THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Salmon River Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: Fresh seafood, beautifully prepared and thoughtfully presented, is the hallmark of this restaurant. It's gained a fan base in the area---and we can see why. Fresh catch of the day and shellfish standards get star treatment, with carefully selected vegetables providing an excellent complement. The food stands out because of its very simplicity---a hard quality to find in a city known for its gustatory gymnastics. There's also a nice prix-fixe menu for early diners.
