I love good service, and Stacey and I got it tonight. The service is principally why I upgraded this review from only two stars; the rating that they would deserve were I only commenting upon the flavor of the food. To put it bluntly, the chef needs to learn how to season fish. My cod was flavorless and Stacey's salmon... More

Great restaurant for a variety of dining experiences. We like to eat in the bar area of the restaurant and order off of the bar menu quite often as it has a good selection of dinners with smaller, but adequate portions at a very reasonable price. We also go to the early bird special with friends the few times that... More

We haven't had a bad meal yet. The seafood is fresh and the drinks are strong. They have always been very accommodating with our large family as well. Even when we didn't have reservations, the owner was able to squeeze us in. The owner is a hands on presence and obviously takes pride in his establishment. if you're looking for... More

Restaurant is welcoming and staff attentive. The food smelled delicious when we walked in. This was our first visit. We were seated at a nice quiet booth. The food and wine was reasonably priced. We loved the family style serving of fresh salad with homemade dressings. The bread basket had the most flavorful pumpernickle bread that came from a bakery... More

This is right down the street and we have never been! We will be coming back! The food was amazing!! No wonder why it is packed! I suggest reservations. We had crab cakes for an app, baked stuffed shrimp, salmon special and Bouillabaisse which was not my entree but it blew me away. Lobster tail, salmon, three crab legs, clams,... More

We don't go out often but when we do we often end up at Saybrook Fish House knowing that every meal eaten here in over ten years has been nothing less than excellent. Dinner always starts with a great salad, the house creamy garlic dressing is delicious. The champagne vinagrette is also good. Tonight we had the sea scallops-huge and... More

Typically one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Tonight's experience had much to be desired - extremely slow service, never refilled tea and had to stop servers to get water refills - that wouldn't be enough to leave a negative review. The manager brought the food out which is obviously very overcooked and advises that sometimes it tastes okay... More

The seafood is great along with the service. I love the fried oysters and the boulaibaise (sp?) and my husband's favorite is the muscles Florentine. Yum!

This isn't a gourmet experience and not every restaurant has to be. You get good value for the price and my meals there have always been good. My personal favorite is their stuffed shrimp. A New England favorite in New England.
