Wonderful restaurant located a few miles south of Saugatuck, MI. Sources with food and in many instances drink from Michigan. Bar service was friendly and knowledgeable. Dinner was outstanding. We ordered the flattened chicken and ribeye steak. Both were delicious. A definite keeper!

This restaurant was fabulous in every sense of the word. The ambience, the food, the presentation, the staff ...wonderful! This place was very friendly and welcoming, and the food was unbelievably delicious. My family and I tried several items from the menu and each one made our palettes dance. I can not wait for my return visit to the area.

This is a gem in a small town just outside of Sugatuck, Michigan. The service and quality are great. The restaurant offers a "Home Town" feel but big time offerings. This menu offers a great value for the offerings. The wine list is limited but does offer some other wines that are not from Michigan vineyards. If you are in... More

This Salt of The Earth has a local farm to table Restaurant theme and this is unique. All food is locally raised or grown within fifty miles of this restaurant when possible (except some seafood and a few other items). All food is prepared on location and dinners will run between $24 and $31. The food is very good, albeit... More

Fen vile is a quaint town in SW Michigan. The restaurant facility is rustic and enjoyable. The food, much of which came from local providers, was very good. We were a large group and felt no pressure to order, eat and leave which was perfect. However, at times the waitress could have been more attentive.

We stopped through here based on a reco from our neighbor in Chicago --- We knew it would be good because of their recommendation - however, I was not sure when I pulled up to the tiny little town. The inside of the resto was really super nice. Very cute/cool. The food - was incredible. We had 2 pizzas -... More

Once again, I can only give an excellent establishment a four-star rating. I reserve five-star reviews for "transformative experiences" - those that will change the character of your vacation. However, farm-to-table restaurants are becoming more common. This is an excellent farm-to-table establishment - just not one that will be much different from others of it's type. As you'd expect, everything... More
