We were staying down the road at Water's Edge and did not want to eat at the resort's restaurant on checkout day. We decided to look for somewhere to have a leisurely breakfast. We noticed many cars in the Christy's parking lot and a sign promising breakfast, so we decided to take a chance. Upon entering, we notice the long... More

My family and I enjoy going to Christie's, and the restaurant is always busy. They have a few dozen types of pancakes (which are HUGE), and they can mix-and-match if you have something else in mind. They also offer any of the dishes you would expect from a breakfast place, and everything is made fresh. The only complaint I have... More

I stopped here on the way to Newport and had the best breakfast I have had in years. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was great.

I had read great reviews of this restaurant which is why we came here for breakfast after spending the night down the road. We knew by the packed parking lot and line to be seated that it was going to be worth the wait (maybe 10 minutes) & it was! What I read about the best corn beef hash is... More

Good food but you can't be in a hurry! Waitresses seem over whelmed or they don't care about customer service?!?!

Quirky restaurant. We tried to get in twice and there was a line both days but well worth the wait!!

Whenever I come to Westbrook, CT I always arrange my schedule to eat here at many times as I can. It is a place that locals eat and the food is outstanding. Love the different types of pancakes and French toast for breakfast and their Yankee Pot Roast is out of this world.

Being a local from Westbrook, I am so lucky to have this place in town! Great food, huge portions, nice staff, good atmosphere & champagne! The place may looked packed when you go to eat there but there is additional parking around the side and back. Out-of-towners: this is a must stop! And you can get breakfast all day long!... More
