Went with a group of friends for lunch. Almost everybody had a half sandwich and left quite full. My pastrami was so good I almost wished I lived in a city again. The seven experienced cooks around the table all expressed satisfaction with their meals. The restaurant is in desperate need of sound absorbing materials in the dining area, though.... More

From the start this place was amazing. The lady(hostess) was very personable. We called ahead and when we arrived 30 min later she was right there helping clean the tables and got us seated within 5min. after we arrived. The waitress, Sally was awesome. She was in complete control - she knew the menu and new what,if any items they... More

This may be our new favorite restaurant! It has lots of things going for it: a large menu, efficient and friendly service, generous portions and some really wonderful cooking. A couple of items off the specials menu were outstanding: a home-made smoked salmon was wonderfully flavorful, and a baked-stuffed pork creation (pork Valdostana or something like that) was huge and...

We went to Savin Rock for dinner. Since we were "virgins" to the restaurant we were treated with a complimentary dish of their specially slow roasted meats. Mouth watering! We were there for the crab bisque which is one of their specialties. It was unusual but very tasty. I had the half lobster tail with the citrus sauce. I'm not... More

As a busy neighborhood bar and grill it does get quite busy and loud on the weekends. If you would like to enjoy our great food with a little less hustle and bustle, try visiting during the week More

My girlfriend and I visited recently and thoroughly enjoyed the service and amazing sandwiches. The Pastrami Classic and Roast Beef Triple were instant winners. Our waitress Dawn was fun, attentive, and had great recommendations. I live close by and hope to make this a more regular experience.

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
