The Restaurant at Rowayton Seafood, located at 89 Rowayton Avenue in Rowayton, CT, has been a community favorite since 1996. It boasts the best waterfront location in the area and is deeply rooted in the history of Rowayton. Tucked alongside the restaurant, Rowayton Seafood Market resides in an old fishing shack that was once the oldest operating Lobster Co-Op on the Long Island Sound. Today, you will see our chefs and staff visit the market for the freshest seafood for our diners.

Along with Rowayton Seafood Market, we have partnered with the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Seafood Watch Program to serve sustainable seafood in an effort to support healthy oceans and promote species regeneration.


The Restaurant has been rated "Excellent" by Zagat, voted “Best Seafood” in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 by Darien, New Canaan and Rowayton Magazine's Best of the Gold Coast Awards and awarded “Best Seafood Restaurant” by Connecticut Magazine's Fairfield County voters in 2006, 2008,2009, 2010, 2011.
