“Excellent creative dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile


Chef owner Corey Wry has 3 eating establishments in town but this is the upscale flagship. For signature dishes try the Steak N Eggs, or the Dr. Pepper braised short ribs. For catch, haddock is surprisingly good, preferred over the swordfish. Don't miss two outstanding side dishes: goat cheese scalloped potatoes and blue cheese potato croquettes.

“Never Fails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

If you want happy hour at the bar or a nice table for 2, CW's Chops & Catch never fails to serve up great food and drinks. The happy hour drinks and apps are agreat deal for the $$ and always please. If eating in the dining room let me recommend Judy's Chicken, the Ribeye (outstanding), and I love the goat cheese scalloped potatoes!! I have been here MANY times and Corey and his staff never fail to get it right!!

“Best place to eat in Manchester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

CW's is the upscale restaurant of two other restaurants in town run by Chef/Owner Cory Wry. I am very lucky to travel the world and eat at many great restaurant's. I recently ate at CW's and had the best piece of Salmon that I have ever had. It was a special that is not on the normal menu. CW's likes to source local ingredients and even wine and liquor.
This is a great place to go out for special occasions or just to meet friends for lunch or dinner.
CW's replaced a very popular restaurant that was in the same location for years before. I like that CW's has a dish dedicated to the former Nulli's and has a Steak named for a former fabulous Steak House in town called Willy's.
I highly recommend a visit if you are in the Manchester area. Well woth it.

“Fantastic food Fun Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

What a great surprise to a visit to a resturant last know to me as Nullies. The light colored wood wrapped around the room size bar was sun filled for lunch. The booths are large and extremely comfortable. Now the food..we started with the clams casino....the portion was large enough for a family of 4 and the flavors were spectacular. If you like Tuna their preparation and presentation were spot on. The steak cooked to perfection as well with great flavor accompanied by the garlic and Parmesan green beans was just yummy. We will definitely be returning to this spot.

“Great happy hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I have been to C w's several tines but we always go to happy hour at the bar. They offer really good snacks and several drink specials. I like the bacon wrapped scallops and the mussels but all the snacks are good. I understand the restaurant is owned by a local chief. Great place to unwind.
