Enjoyed a very delicious prime rib dinner. First they bring puts bread with a homemade spread. The spread was very tasty. The prime rib is served with a popover, potatoes and veggies. They also serve a horseradish sauce to go along with the prime rib. Service was good and the place is quite charming. Wed night is prime rib night... More

We had a chance to get together with friends during mid week to celebrate Valentine's Day. We had reservations for 7:00pm Great midweek special on Prime Rib. April our waitress made us feel right at home. After an enjoyable dinner we decide on a little desert . Key Lime pie was fantastic. Great evening .

I have become very disappointed in our recent visits to the Rooster Tail Inn Restaurant. Since my first review from November 2012 the dinners and branches have gone down hill. On 3 separate visits a member of our party had to turn back a meal for either being bad, (mussels) undercooked(meat) and meat in a veggie omlette. Service remains good... More

My wife and I went for a dinner for two and were very pleased with everything. The appetizer was an outstanding presentation of stuffed mushrooms. The dinner entrees were both suburb. I got the sirloin and my wife had stuffed lobster. Everything was so good that we asked to see the chef. He came out and was greeted by us... More

There are very few good restaurants in the area and we really wanted to like this one. When it opened, we were lured in by special prices and dinners. We tried most of them and were consistently disappointed. We stopped going altogether a few years ago. Today, we tried once more, this time at lunch. Big mistake. We had called... More

I have been to this restaurant four times. I enjoy the food, and it is beautifully decorated. However, the owners attitude on 3/4 I have been is unprofessional. Talking to your waitstaff about customers while in earshot of them is unnecessary. Treating customers whom she deems have money and importance better, and might I add obviously sucking up and treating... More

Yankee Silver Smith, a restaurant in Wallingford, CT used to serve delicious, light and crispy popovers in the middle of the dinner by a waitress in a traditional dress. The place burnt down and so the recipe. An attempt to revive the custom by Rooster Tail is far from successful. The popovers are served with prime rib on Wednesdays. The... More

We brought out-of-country friends to dinner and enjoyed Rooster Tail's "classic" American fare. They particularly enjoyed the beef and seafood dishes. Attentive staff who were there when needed, but didn't rush us. Friendly atmosphere. Excellent beers on tap and first-rate bar service. Will definitely return.

We stopped here for brunch following a visit to Lake Waramaug. While I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely view and the outdoor seating, the service could be improved. Originally seated at a table where the umbrella pole obstructed our view of each other, we were met with an awkward exchange with our waitress when we politely asked to move... More

We had brunch here on Mothers Day and were also celebrating our 25th anniversary. What a lovely Inn and restaurant. The owners are hands on which I am sure is the reason for the wonderful service. Brunch was a large buffet. Everything from eggs benedict, shrimp, salmon, filet mignon (rare, med rare and well done available) to my absolute favorite... More
