We tried the early bird special when it was not too crowded. The waitress was friendly. This is a very good deal for the amount of food you get. I had the onion soup, beef tips with potatoes and asparagus, plus apple pie. The beef tips were delicious and the apple pie was wonderful. My husband had a salad, crab... More

I'd order it again. However the Salad came with (4) small, rubbery, tasteless pieces of chicken which I added to the order. The cost of the base Salad... More

I recently stopped in for a beer and dinner and thought that it has the potential to be better. They do have a good feel inside whether you are looking to catch a game or catch up with friends. They also have a good selection of beer to choose from. We had ordered the meatballs for an appetizer and they... More

We intended to go to the Old Salt Sunday Brunch, only to find out you need to make a reservation a week in advance. Discouraged, we resolved ourselves to a simple lunch, and chose the 401 Tavern, just down the street. Turns out they had Sunday Brunch specials and we both ordered the Lobster Eggs Benedict. I have had eggs... More

Very fun little place -- the owner went out of his way to see that everyone was happy. The BLT Mac and Cheese was terrific! Looking forward to visiting again.
