For the simple pleasure of seafood by the sea

We stopped here on a hot summer's day for lunch, craving lobster rolls by the sea. Fairfield County has a surprising dearth of waterfront restaurants, so we were happy to discover this option in the tiny Lordship community of Stratford. The 'very good' rating is based on the restaurant being a very... read more

after a long day at the office I decided to take my boys to seaside dinner at Knapps Landing in Stratford I must say what a disappointment! From the gnats that continuously attacked us upon entry 😩 to the most disguising "seafood stuffing"I ever tasted! 😤You'd think the manager would provide some type of compensation for my disappointment BUT of...

Very limited menu. The food was ok but the prep had 3 meals overcooked. Partially rubbery lobster roll not a good thing. We didn't send them back, shame on us. 3 mojitos with no simple syrup or cane sugar? One had a ton of rum. I suppose that is a good thing. It was breezy on the deck so no... More

Nice place to go sit outside especially on a nice summer evening. The outside bar is especially nice. Also have been there on weekends when they have had a band outside. Love the outdoor atmosphere but their food is just "OK" - had the fried calamari it was greasy and overcooked/think it was frozen not fresh. Decided not to order... More

Night was perfect with great friends sitting by the water outside with some easy listening band playing in the background. Drinks and food were delicious. Would definitely go back.

The patio at the restaurant is right on the water. The setting is beautiful. I took a friend out to celebrate her birthday. We shared an order of mussels and the oyster platter. I love seafood, but this was some of the best I have ever eaten! Our waiter was extremely attentive. A beautiful day by the water, fantastic food... More

Went for dinner with coworkers in the middle of the week. It filled up around 7. Menu is not extensive but covers the basics. Service was decent and we all enjoyed our meals. I had a bowl of the seafood chowder; not exactly chock full of fish or potatoes but the creamy base was very flavorful. I'd go back as... More

The location is great for a seafood restaurant. The food is average, not outstanding! When we visited the restaurant,the specials showed creative ideas, but when the meals were served you quickly tasted average food. The rice was over cooked and the vegetables were boring. The most outstanding feature was the very below average service!!! There was a long wait to... More

Any time in southern CT, I look forward to lunch or dinner here, especially in fair summer days when the view of Long Island Sound, the Housatonic, and Audubon preserve help evaporate the cares of the workaday world. Great service with good, good food. Some of the best crab cakes.
