Disappointed – My husband and I went for our one year anniversary. The restaurant itself was very unique, with wooden plank walls and soft lighting. However, our meals left something to be desired. The food was only mediocre and cold and our service was not on par with the price.
We waited forty minutes before even being served our salad. Our waitress never returned with items which we requested and only stopped at the table twice during the entire visit. Our glasses sat empty after the initial filling. In fact she seemed to be annoyed when we asked for anything.
I love this place for the awesome Maine Lobster! It never disappoints!
Salt Cellar Review – Visit in April 2003. Here is the review.
Service was the usual above average, but food quality has since been degraded. I had the Ahi Tuna pasta but the vegtables and pasta overwelmed the dish and which had a bland taste at best. The tuna "should" have been the primary taste of the dish.
My wife had the scallops which also tasted bland. Its like the chef just wanted to get the dish to the table without even thinking of a presentation or ambience.
Bad skills if this is the main chef for the restaurant. I can understand if one main entree is bad, but two is untolerable. These meals were $20 and $22 respectively.
Seemed like the wait staff was more involved with serving the larger group table who were pouring $$$ in wine selections.
Great Food & Service – The food and service were absolutely fabulous. In many restaurants, the servers bring out our next course before you've had a chance to enjoy your current one, but not at the Cellar. The server was courteous and let us enjoy our lovely dinner, without feeling pressure to "speed-it-up." Also, the baked stuffed lobster was perfect, and the cajun sea bass was to die for.
Yes Fish in the Desert – The Salt Cellar is a MUST visit for all seafood lovers. In Arizona GREAT seafood is hard to find, and really fresh seafood near impossible to get. Not at the Salt Cellar. The seafood is fresh, the menu offers great selection and the service is outstanding. Prices reflect the cost to maintain a fresh connection to the sea but worth every dollar.
Sometimes good sometimes bad – I have been to the restaurant to eat many times, usually I make my selection from the bar menu. The atmosphere and service was allways good. However I went there for my birthday and ate in the dinning room. Nearly every ordered was terrible. When the fresh (from tank) lobster came out it was cooked terribly the waitress even said that it was not right. They took it back to the kitchen. It came back burnt and just as bad if not worse than the first time. My partners meal was eaten and cleared away before I had started mine. To make it worse the staff looked down on you because there cooks messed the meal. I was totally disgusted with the service and quality of food at the restaurant that night. As a result I will recommend to all I know never to go to this restaurant again.
GRRREEAT FOOOOD! – Want to impress your date, Salt Cellar is the place to go, Great Seafood! Great Service
Wished Southern Indiana Had this Restaurant
