We had gone when salt creek first took over the fisherman’s wharf. Wasn’t impressed at that time. Went back again last weekend —-good food quality pleasant and efficient service. Did not feel rushed though the place got packed while we were there

Best brunch around. Fresh smoked fish, crab legs, shrimp and you can have your omelette anyway you want.

Great location! Average food and expensive. The quality has left the building. We don’t mind spending on a great meal but Salt Creek, you have lost your greatness. Honestly, go for the ambiance, salad and burger. Everything else is ho-hum and overpriced :(

Excellent service, nice if not glamorous interior. Not much of a view after dark. The food was the real attraction, and for the most part our party of three was not disappointed. Lobster bisque was thin, but meaty and flavorful. Blackened swordfish andChilean sea bass...More

Smart casual. Bermudas are fine. Short shorts would be out of place. Cargo shorts would also.

Not buffet style. It leans pricey but for the quality I found it worth it.
