I was alone so I sat at the bar. Staff was friendly and the place was very busy. The appetizer of steamer clams was delicious and a huge portion. The restaurant's specialty lobster was quite good and the lobster was delicious.

Unlike other fine dining options in Wallingford, Westbrook Lobster cares about you time. The waitstaff is very friendly and helpful. Food arrives very promptly and the red brick atmosphere is conductive to conversations. I've hosted many successful business dinners here and highly recommend it.

Sometimes in life, you just have to laugh at the absurdity of the situation. Enjoy life and don't sweat the small things. Life is too short. I attempted many times to resolve your minor issue (six hours after your order was picked up) and after...More
