Great Place for a Date

Amazing food. My friend and I sat upstairs which was a little more quiter. We had the guac app which was missing something, maybe lime juice? My friend had a steak cooked to perfection and I had the veggie Polenta. My dish I thought wasn't gonna be all that, but WOW!! They know what they are doing... read more

Food is consistently good and they accommodate to many diet restrictions. In warm weather there is sidewalk seating. Upstairs is a great place for large groups. Great service!!

Enjoyed very much. Meal and service very good. no wait to be seated. Were not rushed through our meal and were accommodated when we asked for different table upstairs when the downstairs area proved too loud.

Great pub style food but not really like England. Our go to spot when we want a casual meal. Quite noisy and stay away from the second floor. No atmosphere and not as good service. Our granddaughters love it.

The lobster bisque was tasty, but arrived luke warm. Sent it back and it arrived so hot after 5 min. I needed to add an ice cube. The Reuben, again was very tasty, but the bottom piece of bread was VERY soggy! After the experience with the bisque I opted not to send it back. Beware sending back items. Have... More

Food was decent - great fries. Waitress spilled entire carafe of water on one of our guests, and kept bringing more drinks (soda) without asking. Crab cakes could have been better. Next time I'd stick with a burger or club sandwich. Nice little downtown area.

I had the chopped Cobb salad with a topping of gorgonzola and walnuts, plus blue cheese dressing, and this is simply heaven for a blue cheese lover! Delish!! The waitstaff performs very well, no complaints there - but if you want to hold a conversation, bring a megaphone!!!

Old Saybrook is a great little shoreline town. I've eaten upstairs once but prefer the dark wooden ambiance of the pub. This time we ordered shepherds pie and pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. Lots of good options on the menu but we were interested in a quick bite on a chilly April evening. Great wine list - I... More
