“The "New Kid in Town"”
Review of Broad Street Bar and Bistro - CLOSED

Broad Street Bar and Bistro
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 31, 2014

This local establishment was a delightful place to share a meal with family. Located on the Main street in the Village of Pawatuck, CT it is a welcome addition to the local area. The menu is varied with an ethnic flair. The meals are ample, and varied for most tastes. The presentation is artistic and shows attention to detail.

This is a must on your list of restaurants to visit if you are in the Westerly/ Pawatuck/ Mystic areas.
Located on Broad St. Pawatuck (Route 1) just before the RR Bridge.

Our first 5-star review in over 30 reviews across the USA is right here in "Downtown Pawcatuck-Westerly".
Comforting ambiance, friendly/knowledgeable/helpful staff, terrific food at a surprisingly modest price. We have paid twice the fare in other local establishments and not of the same quality. Sheila, who served us, was delightful and made us feel like we were at her home. Easy to overlook when crossing the bridge between Rhode Island and Connecticut it should not be missed. Lunch, dinner or a quiet friendly drink this is the place to be. This is our new "go-to" place.

I never thought I would give a place 5 stars but this place hit the mark in every key point. Service 5 stars. Drinks five stars. Food 5 stars. Value 5 stars. Atmosphere 5 stars.

They had a really cool selection of cocktails and of course the most important thing is were they watered down or week? No! Was there an actual good bartender making them or a lesser experienced person slapping drinks together with no real knowledge of the proper mix rates which is fairly common. In this day and age where more complicated exotic drinks are common you need a mixologist to pull these drinks off. Our drinks were amazing!

Now to the food. We both had the braised pork shank and it was exceptional. For apps we had the mussels and the orangeina. Both very good. What was not expected was how the food was priced. The food is high end but the prices were not.

A couple next to us struck up a conversation with us. They gentleman said it was the 5th time they were here and the food has been consistent.

This place is a really nice addition to Westerly and I hope they make it. I can only find one thing to critique and it's pretty small in the overall aspect of things. Bread and olive oil are served at the table. Usually if you are getting just olive oil it's of a very authentic and flavorful brand. This was not the case it had no flavor. It would be a nice touch if they had a flavored infused olive oil or some kind home made spread creation which is common these days to serve with the bread.

Stopped for lunch after hearing about this place a few times. The food was outstanding and very fresh! (Lunch on a Wednesday afternoon)
Calamari appetizer - delicious! lightly fried, perfectly crispy and VERY fresh
Burgers - Great size, cooked perfectly, right off the grill
Service was very good (it was not busy). The redo of the interior is very cool. We are anxious to go at night for drinks/dinner.
