The clam chowder was great, as was the spicy calamari. The scallops also very good. Wonderful hazelnut tiramisu. It's a pretty place. Very good service.

My husband and I go to aspen regularly. We also had our wedding rehearsal dinner here. It is always excellent. Our favorite thing is the grilled romain salad. So wonderful! The specials are always interesting and different. The food is extremely well thought out. We have never been disappointed!

Nice atmosphere, great service and yummy food. Cool jazz playing over sound system. We loved the chocolate cake with bananas foster sauce! Soup of the day and grilled romaine salad were delicious. Salmon done perfectly.

Took friends for an evening out & dinner. Everyone had a something different and everyone was pleased with their meal. I personally had steak and it was one of the best steaks I have had in some time and it was cooked as I requested & done perfectly.

A very nice place, with new fornitures and a cozy little fireplace in the middle of the main room. I have been here twice and I had fish and chips and a burger. Once I also had the local fish soup as a starter (New England powder if i'm not wrong) and it was absolutely great. Remember, fish and chips... More

Nice surprise as we have not been here in awhile. Atmosphere is jazzy.. music was at the right volume. Very relaxing. When we took a look at the menu we were very happy to see the prices and selection. We choose the noodle bowl and I had the pasta and tuna in a pesto cream basil sauce! Out of this... More

At the Saybrook Counrty Barn, we went to Aspen for lunch. Five adults and a baby. The staff was attentive and very nice. We arrived rightvat opening and after ordering the service was a bit slow. We shared apps, a salad and the pork dumplings. Both were good but the dumplings were not as spicy as anticipated. Three of us... More
