A Stonington Gem

Zack's has a wonderfully cozy atmosphere and is owned/staffed by truly gracious folks. The seafood dishes are particularly delicious, are obviously screaming fresh, and are worth the drive to Stonington from anywhere you might happen to call home. The restaurant is small with a limited number of... read more

If you are are looking for a really good small restaurant serving locally caught seafood such as Stonington Scallops, this is the place for you! I started off with a bowl of onion soup; very good. Then I ordered one of several "specials"; grilled rib eye with cream of spinish and bacon mash! Honestly, one of the best rib eyes... More

I find myself writing reviews of restaurants I visit while on vacation, but it hasn’t occurred to me until now to write about my husband’s and my favorite local place – Zack’s Bar and Grille in Stonington. Located at the end of North Main Street, under the bridge to the borough, Zack’s is our Cheers – where everyone knows our... More

We were just looking for a light supper and Dog Watch Café had over 1-1/2 hour wait. Came upon Zack's after reading trip advisor review. Although they were swamped we were offered a seat at the bar and seeing we were only looking for a light meal decided to take them up on the offer. Glad we did. Bartender was... More

My wife and I try to dine at Zack's on a weekly basis. Colleen and Linda are always prompt, courteous and attentive. As regulars, we have sampled nearly everything on the menu and have rarely been disappointed. However, the daily specials listed on the blackboard are usually spectacular. The swordfish and prime rib specials are always exceptional and occasional dishes... More

This dish was a special...and lucky for me, it was my birthday choice of venues....This swordfish was moist, super thick, having a crispy, braised red wine coating - no idea how this was accomplished by the chef. Truly, a special meal. The chef continues to innovate and succeeds in a unique presentation for seafood and meats. The desserts are scratch... More

We went with friends to this out of the way eatery and came away impressed with the ambiance, food and service. The hostess immediately directed us to a table and presented us with our menus. We were then quickly greeted by our server who took our drink orders and returned with them in short order. One of our party has... More
