The food is excellent, the specials are moderately priced and very good. On Wednesday evenings they have Trivia which is lots of fun, and they have prizes. The servers especially Beth and Alex are friendly and attentive. Great place to eat year round.

Prices for seafood are lower than other restaurants. Seems that most customers are coming for the bar. Food is good and service is average. Have eaten here several times in past 3 years, it is consistant. Will eat here again in the future.

The old Yankee vintage profile from the street does not convey the busy sports bar scene interior. Lots of sports screens and a young working group scene. However, the food was outstanding. We loved the enormous twin lobsters and the salads were fresh and generous. The wait staff didn't levy and uncharge either when we shared! Worth a return for... More

The hand-made food does not come off a Cisco truck. I've eaten at Litchfield's about 30 times and have been disappointed only once (don't try the peanut butter burger). The bar has a great happy hour 3-6 M-F and most customers are local or are here every summer. Sit far from the bar if you have kids with you --... More

My friend wanted lobster and someone recommended coming here. My friend was so turned off by the noise she wanted to leave, but we stayed. But she also did not order her lobster. Food was good, but don't remember what we ordered. If you like the bar scene and a noisy place, this is for you, otherwise, don't bother. Sorry.

Food was good. Pet friendly in the outside seating area. They have a bar area. They also have a pool table. Food was a little pricey for what you get.

Came early afternoon after trying a well known place that was very crowded. Was seated right away . Had a bowel of seafood chowder the serving size was a little more than cup size, but it was excellent.

I have to say I am kind of picky when it comes to Lobster Rolls and this place is perfect and consistent! My friends had pizza that was hot and delicious to the point it makes me want to go back. The nachos were so good my 94 year old mother-In-law even got In on the action. The staff was... More

Nothing to write home about here. Clam chowder was good. Bacon wrapped scallops were ok but something missing - the scallop was a little overdone too. Wait staff was friendly.

We went at a quiet time and were seated. Then we watched other groups come and be served. We got a server's attention. She said she'd be right over. We waited. We watched others get their food. Finally, we left. Nothing is worth such poor service or to be ignored.
