In Short
The aptly named Salt Cellar is a maze of underground rooms, each dimly lit, wood-trimmed and filled with enough nautical paraphernalia to convince diners they're below deck on an old ship. Loyalists go for fresh seafood… Read Full Editorial

My Review by ronniej1634366455 via Citysearch on 1/18/2014

We had dinner there on Jan. 17th it was amazing. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. Our server Dawn was a delight. She recommended the halibut which two of us had. The other two persons had the scallops satue'd loved every…

A friend recommended this restaurant to by RobertM301 via Citysearch on 3/8/2012

A friend recommended this restaurant to me and I must say it was a good choice. The food is excellent, staff friendly and very clean. Well worth a visit.

Excellent Seafood by stephanie Peterson via Citysearch on 4/10/2011

After hearing favorable comments about the Salt Cellar we made reservations and went last night. Service was prompt and courteous in the bar and at our table. Although they carried a good selection of wine, the quality was subpar. …

Not Impressed by FoodieChick via Citysearch on 2/10/2011

I was really excited about this restaurant. My brother had mentioned it to me a while ago and I had high expectations. The ambiance of the place was great. An underground restaurant is a cool idea. \r \r However, the food wasn?t cooked…

The Salt Cellar by jmartinez0427 via Citysearch on 10/22/2010

Alright, so i was told by a family memeber that this was his favorite restaurant, so I decided to take my wife for a nice dinner. I should have went somewhere else.\r \r First off, we were laughed at by the lady greeting us and the lady…

I love this place by Thisplacerocks via Citysearch on 9/1/2010

We started off by making a reservation well in advance as they are busy most of the time from what I hear. We had another couple with us so that made 4. We sat at a great round table whee we could all talk. Nice!! The server told us about…

Great Sea Food in a hole in the middle of the desert!!! by James Echols via Citysearch on 6/19/2010

A nice lady bartender at the airport Crowne Plaza Hotel in Phoenix reccommended Salt Cellar when asked about seafood places around Phoenix. I have traveled a great deal around the world. This was however my first visit to Phoenix. My wife…

Best Seafood in AZ period! by Married2AF via Citysearch on 5/3/2010

Our waitress, Christina, was really friendly and very helpful! She suggested we start of with the Sauteed Shrimp San Remo and we weren't disappointed at all! It was one of the best things I have ever had! The sauce it is made with is so…

Terrible food by ozialien via Citysearch on 1/30/2010

I had heard how good it was. What a disappointment. Very expensive restaurant with food inferior to the corner fish and chip shop back home in Australia, or MT, CT, NY.\r \r The waitress was very good. But her support from the kitchen…

Fishlover#1 by Letseat via Citysearch on 10/10/2009

The Salt Cellar offers the best seafood in the entire valley. I should know, I eat seafood every chance I get. My husband and I dined at the Salt Cellar twice this month already (october 2009). We ordered the king crab legs and the shrimp…

Poor service and quality by Stomp via Citysearch on 9/6/2009

I went here w/ my family the first and ONLY time last night. The prices are high and the quality of service and food are poor.\r \r The hostess was extremely rude, commenting on our attire even though we were similarly dressed as other…

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! by LHawth via Citysearch on 2/12/2009

My boyfriend surprised me with taking me to the salt cellar for my birthday, since he knows that I LOVE seafood. I'm from the east coast and I miss all of the tasty roadside lobster shacks. I checked out their website and saw that it…

Favorite Seafood by Jennifer W via Insider Pages on 11/25/2008

The Salt Cellar, although kind of expensive, really is a favorite when it comes to seafood restaurants. The atmosphere alone is great--when you walk in, you immediately walk downstairs to the bar and restaurant. It is not a very large…

Best service and food EVER!!! by LadyHalle via Citysearch on 8/24/2008

I don't usually use this forum but after I dined at the Salt Cellar, I had to express my delight!!\r Not only is the food cooked to perfection, our server really made our night special. I have dined at every restaurant in the valley as I…

Need to be reworked. TIRED! by ldma via Citysearch on 7/24/2008

This at one time was the best seafood around. Now Red Lobster gives it a run for the money. The tired and worn out basement smells which is hard to get past while eatting.

Good Happy Hour by DavidLivi via Citysearch on 7/4/2008

My wife and I have only visited Salt Cellar during Happy Hour. While the regular prices are a little over our budget, the happy hour prices blew our minds. The oysters are only $1.25 apiece, which we always ask for, and we are both hooked…

Huge Disappointment!!! by FishLover1 via Citysearch on 6/28/2008

We have been going to the Salt Cellar for the past 35 years and have always experienced good food. After not being there for the past 5 years, we decided to give it a try this evening, and what a disappointment!!! For starters, the bread…

Nifty location, poor value by jlahorn via Citysearch on 6/23/2008

We (party of 2) visited on a Sunday at 6 PM, and the restaurant was busy but not packed. It is dim and perhaps a little dated, but still charming. We were originally seated under an air conditioning vent, but were promptly moved when we…

What all restaurants should strive for. Great atmosphere and the best seafood hands down! by FrankMouse via Citysearch on 5/19/2008

My wife and I like to do dinner out at least once on the weekends, and more often than not, we find ourselves unground at the cellar. The food is always perfect, albeit somewhat pricey, I never think twice if I want to return. The…

Great Seafood by Cathy P via Insider Pages on 5/15/2008

We like Salt Cellar for special occasions because it is a little overpriced. It's also a little hard to get into. But once you're there, you can have a Fat Tire beer while eating some of their awesome bread. After that, their clam…
