Seafood
Saybrook Fish House is the spot to go to in the area when craving seafood and great wine. The venue uses quality ingredients that really make their dishes standout. The seafood used comes from the New England coast. Saybrook Fish House is open for business seven days a week. It's a great eatery for celebrations and for fun date nights.From the raw bar, diners can dig into jumbo shrimp cocktail and oysters on the half shell. For appetizers, the restaurant offers everything from fried mozzarella and mussels in white wine, to baked mushrooms and crab cakes. Clam lovers must try the fried whole belly clam entrée, which is fried to perfection. Another seafood favorite is the king crab legs served with decadent drawn butter.

    The food was delicious ! Lots of food for the price however , the carpet was very dirty . Looks like no one bothered to clean or vacuum under a few of the tables , especially ours . It was loaded with crumbs . Also , I’ll say this … my college student is a part time server at Longhorn Steakhouse in Concord and she is the shining example of a server, but our server could have cared less . Not friendly , like it was expected for her to ask us how the food was , she never asked if we wanted another drink ( hello , upsell ) , and she seemed almost bothered when we asked for extra dressing and tartar sauce ( hello , seafood !) . I get everyone has bad days but servers , let’s face it , work for tips . Great service and a “ clean “ eating area is what bring customers back .

    Our first visit, I emailed our friend that recommended last night to thank him for his insight. Easy to get to, about 1 mile off I91. The atmosphere was very New England fish house. Menu & specials was great. Our wait person, Morgan, suggested different options and was very attentive to our experience. The family style salad to fruit plate after our meals was not expected but was a great value. We will be back, and would recommend this establishment as place to go to for seafood meals.

    Overall a nice experience. Our waitress was one of the best I've ever had. Food was mostly fresh and well prepared. The cup of fish chowder that could be ordered as an addition to the meal was loaded with fish and had a tasty broth. The side salad was fresh with well prepared house made dressing. The grilled swordfish was a bit fishy through the dark blood vein but the rest of the fish steak was fresh tasting, seasoned well and moist. The swordfish came with asparagus and mashed potatoes. The sweet potato fries that came with the coconut shrimp dish were very crispy and some of the best I've ever had. Coconut shrimp was not well seasoned, but were adequate unfortunately the breading falling off very easily. There was a nice bread basket that started the meal with warm bread and some butter and breadsticks. A nice touch. There was a small birthday party in a back room that did make the room a little noisy. Would recommend for an enjoyable meal.

    We had a great experience. It was refreshing to be able to have a table conversation without all the background noise like most restaurants. We enjoyed the food. My one suggestion is that the waitstaff inform the patrons that you are getting family style salad and a big bowl of fruit at the end. We would have chosen differently if we knew.

    It’s been many years, since we had been to Saybrook Fish House . The standards I remembered from decades ago are still in place and make the experience so enjoyable.  The entrées are great and I appreciated taking some home for my lunch the next day. I had a fried grouper special with Sweet potato fries. The bread basket, A family style salad for the table with wonderful homemade dressings is still great. I was surprised, but then reminded of the standard for family style hot vegetables with the meal . I had totally forgotten about the end of meal food bowl. Marianne What’s a wonderful server. We will definitely be going back!

    Wanted to try Saybrook Fish House hadn't been there for awhile. Food was ok but my sordfish was a bit dry. Could have used some buttery sauce. My wife's shrimp and scallopes over pasta not so good. Very small scallops. A bit pricy, nice atmosphere, very good service. Would try again but get a different meal
