Great food, nice crowd

The food was very good; the menu was quite extensive. My friend and I sat at the bar and everyone, including the bartender, was very friendly. The chef even came out to say hello. The prices are average. I highly recommend checking out Zack's...good times!!

Fresh Seafood, Good Specials and Prime Rib! Small bar and limited seating makes this place feel special. I started with the French Onion soup, very good. My entrée was their Seafood Stew, full of clams, Mussels, large Shrimp and fish in a savory broth. My wife ordered filet mignon med. rare with scallops! One minor criticism...when paying by credit card... More

My friend and I went to this restaurant based on the reviews as well as the fact that it was one of the sites where the movie "Mystic Pizza" was filmed. Zack's was one of the best meals we had during our drive through New England. The food was fantastic. Plus all their soups and appetizers are half price before... More

Walking into Zack's was like walking into a local neighborhood, we were the only people who weren't locals and we felt right at home. I ordered scallops and they were the BEST I have ever eaten, fresh & cooked just perfectly. The scallops & seafood are fresh daily and they taste it. Lynn the owner was warm & friendly and... More

We visit this place weekly. The food and service are so consistently excellent, I need to leave a review. This is a local joint, so it doesn't look fancy and it is dark inside. The chef really knows how to cook beef and Seafood equally well. Check out the chalk board specials. These are always creative and well done. Desserts... More

Zack's is a go to spot for happy hour with half price apps. The scallops wrapped in bacon are huge and so yummy.

This is our most favorite place in Stonington for our family dinner nights out. Best food and fabulous service. Pricing in a tourist town...is very reasonable. Staff is outstanding and very professional. I recommended this place to everyone. It's truly a hidden treasure! A must for all to go to for a wonderful dinner out in the New England area.... More

This gem is tucked under the viaduct and we locals love it! In addition to the menu, there are always 3 or 4 tempting special entrees on their menu board. The food is delicious and the waitstaff friendly and efficient. Try the scallops wrapped in bacon appetizer which is a meal in itself. For dessert the carrot cake is the... More
