We have eaten here many times and it is always consistently delicious. Creative specials! Wonderful small plates and tapas. Don't miss the bolognase it is awesome. Great cosmos.

“DONT GO!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Waited 10 Minutes for our first drink. Expensive. Menu is not clear. Service reminds me of a school cafeteria. Restaurant needs lots of work. Not saying much more because I don't want to relive this horrific experience. Not going back.

One of the best restaurants in Old Saybrook. Great tapas. Especially the cod bites and blue cheese and apple drizzled with honey

We have visited The Red Hen on several occasions and never been disappointed. We often wonder why we don't go more often....But....now on Wed's they offer wine flights, beer flights and drink flights....plus Tappas , very yummy. This place has great food and a great bar. A spot to not miss. Best HH in the area !!!!!!

“A Great Eatery in Old Saybrook”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We were looking for a restaurant that we hadn't been to on the Connecticut shoreline. Checking online we saw nice reviews oft the Red Hen. We were not disappointed. The service by our server, Marcy was attentive and very helpful with entree selections. The menu has a great balance, with my wife having one of the best angus burgers in her life. I had the baked cod and is was terrific. The staff worked as a team, and there was a pleasant co- worker who may have been the manager. He took our order when a large table was having their drink order taken by Marcy. Teamwork in a restaurant is always the sign that other parts in the restaurant (like the kitchen) are working well. We will be back, and soon.
