Where to eat in CT along 15 or 84?

We travel from NJ to MA frequently. We are looking for a place in CT along 15 or 84 to stop for lunch/dinner. We like all types of food, casual, kid friendly.

    1. Katz's deli is right off exit 59 of the Merritt good corned beef, pastrami, salads etc., Also off that exit is Westville Seafood, I have only been there once, but had good fried clams. Off of exit 61 is the Glenwood Drive in great hot dogs, about a mile up on Whitney Ave.
      Lots of chain restaurants off of exit 60.
      I can't help you off of 84

          Glad you liked it. I did not mention the matzoh ball soup, try it if you go again.

      2. Penny's Diner is in Fairfield, CT, right off the Merritt on Black Rock Turnpike. It's our go-to half-way between spot for any type of meal, any time of day. Reliable Greek diner food, kid friendly, for sure, clean bathrooms, and easy access on and off the parkway.

          Thanks susan1353 - we hit Penny's on the way home - good food - great service. With a cranky kid & husband it was nice that everyone could get what they wanted. Breakfast for hubby, greek salad for me and an icecream sundae to pacify my daughter!

        2. Off I-84 exit 16 - Carol Peck's Good News Cafe

          1. Depends on the kids, but Barcelona in Fairfield, right off exit 44 on Rte. 15 is a good bet. My kids like it, and the Fairfield location is the most kid-friendly.
