Description: Named Best Waterfront Dining and Best Seafood by Connecticut Magazine in 2016, Fresh Salt serves seasonal and locally inspired meals. Our tables overlook the waters of the Connecticut River where the fresh river meets the salt of the Long Island Sound. It's a treasured and historic spot with a natural environment that is rich in life. Fresh Salt restaurant reflects that lively diversity: We have a raw bar, a seasonally varied menu, and offer as much as we can from the farms, brewers, cheese makers and other food enterprises that are springing up around our region. Fresh Salt delivers a dining experience that's comfortable and relaxed. Our staff is here to be of service to you, our kitchen stands ready with fresh ingredients, a deep wine cellar and carefully crafted fusions of foods and beverages that bring tastes together in delicious and new ways. We have tables by the fire, at the bar, and in season offer seating outdoors on the Fresh Salt Terrace. Awards include: - Best Brunch, Best Waterfront Dining, Best Seafood, and Best Hotel Dining from Connecticut Magazine, January 2016 - Named Upscale Restaurant of the Year by Connecticut Restaurant Association, December 2015

This restaurant has great harbor views. We had breakfast. The service this time was only ok. The food was good but pricy. I had been once before for lunch and I enjoyed the lunch much more and the service that day was better. The Inn itself is awesome.

We had dinner and 2 breakfasts there and everything we ordered was delicious. Even my simple egg white omelate with shitaki mushrooms, spinach and grape tomatoes were so flavorful!

Fresh Salt is named for the place the CT River meets Long Island Sound. We stopped there in Old Saybrook for lunch today and were thrilled with the setting on the water, the service and the food. Fantastic clam chowder was just the start of our delightful meal. Looking out on the harbor full of magnificent boats was fun as well.

We had a nice late light lunch here. The food was really delicious and the service was very friendly and efficient. We will definitely return when we are in the area again.

Had to send two meals back to be redone; restaurant was understaffed - long waits for food, drinks and refills.
