“Decent choise for porc”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

If you are tired of all the steaks and burgers, jump into the Salty Pig for a bite of porc. Nothing fancy, but worth the money!

“Must go here no matter what”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

The Salty Pig is one of the best restaurants we've ever been to. The meats and cheeses are so flavorful. There are plenty of choices and they are all delicious. I highly recommend the prosciutto or pork belly, goat cheese and fig jam or olives. It's just the right amount of food. The atmosphere is great, the staff are great and helpful and the food is undeniably irresistible. I wish we had a place like this back home. Highly recommend going here!

“Lively atmosphere, beer, and great food”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

This is a great place to go later in the night for a small bite to eat and some great beer! There is a wide selection of brews to choose from. The menu is limited but with very good choices. The pizzas are great and there is a plethora of meats and cheeses to make your own platter with. The atmosphere is fun and young. This is not the place to have a nice "sit-down" meal together; it's a livelier place that can get a bit noisy. Overall a fun place though!

“Come here if you care about beer - and great food”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

The Salty Pig has a fantastic menu, offering both a modular approach to creating sharable platters of fine local and international cheeses, interesting cold cuts and condiments and featuring fine entree options.

The menu is feature-rich without being endless.

We enjoyed an assortment of sharing platters along with several fine draft beers - the mix of local, regional and international was just right for every palette. The food was outstanding, with all parts of the pig, and other animals, well represented.

I also had an excellent pasta dish (a house made cavatelli), which thankfully was available in half portions. Pizzas were also on offer - they looked delicious, but there is a limit to how much I could eat in one evening.

Attention to presentation and service was impeccable. And the vibe was fun.

“Charcuterie piggy yumminess”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

We've eaten here a few times for brunch, and the food is great - mostly pork but a few other options for non pork eaters. We had a board with a selection of meats, cheeses, and accompaniments as well as splitting a couple of mains and pastry. Altogether a delicious combination with appropriate servings of the meats and cheeses for sharing.
