I have never had a bad meal here. Everything is superbly cooked - the oysters I had last night were sweet and tasted as if they had just come out of the water, the soft shell crab was cooked to perfection. The piece de resistance is the dessert: salted vanilla ice-cream with caramel sauce. Definitely save room for that -... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a resident and wow we're not disappointed! The raw oysters and clams were great and the main courses very tasty. Get a table by the window and you'll have a great location for a romantic meal. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Saltwater has been one of our go-to places since it opened a few years ago. The atmosphere is lively and friendly, the service is good and the food is always very nice. Not much more to say than that - not much more one can ask of a restaurant, especially one in a resort community that is only open a... More

Everything about The Saltwater was delightful! The view was wonderful, staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious! Everything was prepared, seasoned and presented perfectly! This place is a gem - and I'm happy it was our choice for my birthday dinner!

From parking ease to decor/ambience to menu/wine selections to attentive service to the variety and excellent presentation of the menu choices, Saltwater is ultimate stars, in my book. Sitting and enjoying the beautiful and serene water view allows you to feel that you have escaped to pure pleasure.

The daughter of a friend used Saltwater for a wedding reception. The shrimp, canape's and hors d'ourves were the best I have ever eaten. The wait staff handled the crowd with aplomb and the drinks were found abundant by all.

If you love seafood you will love Saltwater! Lovely restaurant with a great view over the water. Scallops were out of this world.

Food was great, service was impeccable, would highly recommend it. Caesar salad was a bit spicy, but good. Try the salt water ice cream for desert.

I don't review and give back enough - but do when I can. We come to MV every year - this has been a new favorite for a few of them now and they continue to out do themselves. We had the lobster bisque which was honestly the best anywhere I've ever had - obviously made from scratch - confirmed... More

The only reason this isn't 5 stars is because of the expense/value proposition. The food was delicious. Started with the arugula salad, which was actually enough for 2 people. Both of our entrees (scallops and swordfish) were delicious. The portions were satisfying, but nothing left over to take home. The desert we ordered, Sea Salt Ice Cream, was quite good.... More
