OK. Now is not the time for outdoor dining, but a few months ago it was! We had nice German food out on the patio next to the restaurant. The indoor area looked cozy, but we were looking to enjoy the evening air. We also...More

I absolutely love this restaurant. I have been several times, with friends, on date night and with my kids and we have always had successful and delicious meals. We love the käse spaetzle, the curry wurst, the salads (my favorite is the Spinach salad), the...More

Enjoyed seafood with zucchini, stuffed cabbage and pork tenderloin. Good size portions. The pork was moist and tasty., and came with brazen red cabbage and toasty potatoes. The stuffed cabbage didn't need cheese on it. The seafood with zucchini was tasty.

Immerse yourself in Westport beer garden with cuts of meat to gorge on and drown your troubles on great beer selection and reisling. Go with your friends and family and share everything.

We approached the "larder' with trepidation but have now returned twice, enjoying hospitable service, an excellent bar, and a menu that transcends hooves and poultry. The kitchen is consistent and good, prices fair, atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

Located in the basement of the former Town Hall (enter from the right side of the building), I enjoyed lunch here with friends. The menu is different from most places in the area -- definitely many German / Austrian style dining options. I opted for...More

As I understand, the people who own this restaurant also own Walrus & Carpenter, a rib place in Bridgeport. After dining at Rothbard tonight, I can see the similarities in both venues: below average food and poor service. The Reisling, at $15 per glass, was...More
