Had the most delicious meal here and also got to sit on the deck area and look at the view. You must get oysters here as well as a main. Food was presented perfectly and the taste held up. Very cool place to go if you are from out of town .

This is a fantastic water-side seafood restaurant. The staff were relaxed and helpful. We had the tuna flat bread, oysters, and lobster. All great. Don't miss the blue berry tart. All that washed down with their own chardonnay. Will not forget the experience.

After a long day at a convention in New York, headed down to my old stomping grounds in Westport. Came across this place out of a review on the phone. So glad we found it. We both had a great seafood experience, and the chowder was some of the best ever. Great service, great food, great view. All the way... More

Great food with spectacular views of the bay. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Liked it so much we went twice in one week. Great New England cuisine.

Been for dinner date night and family brunch, and both were excellent. Make a reservation as it sure gets crowded. New England clam chowder is fantastic. Love the decor and location, and will definitely be back.

Great view, if you're well know there, otherwise you're in the back. However, come spring and summer, you're not going to want to be by the non-shaded windows. The menu shows good variety for all tastes. It contains NYC pricing levels, but welcome to West Fairfield county. Book early for a seat, the wait is too long otherwise. Parking is... More

I've been in Connecticut for two months and this is the first time I felt like the seafood I ordered might have been sleeping in the ocean last night. There was one small service snafu, and the dessert was ho-hum for a high end restaurant, but otherwise, I loved the experience. Good Cobbs Point oysters. Fresh swordfish, well prepared. Limited...

Had a lunchtime meal with girlfriends here! It was a glorious day and the views over the water were spectacular! The staff were incredibly helpful as we had a number of allergies between us. The food was stunning - lovely knowing it's so fresh! A real memorable meal with friends!
