    Great atmosphere, on the less expensive side, fast service, and good food - had eggs with thick cut bacon. Tucked away in Fidi, will go again for lunch and drinks!

    I like the bar but it was a little loud when I went. The 3 dudes talking really loudly at the bar was not pleasant. Drinks were decent.

    Went on a Sunday and there was no table service for dinner, which sucked. However the food was delicious and affordable. Definitely upgrade from salad to mac and cheese if you get a sandwich.

    The Bitches say: B-. Fresh Salt is a good neighborhood spot downtown. Both the fare and ambiance are comfortable and straightforward, but sometimes a low key brunch is all you crave on a weekend! Read more
