Really great burgers!

I had one of their burgers with cheese (I think gruyere). Everything was delicious and cooked as asked. Service was pleasant, fast and friendly. I'm giving it only 4 stars because of the decor. It really needs an update but other than that, it's a great place to eat.

I had heard and read some good things about Salt, so my friend and I decided to try it. Be aware that the parking lot is not large enough; if you don't get there on the early side, I'm not sure where you can park once the lot is full. We had reservations for 6 pm on a Friday and... More

We have already been to Salt a few times and have enjoyed the food, the menu is creative. Last night was late, stopping on the way home from the airport after a delayed flight. It is nice to have a restaurant in the area whose kitchen is open until 11 on Friday and Saturday nights. The real treat of last... More

Don't let the outside fool you, it doesn't look like much but it is worth trying. My wife and I have been here twice and had great meals both times. We can recommend the salmon and skirt steak. Also, the goat cheese croquettes were excellent. Beer selection is great and we tried the chimay triple.

Have been here twice now and food was great both times. Ordered some of the same items second time and they were just as good as the first time. Love the fact that food can be ordered to your own taste. The risotto has mushrooms, no problem getting it without mushrooms and it is delicious. As is the salmon with... More

I went on business trip to the area. A coworker recommended this place for a low-key dinner. It was excellent. I highly recommend the chicken, bacon, cheddar dip. I couldn't get enough of it! We went on Monday and they have an "Off the Menu" special which is what I ordered. It was great food and service was great. Didn't... More

I had read great things about this place but am sorry to say we were very disappointed. First off, parking is horrible. We got there on a Friday night about 7:30 pm and could not get a spot in the lot. We ended up parking at the shopping center lot across the street. I had called ahead (probably just 45-60... More

This used to be our favorite restaurant, but I'm sad to say the standards are dropping. Service is fine, drinks are fine, even dessert is fine...but the food is no longer amazing. The chicken paprikash used to be to die for..now it's always watery with overcooked rubbery chicken. Wings had almost no sauce on them last time, just overcooked fried... More

Been traveling back to NJ for years, on family issues. Budd Lake, my most recent project, has a relative dearth of good restaurants. So happy to have found Salt. Definitely a bar, with food and bar-type food at that, the menu is limited but solid. Excellent salads, good aps, good entrees. Decent wine list as well. This is also a... More

but I'm shocked by all of the positive reviews. I've been here twice and I won't go back again. None of the food is fresh, and it is all overcooked and over seasoned to hide that fact. Rude servers who don't care and are not helpful. The two times my friends and I have been they made us feel like... More
