This is the second year we have done this - our "After Christmas" party for our great Raynard & Peirce real estate team - and - it was outstanding again. Heidi and Mike just kept the appetizers coming hot out of the kitchen. Bowls of Mussels with bread to dunk, rice "balls", chicken satay, crab cakes, steak tacos, crostini with... More

Parking may be hard to find, but the food is worth the walk! Even something as simple as a burger comes out top notch! The specials are always unique, wonderful and tasty! At this point we are weekly regulars, and I don't intend to change that.

We've had many meals (lunches and dinners) at Wood Creek and every one has been outstanding- the food, the service, the location. Couldn't ask for anything more. The staff knows the menu, the options are quite varied and the preparation of the food is terrific. Highly recommended, and very much worth the trip!

On a fall foliage loop drive around, we came upon this town center that looked like it came straight out of a children's book. We weren't really hungry but stopped at this bar and grill anyway. And I am glad we did. We sat at the bar area. The place was pretty full but not overly noisy so we could... More

I met some family members here for a quick bite before a show at the Infinity theater next door. Many years ago, this was a local pub but has since made the move to a more upscale atmosphere in the dining area. We ate in the bar and the food was decent, with a varied menu. Service was prompt and... More

Sunday early afternoon we arrived in Norfolk CT after a leisurly drive through the sunny countryside. The choices for restaurants in Norfolk are not many and this bar & grill seemed inviting, even though a horde of Harley bikers were parked in the adjacent public lot. We were not disappointed. The food selections, although limited, were interesting and varied. Meals... More
