My brother took me here when I came up for a visit. One of the best pizzas I've ever had. Wait staff is some of the best anywhere. Can't wait to come back.

Went there for dinner with friends and quickly fell in love with the place. The cream of garlic soup is to die for!

Great food, great atmosphere. One of three or four restaurants in the small town, but the only one we tried. Everything was good, farm-to-table food.

We liked the simplicity of the restaurant. The dishes were interesting and very tasty. The waitstaff was super efficient and friendly. They represent the name of the restaurant well. Healthy, simple menu selections that were delicious. The S'More dessert is definitely worth trying!

I had one of my best meals ever at Salt of the Earth. All of their food comes from within a 50 mile radius of the restaurant so it is fresh and delicious. They even make their condiments homemade. If you've never had homemade mayo and ketchup on your hamburger you will be blown away. I had a braised pork... More

This place was recommended by the B&B we stayed at for our anniversary. It is pricey but so worth the cost. The food is amazing. It was suggested that I try the brussels sprouts which were unbelievable. They are served in a vinegar sauce which adds to the flavor. The macaroni and cheese was also a delicious side. The food...

My wife and I have always wanted to stop at Salt of the Earth. Last night, we were treated to exquisite food and service. Our server, TL, treated us like we were in her home. Salt of the Earth is a laid back experience. If you tend toward the drive thru mind-set or the sports bar fast fare, keep driving.... More
