    Great food

  4. Carl Samuels

    The atmosphere at this adorable inn/ pub is unmatched! When you walk in, you are greeted with the most friendly of staff who continue to provide great service throughout your entire visit! The menu is very with wonderful local selections. The clam chowder is a deconstructed version of the highest caliber ingredients. It is not to be missed. The fish and chips are of the catch of the day, when we were there it was halibut and absolutely fantastic. Fantastic. They also have a wonderful assortment of salads. The roasted root vegetable salad is absolutely fantastic. Not only is the food amazing, the view is wonderful with a view of the Ilwaco. Marina. I would highly recommend this venue.

  5. Emilia Wilson

    Best salmon dip I’ve had in my life! The salmon cioppino was delicious and had hefty portions of seafood. The halibut fish & chips were cooked perfectly and the breading was delicious. We visited the restaurant while staying in the state park and loved everything we got. We would definitely recommend stopping here for seafood!

  6. Kristen Fry

    This place is great. The Ilwaco area is starting to revitalize and you can see how much effort the community is putting in. The hotel check-in was a breeze. The room was simple and the price in January was a steal. I cannot say enough about the choices of art throughout the hotel and pub. Local, creative and high quality. The pub was outstanding. Wasn’t expecting such top notch food and service. We had dinner and brunch there. I would recommend this place to anyone.

  7. Sharon Nauta

    Great food with a stunning view! What’s not to love?

  8. Kristen Orlando

    Delicious lunch stop in Ilwaco on a rainy Sunday…

  9. Tobby K!

    We have not stayed in the hotel yet, but the food and atmosphere was bitchin! Thanks, Peter, for your sense of humor!

  10. Doug

  11. Lori Davis

    Delicious food and big portions. Friendly staff and the fries are soooo good!

  12. Curtis Allworth

    Fantastic food, great service and nice view!

  13. Nathan Allworth

    Great place to stay and eat! A clean, modern renovation of an older property brings out the best in it. The attached restaurant featured friendly staff, thoughtful dishes, and craft cocktails with a great view of the Port of Ilwaco.

  14. Amber Allworth

    Delicious food in a really fun environment! Friendly service and beautiful views of the harbor! Will definitely be back!

  15. Suzy Williams

    Hidden gem 👍 would have given 6 stars. A perfect meal in every way.

  16. Jordan Del Valle Tonoian

    Food was great and service was quick! Oysters weren’t available the day I visited but it sounded like they had a lunch rush shortly before my visit that ran them out. Clam Chowder was more brothy than thick and had clams in-shell which was different. It was great, but if you’re particular about your chowder then keep that in mind.

  17. Adeela Iqbal

    Melt was great and salad was perfect with the raspberry sauce

  18. Grillman

    excellent cuisine and service, got a free treat from the chef – very nice!

  19. Dawn Farrar

    Hamburgers were a little under cooked. No bathtubs in the rooms

  20. Ross Hanby

    Food & drinks: Excellent food. Fresh, amazing flavors and beautiful design

  21. Jon Turner

    Stopped for lunch while letting crab pots soak. Great service and food. Will be back soon.

  22. Amanda Marsh

    Love thus place great as always

  23. Scott Davis

    Great happy hour! Good cocktails and killer apps!

  24. Ginger Rohmer

    This place has the best Cuban sandwich I’ve ever had.

  25. Darren Smith

    Salt was almost an accident this day – Easter Sunday and very little was open in the area, so we ended up here for a late lunch and will definitely be returning. Rhoda waited on us and she was fast, friendly, and efficient. The first interaction of a meal sets the entire tone, and she made it excellent! We started with ceviche and for entrees; I got a burger and my wife ordered a vegetarian bowl – we were both extremely happy – food was perfect and really tasty (make sure to add the candied jalapeños to your burger). The food was served fast with great timing between the appetizer and entree. The atmosphere is comfortable with views of the pier/dock/river. If you are in the area when it is open (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays), be sure to try this gem.

  26. Kyle Alden

    The owners are super people, nice location, good food, well appointed rooms with nice decor

  27. I Carmelo (Gigi Love)

    Great broccoli cheese soup

  28. Brenna Witherspoon

    The food was incredible and truly the service was even better. Can’t wait to make it back.

  29. Kimberly Campbell

    Best clam chowder I have ever had. Excellent oyster shooters and fish n chips. Great presentations, perfect flavors! Friendly service, cold beer.

  30. Dustin Repp

    Must visit! Great little restaurant right on the marina. Fantastic food and wonderful staff!

  31. Penelope Gregor

    We were staying at the hotel for the night before our early deep fishing trip in the morning. We tried this restaurant, fresh oysters were delicious, they were featuring the tinkerbell oysters? and tuna melt was great as well.

  32. Karen Bassi

    Ate at the Salt Pub on a hot 88 degree day, after spending hours at the Cape Dissapointment State Park which is located three minutes from this hotel&pub. (Excellent location!) There are two ways to enter the pub, from the hotel courtyard and from the back walking path that runs along the marina and numerous shops. There is both indoor and outdoor dining, we sat inside to get a break from the sun. Our server PETER deserves the utmost respect from management and honestly deserves a promotion. From our first interaction as he approached us, to paying the bill and leaving, he provided the highest quality customer service. We love you Peter!!! We ordered the salmon spread with sourdough bread, tuna melt with fries, and a weekend special seafood alfredo. Delicious food, that will leave you scraping your plate no matter how full you are. Please come check out and support this establishment!

  33. John Huffstutter

    They set a special table outside for us so our dogs didn’t have to stay in the car. Best salmon dip ever–house made, their recipe. Clams were awesome, and superb service. Overlooks a working marina, south to Oregon. We’ll probably stay there next trip!

  34. Audrey González

    Great ambiance, excellent service, friendly bartender and amazing food.

  35. Bobb F

    Really like the place. Will be back for sure

    Food & drinks: Food and drinks were very good.

  36. Layton Rosencrance

    Friendly, helpful staff. Food was a bit overpriced for the quality.

  37. Hans Bruhner

    I love Salt. I did not stay there but have eaten there about 10 times. The Cubano sandwich and the Tuna melt are my absolute favorites. They both come with awesome fries. The fish and chips is great and fresh and everything else is good as well.

  38. Todd Heissenbuttel

    Very friendly staff, excellent food, and fair prices!

  39. Parker Marshall

    One of our favorite spots especially if it is a nice day. Great staff, great food and an unbeatable view of the harbor. Everything you want on the coast in one place.

  40. Jeni Broussard

    I don’t often do reviews, unless I’m just so impressed by a place that I can’t contain the urge to spread my excitement to others. This place is a rare gem. We ate at the pub, and will definitely return to stay in their hotel as well.

    There’s a shortage of fresh, creative food in Astoria, so cross the river to soak in the charm of this sleepy little town and do not miss eating at Salt Pub. The menu is super creative, with both comfort food classics and inspired Northwest dishes to meet the needs of both health conscious eaters and folks looking for some comfort. Everything we got was fantastic, and we would order each of those things again. The seafood is fresh off the boat, each day’s dishes being prepared with the catch of the day. The energy is fresh, and hip, and fun. The staff is super welcoming and friendly, and we left there already planning our next trip back. We got oysters, fish tacos, fish and chips, some excellent local beer, and the roasted vegetable salad. They were all wonderful, and that roasted vegetable salad is definitely a standout. If you’re looking for a delicious bowl of fresh vegetables expertly prepared with delicate flavors that you’ll want a second helping of (which I am forever in search of) that’s definitely it. Can’t wait to return!

  41. Max Kastl

    The burger was amazing! Such a cool little place.

  42. Tiffany Ridenour

    We dined here in April 2023 on a rainy evening and both my husband and I ordered the crab and shrimp mac and cheese! Wowzers! So good!!! So much flavor and loved the presentation!! I’m pretty easy to please on presentation though – ha. I was between two cocktails offered on the menu, so I let the bartender choose for me and boy was it fantastic! Everyone dining around us was enjoying their drinks and food, wasn’t a face without a smile in the restaurant. We are looking forward to visiting again!

    High and low tables and bar seating options. Indoor and outdoor seating. Lovely view!

    There was a young toddler with a couple while we were there and it was completely pleasant, so I could this being family friendly.

    Food & drinks: Food was fab, see full review. We did not stay in the hotel, we just dined.

  43. D’Wayne Haskins

    Great place. Good food great service fresh fish. We’ll be back

  44. Brian Krous

    Amazing menu, it all looked so good, had the smoked tuna melt, was excellent and the fries were spectacular. Will be back

  45. Lisa Steinmeyer

    Fabulous gem of a restaurant! Charming ambience. I had the clam chowder…best I’ve ever had! So fresh! Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!!

  46. Susan Evers

    Great pub food– fish and chips, and seafood cioppino were today’s cuisine. Located by the boat harbor with nice window view from most tables.

  47. Debra Jones

    Food & drinks: They have a bar & restaurant attached to lodging. Know by locals as the best place to eat, drink and stay in one of the rooms. Outside seating with view of the Marina. Saturday Market is outside on the walkway.

  48. Cory Medina

    We are at the restaurant, it was great food. Clams and tacos were great! We had burgers and they were big and yummy! Lots of local beers. Service was good, people were friendly.

  49. carole

    Ate at the restaurant great view and wonderful food

  50. Margarita Olvera Morse

    Came here on a Saturday, which also happens to be the day Ilwaco has their Farmers Market, so we did have to sign up on the waitlist in order to be seated at the restaurant. It was less than 20 minutes later that I received a text stating our table was ready! Even though they were clearly busy, the servers were all friendly and the food came to us in a reasonable time. We tried the Crab & Shrimp Mac & Cheese, clam chowder, and grilled cheese sandwich. The pasta was INCREDIBLE with large chunks of Dungeness Crab and little shrimps scattered throughout. The chowder was less traditional/more modern version of the dish (with in-shell steamer clams on top and a thinner broth) but delightful still. Despite being on the kids menu, we were able to get a grilled cheese for the non-seafood eater, who stated it was one of the best sandwiches she’s ever have. Great beer selection and full bar. Awesome location with plenty of shopping around. Recommend!

  51. Jessica Wright

    My husband and I had lunch here while visiting the coast. The service was great. Loved the atmosphere and view. Delicious drinks and oysters on the half shell. I also got the salmon and crispy polenta with greens which was good but needed more flavor. It needed more sauce or vinaigrette for the salmon and polenta which was a bit dry and lacking flavor. My husband had the Cubano which was OK. We would definitely give it another try in the future.

  52. Donielle Vest

    Great food and service
