The food and staff are great but the Management must not really care about the comfort of they custumers because the AC has been broke for going on three weeks so get it to go great food

Unfortunately we are the mercy of the HVAC contractor as the unit is under warranty. We are well aware of the issue and address it daily. More

As a New Haven native I used to spend many summer nights (and especially on promotion day) at Savin Rock. I can still conjur the calliope echoing carousel music in my nostalgic brain. So, on a recent visit to CT, friends suggested we head over to West Haven beach to see all the changes. And lo there were some! We... More

I was with a party of nine. I ordered a steak and another guy in our group ordered post roast. The gentleman that ordered the pot roast sliced it up and said to the server this is awful tough for pot roast. The sever said no it's pot roast. But shortly thereafter realized it was my steak. I heard the... More

First, let me apologize for the poor service you received. You are absolutely correct and this was completely unacceptable and not the way I want my guests' experience to be. Please contact me directly (Liz) at 203-932-0100 so that I may discuss this with you further More

My family and I decided to go out for an early supper. I had the clam strips which were delicious and very crispy. They have so many different items on their menu, I would like to go back and try other selections. They also have quite a selection of draft beer. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful.

We've been here several times, and always come away impressed by the quality of the food and the variations in the menu. In addition to seafood that tastes fresher than some other places in the neighborhood, there are always seasonal specials and menu items that are worth trying. The outside dining deck is surprisingly pleasant, and quieter than the inside... More

From the outside the place doesn't look like much, surprise! The food is fantastic. My husband and I both had a special for the week. He had homemade chic pot pie and I had almond encrusted chicken with a ameretto cream sauce. Yum yum yum. I got two pieces of chicken but could only eat one. It came with a... More

A party of 12 went to Savin Rock to celebrate my daughter's graduation from college. We had called previously to make reservations. When I drove up to the restaurant I immediately thought I had the wrong place. Outside looks can be deceiving. The restaurant was fabulous and the waitress and owners were friendly and hospitable. The food was delicious. There... More

We discovered Savin Rock Roasting Company 2 summers ago while visiting family in west haven. There is something for every member of the family on the menu. The food is reliably delicious and portions are generous without being overdone. Today we sampled the chicken pot pie, white pizza with chicken, & kids hamburgers. Two thumbs up for everything!

I went to lunch at Savin Rock Roasting Company and it cost me $14 dollars for a fish sandwich you gotta be kidding me. You only got the sandwich/lettuce/tomatoe/ pickle. No fries or slaw!! This it New York cost for a fish sandwich not West Haven please stay away from this place unless you bring a bank roll!!!!

I'm sorry that you did not feel as though you got value for your money. We buy the freshest and best quality seafood available which does cost a little more but we don't want to compromise the quality. More
