Where to go for casual drinks & conversation Waterford, East Lyme area?

I am meeting with a very old friend I haven't seen in many years. I am looking for a place where we can meet in the middle. Would like a place that is conducive to good conversation, drinks, possibly some bar food. Not looking for a stuffy place but prefer to avoid the family restaurants & casino. Anyone have suggestions?

  1. I would suggest the Black Sheep Pub in East Lyme. As long as you avoid the height of the drinking hours (Thurs, Fri, Sat after 9), you should be able to find a cozy corner to tuck yourself into. The food is a little pricier, but nicer than your typical pub food. Quite impressive looking too, lots of wood, leather, and a fireplace or two.
