Saltwater Grille

Located right on the water with outdoor seating, this seafood restaurant has one of the best views of a Stamford sunset, and easily reminds you why the area was originally a destination spot for wealthy later 19th and 20th century New Yorkers who spent their summers in Shippan houses by the shore. Its attractive location and closeness to many Stamford offices makes Saltwater Grille a popular lunch, dinner and cocktail venue, and a great place to throw a party. This two-story eatery, where the Rusty Scupper, Beacon, and Shore House thrived and died, has been reinvented by its newest owners and is designed with more style than most local restaurants can boast. In other words, Saltwater Grille is definitely the place to go if you’re looking for a scene, and is usually fairly crowded, though reservations are not necessary. It is welcoming to families, but generally appeals to a younger preppy-cool 20s and 30s crowd filled with both singles and couples.

Saltwater Grille is a young restaurant in the process of finding its niche, but nevertheless, it’s sure to be a big hit during the dog days of summer. Go for the view, the drinks, and the cool crowd, and forget what your mother told you – go straight for the breadbasket.

Ann, having a problem finding mapquest directions. See above map. Basically:

Go to Canal Street (where Eclisse is), make a right on Jefferson, make a right on Magee Ave; right on Harbor Drive.

There is a chance of showers after dark tonight. I know you don’t want to drive in the rain so if you want to make it another time, let me know.

Fantastic views, nicely appointed, perfect spot on a warm summer night. Open, airy and modern decor work well while the outside seating is a bit bunched-up. Like most busy “happening” places
it can take a bit longer than usual to get food…. so plan to wait and enjoy the ambience while catching up with old friends.

by far the best food in stamford! We heard that they recently changed chefs and it is definately a change for the better. The manager told us that the new chef was from g/r/a/n/d, and a couple of great and very well respected NY restaurants.
Me and my wife ate there last night and all we talk about is the risotto! Crab and Wild mushroom risotto with a soy and vanilla bean foam. I know the combination sounds “out there” but everything just goes really well together. We then had the halibut with an olive puree and fennel and grapefruit salad that just explodes with flavor. And my wife had the Salmon which was AMAZING! We ordered the smores dessert which came with a cool tiny root beer float that just brought me back to when i was a kid. The food is great and i will definately dine there again.
