    I usually go here for the ice cream. But they have a lot of different drinks. Nice stop when you're out for a walk or in for one of the mini-festivals.

    The fried oyster po' boy sandwich (also known in New Orleans as an oyster loaf), at $12.95, is a delightful study of contrasts of textures and flavors. Read more

    If there is a better grilled catfish po' boy sandwich somewhere else, I haven't tasted it.

    Grab a Surly tallboy. If you have time, stick around and try the sake oyster shooters.

    The never-changing basic menu includes favorites like the fish tacos, shrimp po'boys, and the famous oil pan (18 shrimp, 12 oysters, and pickled herring on ice). [Eater 38 Member]

    Everything is good. I especially love the fried calamari, fried fish basket, crawfish po' boy, and tilapia tacos.

    Treat the kids to some fish tacos and a scoop of Sebastian Joe's ice cream. Eating great food on a patio near the rushing falls, the kids will easily remember this spot in the park.

    Always super busy so try to go a little before or after normal lunch hours. And be sure to check out the falls right behind the restaurant. Read more

    Fresh fish, live bluegrass (with a saw player!), and all my fellow progressive neighbors. A South Minneapolis gem! Staff is also killer.

    Fabulous place to stop while biking!

    Etiquette when it's super crowded: place your order and THEN stake claim on a table.

    Meghan Wilker · August 17, 2012
  • Sara B.

    Try the shrimp po'boy! The tobasco sauce on it makes it amazingggg!

    Sara Benton · August 7, 2011

    There are 2 lines here. 1 for ice cream and beer, other for food so it helps to walk in and actually look.

    This place is perfect for a date, lunch or dinner. Get to the amazing River View theater for a 3 dollar movie after words. Read more

    Order a beer/wine while you wait in line. Best fried oysters also great biking trail and view of Minnehaha Falls.

    I'm glad my wife was with me, I had the fish po boy, she had the shrimp basket we shared and both were amazing. I don't think I could pick one over the other. Bring a friend to maximize tastiness

    Lots of great live music at Sea Salt! Tonight I caught Cooker John.

    Best crab cakes and calamari in the city!

    Nothing can beat eating outside in the park except when you're eating outside in the park with a po boy in front of you. Quality seafood, beautiful setting - bike there and you'll burn it off!

    Beware the falling acorns! :) great entertainment if you don't get bonked on the head!

    We had an order of fish tacos and veggie tacos. It was delicious and enough food for 2 people. And the falls are gorgeous.

    I love the shrimp basket - delicious cornmeal breading. Give it a try!

    This place is perfect on a beautiful summer day. I had the crab cake sandwich, and I also tried the grilled marlin tacos and the vegetable gazpacho. Yummy. Great beers as well, both Surly and Summit. Read more

    If you don't do seafood, have the walnut burger! It's delicious.

    Unless you love waiting for at least an hour, don't bother going here on a weekend night. Or a weekday night.

    Voted top 15 places to eat with kids! What better way to wear an energized kid out than Minnehaha!

    The scallop tacos will haunt your dreams. Also, order 10 pitchers of beer.

    The grilled catfish po' boy is one of the best sandwiches in Minneapolis.

    Both the grilled marlin tacos and veggie tacos are fantastic! Wash them down with an ice cold Surly while watching the falls. Perfect summer evening.

    stopped there twice on Sunday during my bike rides. Beer, fresh fish, outside seating, in a park! what else could you need? GO!

    Bret Zimmerman · April 7, 2010

    Get beer from the truck if there is one. My furious was ~$9 after tax! (Truck beers are $5)

    What a nice place to spend a pretty fall day! Great beer and wine selection too!

    Sea Salt is a consternating force in the life of Twin Cities fish lovers. It's got the best fresh fish in town, like oysters shucked as you watch, which taste chilly, silky and fresh.

    Shorter lines during state fair

    Bryan Barnes · August 25, 2013

    Shortest line I ever seen, right before closing time...

    Great fish tacos, good beer on tap, great shaded patio. Perfect after Minnehaha Falls trek.

    Nice place if you like the smell of grease.

    Terrell Brown · July 10, 2013

    Hip. A bit pricey for the food.

    Sanputt Simasathien · July 8, 2013
  • Ginny H.

    There's a separate line for ice cream and for drinks so when the food line is an hour+ long, get yourself something for the wait.

    Ginny Heinrich · June 24, 2013

    Walleye sandwich can feed 3 adults.

    I love the food but sometimes the service is a little ridiculous. When it's slow I still don't get my appetizer before food.

    Samantha Forliti · May 9, 2013

    The ahi tuna burger is supremely delicious!

    Molly Baeverstad · September 6, 2012

    The sexy ahi sandwich is my favorite
