“Best Fried Clams that I have ever had!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Was in Hampton on a cloudy cold September Monday and decided that the best way to spend it was to find a good place to eat. It was after season so the only people around were the old locals. It was suggested that we try "Salts" in Hampton Center and we are glad that we did.
We started with some excellent thick and creamy clam chowder which was only made better by some hot crusty french rolls with maple butter. Yummy ;-)
We both got clams and they were tiny and tender and fried in a light batter. Best that I have ever had and the portion was perfect. The fries were pretty good too. The coleslaw was worth eating.
Wish I had room for dessert but we were full!
Our waitress was experienced, pleasant and honest. She recommended the clams and she was right on.

“Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Was there for the Easter Brunch and it was great. I don't like buffet's but this was really good. I would give it a 5 but the seating where we were was not good.

“Great Sunday Brunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Took the grand kids here for Sunday brunch on 9/2. The selection of food was incredible! omelet station, Waffle station, crepe station, roast beef/turkey station. The usual breakfast eggs, eggs benedict, bacon, etc.. The lunch section was great with stuffed pork, haddock, pork chops.. And the kids loved the chocolate fountain with fruit, etc..

Pricey but not too expensive. I've seen these sunday brunches higher. I highly recommend it.

“My Gram's favorite lunch spot.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Some really nice service touches and the menu is incredibly varied. My gram-ma loves going out to eat and when we take the great-grand kids there's something for every one.

“Dinner was good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

The restaurant has dated fixtures/finishes, but our lobster dinners were good. The lobster was small, but cooked perfectly. We shared a ridiculously enormous brownie sundae (gluten-free) and could only eat a couple of bites of this very rich dessert.
