With a couple locations, this did feel like a bit like a chain. The service was always great. The food was good but not memorable. They have a great drink menu and it does get busy at night.More

Great place. Service excellent, fast. Wait staff very attentive. Ahi-tuna salad was super. Have to return to get my “Salt Life” car decal. Would definitely go back. Noise level was much quieter than expected.

Salt Life has a fun atmosphere, oyster shooters are delicious and tacos are reasonably priced. Service is great but this place can get packed so be prepared to wait.
