Interesting mix of seating, comfortable for business/casual lunch. Prompt and congenial servers. Slightly eclectic offerings; fabulously fresh everything! Cold lobster roll not to be missed.

Recently visited this venue which was participating in a Taste of the Suburbs genre event, and we were not disappointed. An actual steal at $20.13 a person for a three course prix fixe selection.
Varied items on the menu, and very generous servings, not your typical small portioned "Taste of" whatever type of event. Delicious Corn & Shrimp Chowder, Salad, wonderful bread, and Chicken and Flounder dishes were our entree offerings. Nice selection of wines at the aforementioned price also, and we enjoyed a delicate Pinot Grigio offering from Italy. Very busy scene, upscale, friendly, enjoying crowd. Excellent Service, and was even sought out by restaurant management to check in on things... always a nice touch.

We just had a great lunch at Max Fish in Glastonbury. Great atmosphere -- bustling yet tables/booths are quiet and comfortable. Inside is very old world urban. Outside is a little off-puttiing as it's in a mall but don't let that dissuade you from trying it.

They had an (unadvertised) 3 course special for CT Farm to Table 2013 which was a real bargain at $20.13. I had the tomato,nectarine, goat cheese salad -- wonderful-- and my friends enjoyed the lobster corn chowder. We all had the CT flounder with fingerling potatoes and local vegetables -- also great. We didn't really want dessert but since it came with it we ordered it and the cocunut custard pie was fabulous as was the ice cream and native peaches.

I forgot to mention the drinks -- cranberry lemon martini and blueberry sour -- delightful. I hesitated ordering the martini becasue I thought it might be too sweet but it was tart and delicious -- and I think it was only $8.

Wonderful afternoon.

Drinks were delicious--clean and citrusy--and were a nice complement to the appetizers. Raw bar selections were fresh and yummy. Delicious sourdough and flat bread with sweet CT dairy-fresh butter. The food was not complexly prepared but did not disappoint. Preparation and plating emphasized the freshness of all ingredients. Skate was served simply and elegantly over greens. Lobster Cobb Salad was relatively more rich but still emphasized freshness rather than butteriness. Key Lime Tart, like the cocktails that started our meal, was citrusy and clean and delicious

Used to live in Glastonbury but now live in Florida, but I return to NE frequently and enjoy visiting Max Fish when I can. My visit earlier this month did not disappoint. Wonderful fresh oysters followed by clam chowder and perfectly cooked tuna for the entre. And, ther was no grumbling when I asked for it to be cooked slightly more than most restaurants like to prepare it.
