Went looking for Starbucks and found Currents. So lucky. Husband had fish tacos and I had green chili and salmon salad. The fish was shark - a first for us and worth the try. Excellent chili and salad. Awesome waitress, wine and draft local beer. I hope our travels bring us back to Salida, Co.

We enjoyed our meal. My husband had a good steak, cooked well.I ate the mussels and pasta. It was good but lacking in a lot of flavor. Perhaps because I know Italian food well, I was more critical.But not the best. Service was good too.

Lots of brews and wines to choose from, plus interesting menu choices and specials. We had their crispy salmon tacos--very tasty.

Food was OK, but portion was small. Seafood was overcooked a little bit. Dessert tasted like freezer. The young waiter was either not excited about his job or lack of desire to communicate, never recommended anything or checked on us.

We called in here mid-afternoon for something to drink and we had seen people sitting outside in the sun in a pleasant seating area. When i went inside I was not sure that it was the sort of place I would normally use - seemed more just like a bar than somewhere for a coffee. However the guy behind the... More

We ate at Currents twice while traveling through Salida on our travels in southern Colorado. Currents is located in trendy downtown Salida and offers both indoor and outdoor seating. The patio outside is on the street and makes for casual eating and people watching in Salida. This restaurant specializes in fresh seafood and we had the swordfish and the grouper,... More

Lunch or dinner, the food quality is the best and the atmosphere is wonderful. We go here every time we are in town. They also sell local wines and spirits, which is a big bonus! Burgers and steaks are cooked properly to order and are very tasty. One of our favorite places in Salida.

We were looking for a place to eat on our way home after camping for Labor Day weekend. We parked and walked into the center of town and saw this place that offered some pretty outdoor seating. The outdoor area was full so we selected a table inside. They had a great selection of craft beers and liquor and I... More

The hostess/waitress was very friendly. The food was excellent... this place would've earned 5 stars if the crab cakes were even somewhat good. Our other orders were: The fried chicken: excellent The smoked salmon salad: excellent The turkey wrap: excellent The crab cakes: bad... they were nothing but breading. The service was good. The prices are high for a lunch... More
