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! A special... More

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

Nice little restaurant with a huge menu. Everything we've ever had there has been excellent. Friendly servers, reasonable prices and great grilled pizza specials. What could be better?

Just made an impromptu visit to this restaurant and was not impressed. Service was great but the food was seriously lacking. I ordered soup and salad..kind of hard to mess that up but they did! The Crab Bisque was congealed and gross...even adding oyster crackers did not help this bowl of orange gook that had very little if any crab... More

I am so glad you enjoyed your visit especially since I believe I waited on you. As the owner, I don't always wait tables, just help out sometimes and feel that my staff does a better job at it than I do. Our parking is very small indeed; however, there is large lot across the street that is available. I... More

We meet old friends several times each year trying to find locations halfway from our homes. When deciding to meet this weekend i spotted this place on Groupon and checked it out.
