“My Gal Sal Picks A Winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Good friends invited us to one of their very favorite mainstay restaurants and we were pretty excited, knowing what excellent cooks they themselves are. We were not disappointed. We both went for the Monday night special of filet medallions and were delighted ($12.95). One friend ordered spaghetti with meatballs which came loaded with shredded parmesan. The other got a large burger accompanied by excellent sweet potato fries. Our green beans were different and delicious, and the gargantuan baked potato was a meal in itself. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive. Its a pretty sure sign a place is good when you can see the server's pride and joy in their demeanor. The menu options were more than adequate and the prices were more than reasonable. Sal's is located in teensy Withrow, a burg north of Stillwater proper. We enjoyed the rural area and Sal's rustic charm, including the split log décor, stone fireplace and the casual atmosphere. Business was brisk and the overall experience was pleasing. I am looking forward to a return visit to this out of the way spot soon.

“Disappointing-4th visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Tried Sal's again yesterday, turkey /mashed potatoes was hot ( previous visits not so, food has been served cold ) .Green beans were soaked in mustard, missing the sprinkling of black sesame seeds. My Mom order fried chicken dinner....1st time ordering. Waitress indicated 1/2 of a chicken , mixed dark/white meat. It was only a mixture of 2 legs & 2 thighs, severely overcooked , it look like it was left over from lunch & reheated. I saw the one of cooks, walking around the bar several times, he had gloves on , so wondering if he changed his gloves when he went back into the kitchen ? > doubtful. I called & left message for manager to let him know about our experience, waiting to hear back....
Plus the music is too loud in the dining area, won't be returning.

“No great, but a tasty lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We met some friends here in Feb for lunch. We live close, but hadn't been here for a very long time, as the last time the food just wasn't very good. Since it had been so long, we agreed to try again. We're glad we did. I wouldn't say that it's gormet food, by any stretch of the imagination, but my Italian Chicken Bruchetta was very tasty. The large portion of chicken was moist, and the sauce, while certainly not made fresh, was pretty good. The "bruchetta" under the whole thing was pretty soggy, but it really wasn't a necessary component. The thing I really liked was that I had the option of substituting fruit instead of fries or other starch...the bread was quite enough starch for a meal. My husband had the chicken wild rice soup which was very thick and heavy. He said it was very tasty also. There were no other diners here for lunch, so at first we thought that might be a bad sign. As it turned out, we found it a nice surprise, and will go back again for dinner sometime.

“disappointed, slow service, cold food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Took 1 1/2 hours for food to arrive and then the two prime rib dinners were cold. The waitress was friendly and helpful, but the kitchen needs to step it up. Two visits in a row with cold food. We won't be returning.

“Hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We started out towards this place and the further into the country we got the more we felt like we'd punched the address into our GPS wrong. I figured so far in the sticks there would be 6 people and 3 staff members. The bar and dining room were 2/3 full and it was the best burger I've had in a long time. TOTALLY worth the drive out, a definite do not miss if you're near Stillwater!
