After a day in the sun my family and I decided to stay in the hotel room instead of going to the Old Salt itself, so we ordered our food to go. The restaurant itself was beautiful and had a lot of old world charm....More

They use fresh, local seafood. And it's typically great. Regarding the shrimp, they are without a doubt frozen because the only native shrimp in these waters are tiny, and only available during late Fall and Winter.

I believe that they are pretty open about that. I'm sure they'd be ok with it, but to make sure, I'd phone them.
