The food was excellent, they prepared the entrees (salmon and prawns/shrimp) especially to order. The servers and hostesses were friendly and accommodating (Brian and Danielle). While dining you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Columbia River. It was so good, we went back again...More

While the restaurant itself was lovely and provided beautiful views of the Columbia River, the food was hideously, hideously overpriced, ridiculously so. The food was delicious but did not warrant such a high price tag. $65 for an ordinary steak? Give me a break!

Almost everytime Hubs and I use PDX, we dine at Salty’s. This time, it was especially good! They had a special: 2 pounds of Dungeness crab legs plus soup and salad for $30! Yep, 30 bucks! A steal for crab lovers. Hubs isn’t too fond...More
