Or eat a grilled burger at a picnic table on a warm summer evening? Good food combined with a hefty dose of the outdoors just makes food taste better.

    I think if you look at the CTbites list of places you will see restaurants offering a wide range of prices. Overtons is a good example of an inexpensive location overlooking the water and there are several places that serve pizzas, meatballs and small plates.
