Saybrook Fish House

Reviewed By tangohampton - Litchfield, Connecticut

My husband & I have been coming to this restaurant on and off for 20 years. It never disappoints. Fresh fish. Favorite dishes on the menu never change. We love the Buffalo Boom-Boom shrimp app. Crusty, delicious shrimp, mildly tangy sauce & side of blue cheese dressing with carrots & celery. The huge salad with all the fixings that comes with all entrees is served family style with two yummy dressings. Mix them together in a mug for a delicious combo. The stuffed seafood sampler entree is always a treat. Chunks of shrimp in the stuffing. Nice hearty portion. Full bar & excellent wine list. Romantic dining in a booth & family dining at tables. Friendly staff. Ample parking.

La Salle Market & Deli

Reviewed By TRAVELINGIRL_11 - Hartford, Connecticut

Ate here on a Sunday afternoon after kayaking across the street. Super cute spot with outdoor seating along the main road. You order from an extensive menu on the wall and then sit down and they bring it over. They have pizza, sandwiches, wraps, salads (which is what I ordered), baked goods, and even sangria! Highly recommend. Cutest little town.

Great ice cream here, made fresh on premises with some interesting flavors, including a few "spirited" ones for the adults. It's also quite a bit cheaper than Ben and Jerry's. However, the set-up of the creamery is quite disorganized, there aren't a lot of places to sit, and it's right in the middle of a Petals and Paws, a pet store/garden center.The creamery has no register of its own so you have to pay for the ice cream in the pet store, however they are nice enough to let you pay after you finish your ice cream. I would definitely pick up a pint or two next time I go by, as they don't carry tahitian coconut chocolate chip or Kahlua at my local super market ;)

Dunkin' Donuts

Reviewed By radiowitch - Connecticut

My usual order from Dunkin Donuts is a large hot coffee and that's about the extent of it. Today I varied from the norm and made the mistake of ordering a 24-count box of chocolate munchkins. Granted, I have not eaten a munchkin from Dunkin Donuts in years, but I was not expecting the mess inside the box when it was opened. These were "mushkins." Even being told "these are freshly made and still warm" is not an excuse for a "gloppy" mess of goo and glaze, with inedible chocolate doughnut holes. In other words, too doughy, no crispy outside, and far too much "glaze" that has congealed the entire mass together. Unappetizing. To be clear: "freshly glazed" is not the same thing as "baked fresh daily" or "warm from the oven." Silly me...I thought the munchkins and most of their products were pre-made and standardized, in order to not screw them up. The "time to make the doughnuts" at 4 am ads are long gone. I'll stick to the coffee in the future and keep it simple. Just not at this location.

I finally went to Flatbread company after wanting to try it for a long time and I really enjoyed it. My friend and I shared a salad with the delicious goat cheese and the peperoni and mushroom pizza. I thought it was very good and love the fresh ingredients. The blackberry mojito is also excellent. I will definitely be back!

Crown & Hammer Pub

A friendly pub located in historic Collinsville offering a pub style menu with a flair in a cozy yet lively atmosphere. We look forward to serving you!

Reviewed By DesertSusan - Tubac, Arizona

Really great pub atmosphere with excellent food and great service. Our party ordered strip steaks, which were perfectly cooked and served with creamy mashed potatoes and asparagus, and one of the night's Specials, a pasta dish with sausage. Everyone was really pleased with their dish and will look forward to returning.
