We live in Eastford and were thrilled they opened a higher end restaurant right in our neck of the woods. We have gone there about 5 or 6 times so I feel we are qualified to write this. The food is good but the portions...More

If you're looking for an all-you-can-eat buffet where you need to loosen your pants to breathe after eating, this is not the restaurant for you. If you're looking for a totally different experience with specially selected products, mostly local, but all chosen for their quality,...More

I'll preface this by saying that we have been here before for some special occasions and have found this place quite memorable. This time, however, our high expectations were diminished the moment we were "greeted" by a less than motivated host. From there we were...More

Based on the media hype, my wife and I decided to take the 1+ Hour drive to Still River Cafe (it really is in the deep northeast of Connecticut) from the southeast coast to indulge in their tempting Sunday lunch menu. The restaurant is located...More

Great setting, even better food. Fresh and imaginative, in a lovely room with good service. If you are traveling between NY and Boston, take the time to get off the highway and spend a few hours here. You will be very happy you did. One...More
