Only placed a carry out order for banana pudding but I did go inside to pick it up. The atmosphere is very pleasant as is the decor. The bartender was great! Honestly, the best banana pudding ever! They use pecan sandies instead of vanilla wafers.

The location is quaint; the facility isn't the fanciest; inside seating is minimum; however, our dinner was superb the service was great (once) we had someone assisting us... More

Really interesting restaurant. There is outside dining under an old oak tree and occ have live entertainment, a beautiful fish tank in the dining room to entertain the kids. Food is delicious and service is good too. We like the seafood salad plate and burgers but anything you get I expect will be good as well.

This is the place to go for their nightly specials! We went on 1 lb lobster night for $21. Had a great meal and got a $3 rum and coke! Overall they had many choices and I would go back! Very family friendly.

We have been coming down to the Litchfield area for years and years. I have always heard good things about Salt Water Creek, but have never tried it. I was beyond impressed. The restaurant has a nice appearance, but is very eclectic with decor and food. Our waiter could be a little overbearing at times, but was very knowledgeable and... More

They were busy, but no one was waiting We waited at the hostess table for at least five minutes before anyone greeted us. They offered us a table in the bar area and we... More
