Husband enjoyed his yellow tuna fin , my pork and cavatelli pasta dish just ok . My husband loved the tuna tartare in a sauce with Arborio rice . I gave him half my dinner. Small portions in that uppity restaurant way . On the...pricey way . Doesn’t seem “ right “ for main st. In Branford. They might prefer to think of Home as “ fancier “. It is not .More

I expected home style food but sadly not. The best I found was a turkey burger when I expected at least a meat loaf.

What an incredible dining experience last night. This restaurant checks all the boxes for me. You can go high top bar area, comfortable lounge seating or traditional dining space. Staff is incredible from the bartenders to the servers and bussers. You understand the service when...you see (and meet) the owner who's engaging with his guests and touching tables throughout the evening. Just a unique and incredibly delicious menu. Go there with the plan to share 5-6 things. Thank you HOME for a wonderful evening with my wife.More

Home is a friendly eatery featuring home-made-from-scratch food. The service is friendly and personal. A dining area in the back is fine for larger groups and family celebrations, while a lounge area in the front, with chairs and low couches is better for relaxed-with-a-drink with...friends, is for more informal dining. There is parking across the street and on the street. A short trip off I-95, Home is a fun place to eat.More

EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE....... We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened eight years ago. I always say that I am going to write a review but now I finally got around to doing it.We have had constant and delicious food every time....Tonight is Valentines night so we went for an early dinner Appetizers consisted of Beef Stroganoff Egg Rolls( outstanding) and What they call the slice of the day,Thick crispy Sicilian Pizza tonight it was topped with meatballs and arugula OMG UNBELIEVABLE...DINNER was a encrusted pork rib eye steak and also herb crusted chicken breasts over a bolognese gluten free pasta... The dessert was to die for we had fried cannoli rolled in cinnamon and sugar with choc oreo gelato and homemade whip cream...... Some of the other dishes we have gotten over the years The Home Burger (DELISH)..The Patty Melt , Roasted Brussel Sprouts,Hummus Platter(FRESH AND DELICIOUS) ... The restaurant has a full Bar and Wine List also they serve local Beer ..... reasonably priced and the Owner/Chef Jared is so nice and is very accommodating he also changes his menu often and serves fresh and in season dishes... Oh and did I mention a wonderful atmosphere and clientele ... If you are looking for a wonderful experience I would highly recommend.More

Well we have always loved the food here but lately (within) the last year we have been disappointed. Cheaper ingredients but higher prices. The grilled chicken salad for the price of 17.00 is all lettuce one small piece of chicken, pear, what pear, cranberries, hardly...any. Burgers, yeah they are good but if I want a burger I can go many places on the shoreline. The menu has not changed in many years. Time for a upgrade of items. Enough with the broccoli rabe, brussels sprouts and cabbages. These are inexpensive ingredients. I'd like to see a better variety of appz and main courses. If it doesn't change we won't be back. This was our bill for what wasn't a fancy or great dinner.More

Ordered Home on Uber Eats tonight.. and received completely raw salmon on my salad. Plus, a burger ordered medium, came rare. A customer should still be served edible food even if they ordered food to the door. If a restaurant cannot keep up and check...their to go orders before they leave, then they should not even offer Uber Eats. Disappointed. Would not recommend.More

Having never been here before we stopped in. The first thing that hits you is that there are no table as one would see in a normal restaurant. Instead what you get are furniture tables that are at time difficult to eat from. Now as...to the food, My date had the salad which was large and she found it ok. My dinner was their home burger with hand cut fries. When my plate arrived the fries were very dark in color and very greasy, the burger wasn't that much better. I asked for a pink color when cooked .... got a well done. The burger was so greasy that I had to discard the bun as it was loaded with oil that tasted off. So for a first time visit I was put off.... there are other restaurants in this area that I thing are much better.More

There is a parking lot right across the street and also meter-free street parking. There's another smaller parking area in the back. You shouldn't have any problems with that. Enjoy!
