I miss not living closer to this exceptional little "hole in the wall" because it's always great! Fresh is the operative word here. And they're open all year round. On this visit, my wife and I shared a lobster roll and a broiled swordfish dinner to eat in. Now, don't expect 5 star seating and a luxurious dining room here.... More

This is where I go when I get a 'jones' for fish and chips, clams, scallops and, well, just about any seafood dish, and I don't want to eat them sitting in a restaurant. Sure you can grab a table and eat it here but that's not what they're selling. This is possibly the best take away food joint in... More

At a family wedding a friend from Florida asked if I knew of a Fish & Chips spot in CT called Westfair. I admitted no, but was intrigued and decided to follow-up. With Fairfield County traffic what it is, it took two attempts to get there. But was it worth it. Having lived in lower Fairfield county for 48 years,... More

I reviewed this place in Summer 2011, and gave it five stars. Five years later, I'm happy to report that it's as good as ever. A couple of evenings ago, my wife and I bought a couple of Fish and Chip dinners, plus a side order of belly clams, and took them to Southport Beach, for a relaxed meal while... More

We live a few miles from this fish and chip place and have loved it for years. This summer, we took a trip to bar harbor Maine, sampling seafood as we went. I am actually writing this from a hotel room in New Orleans where we, on another family vacation, are eating some very tasty seafood in some very authentic... More

Was in the area and decided to stop here with the kids based on the reviews. Walked in and as we were looking at the menu noticed no credit or debit cards accepted. Really??? Ridiculous - left without eating because we had no cash on us.

Fish and chips are very fresh and good at the old time fish monger and lunch spot. Not much ambiance but great quality.

Have been to WF Fish N Chips on numerous occasions. I did a take out order last night. The fish was horrible and there were barely any chips in the order. If this was my first time there I would definitely not go back. Not sure if I'll give it a go again.

My husband and I found this absolutely delicious place to eat while on a short trip to Comnecticut. Our trip was only Two days. The lobster rolls were so good we ate here twice! The service was excellent and the food just delicious. This was our first lobster roll and we can't wait to go back for more.
