Salt Factory Pub has locations in downtown Alpharetta, Roswell, and Woodstock. Salt Factory was even featured on the television show Meat & Potatoes on the Food Network.
The dark wood interior with plush leather booths and chairs contrast with British pub-inspired lights with large, framed mirrors lining the walls.
It’s a tough decision to choose what to drink when you consider the fantastic beer and bourbon list Salt Factory has. But wait, there’s more. There’s some fantastic cocktails too. My first was the F&H Mule which was light and refreshing.
You could totally fill up by having a selection of oysters and charcuterie. But save that for a separate visit. Start with the lettuce beef wraps and crispy shrimp. The beef wraps are coated in a soy chili sauce and are topped with verdant basil and cilantro. Another starter not to miss at Salt Factory is the crispy shrimp with sweet chili vinaigrette and topped with charred carrots.
From here, you could totally make a meal of the mussels. The broth by itself is the perfect thing to warm you up on a cold fall day. However, meats are really the star of the show here. Pictured at the very top is the 10 Grand Burger. It’s available after 10 pm only and is just $10. It is a double patty topped with Gruyere and mushrooms. Ever since having it, I crave that burger on the regular.
Another highlight is Salt Factory’s shepherd’s pie. The savory dish is prepared with lamb. This dish was specifically featured on the Food Network show mentioned above. After having several appetizers, I barely made a dent in this dish. The good thing is, it warms up nicely the next day for another meal.
On another visit, I tried two different entrees, the Blood Orange Salmon, which wasn’t the best, but the London Broil certainly was. Aged 37 days, the beef is incredibly tender and flavorful. Plus, it is served with huge onion rings.
I know I always say save room for dessert, don’t I? I don’t really have dessert at home but when I go out I almost always do. Though I’m not usually a huge fan of bread pudding, I love Salt Factory’s. The cold vanilla bean ice cream slowly melts in the cast iron pot with the warm gooey bread pudding. And those berries on top are lovely!
