Over the past few years, the term “salt life” has come to identify those who prefer to spend their time at the ocean, whether to surf, dive, or simply relax along the beach. Salt Life Food Shack embodies this ocean-centric culture at its three beachside locations run by four self-proclaimed extreme surfers, spearfishers, and overall watermen.
At the community-driven locations, you’ll find a full menu packed with sandwiches, salads, and fresh seafood, including seared ahi tuna, soft-shell crab, and oysters. When Folio Weekly gave Salt Life Food Shack its Best New Restaurant award in 2010, it described the marinated fresh tuna in Caliche’s Poke Bowl as “make-you-pick-a-fight-it’s-so-good.” Completing the salt life theme are the surf decorations, which range from ocean pictures to a saltwater aquarium to long blonde wigs hanging from the wall.
