Cute and home-made food.

Great farm to table food reasonably priced. Everything is made there, even the condiments. Service was good. Sitting outside on a beautiful night was enjoyable.

My wife, grown daughter and I ate at Salt of the Earth tonight around 5:30pm. This was our first time and we went based on these reviews. We were seated promptly but it took a little while before anyone came to our table but that was OK. We ordered an appetizer and drinks and enjoyed both. We ordered our main... More

Went here for brunch with my family. The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived and we were promptly seated at a table. We all ordered breakfast type dishes. The food was excellent, I really have no complaints about anything we ordered and we all enjoyed our meals. The service was very slow which was hard for our group since... More

Fresh and all local products make this an excellent choice in dining. Everyone loved their entrée and wood fired S'more was a real treat. Just a short drive from Saugatuck made it a great getaway for a nice meal.

Excellent food all made from scratch. It opens at 5:00 pm and it is important to get there early or you will wait. Expensive
