You won't be disappointed by SALT! We dined here for dinner and breakfast and I look forward to other meals during our stay. I'd certainly come here even if I wasn't residing in the hotel, a short ride from Portsmouth and not far for Portland....More

Food is ok but does not justify the price. Service was very poor and wine list is ridiculously priced. Does have potential if kitchen and wait staff could work together as a team

It's about 15 minutes or so. It's also not too far from the Maine border.

We were able to get into the dining area without one, but it is not a large place, and we came in after the peak lunch hour. I would recommend calling ahead.
