Chef / General Manager 

Chef Chris Pierce has been with Salt Wharf from day one and has been the visionary behind our unique modern American menu leveraging high-quality, fresh ingredients from local fishermen and farmers from midcoast Maine.

His Maine experience runs deep and was formed through years in Portland and the midcoast running kitchen and BOH operations for Davinci’s in Lewiston, Sebasco Resort in Phippsburg and Old Port Sea Grill in Portland. He grew up and began his career in Colorado — mainly in Boulder — where he worked at Q’s restaurant in the historic Boulderado Hotel and also was a partner/chef at Magnolia Steak & Seafood.
