View is great - service needs improvement

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... read 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.

This place was recommended to us by a couple of the locals. The food was reasonably priced and the wait staff was awesome. Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy the view from our window due to Mother Nature not cooperating but overall I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

Met friends for a mini reunion. We only had a couple of hours to meet so this casual summer deck certainly met our needs. We were immediately greeted and led to the outside area. Our waiter quickly served us and the rest of the staff were very present to serve our needs and wishes. We ordered apps and drinks. Everything... More

My husband and I used to frequent this restaurant for many years for the lobster roll..but a few years ago it started to go downhill..so we stayed away for 3years.. Came back tonight with friends and we all were disappointed! The lobster meat was dry and tough and skimpy! The service was very very slow!

I was visiting from Arizona and my family and I decided to try Knapp's. First of all the service was deplorable. Really, the poor kid was trying but no way a good server. My husbands order was not put in so everyone but him got food. We waited and waited but the server never came back. Then we told another... More

We visited Knapp's Landing in our quest for the best lobster roll in Connecticut. As it is near our home, we were really hoping that it would be good enough to make us return. Unfortunately, Knapp's Landing missed the mark on several points. The good: - Stellar clam chowder. - Fantastic patio. The average: - The lobster was perfectly cooked,... More

Went there with my boat and docked. Had a nice lunch. When I left the restaurant dock I hit and bent my propeller as I pulled away from the dock. Had to limp back to my marina in Fairfield. When I called the restaurant and spoke to the owner Vin, he said I should have been aware as a boater... More

Knapps Landing (Gnats Landing after dusk) - Stratford, CT - 5/29/2015 The reason they even made it to three stars was because of the patio (at least until we got attacked by swarms of gnats) You cannot beat the location right on the water. It's set kind of in a weird place because you drive thru an industrial area to... More

Not really impressed. We've been there may times before. They no longer offer specials which is too bad. The specials always offered a nice variety to the somewhat small menu offerings.
