Lunch on the way to Newport

Driving from Bridgeport, CT to Newport in a few weeks. Looking for a nice lunch spot on the way to and from.

Got a GREAT rec from Chowhounds a few years back for Cleonice in Ellsworth, ME

Same type of place would be fine.

  1. Claire's in New Haven. Very good. Lots of vegetarian offerings
    Elizabeth's in Madison. Expensive, but very good.
    Clam Castle for fried seafood, very casual in Madison
    Friends and Company in Madison. Homestyle cooking.
    Bill's Seafood in Westbrook. Cash only. Good seafood. Casual

    1. I always stop in Mystic for lunch on my way to Newport. Good places are: Bravo Bravo, Azu, S and P Oyster House, Anthony J's. All are good.

      1. re: InderB

        Thanks to both suggestions - got plenty to choose from

      2. Matunuck Oyster Bar, South Kingstown, RI. Great food and it is also and oyster farm. Not far off of Rt 1

        1. If you are looking for causal:
          Great lobster roles at Lobster Landing in Clinton, super burgers at Haywire in Westbrook, dynamite pizza at Alforno in Old Saybrook. All right off I 95.
