Anchored right on the river with sweeping views of the mighty Columbia and majestic Mt. Hood in the background, every seat at Salty's offers a majestic view with its two-story decks and walls of windows. Whether enjoying live Dungeness crab and Maine lobster (swimming in saltwater tanks in the lobby) to their world-famous Alaskan salmon and halibut in season, oysters and clams from Northwest beaches or USDA prime aged charbroiled steaks, pasta, chicken or luncheon salads and sandwiches, you will find many choices on their menus to please the most discriminating palette.

Edgefield Black Rabbit

The Edgefield Black Rabbit restaurant is located four miles north of Gresham on Halsey Street in a large European bed and breakfast. The site was restored recently and it has a very interesting history. The food is wonderful and it is a great place to go when the weather is good. The prices range from approximately $15 to $35 and they have good wine and beer. We recommend this restaurant for quality food and an interesting atmosphere that you will find nowhere else.
