I've lived in CT my whole life and have never ventured to B & T, even though my sister lives a few short miles from there. When making plans to meet with some long time girlfriends in Old Lyme, one recommended this place. What a gem! First of all, the staff were all fantastic. Upbeat and happy to accommodate. They had select wines for Happy Hour at $5 a glass and we strolled down the lawn to the river and watched the sun set and enjoyed the gardens and cool artwork. Then for dinner, they set up a table for 6 in the bar which was relaxed and comfortable. They had a dinner special which was $75 for a couple (each get: appetizer, entrée and dessert, plus a bottle of wine). That was an awesome deal! The bartender even upgraded our wine. The food was very good! What a gem of a place right in town! I didn't see the guest rooms, but the public space was fun, eclectic, and classic! All in all, a wonderful experience and I hope to go back soon!
