    What a great experience we had!! The ambience, service, and food were top tier! Price was reasonable too. The $49 mixed grille option is a great option for first timers looking to try some great items for a good price. We’ll definitely be back 😁.

    The whole experience was outstanding. They had our table ready when we arrived, the service was impeccable, the food was all delicious. Several of us got the 2 course serf and turf special which was a great deal and a nice way to try several different dishes. They brought out a complimentary dessert for the birthday in our party. We will be back.

    We have eaten here several times and never had anything but excellent service & exceptional meals. You are greeted warmly the minute you walk in and treated like a valued guest by the servers, bartenders, and managers. If you are looking for good fried green tomatoes in the north, look no further! Although they are known for sea food, my filet mignon absolutely melted in my mouth. I suggest the surf & turf. The lobster was so moist & sweet it didn’t need the butter. The Salmon and Sword fish are also delicious. Do yourself a favor and save room for the Atlantic Breach Pie or a Chocolate Martini for dessert.

    Service was great, our server was very attentive. The food was okay, didn’t have much flavor. The flat iron steak was very tough, the gumbo didn’t have much rice in it and the bouillabaisse was very bland. The lobster bisque & the bourbon shrimp was outstanding!! The only minor complaint was our glasses had lipstick on them and the silverware was dirty. Overall I would rate our first experience a 5/10, but I don’t think it was worth $168.

    Our first time at Salmon Dave’s and we loved it! Wes was our server and he was fantastic. Informative and attentive with a good personality. Food was outstanding. Started with lobster bisque and bread with honey butter. I had surf and turf and my wife had mahi special. Will definitely be back and will bring some friends.

    Salmon Dave's and our server were both excellent. The food was incredible...of course, I had to get the salmon. It was the best Salmon I've had, and I've lived in San Diego :) My dad loved the Walleye dish. Our server was attentive and incredibly considerate, bringing out a birthday creme brulee! I couldn't have asked for a better dinner.

    We asked for separate bills and they were all confused with each other’s items. There were 7 of us and 4 bills. Server delivered 6/7 meals to wrong people. Ordered my second drink before ordering food and food came out before my drink arrived. Assume bar slow. Checks came very late. 30 min after meal/ dessert/ coffee finished. Server fantastic but overwhelmed with the nite Sunflower seeds rancid Wedge was so far away from a “wedge” not enjoyable. Risotto terribly under seasoned Salmon under seasoned Enormous amount of sauce over crab cake which was small Lobster bisque not served hot I might return for happy hour at bar but seemed way too crowed with seating excessively placed. Very disappointing. I remember this being a “go to” when I lived at The Westlake.
