My husband and I visited on a Wednesday night about 7 PM. Andy, the owner cheerfully greeted us at the door and offered us our choice of indoor or patio tables, lively or quiet room to suite our mood. They have 5 dining rooms, all equally pleasant, to choose from and a wine loft. The drink menu had lots of... More

Wonderful service and reasonable prices during happy hour. The food and drink choices that qualified for the happy hour prices were plenty. Both food and drinks were served quickly to all six of us in our party and all were very delicious. Will go back again.

A large place with a lot of character and New England charm. The menu is what you would expect with a few nice twists (cucumber sesame salad) and a few interesting misses (cumin seasoned french fries.) Go there to enjoy the cozy bar or the patio and an impressive wine list but stay away from the specialty cocktails.

I dine all over the state and had one of the best overall experiences at LSG. First, Andy, the owner came to our table (sat at the bat) and introduced himself. We came to take advantage of a coupon offering a free glass of house wine. He honored that and my shelf brand chardonnay. After some light conversation dinner was... More

Salt Water Grille is about half a mile from "downtown" historic Litchfield, which means that it is usually not crowded with tourists. However, it is popular with locals who know how to avoid the crowds in the downtown area. The menu obviously focuses on seafood, but meat and fowl eaters will not be disappointed. There is outside dining on the... More

I've eaten here four times over the years and my most recent visits show that it's improved with new management. It has an open layout with an attractive decor. Worthy of a nice dining experience.
