No reservations on a Wednesday evening, very busy. We sat at the bar. Very engaging bartender/server (Karen). Great drinks, very good salad. My 'Bronzed' Swordfish (lightly blackened) was fantastic. 3/4" thick steak was cooked perfectly. My wife's cod was also great. Fun atmosphere.

Went to Saybrook Fish House after seeing a TV commerical. The food was really good, very generous portions, the bread basket had a nice selection of freshly baked breads.

Despite being busy (Good Friday), we had an excellent dinner. Steamers were fresh, bread was delicious, house-made salad dressing was outstanding. Lobster was really good quality (though you couldn't get larger than 1.75 lbs). Stuffed shrimp (apparently their best seller) were soooo good. Our server...More

I am not impressed with this restaurant. I have tried it a few times and it is either over cooked or just tasteless. I will say there salad is really good, nothing special but just very tasty. All in all I am not a fan

We are open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner with two exceptions. We are not open on Thanksgiving or Christmas. We think it is impratant for our staff to at least have those two special days to be with their family.
