Went on a Saturday afternoon, it was super hot and busy. The food is always good though. Very fresh and tasty. Mariner's Wharf is a must for us on every visit to CT and well worth it every time.

The seafood, service and location of this restaurant are perfect. It was a real pleasure to eat here. There are plenty of choices and they do have a decent kids menu. Really enjoyed my meal.

Sitting on the deck and watching the people at the beach, enjoying great food, sipping great wine, listening to a band, that's the best place for spending a lazy afternoon.
