An Average Experience

I went here for lunch on a holiday. It was not crowded when we arrived at 12:45 PM, but got more crowded. I'd been here before and found the food and experience average, but people give it such good marks, I thought it was worth another shot. Again, my experience was just average. I found the... read more

House Cured Pastrami - end of story! We found ourselves in West Haven today, and ultimately found our way to this delightful establishment. Is it fancy? No. Were we warmly welcomed with a "flight" of homemade meats (by our fab waitress Sheila)? You're darn right we were! Once we sampled the pastrami, it was all over. My colleague had a... More

Our family was in the area for one wintry evening and we were looking for something enjoyable after a long afternoon of driving. The reviews and menus we found online made this sound like it might hit the spot. We unfortunately did not have reservations and the place was filling up quickly when we arrived. The hostess seemed genuinely disappointed... More

The pastrami is just wonderful. They brine it there! Lean and tender. Try a half sandwich and cup of soup. Huge portions. Great fresh food.

I was looking for a place that had both seafood and meat dishes for a family dinner. This was at the top of the stack - and it deserves it! There is a great variety of food - we had fish, chicken, pasta, and a burger - all of it prepared perfectly and reasonably priced. All dinners come with salads,... More

We live nearby and it's sometimes too tempting to live so close. Good food, good prices, good variety. We went recently with friends and I had The Racer (eggplant cutlets with fresh mozzarella) rather than the B-52 (my usual, regular eggplant parm) and it is now one of my favorite restaurant meals. I have never had a bad meal here... More

We chose to meet our nephew here based on the recommendations of others and weren't disappointed. It is no wonder that this is the #1 restaurant in West Haven on Trip Advisor. To start with, their pastrami, roast beef and corned beef are prepared on premises and are the best I've tasted in Connecticut. Three of the party had the... More

This place was recommended to me by a person at the visitor's center in New Haven. At first, I thought it might be a coffee place, based on it's name. Then I came to find out it's because they roast all kinds of meats there...and they are fantastic! You can buy their meats by the pound, or sit down and... More

So you think you've had a good Roast Beef Grinder before, hey? Wait a minute...not until you've had one from Savin Rock Roasting. Their roast beef is so tender and flavorful you won't believe it. That's because they slow roast all their beef, I believe it's for like 18 hours. Service is always great, atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming, like... More
