We stopped by here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The Happy Hour deals are really good, $5 wines and prosecco and lots of delicious food options too. The devilled eggs and fried chicken are very good indeed! My a la carte prime rib with mash potato was really excellent.

We had some family coming in from out of town and they love to go to Sunday brunch when they're here. Some friends had told us they had a great brunch here so we decided to try it. I made a reservation online through Open Table, which was really simple. We showed up at 10AM when they opened and were... More

We visited Salty Sow on a Friday evening. It had a loud, energetic atmosphere inside. The outdoor seating area seemed a bit more chill. There was a surprisingly large number of children there. The food was really good. The pork belly and the beef shoulder were delicious. The brussels sprouts side dish was tasty as well. I don't like deviled... More

First time visitor...will go back if I'm in the area again. Delicious truffled deviled eggs. Also had a small plate of scallops with a fennel salad and polenta. Delicious! A bit too loud to get a higher rating.

Went here after a long day of traveling. Had a very good grapefruit IPA (unsure who made it). I ate the ribeye tacos and they were very good - I would go back to get those. Other guest had fried chicken special- she said the chicken was just ok and the biscuits were good but were cold when they arrived.

Interesting menu. Started with the truffled deviled eggs as an appetizer which were good. For entrees people in our party tried the pork belly, chicken, and french dip. No complaints, all good with great comments on the brussel sprouts. If looking for a different dinner choice, this is a good one.

Great appetizers for starters. Love the pork belly with cheesy grits. For dessert we always have beignets which are out of sight. Good service

We were staying near the Salty Sow restaurant and looked forward to our short visit today, but were left feeling it was average. I ordered a draft beer that was nearly flat, and my wife was charged for the sampler of wine brought before the one she paid for. We were there during a busy Friday happy hour, and both... More
