Congratulations, you and your husband are officially internet trolls. Your husband was such an absolutely awful person with his dishonest, petty and slanderous review (that has since been removed as Yelp is good at spotting fraud) that I responded to his review in kind and...More

My husband and I ate here to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The food was excellent and the prices reasonable. I highly recommend the Salt Box if you are looking for a great meal in a nice atmosphere.
