Have been going to Hampton Beach, NH for over 40 years & have never visited this restaurant before but saw an advertisement and decided to try it. There was an abundance of choices on the menu & what I ate was delicious! The drinks are also very good & would definitely go back again...our waitress was a gem!

I've been coming to Old Salt every time I've been coming up to Hampton Beach for the last four years. My first two visits were outstanding (which kept me coming back). Those two times I came on a Friday and they had all you can eat fish and chips which I took advantage of. I even purchased an Old Salt... More

We wanted a restaurant that had good seafood so we stopped here. I had the stuffed flounder and it was really good. The menu and the decor seem a little old school. If you are looking for new fresh style cuisine then this might not be your cup of tea. I like the old style heavy cream sauce cooking so... More

It was my first time being here this past 4th of July weekend and loved it. Our waiter was very nice. I enjoyed my chowder before my meal, then got the chicken parm which was very very good.

We had a large party here for a birthday party on a Saturday night, we had made a reservation and we got right in. Service was awesome...we brought our own cake and the staff cut and served it for us which was really nice! Food is excellent as always. Great place!

Had a visit from our son and daughter in law on Tuesday and took them out for lunch. We eat there often and have never been dissatisfied. There were many choices and I had my usual favorite, the Fish and Chips which never disappoint. Very enjoyable except for the fact that there was no room for dessert. Maybe next time.... More

We enjoy coming here a couple times during the Summer. There's nothing fancy, just what I'd call wholesome family dining. More or less what I grew up with in the 70's. As the name indicates, seafood is the theme and specialty, but they have a fairly balanced menu offering plenty of non-seafood options. Service is friendly and prices are moderate.... More
