Friendly pub with good food

Chips Pub has great service, a friendly atmosphere and it's open relatively late. The food is solid, basic pub food and most of it is very good--this is not fancy dining but it is generally satisfying.

Among the worst eateries we have been to on the Shoreline. If you are looking for reasonably priced bland food that lacks quality and makes you feel ill when done - this is the place for you. Was considering two stars because waitress was nice but can assure you we are never returning. Wife ordered ribs which had an odd... More

In the US Route 1 in Clinton, Connecticut, by an accident, we stopped at this place because we like the name "pub" and were hoping it to be a New England. It was early New Years Eve and the place was empty, sort of. The place was clean and was an Americanized pub. We liked it except that wired and... More

Previous visits were very good quality. On saturday night I ordered take out fish and chips,, I picked the order up when I was told it would be ready. Initially the bar tender was slow to give me my order , about 5 minutes +/- , I proceeded to return home with the order about 5 minutes. When we opened... More

Went here on a whim after shopping at the outlets. Place was pretty busy but the hostess seated us quick and waitress was fast with orders and food came out super fast. Had the super roasted red pepper chicken quesadilla. Which was really good. Has quite a few good brews available. If you like pubs this place is perfect.

The buffalo wings with potato skins are absolutely delicious. The food at Chips Pub III is exception all around.

My husband and I are new to the area and stopped in. The place was clean and had a lot to offer. We liked the bowl of popcorn to munch on while you wait for your food. We were excited to find they had bison! Very good burger. We will definitely return.

We regularly eat at Chip's Pub during the summers at the shore. The staff is friendly and service overall is generally good. it gets very busy on weekends and on Thursday evenings and service does slow a little when they are busy. Food and drinks are always good. Wonderful Bloody Marys. The only two negatives is that they charge extra... More

Nice atmosphere and food. I like their mussels, very tasty. Good burgers and fine selection of beers. Good place for an informal gathering
