Shelton CT. Restaurant advice?

We will be visiting friends in Ct and we will be staying in Sheldon. We are looking for a nice Sunday Brunch Buffet for a group of 8 in a place that is quite and we will not feel rushed.
Thanks for any help you can give. We can also travel to New Haven Area.

            I saw your new post. If you could give me some Ideas of how far from Shelton you would like to venture. Let me know. I thought the two sites I sent would be enough. So when you read this if you want you can send another reply and I will be watching for it. Good luck, Earle

              Earl, We are willing to travel about 20 min....I did appreciate the 2 sites you gave me but love to have peoples personel opinions about places they have been. Thanks to all for your responses.

      2. Dakota in Milford CT is not far and is a huge buffet - - -soup to nuts. People love it. You can ask to be seated in a more quiet area, like the bar. Spacious, so a party of 8 won't feel crowded.
        The best brunch is in New Haven at the Rusty Scupper, right off I-95 in Long Wharf, but I have heard that they are soon closing, so be sure to call--really nice atmosphere there, too, overlooking the harbor--its won awards for its brunch.
        For just breakfast, the Courtyard Marriott in Shelton has a nice place for breakfast.
        Cool place for breakfast in Westport, CT is Zest Cafe.

          Stay away ...far away from Dakota in Milford. They had a vermon problem last year and their food is awful compared to other Dakotas that I have been too. If you do decide to go, don't get the crabcakes in Milford. They are the worst that we have ever had!!!!!

            I totally agree with javaandjaz regarding Dakota in Milford. They have a long way to go to ever get my business back. Not clean! A poor reflection on the chain which isn't all bad.
