Like Home, without the cooking

Great seasonal menu. The staff is happy to make changes to the menu for personal taste or dietary restrictions. Fun atmosphere.

I hate to give a negative review to a place that has such great reviews. We visited on Sunday night and should have left when we saw the hallway was filled with 30 or more people waiting for a private party. Waited 20 minutes to be seated in front of the jazz duo. Ordered after a reasonable wait, the waited... More

Dining comfort for everyone- at a table or a big, comfy couch! The food is delicious and the variety can suit just about everyone. Live Blues guitarist was excellent the night I was there. Nobody rushed us through dinner, but the service was appropriately attentive. It was a lovely place to linger over coffee and soak up the Blues.

Have eaten here three times. Everything is made on premises, their soups are delicious and always just the right temperature. Great burgers and grilled cheese too. Friendly waitstaff. Would recommend to anyone who wants a comfortable restaurant and great food.

Home specializes in local foods and beverages. Bread comes from local bakers; beer from local breweries along with many others. The owner is always around checking on your enjoyment. Wait staff is very attentive; food is enjoyable.

Obviously this place comes highly recommended and being in the cnter of twon it is also easy to reach and has some decent competition. First impression: friendly greeting and the choice between Bar, Lounge (Living Room) and Dining Room. All looks in great shape and modern, yet cozy. I came here twice and sat in the dining room and at... More

Some friends of ours had recommended this place to us, not only for the food but for being so allergy friendly. My wife is gluten free and I'm lactose intolerant, so it can be tricky finding something we both can enjoy. We decided to give it a try for my birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint! We had the... More

My friend & I had the pleasure of dining at Home restaurant. I enjoyed a thick veal steak which was cooked to perfection while she had gnocci made in a special white sauce. The service is great & friendly & from what I understand, the menu is changed often. What a great dining experience!

My girlfriend and I were in Branford, Connecticut on Saturday November 15, 2014. We were not sure where to go for dinner. We have been to my favorite restaurants Darbar India and Jalapeno Heaven numerous times and wanted to try something different. I do go to TripAdvisor and saw Home Restaurant listed #1 out of 130 restaurants. We decided to... More
