This is just a review to state that this restaurant in Westport is closed and apparently has been closed since around July 2013 based on another review I recently saw.

We didn't eat there. but the drafts were cold, I found the wine selection eclectic and reasonable, and they have something for all but the pickiest diners. Oh, we had a lovely grapefruit... More

But here we did. Three... More

We had two visits recently (11/2012) to dine at the Westport Hotel and Old Abalone Pub. Both were wonderful. Brunch was spectacularly perfect. Poached eggs in several dishes were worth a photo. The dinners were excellent in all ways. Beautiful decor. Great service. Ling Cod and vegetarian lasagna were great. All food is of exceptionally high quality -- the presentations... More

It was a pleasant surprise to find to find such a nice eating place in Westport. My wife and I both had the crab cakes and a garden salad. The crab cakes were fresh and well prepared. The salad was also. My wife had a glass of wine and it was fine and reasonably priced. The service was good.
