They are currently closed due to a fire but went every Saturday for breakfast. Pancakes are awesome. Omelets delicious. Best burgers I have ever had. Can't wait till they reopen.

We went on a Sunday morning for breakfast and were not disappointed. Lots of choices on the menu and the pancakes are HUGE - just 1 fills the entire plate! A word of advice, though: Go early or you'll have to wait to be seated.

Not only the best tasting but the biggest and best selection. And that's not all--a large bar and an excellent dinner/after movie menu with the besst burgers around. Finish the meal off with a short walk to the seawall on Long Island Sound.

Just like Westbrook Christie's this place is amazing. Bring a big appetite as the food is excellent and plentiful. Outstanding pancakes, breakfast meats and egg selections. A "must experience" location.

Spur of the moment visit after a movie Christmas week. We had not visited here since it was the Dolly Madison and it is still that nice, comfy atmosphere and home-style (in a good way) food. Given it's proximity to the beach and the upscale...More

The dining area can seat about 20 comfortably. There is additional seating in the bar. I would call Cristy's for specifics.
