This is essentially an outdoor fried seafood cafeteria. Since nothing is local fish, its all frozen and brought in, and then deepfried. That being said, it was pretty good, not very greasy, and good portion sizes. You stand on a line (outside) to place an...More

This is the third time we've brought visitors to the park and the third time we've been let down by this eatery. The wait is absurdly long and the food is bland. The highlights were the beer menu and the nearby ice cream truck. And...More

We were able to grab ice cream and beverages from the eatery. The line for food was too long for us, but we were able to find a bench to enjoy our treats. Excellent spot!

Nestled in the center of beautiful Minehaha Park Is Sea Salt, a fun casual shrimp shack with tons of shaded outdoor tables. I had the fried shrimp basket and the briny iodiney taste instantly transported me to to east coast. Great beers on tap too!...More

The view of the falls is great. Lots of people here, so you need to expect a 30 minute wait in line. The food is so-so. I like the soups the best. And the local beer selection is very good.

Beautiful spot next to Minnehaha Falls. Some good trail hikes available. Great open air seating in the park. Scallop tacos were good, beer selection was terrific.

Not too impressed. The food was nothing special and it was expensive for a cafeteria-style outdoor venue.

The wait in line is well worth it for the excellent fish tacos, but the line does take forever. The views of Minnehaha Falls are spectacular. It's a perfect summer outing. I would highly recommend it! Also the Nicollet Ave Pothole ice-cream at Sebastian Joe's...More
