Our group ate at their Easter buffet. Their booking was a mess and did not allow time to cycle through seatings, leaving people packed in hallways and outdoors waiting past their reservation time. Once seated our server was very good. The area we were in had tchotchkes and such covering every inch of the walls. They were all dusty and... More

Had a wonderful lunch, with friends today at The Old Salt. Made a reservation, and a request to have a quiet table, so that we would be able to chat and 'catch up' with one another! Wonderfully accommodating!! Food was very good! BLT on ciabatta with house made chips, turkey club with fries and roast beef sandwich with house chips,... More

Homemade bread pudding for dessert was delicious! Although it was off... More

The Old Salt makes you feel like you are eating in an old inn. The décor is all wood with a big fireplace and heavy tables. The food is well prepared and the service is good. If you are looking for just a good basic restaurant the Old Salt is it

Previously spoke to Chef Robert about making the beer battered haddock again for us that was award winning delicious! He said that we could order it anytime even if it was not on special. We were thrilled to hear about this. Tonight, during restaurant week ( 04/11/17). We called in to order two orders for takeout of beer battered haddock... More
