Nice place for a quick bite or they offer an upstairs room for large parties. I had the lamb salad and french onion soup. Both were great. Bar area can be a little loud but there is outdoor seating when the weather is nice.

A rainy evening in May seemed like a good opportunity to try the liver and onions at the Penny Lane Pub in Old Saybrook. We started with a soup - sweet potato and cinnamon. Won't do that again. The liver and onions, though overcooked, was...More
