Had a lunch here; place was busy but were seated right away. staff was courteous and fast with drinks and delivery of food. Companion had a chicken Cesar salad and i had a hot pastrami sandwich. Both meals were tasty and very good. So much food that we skipped dessert! Will definitely return!

Hello my friends, I held back from reviewing any restaurants for a very long time. Over the last year plus from Maine to Conn. the establishments that took my money were not worthy of a review. The Old Salt Eating & Drinking Place is worth every cent of your hard earned money!!!!! We love it for the Sunday Brunch. Wow... More

We took the long way home back from a day in the White Mountains and wanted some fresh seafood. Based on the reviews we decided to go here...wish we made a different choice. We walked in the side door, apparently not the right way although there was no way of knowing that. Staff saw us walk in and look lost... More

We stopped here on way home from a day in Portsmouth. We had stopped years ago and hubby remembered it was good - I had forgotten. So glad we stopped. What a nice, friendly, relaxing place. Our waitress Gabby was lovely and so efficient. Gave us recommendations and answered our questions. She was great. A great waitress makes such a... More

This is right up there with the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. The service is impeccable. The food and prices incredible and my oh my the clam chowder and their home made rolls. We generally eat there at least three times during our week long stay at Pebble Cove Motel......another incredible Gem. The early bird dinners are excellent.... More

None better for overall dining and especially the baked stuffed Lobster. While I live in the west now, I always make sure to stop at the Old Salt whenever I am back in New England. This is one of two of my must stops when I am back there.

Our 2nd annual trip to Hampton NH, and our dinner, lunch, and breakfast were included in our package when we stayed at Lamie Inn. I love to cook & back, so I am a very hard customer to impress. Have to say that the steak tips that I ordered for dinner were cooked to perfection, as was the baked potato,... More

As a local resident, I've dined at the old salt many times. Now, I don't eat seafood, so I always order something non fishy from the menu. Most everything is fried on the menu...always has been probably always will be. So unless you want a salad or a sandwich... you're probably going to end up with something fried. I usually... More
