Great place to go with family and friends to eat good food. We love eating at their Outside eating area.

We got the fish tacos, margaritas, and a kid's quesadilla. My daughter loved her quesadilla and wanted to return as a result The margarita was very good and fish tacos very good as well. Service was great but the kitchen was slow. Our server apologized for the long wait. Overall, very good for drinks and food at good prices.

We stopped by on a Friday night for fairly late dinner (~9pm). The first impression was not good - I walked in and waited for ~5 minutes looking for a place to put my name on the wait list. I finally realized that there were 2-3 hostesses / waitstaff chatting with each other that were taking names if you could... More

It had been a while since we were here and were a little disappointed. The food just did not have much taste. We ordered the "spicy" tuna sushi roll, which was anything but spicy. The "hot" buffalo wings were ordered with an extra side of sauce on the side....it came out naked with a side of sauce (not hot) and... More

My wife and I would visit nearly Thursday afternoon for the margaritas and soft shell crab sandwich. Even when they were super busy it didn't take long to get a seat. Parking can be a pain sometimes but it's definitely not the worst place i've been. We've been there for brunch as well and it was equally awesome.

Came here with beloved family and have been coming for years. Love the atmosphere, love the food, love the decor and fish tank. They now have a gluten free menu (we had gluten free hamburger bun and French fries fried separate from other fired items).

We eat at Salt Life 2 to 3 times a week. The menu gives us a great choice from wood grilled tacos to great fish and shrimp entrees. If we do not want seafood we will eat a steak. The appetizers are first class as well as the servers. We recommend Salt Life to all o\ur friends.

Despite an extremely loud group of ladies at the next table, the food and drinks were fabulous. The Thursday night oyster and margarita specials were fairly priced and of exceptional quality. The Hearts of Palm salad with REAL yellow fin tuna was amazing with the ginger dressing. And the Mexican sushi is to die for. I would go back over... More
