The Sea Salt Eatery, a summer destination for Nokomis and Longfellow "foodies," was the site of a lunch appointment with a good friend of mine a couple weeks ago. I'll admit this was my first time eating there, even though I had thought about it many times. Located right next to Minnehaha Falls, it's a great spot to enjoy a summer meal. While you wait for your food, go watch the water tumble over the falls or walk down to the Song of Hiawatha Garden. When your food arrives, take a seat at one of the outdoor tables and enjoy! The dishes are mainly seafood options, but there is plenty of variety. I enjoyed the crab cake plate and my friend enjoyed the fried shrimp plate. The food is reasonably priced and really is a great setting! Get there early on beautiful summer evenings though, word is that the line can sometimes be "out the door."
It’s the perfect stop on a bike tour around Minnehaha Parkway, the Minneapolis lakes, Midtown Greenway, and back on W River Parkway.
