We stopped in for lunch. The good news is that the food is still OK. You get your moneys' worth. The bad...our waitress was very nice but she was super slow coming to our table. She ignored us several times to attend to another table with six diners. Either she knew these people or she was expecting a larger tip... More

Three for lunch today. 744 West is not fancy but they offer solid meals at a fair price. The bar is always packed and the dining room is usually busy. Waitstaff is young and very personable. Food is good and portions are ample. Come here hungry. There is an outdoor deck used mostly by smokers. You can sit outside when... More

On father's day I had the pleasure if choosing the place to eat. Our favorite place closed down and the Texas Road house was packed to the rafters so I decided on 744 West in our West Haven neighborhood. Located at 744 Boston post road in West Haven this bar/restaurant was a very intimate change of pace. The menu has... More

I was not expecting much from 744 but I was very pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Everything was prepared very well, especially the fish which is so often overlooked. My halibut over pasta with vegetables was delicious. Nice piece of fish and the pasta done perfectly. A hamburger was overdone but still good. The house salad which accompanied... More

We have eaten here many times but not recently. Thought we would give it a return visit. This is a neighborhood sort of place. It's a road house to use an old fashioned term. You will find many different types of folks here. The bar is usually very busy with locals eating and drinking. The dining room caters to couples... More

I came here Saturday May 2, 2015 around 2:30 pm. I wanted to be close in West Haven as my Dad was in the VA recovering from pneumonia. I was here many years ago and a co-worker recently told me how good this place was. It received many positive Yelp/Trip Advisor reviews so I wanted to check it out for... More

Going out with some friends and someone suggested we try this place. Being from Cheshire I had never heard of it but figured we would give it a try. Pleasantly surprised with a great, affordable meal. We shared nachos and calamari appetizers, both were excellent. I got the linguine and clams. Tasted very good and fresh. They had a large... More
