Why It's Waterfront Worthy: The boats. The deck. The cocktails. The view. What began as a clam shack in 1999 has blossomed into a full-service restaurant where folks linger on the outdoor deck and sip appropriately named dockside cocktails such as Shipwreck, ‘Tex’ on the Beach and The Motorboat. The bar has a walk-up window with stools outside. Since it's at a marina located at the mouth of the Norwalk River, there are gorgeous sunsets to view as well as plenty of boats to ogle over. Every September the marina is the scene of the Norwalk International In-Water Boat Show, which draws crafts of every kind, from 8-foot inflatables up to 74-foot yachts.
Enjoy The View: 52 Calf Pasture Beach Road, Norwalk, (203) 866-4177; www.sunsetgrill.net .
