I took a gamble and brought my inlaws, that were visiting from Florida, to lunch. At first I was worried because at 12:30 there wasn't many cars in the parking lot, but by 1:15 the restaurant was full. We had apps first then lumch. The food was fresh, plentiful and delicious. The waitstaff was exeptional. Steve was our waiter, can't... More

It seems to be a common trend in the center of Connecticut to get poor service at a fish restaurant. If I didn't enjoy the food I would never go back. The service here is terrible. My biggest complaint is how rude they are. I have been here once a month for the past three months and every server or... More

I guess I heard so many great things about this place, that I was so very disappointed in almost everything. The "host" was so grumpy that it seemed he could almost not bear to show us a table in the half-empty dining room. A very limited menu turned out to offer very small portions for the prices paid. And the... More

It has been years since I have eaten here. I went to lunch and was surprised! Hardly any customers and no hostess to seat you. A piece of paper was taped to the hostess stand with the words written in crayon "Seat yourself". Service was ok and my salad was good. They need a manger!

This was the worst restaurant we have been to in a VERY long time. The fish tasted like it had just been defrosted a few minutes earlier. The service was so-so. The decor was tired. And the prices were astronomical! We went here for a nice family dinner, and it was a huge disappointment. I could barely stomach signing the... More

After reading some of the reviews, I was a little bit hesitanate to try this place out. I was In town visiting family And really wanted some good local seafood. Everything was freshly prepared and made to order. The spinach salad came with 2 kinds of homemade dressing. I had a plate with clams, shrimp, scallops and fish. It was... More

We have been to the Saybrook Fish House in the past with good meals. The most recent time was disappointing. One meal was the sole dinner with small, dried out pieces of fish over rice. The other meal was the stuffed sole, baked stuffed shrimp and scallop combination. While the scallops were fine the sole again was one thin dried... More

Sat at the bar for a full fifteen minutes while maxxed out bar gal ran all over. She disappeared for five minutes at a time. Owner was roaming around in gym shorts and sandals with wool socks. Good grief. This is so not my kind of place. Staff seems bewildered, untrained.

Perfect food, friendly and competent staff. Clean. Talkative Waiters with very good Männer. Cuisinee served here- in my eyes far above average.

I travel to Rocky Hill often and it is always a delight to eat at Saybrook. From the soups to the salads to the fish - everything is excellent. The waitresses and waiters are friendly and knowledgeable. Highly Recommend

Thank jrsamples
