Description: Fresh Salt is located in the Saybrook Point Inn. Our tables overlook the waters of the Connecticut River where the fresh river meets the salt of the sound. It's a treasured and historic spot. In nature the most vibrant life happens where systems meet. These places are rich in life, and our restaurant reflects that lively diversity. We have a raw bar, a seasonally varied menu, and offer as much as we can from the farms, brewers, cheese makes and other food enterprises that are springing up around our region. Fresh Salt delivers a dining experience that's comfortable and relaxed. Our staff is here to be of service to you, our kitchen stands ready with fresh ingredients, a deep wine cellar and carefully crafted fusions of foods and beverages that bring tastes together in delicious and new ways. We have tables by the fire, at the bar, and in season offer seating outdoors on the Fresh Salt Terrace.

“Sunday Brunch At Fresh Salt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

My daughter and I had a lovely brunch today at Fresh Salt. The buffet was just truly amazing with everything you could think of. What a spread. the food was delicious. When upon entering there was Christmas carolers sing in the main entrance. The atmosphere, holiday cheer decorations were beautiful. I will most likely be back for the brunch again. My daughter will celebrate her 11th Birthday with a few friends in January They will have a sleep over,swim and enjoy the spa. I know she and her friends will enjoy every minute. She cant wait!!!

Thank you for your review. The swordfish is an item we believe is really special so it is especially satisfying when it is mentioned. Just whisper though as we do not know anyone else that serves it.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Went to Fresh Salt for the first time and it was wonderful. I had the Salad Nicoise
and the tuna was perfect as was everything else in the delicious salad. We had
a creme brulee that was beautiful to look at and delicious. Although, I could
do without the pear in the center.
Can't wait to go back for dinner at this exceptional restaurant with the great view!

“delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Great breakfast, wonderful view and wonderful staff! We arrived just a little late for the restaurant on our first night at the inn. We were still able to order a nice dinner from the restaurant as room service. It was more romantic that way.

I'm concerned that you were able to order room service and get dinner but not in Fresh Salt. Something is a little wrong there but I'm glad you did enjoy your dinner. Andy Abels
