Junction of Routes 67 & 10, Ephratah, NY - (518) 993-4412

Oh my goodness! Since moving from the Boston area to upstate NY five years ago, we have had a very hard time trying to find a restaurant that we like. I have gone to one or two in Utica and in my immediate area. They've been very good and we have returned to them on occasion. A while back, a good friend had recommended Saltsman's to us. So we tried it.

Wow! We were blown away by not only the food but the service, atmosphere, and affordability. The food is absolutely heavenly. They serve family-style and the choices on the menu are local favorites and seasonal fruits and vegetables. Can't go wrong there. Love the service and the historical feel. I just made reservations for tonight and I can't wait to see what's on the menu this week.

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.
