Used to be a great place for fried clams, but they are no longer in business. Their fish and chips were also a favorite too.

The Salt Water Cowboy restaurant appears to be out of business. The doors are locked, no sign of occupancy, the restaurant sign has been taken down, and the phone number has been disconnected. I'm afraid its Boot Hill for this cowboy. RIP.

Jennifer, could care less about her employees. She was training a new girl, very sweet, she was great with our two children, she showed them lobsters from the tank, and showed them the difference between a male and female lobster; she taught me as well....More

Want fresh seafood at a reasonable price try "The Saltwater Cowboy". Besides the local grocery stores in Rutland The Saltwater Cowboy really fits the bill. The variety is there and the staff is knowledgable and more than willing to answer all your questions.

The lobster bisque was a great treat, but the lobster dinner was over priced. $28.95 for a lobster that was maybe a pound. Very disappointing.

Friendly counter service and super-fresh seafood. This place is an inland New England Clam Shack with all the expected offerings...and a great market if you prefer to cook at home. Highly recommend when you need your fish & chip fix.

Very casual atmosphere, nothing special inside, but the service is very good, and the seafood is prepared and cooked fresh. Nothing better within a 50 mile radius for fresh seafood!

We've enjoyed their food many times, especially their fish and chips and fried clams. However, we recently tried their lobster mac & cheese and found it had too many herbs and too many bread crumbs, and was really too thick. We've had mac and cheese...More
