Description: Fresh Salt is located in the Saybrook Point Inn. Our tables overlook the waters of the Connecticut River where the fresh river meets the salt of the sound. It's a treasured and historic spot. In nature the most vibrant life happens where systems meet. These places are rich in life, and our restaurant reflects that lively diversity. We have a raw bar, a seasonally varied menu, and offer as much as we can from the farms, brewers, cheese makes and other food enterprises that are springing up around our region. Fresh Salt delivers a dining experience that's comfortable and relaxed. Our staff is here to be of service to you, our kitchen stands ready with fresh ingredients, a deep wine cellar and carefully crafted fusions of foods and beverages that bring tastes together in delicious and new ways. We have tables by the fire, at the bar, and in season offer seating outdoors on the Fresh Salt Terrace.

Wonderful stop for boys-night-out after tennis. There a reason we live by the water and this place captures the spirit of living on the shoreline where the CT River joins Long Island Sound. Old Saybrook is a resort town where we share a love for water based activities. Seafood is of course the perfect pairing with their wonderful selection of... More

While staying at the Saybrook Point Inn, we ate in Fresh Salt three times during the weekend. The food was very good, but the service varied. The first night, our waiter seemed to drop the ball a few times. He brought us our wine glasses, but forgot to bring us the wine until much later when we had to remind... More
