Loved the atmosphere, was seated right away with reservations on a Saturday evening. Very friendly staff. I ordered the warm lobster roll with butter for dipping. Average at best. If it wasn't for the butter to dip the lobster in there would be no flavor at all. Tasted like frozen lobster meat. Some pieces very chewy. If in the area... More

Very popular eating spot. When company comes to town we enjoy dining here. In my opinion this restaurant is not wheelchair friendly. Narrow pathways and always crowded

Our meals were very tasty. The server, Jayne, was outstanding. She offered good advice about the menu, and came by several times to see if we needed anything. If you like Manhattan cocktails get one here: large, made with rye not bourbon. My only criticism is that their large parking lot was crowded with cars on a Wednesday evening. Another... More

I never look for "chain restaurants" when on vacation. As a result, while bedding down for the night in Hampton, NH, we came across The Old Salt Restaurant. It must have been the two lobsters for $20.00 that caught my attention! There is ample parking. The garden in front of the restaurant and adjacent Inn was beautiful and had mood... More

My husband and I went to The Old Salt this past Sunday evening. He had been many times before and I have never been. We live nearby now so we thought, why not? We were seated immediately and given the option of the outside patio or inside (it was a hot day so we opted for the AC inside). We... More

We have been to this restaurant many times for both Lunch and Dinner and we have never been disappointed. Most of the visits we brought people who had never been there and they were equally pleased with the food and service.

If you want to get away from subpar food on the strip, this is the place to go! Great menu selection. Even broiled our daughters shrimp instead of frying due to sensitivity to fried food! We all enjoyed the decor, atmosphere, and food! Great prices, great food!
