Enjoy the local spirit of F Street in Salida. Quick service, good food and cheer. Not a large menu, but something for everyone. Great fish tacos and my husband loves the mussel dish. Outside dining in the warmer weather.

This place sits right on the river so we had a great view and the trees were in full color. We just stopped here for a quick lunch and really enjoyed it. We each had cream of mushroom chowder and we shared a lobster queso dip. Both were outstanding and very reasonably priced. Johnna was our waitress and she was... More

We live in Salida and enjoy Currents. They have delicious specials, we especially enjoy the Fish Tacos, that always delight. They have a comfortable outdoor seating area if weather permits and if you enjoy being in the center of the action. They have an animated happy hour.

Fried chicken was awesome. Others had the fish special which also got rave reviews, as did the French Onion soup. Good beer, wine, and spirits selection. Great atmosphere. Tuesday nights' entertainment was a guy playing a Chapmans Stick (look it up).

We have been to Currents many times and the food is consistently amazing. The service is top notch and the drinks delicious, with a great beer menu. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant!

The food and service were good. We were disappointed that more fish items were not on the menu. We liked our wine selection and they had a nice selection of brews. The brownie with ice cream, whipped cream and caramel was fantastic and easily shared by two.

We ate at Currents on a Sunday evening in late September. The Salida historic district was only moderately crowded on this evening, being a Sunday and a bit late in the season, but Currents had a lively looking crowd along with drink specials and food specials. One of the bartenders was standing near the door and his friendly demeanor prompted... More

This will be a neutral review. We didn't take ill from the food, but it definitely wasn't one we'll talk about for months to come. Probably because the memories of our mind blowing dining at The Rabbit Hole and Edelweiss in Colorado Springs the day before were still fresh (see separate reviews for each). In summary: We were hungry. We... More
