Just kidding - unfortunately we live too far away to make it our new favorite place. But we would if we could! The place is terrific. Nice atmosphere (choice of bar/bistro, comfy lounge or traditional dining room for seating) with jazz Muzak playing. Very good service and awesome food! I had the Angus sirloin tip gnocchi - wonderful! My wife... More

The chef here is a genius. I've been to many restaurants and I normally find a few things that I really want to order and spend about 5 minutes deciding between them. Here I was at a total loss because absolutely everything on this menu sounds absolutely delicious. Lobster Rockefeller Mac and cheese pretty much sealed the deal. Top that... More

Not only do you immediately feel at "Home" here, but the menu is always great. They have a seasonal menu so it's always new! I couldn't wait to try the new Green Pea Risotto. I didn't leave anything on the plate! It was so delicious! Also, the huckleberry lemonade in a mason jar was to die for! The servers are... More

Wow! Just what Branford needed.....a real homestyle restaurant with great food, a comfy lounge in the front and multiple seating options in the back. Owner operated by a nice couple who have a background in high-end restaurants and bringing that expertise to Lil Ole Branford. Everything done from scratch and done right at a really fair locals price.....

We brought my daughter and husband and his folks here for dinner and enjoyed it very much. Our waiter was wonderful and the food was very good. A few of us had the skirt steak and frites, which was very good, the tuna had fair reviews mostly because the sides were very minimal. The desserts were enjoyed by all. Atmosphere... More

We met friends after the movies Saturday night around 10:30 PM, for a light snack and drinks. It has an extremely comfortable and pleasant atmosphere!! The service was wonderful, great wine list and various late night snack options. The seating area in the bar has comfy chairs and couches. The Manager is friendly and visits his customers to ask how... More

My family and friends ALWAYS have a great meal at HOME. I always order a burger with fries. It's the best burger I've EVER had. My table guests have a more adventurous meal, but usually end up eating all my fries!! Thankfully, they're a very generous portion and there's enough to go around. Fries are uniquely seasoned as well. Yummy!!... More

I went to Home with my family for dinner on a Saturday night. My kids couldn't believe we could sit on a couch and enjoy dinner (there are plenty of regular tables too). The salmon was funky and amazing - cooked perfectly. We had the plain and buffalo chicken Mac and cheese - both really good. Our picky eater got... More
