Great place for lunch or dinner. Choose either the downstairs pub atmosphere or the upstairs dining room. Wonderful salads, sandwiches and entrees! The best fried onion rings and great Reuben sandwiches. Don't forget the specials menu also!

I LOVE their French onion soup. And they have the best bloody mary's. All the food is really good and portions are ample. They are always busy for good reason.

After a long day of working in the ether of the interwebs, met up with my lady and new friends for a lovely evening. The service was impeccable, even though we got there a bit early and hit the tail end of the Silver Special Service. Honestly, I had one of the best Moscow Mules that I have had to... More

My wife and I were in Old Saybrook, so we decided to have lunch here. She had the crab cake sandwich and she said it was delicious! I had the omelette of the day, with a gluten free roll, and mine was outstanding. You can order some sandwiches with a gluten free roll too.

I stopped into Penny Lane Pub & Restaurant for some soup while in town on business, and the French onion soup was wonderful! I also got some steamed spinach as a side, and that was good (though perhaps a bit salty for my taste). Everyone else in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying themselves, it was a very bright, clean... More

We stopped in on a cold night for a bite and were immediately welcomed by the warm atmosphere.The menu had lots of choices and the food was delicious. They also had several craft beers on draft. Our server was efficient and friendly and the food arrived hot and delicious.

Penny Lane Pub looks like just about any "pub" restaurant, with dark wood, cozy booths and a lively bar. I am not a fan of classic Pub food, fried everything laden with carbs. However, we have been coming here for years and are never disappointed, it is a very good restaurant with great food. The service is spot on and... More
