Basil's

"Owner of Greek origin; menu ranges from burgers to Italian to Greek specials on Thursday night".

Reviewed By lifesgood83 - Ellington, Connecticut

If you want good food at a reasonable price, here's the place. The portions are ample. You always can take something home unless you are a huge eater. Their portions are very generous. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. This is not gormet dining nor is it fine dining. But it is good dining! We had the muscles which were excellent, veal marsala, chicken Capone , and veal and sausage cacciatore. We also had 5 drinks among us and the price of the meal was under a $100. Recommend definitely for a good meal out.

J&D pub and Grill

Reviewed By Vinnie B - Connecticut

Stopped here for late lunch flyer moving our son into his college dorm as we happened to be in the area. Large menu selections of salads, pizza hot and cold grinders, bugers and entrees.

Had a large Mediterranean pizza. Pizza had good flavor, but a little too much oil for our liking and the crust was undercooked. Could have used another 5-8 minutes in the oven. Crust tenderness was OK. Pizza is pan style so being undercooked was emphasized by that fact.

6 or so beer selections on tap, plus a modest assortment of bottles.

Service was good. Won't rush back.

They have a lot of different flavors. They have outdoor seating. It's right in the middle of downtown. They open early in the spring and close late in the fall.

This location is better than the average double D. The employees are well trained and very pleasant. Their product is always fresh and well displayed. Parking and drive-thru can be a problem but then that is a good thing because that means they are busy.

Standard Dunkin' Donut facility for fast food for travelers. Hash brown and Egg & Cheese Croissant with coffee are the choice. Service is good and time taken is also satisfactory. Staff looked fully trained.

Willington Pizza House

Pizza that made Willington Famous! Also a wide selection of fresh salads, grinders, dinners and appetizers. 20 beers on tap, large wine selection.

Reviewed By Dee P - Stafford Springs, Connecticut

We enjoy the rustic atmosphere of Willington Pizza, although we have never had a pizza there! I have enjoyed their pizza at teacher workshops over the years, however. Amazing specialties. The servings are enough to satisfy Paul Bunyan, delicious and reasonably priced. If they don't...MoreThanks for the review and the 5 stars!

Sample all the flavors (my favorite is cappuccino crunch). Don't forget to check out the freezer section for the delicious cupcake sundaes or monster cookie sandwiches.

Middle Ground Cafe

Reviewed By gary c - Carolina, Puerto Rico

I was told this place was pretty cool.... and it is..... I went there for a quick lunch, I was working at the high school..... and the people at the school recommended this place for me. I had the coffee Chile and it was very good.... it took an inordinate amount of time to be delivered to me, but was good. Not real expensive and certainly inhabited by the locals.... the menu looked appetizing but I didn't want a whole lot to eat. A train crept by while I was eating and it couldn't have been more than 2 meters from the restaurant... it was neat... I took a video of it and the floor was vibrating.... it was really neat!!! Almost like visiting Mayberry, NC and seeing Andy and Barney eating at the table next to me... I would go back!!!

Willington Pizza Too

Reviewed By BackHomeOH - CT

We SO MISS this local gem that we frequented for close to 20 years...We had no idea after years of travel & living elsewhere, that EVERY pizza eaten since, has always had to be compared to this gem. We quickly found out, there is NO comparison for us! Even my 90 yr old mother, still remembers the Red Potato & asks why cant we fly one in. Miss the regular pizza too along with the Seafood. One day we will get back, BUT just want to let you guys know, we are still devoted fans!
