  1. Pat's Kountry Kitchen in Old Saybrook is very good for groups like yours. Lots of things the kids will like and a pretty good job on adult fare, too.

    1. How old are the kids? Lenny and Joe's in Madison is very kid friendly. Pizza Works in Old Saybrook has a very fun train theme. Taste of China in Clinton has great Chinese food and is good for a group.

      1. While you're in Essex head into Olive Oyls (on Main Street heading down to the river on the left) for delicious store baked cookies, cakes and treats..also, good coffee...
