Saltsman's Hotel

Junction of Routes 67 & 10, Ephratah, NY - (518) 993-4412
Posted By Sharon Ernst on 3/20/2007 7:00:00 PM
Saltsman's Hotel has always been a favorite stop. Before dinner it is customary to stop in the bar for one of the best manhattans or martinis you will ever have, served by a friendly bartender who always seems to remember you even if you haven't been there for awhile.

The dining rooms' ambiance remains the same; the floors aren't quite level, the chairs might rock a bit, the pictures on the walls, they all invite you to a wonderful dining experience.

The vegetables are all served family style. You may start off your meal with tomato juice or a soup of the day; a relish tray is also provided. My favorite has always been their pork chops, but I have never heard a complaint about any item on their menu. Most of their vegetables are grown in their own garden, and the desserts are homemade.

If you like to enjoy a bit of history as well as a good meal , I highly recommend Saltsman's Hotel.

We've never seen milkweed served in any other restaurant.  Not at all healthfoody in flavor, we think milkweed as prepared at Saltsman's makes the perfect springtime dish.

The long dining room is one of many rooms at the restaurant.
