I love this place! The bar area is on the small size, but staff & patrons are all so friendly. It's that kind of atmosphere. Friendly. The hostess at the door greets with a smile, the bartenders are attentive and personable, the service is great and the food is delicious. If you love macaroni & cheese or tomato soup~ this... More

A business associate who works in the area had suggested this restaurant for a business lunch. The gentleman who greeted us was very pleasant, and helped make sure we were being helped later after the meal. Our server was nice and the food was scrumptious. I had a salmon wrap and my friend the mac and cheese. We were both... More

Came for lunch on a Saturday. Had the tenderloin salad and tuna steak salad. Both delicious. Started with the chili which was spicy but missing something... maybe salt? Anyway, service was excellent and will be back.

Went mid week for a birthday dinner. We found parking right in front, and were seated promptly. They have a nice selection of local craft beers, and our choices were served cold, and quickly. We all had sandwich items, and the grilled cheese with onion jam and tomato soup was excellent. All in all, we were all pleasantly delighted with... More

Excellent food and staff! Very pleasant atmosphere. The bar is comfortable and the dining area is just like "home! There is a large fireplace in the bar area and it's comfy eating in this area of the restaurant. Love it!

I love the living room at Home! Especially on Sunday evening when the jazz/blues musicians provide a serenade. The atmosphere is cozy, warm and comfortable. The food never disappoints. The service is friendly and personal. I feel at home here whether with friends, on a date, or even relaxing alone--and as a single woman there are few places I would... More

Having struck out in New Haven trying to get into Pepe's we decided to stop somewhere on the way back home. We picked Home in Branford almost at random. We did see that they were rated highly. They were right. We had a delicious lunch. My husband had the burger and salad. It was perfectly cooked with yummy toppings. I... More

I wish I could give a stellar review based on the atmosphere and the staff, but it's simply not enough. I visited first in October and wasn't impressed with the greasy burger and salad. But I gave it a second chance today and the salad was still very oily, the turkey burger nothing special, and the butternut soup lacked a... More

My husband and I were travelling from PA up to MA to see a concert and visit some friends. We took the day off and took our time travelling up. We decided to stop in Branford for some lunch. We stopped in to a brewery originally thinking we could have a drink and some munchies, but they didn't offer food.... More
