The Saltwater Bar and Restaurant in South Norwalk is known across the region for its New England-style seafood with an edge.

Their mission is simple, the owner says, "the very best in all that we, service, and location."

Foodies and Yelpers seem to agree and flock to the restaurant that seems vast, but welcoming when you walk in the door.

 "This is such a unique and fun restaurant and bar! The service was excellent too," said one Yelper.

Another added: "Just moved to SONO, and found this seafood place which was fantastic. Fish was perfectly cooked, over spinach and mashed potatoes. Well done, happy this place is here."

A glance at reviews, reveals some favorites seem to be the brunch, as well as the fresh fish, the octopus, and the mac & cheese lobster, and the drinks coming quickly out of the bar.

"Warm atmosphere, hospitable service, and delicious food. The restaurant is huge but feels homey," said another Yelper.

The menu offers a vast array of selections including everything from ceviche to lobster rolls to steaks, yep steaks.

"Saltwater has become my new favorite restaurant in South Norwalk," said a Yelper. "The seafood is the freshest around, and you really can't get better and more humble customer service and any other restaurant in this area."

So, if tuna tartare is calling your name or maybe a plate of fresh, lush oysters then give Saltwater a try.

Prices are moderate to high. Seating is plentiful and service is great. 

The restaurant is located at 128 Washington St.
