I made a reservation weeks in advance for a private room for 13 people. I stressed that we were a group of old friends that wanted to mingle and could get loud so we wanted to be away from the crowd. I arrived early to find that they had put us in the room that we requested but there were... More

Six of us went to Saltwater Grill for Valentines Day 2017. AWFUL!! Two of us ordered the sole. It was tasteless and soaked in a white sticky thick sauce. It was like eating white paper. Really awful. The "roasted vegetables " were boiled and mushy. We requested baked potato rather than mashed and were told we could not have that.... More

Well prepared fresh food presented really well. Great service and nice ambiance, what's not to like. The seafood was fresh and the presentation was perfect. Really well done.

I had read very nice things about the Litchfield Salt Water Grille online, so last week my wife and I decided to make the half hour drive from our house to Litchfield to give it a try. All I can say is that I wish we'd made the trip sooner! The whole experience was terrific. The fish was among the... More

The food was wonderful, as was the service. We were a party of eight and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal: the duck was crispy, yet tender; the salmon was delicious;and the steak was prepared exactly to order. I look forward to a return visit.

The SWG certainly lived up to the expectations after reading all the positive reviews on line. The beer battered artichoke hearts and the very fresh fish made this an enjoyable dinner. The portions were very appropriate. We loved the rustic bar/dining area and will definitely return soon. Nice job SWG!!

Atmosphere and services are two things that are good about this restaurant. Still, one can't eat air. The food was Okay but very expensive. For four of us, without any drink, we pay an average of $33 per person. My steamed lobster was very under rated, though my mother in-law loved their grilled salmon. Still, about $33 per person is...

Had roasted beet salad which was fantastic, followed by seared tuns app. Plenty to eat! Tuna done perfectly BTW. My companions liked their dishes, too: shrimp cocktail, shrimp salad, clam chowder, crab cake ( although a little "doughy") Service was fine, but we were seated in an out of the way room where we're the only diners, so she had...

We arrived at the Resturant for lunch, some had chicken Marsala others had fish and some had egg plant. All were served with vegetables and they were all delicious For dessert we all had chocolate mousse. A very enjoyable meal. I would recommend this place as very good.
