Review: "The Place", Guilford CT

After seeing a few reviews on this site, my wife and I decided to go.

Bring money, lots of it.

Bring your own beer.

Bring a bib.

Oh yeah, bring money.

As other posts have stated, The Place is an outdoor restaurant where you sit on cut logs and get served seafood that has been either grilled or boiled. In the case of a piece of salmon, they steam it in tin foil.

The menu is small and consists of lobster, clams with a special tomato based sauce (kind of like cocktail), mussels in garlic, steak, and chicken.

Nothing fancy at all, and certainly nothing you can't do in your own backyard grill. The grilled corn is absolutely terrible--both our pieces came out burned, and it was TOUGH--I had to floss my teeth with 50# test monofilament afterwards. The clams and mussels are quite good though.

It's a good place to go if you want to have a cookout, just not at your own house, or a friends, or a relatives, or at your neighbors.....get my drift? :)
