Excellent band on Mondays called Tuxedo Junction, probably the best big band era band on the east coast. However, restaurant still has no air conditioning, poor ventilation very hot. Most disturbing I went to pay and they only except cash(are you kidding me)Antiquated concept. I was pissed I had to... read more

Great outdoor dining by the inlet, casual, and a smoking section on outside bar area...can't beat it! A great place to go for seafood, drinks and relaxing with family and friends.

Bill's Seafood in Westbrook, CT next to the "singing bridge" is a great place to have fresh seafood on a sunny day. The wait staff is friendly and the menu selection covers everything you can think of. Make sure you sit out on the desk which has picnic type benches on a sunny day.

Warm lobster roll was adequate, but over priced. Cole slaw was excellent for my taste (not sweet). I actually got them to make the fries the way I like (well done and crispy). Very comfortable outside seating at picnic tables by the water. Friday lunch was very busy. They actually were using their valet parking, although you can always find... More

My husband and I were in town for work and drove an hour to come here based on several recommendations. The food was great and we loved the low key atmosphere, especially after spending all day in an office building. You can sit inside or outside and there is a wonderful ice cream shop out front. Highly recommend saving room... More

I never have had a seafood restaurant give me 2 cold lobsters before. Tasteless ...I was going to complain but the corn and potatoes were also tasteless. The tab came to 78 and when I went to pay only then did they tell me it was cash only. I won't be back.

While visiting the area, we spotted this place and decided to stop for refreshments. Parking as some have said was kind of challenging. This was mid afternoon, so we didn't have any problem, but I can see that it would be at a busier time. We sat out on the deck a few tables away from the "singing bridge." We... More

We stopped here on the way into town for a week. Although the parking lot was packed, there were people out directing traffic. We thought for sure we would be in for a long wait, but we were sat within 5 minutes and service was great! Food was simple, but very good.

Been several times. Not impressed but unique. Noisy bridge when on the deck. Food is nothing to get excited about. Pricy and they demand CASH ONLY! Sad for vacationers. Staff is not attentive and I've always had to flag them down. Parking is a joke. OK for drinks and and small bite. Not cool for dinner.
