How do I contact lost and found?

Call our main phone number 505-750-YARD (9273).

Can I make a reservation?

Both of our locations hold a LOT of people and have a ton of large community tables, so for groups less than 10, we don’t take formal group reservations. If you’re bringing your crew of 8 or more, contact us to rent a private cabana! We also host amazing private parties and corporate events.

Where do I park?

We have plenty of parking at The Salt Yard WEST.

Do you charge a cover?

On Friday and Saturday nights, the cover is $10 beginning at 9pm. During peak hours, we offer an  express VIP line for an additional cost; it’s open to any guests. During some special events, the cover charge and time may change.

Do you allow animals?

Yes, we allow furry friends on the patios and have a soft spot for black dogs. Staff reserves the right to ask any animals, service or otherwise, to leave based on the safety of the animal and guests for crowds, noise or other.

How do I purchase a gift card?

Shop SALTY! We have gift cards and lots of SALT YARD swag online and at both locations! Just ask your server, host or manager for assistance.

What security precautions do you take?

We take the safety and security of our guests very seriously. We employ a third-party security team, we check IDs, and we use metal detectors/wands during weekend peak hours. If you are concerned at any time while visiting one of our locations, please see a member of our staff or security for assistance. The Salt Yard is committed to creating a fun, salty, and safe environment for all of our guests.
