Brewery
"Mammoths & saber-tooth tigers once roamed these lands in search of their rich salts. Paleo-Indians hunted, farmed and raised families here because of the salt springs. Early settlers named their town Saline after the salt springs, and now in this stunning 118-year-old former church, so does this brewery.

Salt Springs Brewery offers lovingly crafted & locally sourced food, true-to-style ales, wine & cider. Located in the heart of Saline, complete with an outdoor Biergarten and main dining room filled with the original stained from 1899, Salt Springs Brewery will quench your thirst and nourish your soul."

PLEASE TAKE NOTE : Our Kitchen closes 30 minutes prior to our stated closing time for that day. Last call for drinks is our stated closing time for that day.

This was on our to-try list for a while, and expectations were high. The service was excellent and the food was great. Standards like pizza or pork Schnitzel and creative experiments like the deep fried Brussels sprouts were equally inspired. We would have never tried those Brussels sprouts but the waiter was enthusiastic and now we know why. We'll be returning many times, I think.

We enjoyed our dinner here. We ordered a pizza off the specials menu, a sandwich, and the sourdough bread basket to start. I was a little surprised to see the bread was not served warm -- especially considering there was a $4 charge for bread. The Raging Mammoth sandwich was delicious -- this sandwich is served cold, which is fine, but it was a surprise to us when we received it. Noting it on the menu would save the shock! I'd come back and order these again... they just didn't come out as I was expecting.

We stopped for Valentine’s and had a wonderful meal! Having celiac did limit the menu some but I didn’t feel left out like some places I’ve been. The truffles fries were AMAZING! My daughter got the smoked Mac n cheese and everyone thought it looked like the best meal ever. Overall I’d highly recommend to anyone this cute little place!

Food we ordered was over cooked for 3 of the 4 dishes. We ordered the pork, both in the pulled sandwich and the salt springs pork schnitzel. We expected better. The service was very good. Waitress was attentive. The other waitstaff was very good as well.

I had the Market Fish, wild caught Coho Salmon on top of brocolini and fingerling potatoes with a Michigan cherry butter. It was delicious, I also had the heavenly hefenwiesen beer, and a cranberry hefenwiesen, the latter I enjoyed more. Overall the food was great and the beer good and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

Don’t order specials. Stick to comfort food/burgers at this restaurant and you will be fine. I got salmon with asparagus and potatoes. The salmon was awful, clearly not fresh despite the menus statement to the contrary, the salmon was dry and over cooked and so was the asparagus. Asparagus was stringy and mushy. Not what I expect for a $25 special. Not impressed. I’ve eaten here other times and gotten burgers/sandwiches which were good but they can’t do gourmet.

I love Salt Springs Brewery. I've been here about 5 times. My only advice to newcomers would be to order anything but the steak. Unfortunately it is overpriced and tough. The rest of their menu is hard to compete with. We were offered a new steak and free desert with our bad experience.

This was my second visit, more for those in my group. Our server, Feida, was amazing. She offered recommendations and was extremely attentive to our overall dining needs. On my first visit Jeff took amazing care of us as well. I hope to dine again soon, would love to meet the owner. The manner in which he has fashioned this establishment is beautiful and the history of the building is still very much present. Five star/gold crown establishment!!

We had reservations and arrived 20 min early. First seating attempt was to put us upstairs in a small room with another large, private party. We refused this and we seated downstairs with a much nicer ambiance. Our server was very accommodating, suggesting a taste of possible beers which were nice. The pork loin dish with German potatoe salad and sauerkraut was outstanding. Would not recommend the blueberry buckle dessert--far too dry. Overall a really good meal with good service, but dessert is not the forte of this venue.

The food was very good but the service was lacking. 3 of us ordered soup and after a long time period we had to ask the waitress to bring it. She stated she did not realize it was to be brought prior to the meal. From the time we ordered it took 50 min. for the main course to be served. Fortunately it was a group of 5 guys who had not seen each other in a year so the time did not matter. The manager did come over and apologize.

This is an amazing brewhouse located in an old church in Downtown Saline. I drive over 20miles for their brunch and dinners because it is worth it. Making the reservation simply for two was not a problem. Only thing to know, dinner specials do not begin until 6pm. We learned hard way and they looked delicious, oh well plan on going back in Jan. We were provided with a xmas gift from them...a surprise coupon. How nice.

Adam (host) was rude to us. We had reservations and he refused to sit us at one of the many open reserved tables. We waited 20 minutes and then he sat us at one of the open reserved tables. We watched him seat multiple groups of middle-aged folks, who got there after us, before ever seating us. As a group of 24 year olds, it seemed incredibly ageist.

The food was incredible, but did discriminate against some younger folks.

Went to Salt Springs for lunch with co-workers. Showed up right when they opened at 11:30 am. We were seated promptly. The server took our order knowing we were due back at the office in less than an hour. The food was on the table a few short minutes later and was delicious. I will definitely go back when I have more time to enjoy some brew and relax with family and friends.

A friend and I had dinner at Salt Springs Brewery before going to a movie. Our meal was so delicious! We kept telling our attentive server that we'd never be able to finish all three courses, but we did! And enjoyed the gelato for dessert - the salted caramel was amazing. We each said we could have just enjoyed the roasted brussel sprouts as a meal on its own as well as the Michigan salad. Our pizza was also excellent. My friend was there for the first time and said it was her new favorite!

I've eaten here many times before and loved it but this last time was disappointing. I brought my family for brunch on the last day they were in town visiting, and we waited over an hour and a half for the food. The waitress said the kitchen was short staffed, but the wait was ridiculous and many tables who came in after us got their food before us. When the food finally did arrive, everything was cold. The brussel sprouts were under cooked, the eggs were overcooked, they messed up my mother's order and didn't bring the side of potatoes it was supposed to come with, one of her pieces of toast was burnt on the edges and not toasted at all in the center, the other piece was simply not toasted at all...Overall between the wait and all the mistakes and issues with the food the experience was extremely disappointing. We were also kind of shocked that given the unusually sub par experience they didn't offer any reparative measures. I wanted to say something but my family was too polite to complain. It was a bummer all around, usually the food and service here are stellar but this last time with my family in town everything was off.

Salt Springs Brewery is one of our best area restaurants. Ambience is classy and food is original and good. Love the Brussels sprouts and can't keep myself from ordering them every single time. If you are hoping for a quiet conversation and it's game night, however, this is probably not the place.
