My last experience at this restaurant, which I've been frequenting for years, wasn't so great, so we decided to try it again after over a year's lapse. Big improvement! The staff continues to be top notch and much friendlier and warmer than other places. The food quality and quantity have also improved, so I would now definitely recommend it. The baked stuffed shrimp, a Valentine's Day special, should stay on the menu!

Now for the problems: Although this restaurant treats customers very well once inside, the process of getting in is often horrendous. Since my last visit I've developed a temporary disability, and require handicapped parking. ALL the spaces in front are always reserved for takeout and the handicapped parking is at the rear. Last night I had to park almost a block away. Once inside, we were told that the wait was 15 - 20 minutes. FORTY FIVE minutes later we were seated. (This was 45 minutes spent standing up!) The waiting area is extremely crowded, with few seats and people packed like a Tokyo subway at rush hour. This is an extremely unpleasant way to begin an evening, and I'm pretty sure was the reason that ALL the other 99's closed in Connecticut. It's a real shame, because otherwise it's a really nice place to eat!

Out shopping and armed with gift cards, we stopped by 99 for a mid-week dinner. We were seated immediately and our server, Lauren, came right over to get our drink orders. She was super friendly, fast and efficient.
We were pleasantly surprised by the variety and pricing. In the competitive "chain" restaurant market, you must offer abundant, reasonably priced food, which we found true at 99. We also found our meals to be cooked perfectly with very little wait-time.
On a night when you don't feel like cooking, or when noone can agree on what to prepare, 99 can offer the family a tasty, unexpensive variety of foods in a comfortable, casual setting.

We frequent the 99 House about once a week, usually eating at the bar and starting off with the small plate potato skins and gold fever boneless wings, which are the best! The bar staff is so friendly and attentive. Love the Pineapple Martinis as well as the Mom's Time Out. I usually order the Fit For You Seasoned Salmon, which has steamed broccoli, grilled tomatoes and grilled asparagus. It's always perfectly cooked and just melts in your mouth. Also love the Broiled Sirloin Tips, the BBQ Turkey Tips, Chicken & Sausage Al Forno (which is a huge portion) and the Pork Tenderloin Tips. All the staff is so friendly and love the food choices.
