Located in Minnehaha Falls Pavilion, Sea Salt Eatery has become known for its beautiful location, fun and inviting atmosphere, and great seafood. Voted “2008 Best Seafood Restaurant” by City Pages, it is becoming increasingly known for its unique and delicious addition to summer at the Falls.
My first impression of Sea Salt was that it seemed to be a cross between Como Zoo and Key West: children being pushed in strollers and eating ice cream mingled with people devouring dishes that are seldom seen this far north. Sea Salt’s atmosphere seems to be inescapably tied to the Falls: open, fun, and full of memories.

An American wheat ale brewed with Saaz hops, Bell’s Oberon is both spicy and fruity and perfect for summer. Since it’s only around March 30th through October, make sure you take advantage of it while it’s available!
