Perfect blend of local flavors prepared to satisfy! Salt of the Earth is the place to enjoy warm ambiance and friendly service. From Matt or Victor at the bar to Casey and the dinning room team Chef Matt creates the best of farm to fork and even has his own garden!

Salt of the Earth combines exceptional service, food, talent and a flare for fun in the sleepy town of Fennville located in Southwest Michigan. Somehow owner Mark Schrock is able to aquire amazing talent for his concert series, Tuesdays in the summer and Sundays in the winter including last week with indie folk/rock group "The Muteflutes" and his family dominated...

Exquisite dishes made with organic Michigan produce. A good place to go as a group, though perhaps not the best place for a couple as reservations are not accepted for parties of under 6 and it can get a bit loud too. Service was excellent. I highly recommend their bread, which is the best in the area. Prices are on... More

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

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.
