Had a lobster tail and filet steak. It certainly is not Ruth Chris' but then again neither are the prices! Overall very good; Good Service also.

Finally and after eating here on many occasions, we can now say that we were greatly satisfied with both our food and service. It goes on to prove that service can be improved by motivating servers. Our server, Jennnifer, went out of her way to be helpful. We ordered the Shrimp, Lobster Tails and Crab Legs platter. It is probably... More

Well we have not been in for a while, we stopped in after a long evening of shopping at the busy mall in Danbury. We were happy to see Marcella S working in the bar area so we sat in a booth and proceeded to have an amazing dinner and great service. We observed Marcella tending the bar, working very... More

Ate here on an off weeknight, and food was the norm for this chain, but service was very attentive and quick, always a pleasure to find.

It is not enough to serve good food. We were seated at a table where there was no server assigned. Yes, we came a bit early for dinner, but then you should assign tables according to your available servers. Then after having a good meal with drinks, your server "ran away" with my credit card. I had to go and... More

The menu was extensive and I really enjoyed my Seafood Chowder and the Lobster, but one of our group had the wrong meal served. It was clearly the server's fault, and at first he disputed it, but eventually offered the meal free, which wasn't what he wanted - he just wanted what he ordered, and an apology that it was...

Known for their fresh seafood including a wide variety of fish plus lobster, and shrimp. The menu is fairly extensive, they offer beer, wine and mixed drinks. They also bring a basket of their famous warm cheese biscuits that melt in your mouth. Service is very good and the food is tasty.

This was a must stop on our trip!! We had at least two of them in Mass, but they closed down. This made me sad. We had a great time and great food. I hope to go back to Connecticut just to stop here. Our waiter was very knowledgeable. He helped my husband decide on what to drink with which... More
