that on the back there was a 15% discount at this restaurant. She highly recommended it stating that the food was very good.

We went and tried it. It is in the downtown area at 1105 Commercial St. She was right. I had halibut and chips which were excellent. My wife had chowder and salad which were excellent, too. A variety of food is available. Price was a little more than we are used to paying for dinner, but with the 15% discount, so what. Glad we went and would go again.

“Great Food/ambiance”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We visited this restaurant quite by accident, and were immediately glad we did! We were greeted by very pleasant staff and seated immediately...this was Memorial Day and we expected to have to wait.
The menu and prices were very fair...the homemade mushroom soup was fabulous as was the San Francisco Melt...just excellent. (grin, and no, we were not starving so that was not a factor in our calling this meal excellent). It simply was very very good.

The ambiance of the place was quite nice and very comfortable...had a separate lounge area with a historic back-bar that had been shipped around the Horn...

The best part about the place was the sincerely genuine and delightful demeanor and personalities of the entire staff. To a person, from the hostess to the servers (our primary server was Shaun, but every other server who topped off our beverages was great too) the staff was great, and the cook that day was gifted.

Next time we are in Astoria, we will make a bee-line for the Silver Salmon!

“salmon dinner”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I had the blackened Salmon dinner. My wife had the low carb Salmon with Parmesan and Broccoli. Both dinners were excellent. The salmon was moist and fresh feeling and the sauces were very tasty. My dinner was served with choice of potatoes and a very large fresh salad dinner salad. The food was plenty with out being too much. Service was efficient and friendly.
