Restaurant Review: Old Salt. Written by Ms. Colby's 2nd grade class. Awesome!

Today I had the pleasure of being a guest speaker in my daughter’s 2nd grade classroom at Centre School in Hampton, NH. Ms. Colby, my daughter’s teacher, runs a program called “Write Around the Community” and parents are invited to talk about how they use writing in their work and live.

As the founder of SeacoastKidsCalendar, I write all the time! So I was excited to have the class help me write a restaurant review about the Old Salt in Hampton, NH. (Originally I had Chuck E. Cheese in mind but the majority of kids had been to Old Salt!)

To start our review, I asked them a bunch of questions and we took a bunch of notes. Using that information, we wrote the review as a team. And let me tell you, these kids really know their restaurants! They were SO EXCITED about writing this review and asked if I was going to post it on SKC? You bet!

Thanks to the parents for having such wonderful children, I was honestly humbled by how gracious, interested and thoughtful they were. Ms. Colby– you’re an amazing teacher, thank you for sharing this time with me! And kids…you wonderfully, inspiring, beautiful kids. You made my day, and probably my year. I hope you cultivate a life long love of writing like I have. You guys rock!

So here it is. If you’ve never been to the Old Salt, please enjoy this review. From the mouths of babes, literally.

When you walk in to Old Salt, to your right is the lounge and on the left is the buffet. You can eat inside or outside if the weather is nice. On the menu is popcorn, specials, Shirley Temples, lemonade, fish, mozzarella sticks, and the best of all, the chocolate fountain. They have a Haunted House during Halloween to sponsor Winnacunnet High School. For entertainment, they have comedy shows and parties. You will want to go again and again because the food is really good. If you would like more information, please visit
