“Local color”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Nice little outdoor dining spot directly on Cohasset Harbor. A little pricey, but the setting kind of justifies the prices. Good food,with little extra emphasis on New England seafood dishes like lobster rolls, fried clams, chowder etc. All seating is outdoors, and they are only open during the warmer weather from about May to October, but if you are in the area its a very pleaant place for lunch or dinner. Only warning is it gets buggy when the sun goes down, so be forewarned and maybe bring OFF.

“Outdoor dining at it's best!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

What better place to eat than sitting outside on Cohasset Harbor! Excellent seafood especially the TLT (Tuna, lettuce, tomato)! The menu has plenty to offer and the drinks are great!

“Great relaxation”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We ate the Olde Salt House several times with our stay at the Cohasset Harbor Inn for a wedding. We were able to eat both outside and inside with a wait for an outside table. Lobster rolls and clam chowder were excellent and service was great.

“Missing Lobster”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Have gone to this restaurant many times over the last 5 years. Food and service were always top notch. Went there this Sunday and ordered the same as usual. A salad with lobster and the lobster sandwich. The meal arrived and lo and behold both entrees seemed to be lacking the usual amount of lobster. I advised our waiter of this expecting a walkover from one of the managers. Nothing happened. Just wondering if this is a trend with this restaurant. Plan to go back and try again and will report the results.

“A perfect day on Cohasset Harbor”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

It doesn't get much better than sitting on the Olde Salt House patio watching the pleasure boats and fishing boats bob in the water while enjoying a delightful ocean breeze, a bottle of rose wine, tuna tartar appetizer ... and a lobster club sandwich! Oh, and the Tuna sandwich, Cohasset Lobster Roll and Diana Two Salads are all outstanding. The service is great, relaxed without being slow, and most of all friendly. It's a gem of a place to spend a lazy summer afternoon.
