Stopped in for a quick Friday night dinner. Waited approx 20 mins for a table in the upstairs dining room. Felt a little claustrophobic, would have preferred to eat in the main dining room. Food selection was ample, and everything we ordered was delicious. Service was lacking at first, however improved dramatically by the end of our meal. The dining... More

Driving around on a Saturday night and notice Penny Lane Pub, with alfresco dining. Decided to give it a try. Could not get a table outside and decided to eat inside. Atmosphere was pleasant. Staff was attentive and food was very good. My wife had "English cut Prime Rib with "Yorkshire pudding, potato and vegetable. Very tender and tasty. I... More

A big fan of clam chowder and a couple of people in my group had it as well and we all thought it was great! I have been there a few time sitting inside and outside when its nice. The inside has a quaint homey feel to it, very comfortable. They have a few tables out side on the near... More

Probably one of the most amazing grilled cheese sandwiches ive ever had! The owner always seems to be present and has a very hands on approach, his workers clearly work hard and their is a very clear mutual respect amongst the team. With that being said, suggestions were made and food was brought promptly. Delicious!! Cant wait to go back!

We enjoyed our meal here very much. We had 2 adults and 6 kids in our party, and everyone was pleased. We had salads, burgers, nachos, pasta and ribs. Food was great, service was great, atmosphere was great---will definitely be back!

Was brought to this pub by my date for the night; we were about to see a show at the theater down the street, The Kate. I wouldn't call Penny Lane a pub. It doesn't have that type of atmosphere in my opinion. It felt like fine dining. The service was that good. It was a beautiful summer evening. Had... More

Great little restaurant! How did I not find this place before? The service was great and the food was fantastic. We had to wait a little bit as it was pretty crowded but nothing that a drink at the bar cannot fix. Our server was very nice and helpful, even telling us to try the spinach and artichoke dip as...

The CB was so tender & succulent that I'd kill for another portion but, alas, I am now in Mystic, working our way up to Maine by boat. It was served on marble bread - with a big dill pickle. Fries were also excellent. We also had the poached pear salad - very fresh mixed greens, candied walnuts and a... More
