Before sports bars, the only place to view eight games simultaneously was inside the brain of a spider. Achieve octovision with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of drinks, seafood, and American and international cuisine at Salty River Sports Bar & Grill.
Salty River's family-friendly colorful setting plays host to a panoply of international dishes, frothy beers, and live musical acts. Pull up to a table and peruse or memorize the menu, bustling with seafood dishes such as the Salty-style buffalo-fried shrimp ($6.49) and the Cajun-breaded fish fingers accompanied with basil tartar sauce ($9.99). Or sling a Midwestern burger, packed with bacon, red onion, and cheddar cheese ($6.99), right off the sizzling grill and pair it with some fried pickles ($3.99). Three specialty pizzas, such as the margarita ($7.49) and Castellani—slathered with roasted garlic, artichokes, mozzarella, prosciutto, and romano cheese ($6.99)—prove the existence of a true pizza Picasso. A slice of chocolate or chocolate-carrot cake ($4.29) concludes meals with a dose of sweetness.
Patrons can pop in at anytime to savor one of more than 14 frothy brews on tap, dive into the oyster bar, or imbibe a fine wine from one of Salty River’s two bars, which surround 12 plasma and mini TVs playing all manner of sports. A selection of cigars and hookah flavors proffer a relaxing cheef-puff, whereas karaoke on Tuesday and reggae music with Les B Fine Friday evening entertain ears more ably than a comedy-spouting q-tip.
