“Good food, very noisy though”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

If you're looking for good pub grub and a cold beer during game time then this is the place for you. Personally I find the place way too noisy at times when they have all the TV's going at full volume, but that's just me. I really enjoy it there when it's quiet though!

“Not the place for steak”
Reviewed February 23, 2011

We visited Rocksalt in search of a great steak dinner, the menu items were on the expensive side, so we assumed the food would be terrific. The $27 ribeye was dry, the short ribs were tender and tasty, but served on top of a bed of soggy sweet potato fries. The fries should have be on the side, and they would have been perfect. The ribs were not served with a vegetable, and that just seemed stingy to me. The garlic mashed potatoes were great, as was the grilled Caesar salad. I think the key to this place is knowing what to order in advance. The drinks were very good.

“Not a pleasant experience”
Reviewed August 13, 2010

Bar itself is in a vintage hotel and very nice. When we arrived around 7 PM there was only one other group at a table. They were not eating and we should have been forewarned. Still our waiter was cheerful. We ordered beer. I asked to try the Rocksalt beer and was told that it had been replaced by Budweiser. The beer choices were very limited. My wife and I ordered dinner. The salmon I ordered was way overcooked and the potatoes were cold. I recommend you try somewhere else. If you have a family I would recommend somewhere outside the downtown area. Atmosphere was downgraded due to having to watch the drunks going in and out of the liquor store next door.
