We stopped here on our way back from the Point Reyes Lighthouse. My daughter was hungry & I wanted to sample local oysters. Looks can be a bit deceiving; we walked through a busy covered deck area (think crab shack) into something of a tiny upscale restaurant. No tables open but the bar was free. Service was a little slow at first, until I realized everyone was awaiting more oysters. My husband & I shared a dozen oysters- excellent & redolent of the sea. We're Easterners & I find western oysters to have more substance than our oysters. I prefer my oysters straight, but the light citrus "sauce" served alongside was a nice compliment. He continued with Oyster & Sausage Gratin which was creamy and flavorful. I tried the Duck Rillettes- also quite tasty. I still can't figure out the Winter Compote served alongside but it added a tasty contrast to the duck. My daughter, not an oyster fan, had the Pork Loin served on polenta with brussel sprouts- lots of flavor here. And I must comment on the fact that she loved the brussel sprouts- a first. They were sweet without that cabbagey aftertaste. The wine list looked interesting, but we tried the North Shore Brewing Co. beers on tap and found them an excellent accompaniment for the meal. Saltwater may be a bit overpriced, but the food was first rate, the service good, and the ambience a nice combination of local & city folk. I would definitely return.
