We had the Stadium Nachos with a beer while the football game was on. They were so big that the three of us couldn't finish it. It was soooo good. I wish I had more room. Best nachos ever!!

Hated the hotel, but the restaurant was nice. We had lunch here as well as the Sunday Brunch and had no complaints. The lunch menu offered burgers, shrimp, soups - even whole lobsters - well rounded. And the brunch provided anything and everything.

We stayed for one night and ate at The Old Salt Restaurant twice. We had lunch in the bar when we arrived, our server was really bubbly and ran a slick operation. Our food was good and we loved the atmosphere of the bar. We would have preferred to eat here in the evening but there was a quiz night... More
