Guilford Mooring

On a recent drive down Connecticut’s coast, we stopped in the historic town of Guilford for lunch. We passed through the town green, choosing instead to eat near the water. Without recommendations or much hesitation, we chose the Guilford Mooring purely for its location among the Guilford docks.

Although there were only a few dining inside the glassed in restaurant, we ate outside under an umbrella where several others were enjoying the warm early summer air and slight breeze.

Slices of rare tuna, hard boiled eggs, black olives, and bacon on lettuce.

The lobster salad, normally served in a roll and with fries, was served simply on a plate for our gluten-free diner. Yum!

The restaurant is located at 505 Whitfield Street in Guilford, Connecticut, just off Route 95.
