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

We visited Salt as a party of 9 on a Monday night (yes, they are open Mondays despite what Trip Advisor says). Our party was greeted warmly as we were seated and served most capably by Karissa. Great drink menu! Appetizers and drinks came out promptly. Entrees were conceived creatively and delicious. A restaurant this wonderful in such an unexpected... 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

We live nearby and have eaten at Salt many times. It is one of the better restaurants in the Saugatuck-Holland area, though would face tougher competition in a larger city. It has a farm to table concept, and the food usually seems quite fresh. One observation is that the menu does not change very often and we rarely have been... More

Large restaurant with a farm to table menu. Pate, gnudi, and a nice burger with homemade ketchup and good fries and fried brussel sprouts were the main items for our dinner. Good service also. Nice evening
