Nina Compton and Larry Miller’s second restaurant (they also have award-winning Compère Lapin), Bywater’s offers the freshest ingredients from local farms, fisherman, and vendors. The dining room has temporarily transformed into a collection of private, outdoor dining yurts—a happy solution to Covid-19 precautions. No one’s complaining and everyone’s having fun! The local snapper is my favorite.
Bywater American Bistro is an American neighborhood restaurant. To us, it’s a place you come because you’re already friends of ours, or you soon will be. A casual energetic place with yummy food, authentic hospitality, great libations and friendly faces. We’re cooking ingredient driven food where inspiration comes from our personal experiences or one of the many cultures represented in our area, past and present. Our cooking is also inspired by small local farms, using ingredients that are seasonal and raised or caught with care.
