Being from New Orleans originally, I was quite impressed with seafood selection and the quality of the dishes. The seafood is fresh and the seasoning makes it feel like cajun/creole eatery. Just be prepared for long lines and many fried options... but not many healthy ones!

Great seafood. It was busy and took a very long time for us to get our food and then they forgot our silverware and napkin. Felt it was a little pricey for what we got. Great to see all food and containers and silverware is recycled.

Waited in long line for the previously perfect fried oyster po boy. When finally delivered, the hot sauce burned my mouth and ruined the awaited feast. Not likely to wait in line again

Perched atop the Minnehaha Falls, Sea Salt serves amazing sea food in a unique setting. Not what you would expect as you're biking along the Lakes and Minnehaha of Minneapolis. Well worth the wait on a warm summer day, and a good bargain for such fresh sea food!

There are places that are on everyone’s must do lists and this is one of those places. If you go to Minneapolis don’t leave without visiting the Sea Salt Eatery. A fine place to eat out on a warm summers evening and an opportunity to try something different.

Visited today which was the first really beautiful day of the year and the first week Sea Salt was open for the year so we were expecting a wait. Waited in line for about 30 minutes to order and then another 30 for the food to be brought out. Everyone was happy with their food except for the fish tacos.... More

Great location, beautiful setting, relaxed atmosphere and to die for food! We love this little gem. Everything we've ordered is delicious! Go before or after the dinner rush or you'll be waiting in a long line. It does move at a fair pace, but it is still a line. Fun to chat with the others in line. Try a cooler... More

Sea Salt has always been a fun place to visit while visiting Minnehaha Falls! However, bring your patience with you! From parking, to the long lines, it will take quiet a while to get in here, on your average day. The seafood is fresh and they offer fun drinks, too! They do sell out of many items from time to...

Owned and operated by Coastal Seafoods which supplies the vast majority of local stores and restaurants with seafood throughout the year, this charming restaurant is open from April through October each year in the Minnehaha Park Pavilion located in south Minneapolis. Everything on the menu is fresh and well prepared. Fried oysters cooked to perfection, raw oysters on the half... More
