Saltwater has a very low key atmosphere. The food is American contemporary. Excellent view of the lagoon. Decor is very relaxing. They have a new chef who is making a name for himself. Nice place for a special evening out.

We quite liked it. Given that they're closing in just a few days, they put out a very nice dinner and the waiter was great. Get in while you can.

We came on a Saturday night with no reservation. No problem! -have a seat at the bar, where one interacts with very cheerful and able staff, and observe the shucking ritual. The room is so appealing with high, high ceilings and a view of the...More
