I travel miles on miles for good bbq. I was over joyed when I heard that a new place for ribs and brisket was just down the road I flew in my car to get there. It was worth the trip. Brisket was so juicey it melted in your mouth the ribs were just right. I will be back.

I have to laugh, since my meals consist of 95% veggies and fruit, it was a touch call for me at this restaurant. For those who enjoy ribs and such, this might be a keeper, but for me I'll have to deny this one a spot on my "favorites" list. Overall, I will give them credit for having a good... More

The mac and cheese is a stand out. We also enjoyed the fried chicken with honey sriracha sauce. Salads were great. No complaints. Service can be slow, but worth a stop when you have the time.

Just left W&C --- today's service disappointing. The restaurant was practically empty. Chicken and waffles are now served with a wing and leg thrown on the plate. When I inquired about the servings the waitress answered with her back turned away, "It's always been the way" and ran away to service the non existent customers. Not so missy. After my... More

Lots of unique menu options. Beer list is constantly changing and always has something new to try. Cocktail menu has a lot of variety. My go-to menu items are the burger and the mac and cheese. The wings are great too, a twist on the typical buffalo wings. Overall a great place, but a little pricey!

First off, the food is good here and the prices are a tiny bit on the high side for what you get.Took my 12 yo daughter here for dinner tonight and she ordered off the kids menu and enjoyed it. I ordered pork shoulder and jalapeno cheddar sausage and 2 good brews and enjoyed it as well. The food was... More

Food is amazing. Try a little of everything and share with your friends. There is parking but you have to find it.

Been to Walrus a few times and we are never disappointed but I'd say the prices are a bit steep. -The tap list has some local favorites but you're looking at $7-9 a pint -The food has been consistently good with favorites being the fried chicken and short ribs

First read the favorable reviews in CT Magazine. The chicken and waffles are signature, with a special spice added. On another visit I ordered the brisket. I would not order this again. My husband enjoyed the ribs. The sides are decent. Worth a visit on Saturday or Sunday for the chicken and waffles.

This is the second time we ate at this restaurant. The first time was great, but this time it was mostly great. Everyone in my party either ordered ribs or burgers. The portions was large and generous. One of the people only ordered and avocado/radish salad for $11. 11 dollars!! Obviously the thinking was that this would be a "salad"... More
