There is no better way to spend a summer  afternoon than at a lovely restaurant on the water. Salt on the Water, in the Whaleneck Marine Center in Merrick, describes itself as a “casual waterfront escape.” We think it is a perfect description. 

Valet parking is available. Even though the parking lot is gravel, you are able to pull up very close to the entrance. A lovely, covered, lounge area is available to the left if you need to wait for others to arrive, or while waiting for your table. We had made a reservation, which was honored as soon as we entered. There is indoor dining, with a full-height bar, as well as lots of outdoor dining on their large, wooden deck and along their “pier.” Tables are all well spaced making navigation easy. All of the chairs have arms. Although not needed today, we made note of the many heat lamps on the deck. Something to remember when the weather is a bit cooler. We had a wonderful table that made us feel like we were on the dock. It was delightful to look at the boats in the marina as well as those entering the Great South Bay.

Our server couldn’t have been nicer. She was very attentive to our needs and wants, checking to make sure that everything was to our liking.  Fish tacos, a Poke Bowl and hamburgers were all enjoyable. All in all, we couldn’t have asked for more – good food with good service in a lovely setting on a beautiful afternoon!

There are three restrooms, one multi-stall restroom, designated for women,  has no accessible stall. The one  designated for men, is not accessible either. The single-occupancy restroom, although a decent size, is not accessible either.  Happily, it does have a baby-changing station.

As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, when planning a visit, to “know more before you go,” to have the best experience possible.
