The seafood at Salmon Dave’s Pacific Grille is not only the freshest you can get, it’s guaranteed, says general manager Carolyn Miller. The Rocky River institution is known for its unbeatable seasonal seafood specials such as the first run catch of Alaska’s Copper River Salmon in the summer, the “Taste of N’awlins” in February (don’t miss the Gumbo Yaya) and the “Maine Event” featuring the Lobster Bake (1¼-pound Maine lobster, half a chicken, a half dozen clams, corn and roasted potatoes).
But seafood rules the land year-round at Salmon Dave’s, and Miller says you don’t want to miss these standouts from the surf:
Dave’s signature salmon is best enjoyed pan roasted with lobster risotto, baby spinach and lobster velouté sauce. “That’s probably one of the most popular dishes for sure,” she says, adding that the velouté cream sauce is something special.
Experience Asian fusion with the Spicy Seafood Lo Mein sampler featuring salmon, shrimp, bay scallops, stir-fried vegetables and cashews.
Shrimp & Scallops is another best seller complemented by stellar sides of mushroom and spring pea risotto, broccolini and beurre blanc sauce.
