We went to the blue crab for dinner with the family very disappointing experience. My husband ordered the lobster ravioli and it was more like a lobster soup. The ravioli were floating in a sauce. The real issue was the steak. The piece of meat...More

We went to see a friend's band and I was actually afraid to order a drink that didn't come sealed in a bottle. The bar area is oddly configured and not a good venue for a band as there is no where to sit or...More

Very pleasant place to eat. We came at about 11:30 and wanted lunch, but they were still serving breakfast. They were very accommodating though and served us lunch. The lobster roll is one of the best I have ever had.

A little disappointed with this restaurant. I came across it by chance driving from Old Saybrook. I really needed some WiFi and some food so this should have been a means to satisfy both. While the atmosphere and seating was cozy enough, the waitress who...More

Six of us met here for dinner. Because we arrived when the restaurant first opened, we were told we had to order "off the menu" as they hadn't decided what specials to offer yet. Each of the three couples shared the Fennel Apple Salad and...More
