Salt and Barrel is our FAVORITE restaurant. The food is always outstanding, the oysters and cocktails are to die for and the service with our favorite server, Chris, is always amazing! He will be missed while at school and we look forward to having him back to serve us come Summer!

It was a perfect meal with exceptional service. My husband said that was the best burger he has ever had on the Island. He is not a big fry guy but loved these thin fries. I loved my miso cod dish that was complex and filling. The toffee bread pudding was a perfect sweet treat to end the meal. Our server was exceptional and friendly throughout, one of the best we have had.

First of all, we would like to thank our server Vincent. Both times we've been dining he was very knowledgeable and helpful with our dining choices.
We also enjoyed very fresh and tasty variety of oysters, well prepared miso glazed cod, octopus and short ribs.
Thank you for the memorable and tasty dining experience!

Not one of our better experiences here. Drinks and oysters were very good but entrees were not good at all and dessert was average at best. Also it took entirely too long for our oysters and food to come out. Will not be returning anytime soon.

A good restaurant but the food is inconsistent. The same dish has tasted different 3 times.
I ordered a glass of chardonnay and was given sauvignon blanc. I didn't return it but didn't love it.
The service is a bit sleepy but nice.
We will be back though.

Sat at the bar since we were early for our reservation. Shared several kinds of oysters presented beautifully. They were great.
Enjoyed the restaurant week menu, I had tuna tartare, miso glazed cod & the apple-pear cobbler, all delicious.
My companion ordered the butternut squash soup but sent it back because it was too thick and not hot enough.
Things got better for her, she switched to the endive salad which was super, short ribs & chocolate chip pie all of which she enjoyed. Service with Eric at the bar and then our table server was very good. Will definitely return.

Wonderful restuarant and staff. The night we dined was restuarant week and even though the menu was limited the selections were wonderful. Their cocktail menu is second to none and the staff is so warm and friendly they make you feel like a member of the family.
