How time flies. It is our 20th anniversary and we are so grateful for the support the Restaurant has received from the community and beyond. Our family owned restaurant has continued to grow giving us the opportunity to support Rowayton in return. What a gift of a relationship.
We are also so grateful for our staff. Our managers, wait staff, bar staff and kitchen staff, most of whom have been with us for over 15 years. The dedicated staff know you by name and know your favorite food and drink. I have seen the bartender notice a customer walking toward the restaurant and start to prepare his favorite drink so it is waiting on the bar when he arrives. Cool!
The Restaurant staff continues to evolve based on the needs of our valued customers and the environment . We have tremendous respect for our oceans near and far, we love our local farmers and bring in fresh local produce and eggs whenever available. The menu evolves based on the availability of sustainable seafood and plentiful fish and then decorated with homemade sauces and sides.
We are so excited to add the additional seating to what was once the loading dock for the lobster boats, now available for sunsets, dinners to go from the Seafood Market and occasional live music shows. The view is spectacular, so glad you have come to enjoy it as much as we do.
There is so much history here. The Restaurant was an original oyster house, followed by the old time favorite spot, Capt’n Henry’s. Some of us remember those days. The once lobster pound, Rowayton Lobster Co op, took in all the lobster catch when owner, Kevin Conroy was 18. ( We won’t tell you how old he is now……) Driving to the Fulton Fish Market at 2 am to buy the freshest catch available, the Fulton Fish Market, only opened in the night so the fish was cold and delicious, then bringing the van full of fresh fish back to Rowayton Seafood Market to unload for the day. Good old days. It’s a great story, and you are all a part of it.
Our anniversary begins today August 1, 2016. We will be adding special menu items, specialty drinks and anniversary apparel during the coming months and celebrating with an anniversary party here for all of you. We will have food and drinks, live music to honor our historic sight. Date to be announced
Thank you!!!! From all of us at The Restaurant and Rowayton Seafood Market
