New England Clam Chowder

This is the best clam chowder I have ever tried. It helps that their is a beautiful view with the meal but it is truly one of a kind. Everyone should try it.

Seafood Cobb Salad

I was gleefully introduced to Riley’s by friends in the area. From day 1, it became my all time favorite! I always stop for lunch on my way home in upstate NY. Can you imagine eating multiple meals in a restaurant whereby each is as delicious as the last? Some must-have favorites are, Ahi Tuna, the flatbread Margherita, salmon, I could go on however it’s something you must try yourself. I once had tacos which were fantastic but I’m not sure they’re still on the menu. I’m very choosy when it comes to dining out. Riley’s is literally by the sea. Have a sensational meal and feel as if you’re on vacation!

Lobster Mac and Cheese

Just moved to CT for school, so I Googled local restaurants and ended up at Riley's. Tried the lobster Mac and Cheese and I've been dreaming of it since! The serving was huge with giant pieces of lobster. The clam chowder was to die for. Service was friendly and prompt and the view was incredible! My sister will be in town next week, so if Riley's really opens on 3/2, we'll be stopping in for lunch before I take her to the airport! My plans just got so much better!
