Salt life focuses on making everything from scratch. The coastal fare features dishes like ceviches, sushi rolls, Ensenada tacos, east coast shrimp rolls and soft-shell crab BLTs, as well as the standard ribs burgers, and wings. The restaurant also has a fairly large list of craft beers and cocktails. According to Leahy, each locations menu will differ slightly depending on the local population. "The menus are a bit different in both locations," he says, "We have clam chowder on the menu here, because South Florida has a large Northeastern population. Throughout the country people's definition of a salt life is different."

Avid fishermen and divers themselves, Leahy and Saig liked the brand's homage to the oceanic lifestyle. As of right now there are plans for two new locations: Stuart and Fort Lauderdale. The Stuart location, which is located on an old bridge, is going to be a ways out due to the engineering factors in the design. Fort Lauderdale, which is currently in the works, can happen quickly. Currently Leahy and his partner are in talks with the City of Fort Lauderdale. And they are keeping quiet about the location until all of the details have been sorted out.
In addition to its 'weekly get-togethers'--i.e. different specials every day of the week--the restaurant will be featuring a Valentine's Day special this Thursday through Saturday. For $19.99, it includes a six ounce sirloin, a five ounce lobster tail, and a side.
