This is one of the greatest restaurants I’ve ever been to. Amazing view, and even better food. The service was extremely high end, and everything about our meal was exceptional. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a five star place.

The view is even better than the food, but the buffet that they have on Sundays is really very good and is a nice place to take members of the family who may be visiting you for a while on the Connecticut shoreline.
