We love the happy hour at this restaurant. The best beers and food around and happy hour menu is extensive and delicious. The bar service is always great and the selection of craft and local beers are wonderful. The Rhode Island Clam Chowder and baked stuffed clams are just some of my favorite foods offered there.

Remember the saying, "don't judge a book by it's cover?" Westbrook Lobster is a prime example of why that saying is very true. The outside looks like a gussied up industrial building and the interior is a well appointed welcoming casual space. You have your choice of well spaced tables or cozy booths. The staff is well trained, attentive without... More

Three adults went for dinner. Busy and fun looking happy hour. Seafood meals were great. Service was great. Splurged on dessert which we enjoyed as well! Try the fried apples. Maybe we just had a good night but we will go back.

I have been here several times as my brother lives in Old Saybrook. I had the lobster QUESADILLA. The lobster was very tough and rubbery, and hard to eat. It also had no flavor. The beans had a chemical taste, and the quesadilla sauce had very little taste, and not like any quesadilla I have had. The shrimp seemed to... More

This placed has changed a lot since we were last there but not for the better. We waited 1/2 hour for our steamers as appetizers. Luckily we refused to order until they were delivered. The couple across from us got their appetizers and then their main course 2 minutes later. Obviously, the kitchen has issues. We though it was overpriced... More

Huge menu. A little pricey, I think. I like eating in the bar area, which has many tables. There, they have a Small Plates menu. You can have some of the full menu items, but about half as much. Female bartender is very nice and efficient; don't know about the others. In the main restaurant, it is family-oriented. Noisy, due... More

The restaurant was only about 10% full.we waited at least 15 minutes for our waitress to bring menus, and then at least 25 to place our order. The two waitress seemed... More
